Back around 2003 or so, you couldn’t get me out of camisoles: I owned a drawer-full of them and wore them on their own, or—more commonly—with a blazer or cardigan. Lately I’ve been thinking about them again because I’ve acquired a few sheer tops that require them, but also because I feel as though I can still, just maybe, get away with wearing them layered with blazers and sweaters the way I used to. I don’t especially like cotton camis—too clingy—and prefer something a bit silkier. It just drapes better, especially if you’re wearing it under a top. This one, from Rebecca Minkoff, isn’t left in too many sizes, but is so cute with the embroidered stars.
A well-priced orange option.
More stars, from Equipment.
Just a really sweet floral.
I like the scalloping at the neckline here.
Here’s a velvet peplum cami that looks really flattering.
I am a big fan of the color combination here.
I like the skinny, skinny straps on this (marked-down) option from Vince.
I don’t like too too much lace on a cami, and think this one gets it just about exactly right.
A striped cami like this would look great peeking out from under a blazer.
Somewhere in my apartment is this Organic by John Patrick cami, which I’d be wearing nonstop if I could find it, because it’s got a beautiful bias cut. And here is another very simply-cut black choice.
I like the clean lines on this pretty blue one from Anine Bing.
Like I mentioned, I’m not a big fan of cotton camis, but I’ll make an exception for this one because the embroidery is so pretty.
