Camel is an often overlooked neutral, which is a shame because it's one of the most versatile shades out there. It's light (so you don't feel funereal), but not so light that it's impractical for stain magnets (like yours truly :)), making it a super-versatile shade for a blazer. The classic pairing is to match camel with black. The modern combo is to mix it with a cool neutral like gray. Personally, I'm a fan of mixing it with blue denim. It's fresh and a bit more relaxed than sophisticated black and gray tones. It also lends itself both to an all-neutral look or styling with a shot of color. Start by layering a neutral crop top underneath - tee or sweater, depending on weather. Leave the blazer open (a la Brie!) for a casual event or night wear. Button it for day or professional looks, or choose a standard-length top. Don't shy away from prettily-edged pieces that are slightly longer than the blazer - a sheer, lacy or ruffled edge peeking out looks gorgeous! Keep the casual vibe by finishing the look with chunky-heeled ankle booties in a similar light shade. This keeps your whole ensemble essentially neutral. For accessories, think tassel pendant or tiny fleck of metallic shine (see Brie's look for a demo of that). If you feel more colorful, pop this look with a bright scarf in any shade you can imagine: reds, pinks, bright blues, oranges, yellow, mint, lavender, mauve. An embroidered or tassel-edged one shows off your boho side, while monochrome or printed silk (or cashmere) elevates the look. Alternatively, try a pocket square ;). Finish with colored shoes in a complementary color. Hope this inspires you to try the camel and denim color story sometime :) Happy styling!
