I’ve spent the last several years buying trendy pieces, and while those one of a kind items will always be a part of my wardrobe, classic pieces are the best transition into other seasons; the colder and the warmer ones.
Now you’re probably thinking, “what exactly do you consider a classic a piece?” and that’s a good question, so I’ll get right to it.
The simplest way to identify a classic piece is if the answers to each guideline below is a YES!
Does the color go with a variety of other items you own in your closet?
Will the piece look somewhat boring by itself?
Can this piece be styled in different ways? IE: can you wear it with sneakers, boots, and shoes?
Is this item suitable for work, on the weekends, and a night-out?
Can this piece be worn during more than one season? Winter into Spring? Or Fall into Winter, etc.?
So that was pretty easy right? I thought so too!
And that is what brings me to the sole reason for this post:
MY NEW CAMEL COAT.
I purchased this coat from the Gap during MLK weekend and got it for $79 (it was originally $225). Such a steal! Unfortunately it’s now sold out, but today you’re just in luck because I’ve linked 10 similar coats here:
The Classic Camel Coat by The Curated ($350)
The Belted Wool Blend Long Coat by & Other Stories ($249)
Classic Long Wool Coat by COS ($285)
Oversized Alpaca Blend Coat by & Other Stories ($174)

Quick tip: there’s a big chance these will go on sale during this President’s weekend, so I would check back then. In the meantime, just know these outerwear pieces scream classic all around. To think I actually lived without one. What the heck was I thinking??? and now that I’ve come to the realization this style is the ultimate staple, it’s an absolute MUST to add to your wardrobe.
