Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you’ve got to do is call… on a beautiful camisole. Whether worn as an actual top or just as an extra silky layer whenever there’s a chill in the air, this wardrobe hero makes a great fashion friend, whatever the British weather decides it’s doing that day. 

A loose-fitting lace camisole has been a celeb favourite for a while now, with Rihanna rarely leaving the house without something satiny tucked into her ripped jeans and Victoria Beckham letting hers peek out from beneath a trench coat. The smooth cami top was also a staple on the catwalks this year, with Burberry pairing it with pleated midis and Versace layering theirs over a shirt dress. 

Here at Pour Moi, we’re going crazy for camis, too. After all, why should we spend all day wrapped up in cotton, when we can have sensuous silk next to our skin? With that in mind, we’ve listed five of our favourite ways to wear a camisole top. Read on to find out why you need one (OK, at least five) in your wardrobe right now.

Wear a cami… with more masculine pieces

From leather biker jackets to boyfriend jeans, camis are a clever way to add a feminine touch to a more masculine outfit. And nowhere is this girly-fying effect more important than when it comes to the daily dilemma of what to wear to work. The sharp tailoring of office wear will be instantly softened by a black cami top like the India Satin and Lace Cami from the India Pyjama Set. Tuck it into a pencil skirt, leave it loose under a blazer or just let it peek over a crisp shirt for a look that’s both office-friendly and an easy way to transition from desk to dinner.

Wear a cami… to solve a wardrobe crisis

Who’d have thought such a tiny slip could do such heavy lifting when it comes to pulling an outfit together? Got a top that you love that’s a little too short? Putting a cami underneath can effortlessly fill that awkward gap. Want to wear a trouser suit to a summer wedding? Wearing a cool silk camisole top means, you won’t be longing to take the jacket off before the bride’s made it down the aisle. Our Sofa Love Ruche Front Jersey Cami is made from a soft and breathable fabric to keep you cool, while the adjustable straps mean you can decide how much cleavage you dare to reveal.
