Army green is a huge color right now, but so is camel. In fact, the two are totally complementary, and simultaneously feed into the chic desert vibe. We've been seeing more and more camel-colored pieces on the catwalks and in fashion editorials. Celine's Spring collection was an all-out camel-fest! Click on for 10 ways to sport the hue from now and through Fall.
After hunching forward blogging all day my body craves backbends. Luckily for me, Camel pose is a staple in a yoga practice. Do this pose regularly to increase flexibility in your lower back, shoulders, and hip flexors but to also strengthen your quads and abs.
|Sanskrit Name: Ustrasasana|
English Translation: Camel Pose
- Kneel at the front of your mat, keeping your knees under your hips. Look back and make sure your shins, ankles, and feet are parallel to each other.
- Put both hands on your hips, and gently arch back, just beginning to warm up your lower back and quads.
- When you're ready, reach your right hand back toward your right heel, and then your left toward your left heel. Your hands are there for balancing support, so don't lean all your weight into them. Try to shift weight forward into your knees, which will also increase the stretch you feel in your belly and chest.
- Lower your head behind you and stay here for five breaths.
- Come up slowly and sit on your heels. Lean forward, releasing your lower back into Child's Pose.

Chloë Sevigny in cool Chloe camel. With alliteration like that, it was so meant to be. The actress attended PaleyFest09 in the Chloe scalloped shorts and blazer that Kate Bosworth and Emma Roberts have both worn. It takes a gutsy gal to wear camel head to toe and we should all take note. Here's the lesson: camel is not a traditionally sultry hue, so, like Chloe, it's wise to pair it with a foxy print. Her tiger print blouse breaks up the look and shows off her sassy side. And those toned gams take camel to a whole new level of sexy.
Is there such a thing as a trendy classic? I say yes. The camel coat is back in full throttle. Designers have taken this hue and turned it into a variety of cozy styles. Take a look at Keira Knightley. The actress recently showed off her chic camel trench on the set of Last Night. I like how the longer length lends instant drama. This toasty color can be little tricky so choose a hue that complements your skin tone.
Backbends feel so invigorating, but doing a full backbend requires so much energy and upper-body strength that sometimes I need a less-intense stretch. This is a variation of the Yoga pose Camel, and it utilizes a wall to help you bring the stretch more into your chest, shoulders, and upper back. It feels so different than doing it on your own.
