Aren’t The best things in life often underrated?
There are a few items; tees, trainers, turtle necks – all things I reach for often and most of the time, don’t give a lot of thought. They’re not necessarily forgotten but more, unappreciated.
Camisoles, especially the shapewear style, are one of them; a basic I wear that allows me to make the most out of my wardrobe. Some shirts can be just a little too sheer, show a little too much and a cami style vest works wonderfully underneath without creating a larger silhouette.
They’re inclusive, working well with every body shape, smoothing and slimming to create a blank canvas for dressing our tops. Updating yearly will allow camis to be their best self, providing a streamlined look, wear after wear.
The Cami Rules
Go for a nude or a similar colour to the top. Opposing colours will make a cami’s place irrelevant.
Go true to size – avoid sizing up for unwanted excess fabric, and avoid sizing down to allow the cami to have a smooth finish.
Avoid straps with extenders, these will only be uncomfortable and be noticeable under layers.
Refresh every one to two years to keep them doing their best; stretchy fabrics lose their puff over time and become less streamlined.
Choosing the right shapewear is a necessity and a camisole is no exception.
Their longevity and versatility flatter and allow us all to wear our blouses with confidence.
No matter our style journeys, these camisoles are gamechangers and deserve our attention.
