THREE WAYS TO WEAR A BASIC CAMISOLE

So this week I’m sticking with my theme of shining light on some of the more basic pieces most of us carry in our collection and am highlighting a plain camisole that I’ve had for years.  These are more than basic layering pieces  to stave off the cold or layer under a low neckline, they are great little stand-alone pieces.   The three outfits I’ve chosen to share are just a few of the many ways I’ve been wearing this cami through the spring and summer months.  It truly is a versatile piece and as such I had a hard time deciding which three outfits to share with you so you may well see this featured again!

Yep, I wore this in the 90’s and am wearing it again, over 20 years later! I love to throw a Marmite look into my #threewaystowear posts and this look is definitely one of those. Which camp are you in?  Do you love it, or hate it? I love it and one of the reasons is that I struggle to wear such a strappy cami over looser fitting jeans like these as the narrow straps enhance my pear shape and make me feel even more bottom heavy.  However, if I layer a tee underneath the cami, it prevents the thin straps from narrowing my shoulders. Brilliant!

WORN UNDER A SLEEVELESS DUSTER

We all know that cami’s are perfect for layering, but can be layered under so much more than chunky sweaters and v necks.  I’ve been wearing mine under a sleeveless duster a lot lately (I just change the footwear) it’s one of my current go-to outfits.  You’ll notice that I’ve tucked the cami into my high rise jeans – it’s such a great way to lengthen my legs a little, and who doesn’t want longer legs?!

This is by far my favourite look of the three this week, it’s a combination I hadn’t worn before (discovering new outfits is one of the main reasons I love pulling together these posts!) and is the result of me sorting out my closet for the coming season.  This skirt is an old favourite of mine which I normally wear with chunky knits and ankle boots, but fall is still a million miles away here in South Carolina so I thought I’d try pairing it with something lighter and loved the outcome!  How do you transition into a new season?  I know some of you struggle, and if this is you, tell me why that is in the comments below!
