The Classic Coat Every Woman Should Own
Trends come and go. (Remember crushed-velvet dusters? Yikes.) But the camel coat is everlasting—and for good reason. This structured topper is essentially the cool-weather version of your timeless trench, and it transitions easily from sneakers and distressed denim to printed frocks and stacked-heel boots. It’s also a flattering color on nearly any skin tone. Oh, and did we mention it’s actually warm? We partnered with Lillian Babaian and Mara Ferreira on the tails of Ralph Lauren’s 50th Anniversary to showcase the brand’s take on this classic.
It Becomes Part of Your Outfit (Instead of Hiding It)
Your coat is your look when the weather cools down, so it helps to find one that teams well with your current wardrobe. “Ralph Lauren is the epitome of classic American style. I love how their clothes make me feel polished while being comfortable enough for everyday wear,” says Ferreira. Follow her lead and pair the Polo Ralph Lauren Chesterfield coat with a contrasting black sweater to make it really stand out.

Finding the Right Fit Is Key
When you’re sporting a tailored coat like this camel wool-blend layer, construction is everything. Most important: a slightly slim fit, notched lapels and a full lining. “Not only are the pieces tailored to fit perfectly but the quality and fabrications are exceptional,” says Babaian of the Polo Ralph Lauren Chesterfield coat she’s wearing.
