Chances are, you probably own a black coat, and you're probably sick of said black coat. And if you aren't, well, we are, which is why we're warming up to a richer shade—camel—to take our winter outerwear to the next level. Evidently, celebrities are doing the same. These days, it seems like all our favorite stars are upping their street-style game with a camel coat. And it's easy to see why—the caramel hue is intrinsically elegant, conveying sophistication that black just doesn't impart quite as easily. It's also a shade that commands attention without being too in-your-face, unlike, say, canary yellow or fire engine-red. Finally, it's completely wearable, since it does fall in the neutral family.
1. Victoria Beckham
Leave it to VB to look this posh during a flight—she committed to the camel shade and coordinated her topper with a pair of matching pants, breaking up the neutral shade with a black sweater, a leopard-print tote, and cap-toe pumps.
2. Emma Watson
Snapped en route to the True Cost premiere, the British actress epitomized elegance in a camel coat that brightened up her dark separates.
3. Chrissy Teigen
The expectant model grounded her sweet floral-print dress with a sleek camel coat and suede booties.
4. Cody Horn
The actress-slash-model chose to treat her camel robe coat like a dress, belting it shut and styling it with over-the-knee boots.
5. Diane Kruger
Kruger proved that a camel coat has the sartorial power to elevate even gymwear. She styled hers over mesh leggings and colorful sneaks.
6. Gigi Hadid
The model-of-the-moment embraced monochromatism with a camel coat casually draped over her warm satin Self-Portrait separates. The finishing touches? Mirrored Ray-Ban aviators and nude pumps.
7. Sienna Miller
Miller's off-duty style was on-point when she topped her knotted button-down and cuffed gray skinnies with a long camel coat, round sunnies, and Gucci furry loafers (aka one of the most coveted pieces of 2015).
8. Jennifer Lawrence
Jlaw was the picture of ladylike perfection in a camel trench-like coat that she belted over a coral dress and styled with pale blue sandals.
9. Gigi Hadid
Another day, another tonal look from Hadid. She went with a deep camel hue, color-coordinating her coat with her turtleneck and suede booties. She broke up the shade with a pair of cuffed boyfriend jeans.
10. Olivia Wilde
Take a cue from Wilde who looked statuesque in a long fitted camel coat, which dressed up her white sweater and jeans.
11. Chrissy Teigen
Teigen sure loves her camel coats—for an outing in N.Y.C., the model-cookbook author delivered another one of her chic looks, in which she styled a LWD with a sweeping camel coat and ivory pumps.
