Do you love camisoles as much as I do? I have found this one item to be an indespensible piece in my wardrobe, and a item I recommend for just about every single client I've worked with. And for good reason. Camisoles come in all shapes and sizes, making some variation of this sleek, body-hugging layer perfect under just about anything. More than just lingerie, camisoles can add a shot of color, a dash of style and a touch of modesty to your outfit. Here are some of my favorite ways to wear them:
1/ Layer a long, thin, body-hugging cami beneath a knit top or tee-shirt to give you a sleek look and also add interest with a contrasting color. Try burgundy under magenta, or navy under royal. *bonus feature: the long cami also camouflages the span of skin that's visible when you bend over to tie your child's shoe or pick something up.
2/ Have a top or dress with a plunging neckline? Layer a pretty lace trimmed cami underneath and it's appearance will be a welcome addition to your look. Go for a neutral shade such as white, beige or ivory to down-play the look, or try a pop of color such as turquoise, rose or jade to bring some brightness to your face.
3/ Wearing a cami helps to make any shirt fit for breastfeeding in public. Simply lift your shirt from the bottom up, pull the cami from the top down, and your tummy will be covered while you nurse your baby!
4/ If you're hot natured, opt for a camisole beneath your jacket or sweater, in lieu of a short or long sleeved top, to help you keep your cool.
5/ Adding a cami with some pretty embroidery, lace or other adornment at the neckline will help you put your own personal stamp on your outfit.
6/ If you're wearing a sheer top, layer a camisole underneath to keep you covered. Go for a similar, rather than contrasting, color to keep it from being distracting.
7/ A camisole is generally not a top to be worn by iteself unless you are in your teens. Wear with something to enhance your look and you'll look wonderful!
