By all indications, the camel coat will be the number one must-have for the fall season. I love those rare moments where the must-have items is actually a classic, rather than a flash in the pan fashion moment. The camel coat has been around, in one incarnation or another, for decades and this fall's camel coats are definitely going to add a new, chic chapter to the camel coat story.

Pictures of this fall's camel coats to come are slowly filtering into magazine editorials and pre-order sections of high-end stores. The choices are going to be amazing, but I'm already crushing on this find from the Saks Fifth Avenue First Looks section, where saks is previewing (and selling) some key pieces from the fall lines.

The Opening Ceremony Shawl Collar Coat is a fresh, modern take on the camel coat that will be perfect for those of use who live in more moderate climates. The military-inspired pockets and elbow-length sleeves make this version of the camel coat super relevant for this fall's ladylike and utilitarian trends... all in the same piece of clothing. Depending on what you paired it with, this coat could easily vibe either feminine or rugged, which is super versatile. Plus, since it retains that classic camel coat feel, it will be a closet favorite for many seasons to come.
