Amazon shoppers call this “the most perfect coat”
A camel coat is like the jeans and white t-shirt of outerwear. Classic and versatile, the two styles are pretty hard to mess up. Both can go with just about anything and, despite their popularity, each has a way of looking uniquely personal to the individual wearing it. Case in point, celebrities continue to style the timeless camel coat in new ways. Jennifer Lawrence taught us how to wear a tan, blanket-esque coat with wide-legged trousers and white sneakers earlier this month, and Meghan Markle has worn countless versions of the winter wardrobe staple with everything from athleisure to formalwear since becoming a royal.
Luckily, if you want to add the effortlessly sophisticated style of coat to your closet, you don’t necessarily have to spend upwards of $1,000 on Lawrence’s Totême wool and cashmere number or one of Markle’s many expertly tailored pieces of outerwear. In fact, you can get the look from Amazon for well under $100. The retailer’s own Amazon Essentials brand offers a button-front coat with structured lapels, pockets, and a slightly oversized fit for a menswear-inspired look. Starting at $39, the lined coat is made of wool, polyester, and acrylic for a warm layer that won’t break the bank.
A truly versatile piece of outerwear, there aren’t many ensembles that wouldn’t look good underneath this coat.
You could just as easily throw it on over tailored pants, heels, and a blouse as you could style it with a hoodie, leggings, and sneakers. And that’s just one of the reasons Amazon shoppers love this coat. They also appreciate the reasonable price and the confidence it delivers.
One reviewer wrote, “This is the most perfect coat,” and noted that it fit better than other, more expensive options. Another declared it “a true essential,” adding: “This is the coat every woman needs in her wardrobe.”
