Why You Should Own a Silk Camisole

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!

    So loving this color of Cami! It looks like the perfect traditional outfit from summer to fall. Light Pink is slowly becoming one of my favorite fall colors to wear.

    You are so right! Camisoles make it so easy to look put together even when you don’t feel put together. They add the perfect touch of classiness, but can still remain super versatile when styling. Such a cute and easy date night look!
