How to Wear a Cami Top
The camisole is a truly a timeless piece of clothing and one of our year-round wardrobe staples. Not only has it become an officewear essential, but it can also be easily dressed up or down to satisfy nearly every occasion. Its sheer versatility makes it a crowd favourite that continues to survive the test of time. Learn about the many ways to wear and style a cami top now!
Before we dive into how to style it, let's take a step back and learn what is a "cami". A camisole, or cami as we love to call it, is a loose-fitting spaghetti-strap top. They are usually made from glossier fabrics such as satin, nylon, polyester or silk, while some camis (like ours) feature lace embroidery and other detailing.
Camis are typically seen as a good balance between smart and casual, making them super easy to dress up and down for whatever the event. They are great for those of us who love a comfy top that can be easily worn with skirts, pants, jeans, shorts and more!
It's no secret that a cami top should be in your office-wear rotation. Apart from being amazingly comfortable, they allude a professional atmosphere without being inappropriate. When it comes to wearing a cami in the office, we always prefer to keep ours tucked in.
One of our favourite officewear looks is a cami semi-loosely tucked into a pair of figure-hugging pants. Otherwise, a pencil skirt or Ponte skirt will also look fabulous with a cami.
For colours, we think everything goes! Black, white and light blue camis always look great with a pair of contrasting bottoms, while more vibrant colours such as reds, blues and pinks work better to complement colours in your skirt or pants.
To finish off your office look, layer your cami with a blazer or bolero to add depth and warmth to your ensemble.
- Unless you are going to a 90s themed birthday party, avoid layering over your cami with a t-shirt or long sleeve shirt
- Camis are designed to be worn loose, so a size up is better than a size down
- Accessorise your cami with either a statement necklace or earrings
- Choose a thin strap or even better, strapless bra to wear under your cami
