Ankura Camel Coat
December 21, 2017
You know what feels better than shopping ethically and making a positive impact on the fashion industry? Being asked to give input on an ethical brand’s upcoming collection! Ya! That happened. Ankura, a Peruvian-based ethical clothing company, (who I previously collaborated with here) asked me to give feedback on their upcoming collection and are asking me to get input from YOU too! Follow this link to complete their super short survey and have a chance to win one of their new pieces!
I’m previewing a new piece they’ll be releasing in 2018 throughout this post. This Ankura camel coat is called their Adeline Coat.
I pretty much fell in love with this piece from their new collection immediately. It’s feminine, thick, warm, has beautiful complimentary colours, and is an easy piece to work with most items in my wardrobe.

It’s been a relatively warm winter here in Southern California, so, I decided to pair this camel coat with a lighter-toned outfit. These white jeans and top go perfectly with it. The relatively thick coat feels like that little layer of warmth needed for a brisk day while still keeping the whole outfit looking fresh.
If it had been colder out, I’d probably style this coat with a thick cream wool-knit jumper, long, skinny jeans, and some knee-high boots. If the weather gets cold enough, maybe I’ll do just that!
Christmas came early for me! Eddie gave me these Everlane Chelsea Boots as an early Christmas present because he knew just how perfectly they would go with this coat. I’m spoiled I tell ya! These boots have been on my wish list for almost a year now, so I’m beyond thrilled to finally have them in my possession. Not only is the colour absolutely perfect, but they fit like a glove and are just dead comfy. I could walk all day in these boots and be as happy as a clam.
Back to the coat: It’s warm, comfortable, and luxuriously heavy. You can feel that it’s made with top quality materials – it’s 100% alpaca fiber (which is better than cashmere btw!).
I’ve always wanted a camel coat of some kind (been eyeing this one out for a while now too) so I was super keen to add this to my wardrobe. The earthy tones are a part of your typical ethical clothing colour scheme. However, the design is far from the norm. I love the frill on the sleeve and the length of the coat is perfectly flattering.
