When it comes to shopping for a new coat, do you find yourself skipping over the neutrals? Maybe they aren’t your thing and you prefer something flashier? Stop for a moment and consider the camel coat. It’s a staple in just about every closet, and for good reason: It never goes out of style and it makes you look instantly put-together even if you’re just dashing to the bodega.

A camel coat works for everything: commuting, weekend brunch, or just running errands. Plus, the color is easy to match with almost anything in your closet, making it that much easier to feel good about your outfit in the mornings. Scroll down for our picks for camel coats for every budget.

The Recycled Coat

In addition to being made with recycled nylon and wool, this particular coat has a nice, roomy, cocoon silhouette that’s perfect for layering sweaters under.
Available in sizes 00–16.

The Lighter Coat

This camel coat is made with ponte, not wool. A good choice if you live in a warmer climate but still want the look of a winter coat.
Available in sizes 10–30.

The Cardigan-Coat

This relaxed, belted coat is long and slouchy, which makes it reminiscent of a comfy cardigan, but warmer and more stylish.
Available in sizes XS–M.

The Not-Quite-a-Trench Coat

The close cousin of the camel coat is the trench coat. If you can’t get enough of a trench shape (large lapels, double breasted, air of British aristocracy), but need something warmer, this Harris Wharf coat is a good bet.
Available in sizes 36 IT–44 IT.

The Coat You Can Get In Two Days

Need a wardrobe upgrade, stat? You won’t regret this classic Calvin Klein coat.
Available in sizes XS–XL.

The Coat That Comes With an Accessory

This Eloquii coat comes in with a built-in scarf, so you’ll never have to worry about clashing.
Available in sizes 14–28.

The Waist-Defining Coat

Most coats don’t show off your figure. This one, however, is tailored at the waist and has a belt tie. No matter how many sweaters you have on under, you’ll still look sleek.
Available in sizes 2–12.

The Best-Selling Coat

J.Crew is known for its classic coats, and this mid-length topcoat is a best seller. They come in pretty much any color of the rainbow, but you can’t go wrong with camel.
Available in sizes 00–24.

The Girly Coat

The rounded edges of this coat’s lapel almost look like scallops, making it look like something Blair Waldorf might wear.
Available in sizes 0–10.

The Classic Coat

A longer length means exponential gains in warmth. Trust us; your knees will thank you.
Available in sizes 14W–22W.

The Multi-Functional Coat

Wearing this coat belted or unbelted gives two totally different vibes. The voluminous silhouette looks cool and slouchy when unbelted. Belted, it looks more like an elegant robe.
Available in sizes 0–12.

The Slightly Embellished Coat

Say you want a coat with a belt, but not the kind of belt anyone else has. Well, this is the coat for you: slightly oversized, unfitted, and accented with a white bow.
Available in sizes S–L.

The Only Coat You’ll Ever Need

We’ve already said that you can wear a camel coat anywhere. But a perfectly simple coat like this will really go with anything, from post-Pilates workout gear to a black-tie dress.
Available in sizes 1X–3X.

The Scandi-Chic Coat

Scandinavians know how to look stylish without sacrificing practicality or warmth. Copenhagen-based Munthe’s coat is a street-style star in the making, with not one but two belt buckles.
Available in sizes FR 34–FR 40.

The Minimalist Coat

No bells, whistles, belt loops, or buttons to be found here.
Available in sizes XS–L.

The Button-Forward Coat

Take double-breasted coats to a whole new level with the Gauge81 coat. It’s super practical, but also just a tiny bit playful.
Available in sizes XS–L.

The Short Coat

If you live somewhere where it’s a bit warmer year round (or just want to show off your legs), a shorter camel coat is a classic, too.
Available in sizes XS–XL.

The Cuddly Coat

This is the kind of coat you just want to dive and snuggle into, which is great when it’s below freezing and you’re looking for any kind of comfort.
Available in sizes XS–XL.

The Investment

A luxurious, quality winter coat can get expensive. But when you calculate the cost per wear of a classic coat you’ll wear day after day, it makes some sense. This Marina Rinaldi coat, made entirely of camel wool, will never go out of style.
Available in sizes 16–24.
