Now, first of all I have to admit that I actually made this list yongos ago but completely forgot to publish it! So if the whole camel debate seems a little out of date then I apologise. I'm not really sure where I stand in terms of camel love, I wouldn't say it's a trend that I hate, but equally it's not a trend that will have me begging other girls to hand over the last camel item in the shop (Yes I actually did beg someone to let me have the last pair of sold out Kurt Geiger sale boots that I had just been to 5 shops in search of and had been desperate for for months, whereas she had merely picked them up quite nonchalantly, as if they were any old boots, 20 seconds before me. She bought them anyway. Bitch).
It just seems to be something I can't escape from, every magazine I open, every blog I read and every shop I enter is channelling AW 2010's biggest colour and it looks like I'm about to join them. At first, I didn't think this would be a trend that I could get on board with, but typically I seem to have changed my mind already. While trawling through online shops, my love for this trend seemed to grow with every click of the mouse. From chunky knits, to fitted blazers, anything and everything can be found in camel. Have any of the items in my list turned you into a camel convert too? (if you weren't loving the trend already that is) and will you be channelling head to toe camel this autumn? (apparently that's the chic way to wear it) I'm not sure I'm that brave, but here's one thing I never thought I'd say; I'm looking forward to having a wardrobe full of camel!
