Casual Camel

Casual workflow in camel and leather.

Camel has been a huge trend lately, and I've finally gave in and embraced it. My original reason for staying away was that it's essentially like animal print, and someone needs to advocate for the camel's rights.  However,  after seeing the numerous looks of other bloggers in camel, I realized it's actually a pretty versatile color... and the camel can find a new advocate.  It's a more professional color than your average tan and can make your look go from casual to camel casual, which is like a more sophisticated version of the same look.  Expect more camel to appear in my wardrobe from this point on.

The look I'm going for here is grungy business casual for the new, hip workplaces.  People still say hip, right?   I styled a slightly too big button-up shirt with liquid leggings for those workplaces who have edgier business casual rules.  It's almost like a vertical mullet; professional at the top, and party at the bottom.  Either way the camel works as well with the black.  I topped the look off with a grey hat and a darker camel wristlet for the after-work effect.  It's a light look for the spring, but still keeps you looking cooler than rest of your coworkers.  If you're an intern, I'd swap out the leather leggings for plain ones if you don't want questioning looks from your boss. 

The whole boyfriend look let's you get away with your over-sized button ups, and Asos has a great collection to help you stock up.  They're perfect for petite people who are looking for not too fitted, but light button-ups. Plus they are reasonably priced for those living on a college budget.
