As we move towards the end of the summer, it is time to start preparing for the colder weather and putting a little thought into the subject of winter coats. This winter, there will be two contrasting trends for coats statement winter coats and versatile classic coats in colours which include navy and camel. The camel coat is being described as the must have coat for everyone in the fashion know this season due to its versatile colour. But a camel coat is not for everyone.
