Winter Hat and a Camel Coat

Winter Outfit | Camel Coat and a Wool Hat | Fake Fabulous

Wearing this outfit gave me so much pleasure!
It's made up of many elements that I LOVE to wear.
Colour, texture and interest.
Warm and comfortable.
Traditional but still individual.
A perfect Winter look!

The hard-hitters in this look (for me) are my gent's hat and my camel coat.

Camel coats can look a little boring and stuffy (in my opinion).
Like something my Great-Nan might have worn to church!
BUT...
There is no denying that camel coats are very practical and a true classic.
A quality camel coat is timeless and will look great forever.

A simply cut camel coat also has the ability to "ground" a colourful or mixed outfit.
This camel beauty pulled my look together with ease.

The colourful element in this look is my gorgeous jumper from H&M.
I've had it for a few years and every time I wear it it makes me so happy.
It's a joyful piece of clothing!
Cosy and colourful.
What more could I want?

My second favourite piece of this look is this fabulous hat!
I found it in a bargain bucket and snapped it up immediately.

For one, it fits my gigantic head (It's 61cm).
Secondly, it's super-comfortable and cosy.
I love it.

I've paired these great pieces with a pair of khaki trousers and my much-loved Christopher Raeburn boots.

Such an easy outfit that ticked every box for me!

MAKE IT YOUR OWN:

The main players in this look are the wool coat and the structured hat.
They're easy to copy without the need to spend a penny.

You could use any colour of long wool coat and any style (or colour) of structured hat.
(Maybe borrow one from a friend or a man in your life?)

For example, a grey or navy coat would look great... as would black (if it suits you).

Underneath the coat wear a jumper that gives you joy... any colour, any pattern any style... anything goes!
As long as wearing it makes you smile.

Add some comfortable trousers (or jeans) and a pair of boots (ankle length or tall, whatever floats your boat) and you're done.

Wear with a smile and you can't go wrong!


I'd love to how you'd recreate this look!

  1. Pretty and obviously comfortable, the jumper makes it you. �� Gigantic head here too, all hats usually too small and bike helmet size XL. ��

  2. I love that you wear hats. I really like hats but feel self-conscious wearing them so I stick to beanies.

    1. I know what you mean Loree!
      Beanies are certainly more socially acceptable.
      Have you thought about trying a baker boy style hat?
      Part beanie part cap?
      It might be a good transition hat for you and a smarter option for those days you feel... well... non-beanie-ish but still chilly! :o)

  3. I love this outfit - I have done similar ones, but I wear my pink mohair coat (it's my version of a neutral, ha!). Love the hat - I always feel badass in a brimmed hat.
