The camel hair coat -- a coat made with actual or synthetic camel hair fibers -- is a gorgeous choice for cooler months that is fashionable, easy to wear and versatile. Of course, if you’re wearing a coat, you often need a scarf to pair it with for functional purposes, so why not make it fashionable as well? Your coat is so basic that you have lots of scarf options, not to mention various ways to wear these scarves with your coat.
Fashion experts at the website Who What Wear love the rectangle scarf with a basic coat and advise that you choose one made of thinner fabric so it’s not too bulky when you tie it around your neck. Wear it knotted in the front, wrapped around your neck or with one side thrown over your back. The rectangle scarf comes in tons of prints, patterns and colors, and you basically can pick your favorite because camel, as the queen of neutrals, goes with just about anything.
The silk scarf has accessorized women for decades, and it will look gorgeous in all its styles over your camel hair coat. You can wrap it around your neck like a traditional scarf, tie it in a knot a la 1980s working women or, according to Who What Wear, make a bowtie. For this look, Who What Wear advises that you pick a silk scarf long enough to tie a bow and let the ends hang down over your chest. Though a bit more for fashion than function, you’ll complete your cool-weather look in a totally chic way with silk.
Fabulous for easy scarf wearing, the infinity scarf -- a circle scarf that has a hole in the center to slip over your head -- is a wonderful match to your camel hair coat. These come in light and heavy versions, so choose according to the season. You can either wear this like a big necklace or double it up for warmth and a varied look.
Long Wool Scarf
In the dead of winter you’ll want some serious insulation from the cold, so choose a super long, wool knit scarf. Wrap it around your neck over your camel hair coat as many times as you desire. This look is really fashionable -- and works in pretty much any color with your neutral coat -- and functions as a warm and fuzzy neck blanket.
