Is there anything more classic, more all American than camel and white on a woman? Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren come back to this timeless pairing time and time again, and I have yet to see a year where a fresh reinvention of the combination isn’t featured in their spring/summer campaigns. Now I must admit that camel colors are simply radiant on blondes, and despite the fact that Ali McGraw’s 1970s Love Story ensembles did create the sleekest preppy vision of all time with this very pairing, a head of fresh highlights or summer sun-kissed gold locks just seem to magically glow off of beige, cognac, and cinnamon shades. One rule of thumb when it comes to this all star combo? Always wear it with gold! Gold jewelry and accessories pop off of the crisp clean color pairing, and add warmth and depth to finish off this killer look. And do LOOK OUT, because a women wearing camel and white possesses true confidence… I mean bright white flares in Tribeca? That takes some serious city cool and cojones… fun, fearless, and fabulous;  fashion at its best.
