London Fashion - camel and checks street chic

Like if this guide is helpful

Camel is the unsung hero of every wardrobe, it’s softer than black but equally versatile.

Winter or summer, it’s the colour that works in every season. 

Camel sandals and bags are go-to accessories for summer, while in the winter a camel coat is kinder on the complexion and looks fresher than darker colours.

Honey-toned accessories can soften darks too.

Check shirts are a great off-duty addition to your wardrobe and they work brilliantly paired with jeans and camel accessories for a laid-back vibe.





eBay loves

Our street stylers have cleverly used camel to soften their look and blend perfectly with darker colours and checks.
We love how the camel scarf softens the black bomber jacket and floppy hat.

Camel accessories blend perfectly with the tartan, too.


The camel coat made a comeback on the 2014/15 catwalk, so buy now and be on-trend for later in the year. It will look just as chic with a summer party dress as it does with a winter polo neck.

Watch out for 

Go Grunge with a boyfriend-style check shirt or pick Gingham for this season’s freshest alternative.

Choose camel accessories to freshen up your look. Tan ankle boots are the spring update to black winter boots, while tan sandals have universal summer style. Work a retro aesthetic with a leather crossbody bag and a floppy hat. 

If you’re good at thinking ahead, bag a camel coat to see you into the next season.

Steal their style

Street style shows how caramel tones make a subtle and calming addition to darks and checks. Try pairing camel with denim, black, leather or cream for sophisticated and classic style.
Camel accessories are as wearable as black accessories, so stock up on shoes, bags and hats or make a statement with some on-trend checks.
