Understanding The Camisole

Camisoles have been in existence since the latter years of 19th century. Women often used them as foundation garments, and the fabric varied from cotton, linen, and silk. Back then, women would wear them as protective pieces under their dresses and corsets. Today however, the camisole is no longer worn as foundation garment.

The cami can be worn in various ways which include; as an additional layer and standard piece of an outfit, underneath business suits,(this however depends on its design and fabric), and as an undergarment. If chosen well, a camisole can transform a bold corporate suit into a vibrant and modest outfit. Women living in warm climate regions are likely to own numerous camisoles. This cloth is also popular during summer.

Some camisoles especially the boxy cut ones can be worn alone comfortably. They are designed to slouch at the right areas.

Camisoles can be worn dressy or even casual depending on your anticipated final look.

Choose lace or satin camis for a dressy look, and soft linen camisoles for a more casual and relaxed look. Add a touch of elegance to the former look by wearing beautiful shoes and earrings. You can rock this look at a fun and exciting evening out. Throw in some sandals to the latter look and rock this on a summer afternoon out.

What To Avoid

There are certain practices which you should avoid when choosing what to wear with camisoles. These include;

Avoid wearing tight fitting jeans or pants with tight fitting camisoles. A tight camisole will look better when layered under a cardigan or jacket. You can also choose to tuck it in your A line skirt.

Avoid extremely skimpy camisoles especially if you have a big bust. Choose presentable tank tops or lace trims complete with thick straps. The cami should be straight along your neckline. This will give you a more conservative yet stylish look.

Avoid showing your camisole especially if you are layering more than one cami under your cardigan or shirt. This gives you a youthful and clumsy appearance.

Camisoles are made of delicate fabric just like sleepwear. Do not wash them in the washing machine. In order to maintain the shape, color, and fit of your camisole, dry cleaning is recommended. However, this is only recommended for some fabrics such as crepe and silk.

Always Remember

Loose fitting camisoles especially those made of silk can make a statement especially when worn for a fun afternoon or evening dates. You can tuck these in your skirts or pair them with pretty jeans.

Fitting camisoles such as those made of cotton fabric can look chic when worn under a sweatshirt or a cardigan. The cardigan gives you a slimming effect and extra coverage.

Choose beautiful accessories for your neckline such as a choker or fine necklaces.
