The fashion industry has bombarded us with the idea that “camel” is big for fall. Yeah, we know. So is military style, over-the-knee boots, blah, blah, blah.
One trend that hasn’t made quite the stir is wearing camel and gray together. Sounds weird, huh? It’s actually very chic and modern.
I was accidentally “ahead” of the trend last winter. I had a cashmere scarf with a large cream, gray, and camel check design. I wore a gray jacket with it and camel colored boots. I received tons of compliments on my outfit. There was something about that combination of colors that I loved last year, and I especially love what designers are doing with it this season.

I love how they’ve used darker cognac boots and accessories to ground the camel and gray combo.
Michael Kors featured this combo a lot in his Spring 2011 show.
Umm, not digging the socks and sandals combo.

What do you think of wearing camel and gray together?
Chic or not really liking it?
