Camisoles are pieces
great for staying in or going out. They come in lace, satin, cotton
and just about any material you can find. Worn tastefully (that
means keeping your assets covered and not looking like you're ready
for bed when you're out on the town), these can be some of the
hottest tops around.
- First things
first. You can wear them with or without a bra. Often, camisoles
come with built in shelf bras, so you can opt to go with a
strapless bra underneath if you're larger chested, or with no
additional bra at all. If you're wearing a satin or silk number
in public, keep in mind this style looks best with a seamless
strapless bra underneath.
- Layers: The
beauty of a cami is that it is an essential layering piece. One
popular look is to wear two at once in complementary
colors--with blue jeans, yoga pants, shorts or a skirt. You can
also wear one under a long-sleeved boatneck t-shirt so the
straps--again in a complementary color--pop.
Wear a button-up
shirt unbuttoned over a cami for a classic, casual look. For work,
wear a camisole underneath a blazer or sweater for a pop of color,
and, if it's lace or satin, a bit of subtle sex appeal and
femininity. Wearing the cami that way makes it easy for you to go
from work to happy hour, too--just remove the blazer or sweater,
take down your hair, and touch up your make up.
- For working out:
these will go well with yoga pants, short shorts and can even be
layered over a racerback sports bra.
- With pajamas:
cotton camisoles are some of the most comfortable things to
sleep in. Sleep in them with just your panties, or slip on some
simple pajama bottoms. Make sure the straps aren't too tight
before you curl up in bed, though; otherwise you may wake up
with irritated skin.
