Camisoles might seem like a piece that is risqué to wear when you’re strutting into the boardroom. But what if we tell you that you can, in fact, show up to work, looking chicer than ever in a cami? Well, we know it’ll be hard to agree at first. Which is exactly why we’ve got solid proof, from both street style stars and celebrities, who have churned out similar looks using this flimsy piece. These looks, in hindsight, are ones that can be incorporated into your work wardrobe. The key here is to layer! Scroll on as we tell you how to work this sleek garment as office wear.
Sport it with a blazer and pencil skirt
The one piece that never goes wrong at work is a stylish pencil skirt. Skip your blouson for a silk camisole, and layer this with a blazer. Opt for traditional work wear colours rather than going for solid loud hues. The idea is to go for a camisole in a shade that is on the subtle side. A pair of peep-toes or even lace-up stilettos go well with this look. Take to your work bag as arm candy and don’t forget those glares in a retro style for an easy chic look.
Team the cami with your pantsuit
Trade the shirt that you wear with your suit for a camisole with lace trimmings. Button up the suit so that the piece only makes a cameo in your ensemble. The idea is to add a feminine touch to an otherwise sharp work look thanks to the pantsuit. You can go for a monochrome look by adding a white cami to a black pantsuit. Or just go for an all-black ensemble for a rather sleek look. Either opt for a pair of block heels to give you the illusion of height, or you can even wear brogues for an uber-chic look.
Wear it under a semi-sheer blouse:
Wear a camisole of the same colour under a semi sheer blouse with a pussy bow and pair it a pencil skirt, block heels and statement bag.Avoid going for a blouse in darker colours as it may look much more sheer under the lights.You can also go for monochrome and pair the blouse with a trouser of same colour and wear a matching camisole underneath.
