If you needed convincing to warm up to Fall's camel trend, here's more proof that it's the new black. Practical chic and spot-on classic — Raquel Zimmermann glows in the designer's latest campaign. It's monochromatic fashion realism — a glimpse of the impeccably dressed about town, minus the bells and whistles. This is all about the gorgeous girl and the luxurious color palette. So, what do you think?
We're giving you three options on how to wear cool camel, but there are so many more. This third example melds sexy and preppy — a classic combo. It's so naughty schoolgirl. A silky button-down white shirt paired with an A-line camel skirt and cute bucket hat is demure, but mischievous. Chocolate brown accessories darken the crisp palette, as well as Bordeaux nails.
Camel-colored pieces are cropping up everywhere for Fall, but it's not always easy to refine the look. We've already shown you posh camel editorial ensembles, but if that's not your thing, seek out camel-hued accessories to make the most of the trend. Taking a cue from Marie Claire Italy, play up camel bits throughout the look — it's not likely to overpower, so show off the hue through bags, belts, and shoes. Then, jazz it up with exotic jewels.
We showed you how to wear Fall's green trend — now it's time for some camel love. It's a hot hue right now, as exemplified by the latest fashion spreads. Camel, like nude, can be tricky because there's a fine line between bold and blah. To get the former, pair your camel long-sleeve tee with a textured skirt, a la this Harper's Bazaar spread featuring model Jacquelyn Jablonski. If you loathe fur, tweed or feathers are good alternatives. Finish the look off with a snazzy wide belt and cool lace-up shoes. Posh camel at its finest.
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.

So you're willing to eat mushroom-flavored chocolate — but what about chocolate made from camel milk? Soon, chocolate addicts with adventurous palates will have the opportunity to try the world's first camel milk chocolate. Dubai confectioner Al Nassma, which claims to be the first chocolate made of the unconventional milk, announced yesterday that it plans to expand into other Arab markets, Japan, Europe, and the United States.
"We aim to be the Godiva of the Middle East," the company's general manager, Martin van Almsick, said. He rattled off the benefits of camel milk, including more vitamin C than cow milk, less fat, less lactose, and more insulin, which makes the chocolate a better option for lactose intolerant and diabetic consumers.
Would you try eating camel milk chocolate — or drinking the milk straight up? Is camel milk poised to become the next soy milk?
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.
