Red Carpet | 2013 Met Ball

The theme for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala was ‘punk’ and wow, did the fashion pack put on a good show!

Here are my top five frocks from fashion’s most exciting red carpet event of the year. Mind you, none of these fashion darlings have taken the punk theme too literally, with the exception of Cara – so much love for that Delevingne – and SJP’s headpiece was pretty damn amazing!

Staples | Camel Coloured Coat

When the winter chill arrives, it’s time to wrap yourself in wool and don a warm coat. And there is no closet item that is more classic than a camel coloured coat.

The most common camel coloured coat, the Trench, was pioneered by Burberry in 1895. Today Burberry offers a range of traditional Trench coats, as well as more fashion-forward styles from the Prorsum line.

Some of the most stylish (and cosy) camel coloured coats keep the basic form of the Trench, but are far less structured – almost resembling a dressing gown.

Everything is more glamourous when it’s long. This rule also applies for camel coloured coats.

No matter what style you prefer, a camel coat is a solid fashion investment. Ensure you seek out classic tailoring and quality fabric to keep you stylish and warm winter, after winter, after winter.
