I never knew the power of a silk camisole until last week. I was searching for an outfit to wear on a date night with B, sending him photo after photo of potential looks (because I’m that indecisive), when I noticed a particular blouse hanging on my wardrobe rack that I had completely forgotten about. You see, my wardrobe rack has become somewhat of a decoration in my cloffice, the items on it sometimes getting brushed over. Every piece on that rack is a beautiful blush tone, and I was totally feeling that color for the evening. I started sifting through the clothing and discovered this David Lerner NY camisole that I had only worn once earlier this year. I knew the second I pulled its satiny material over my shoulders that it was what I was going to don for the night – and Brandon agreed wholeheartedly when I sent him the outfit idea.
This blouse is the epitome of chic and sophisticated, and it’s also incredibly versatile. I styled mine very simply, with just a pair of high-waisted denim and some heels – my only bit of sparkle being in the rhinestone choker I chose to accessorize with. Let me give you a few reasons why you should own a silk camisole:
- You will feel like a princess. Truly, I felt so powerful and so elegant in this top. Just knowing I was wearing silk was enough to boost my confidence, but seeing it drape across my body so smoothly was reassurance that I looked as nice as I felt.
- They never go out of style. A silk top is as timeless as a set of Audrey Hepburn-esque pearls. You can own a top like this for the rest of your days and will feel utterly classic every time you decide to wear it.
- Silk camis are super versatile. Wear it alone as I did. Wear it with a leather jacket or cardigan over top. Wear it with a t-shirt layered beneath. Wear it casual or dress it up. There are a million ways to style these gorgeous pieces. You truly cannot go wrong.
I’ll admit, I found inspiration for this look from some of my favorite bloggers while browsing Instagram. You can see so many perfect examples of why silk camisoles are a must-have just by scrolling! I especially love big-city bloggers (like from NYC) who wear these pieces in a very street style-fashion! Let me know in the comments how you would wear this blouse, and have a great weekend!
