There are a lot of neutrals that work here – I could easily have used black and grey, olive and brown etc etc.
Camel is also very versatile with bright colors; I chose these mostly because they’re rather uncommon, and I like to give you ideas that you might not have otherwise considered!
Muted colors are also pretty easy with camel, because it has an inherently soft quality. And I’m still showing how very useful that white vest can be for most of us!
As with muted colors, pastels are also well-suited to wear with camel. I still haven’t found a pair of mint green shoes that I consider worth the bother, so I’m sticking with grounding our outfit with classic camel chukka boots.
When in double about an accent, always remember that you don’t have to find EVERY piece in your accent color, and you certainly shouldn’t wear too much of the accent at one time. How do you know what is TOO much? When you aren’t comfortable! Your mental comfort is paramount…
(I love how the mint vest is described as a “gilet” on the House of Fraser website; it sounds so much more elegant, doesn’t it?)
I’m still looking at taupe, maroon, slate/denim/petrol blue… and maybe purple as a neutral? Other suggestions?
