Stylelist 7: The Best Camel Coats (PHOTOS)

Seriously people, it's getting cold outside. I'd been ignoring the fact that temperatures have been subtly dropping over the past few weeks--who can blame me, it's been pretty balmy this fall until my mom (a style icon in her own right) showed up at my place in the chicest camel coat. I was very quickly reminded that it's winter and I need to start thinking about my outerwear situation. The camel coat--so named because sometimes it's actually made out of genuine camel hair--is usually a wool-cashmere blend and is always that rich shade of beige. It's neutral, it's timeless, and it's polished enough that no one would ever guess that underneath you're sporting sweatpants.
