My New Favorite Camel Wrap Coat
The two categories in your closet I say you should invest in? Outerwear and handbags. Both of these make a statement. Even if you’re wearing a tee and jeans…throw on a gorgeous coat and you instantly elevate your look. Some other advantages of having a high-quality coat are that you look sophisticated any time you wear it, it easily pulls an outfit together with little effort, and it keeps you very warm! I recently ordered this gorgeous camel wrap coat by Max Mara I’m excited to share my thoughts!

I’ve had my eye on this iconic camel hair Max Mara wrap coat ever since I signed it out for a photoshoot back in 2012 from Saks. Nothing feels as luxe or as soft as this coat. The color is super versatile and it’s the perfect coat to throw on this fall/winter and immediately feel more sophisticated and timeless. You can also layer this coat over a blazer, no problem. That is a unique thing to find.
In the photos above I’m wearing it open, but it can be worn belted… as a wrap coat. It hits at my calf and I’m 5’4” so it will be a little shorter on taller women. I love the length because it makes you look taller and leaner. If you can swing it, you should definitely invest in this coat! There are many versions of this coat for less, though. One of my favorites is this one by Ralph Lauren. It looks JUST LIKE the one by Max Mara.
I really love this look! As you may know, I’ve been building my capsule wardrobe around neutrals like brown and white and you can see many of those tones in this look. SIf you like wearing blacks or grays, you can easily duplicate this look by swapping out the brown coat for a charcoal gray or black option.
Under the coat, I’m wearing a funnel neck top by Tibi. It’s sleeveless so it’s great for layering under coats and jackets. I love that it’s white. It’s not cropped but I like the shorter hem. Unfortunately, it’s sold out so I linked a very similar one.
I’m wearing it with classic dark wash skinny jeans that are on sale right now! Then, I threw on some gorgeous brown boots by Tamara Mellon. They’re perforated so they breathe well. The perfect transition boots! They are seriously STUNNING! I featured them in this post. Finally, I grabbed my new favorite handbag. It’s black and brown so it’s very easy to style!
