Winter is already here, making me wonder what am I supposed to do with all my summer camisoles, just put them away until snow melts and spend a whole lot of cash on new winter intimates in the mean time? Not a compelling plan, so I’ve been thinking about it and here’s how I’m gonna make the most out of my camisoles this winter.
1. Camisoles and pencil skirts
Thank god for camisoles and pencil skirts. And Fridays, and Paris, and live concerts. Camisoles are a great invention, and so are pencil skirts. Slim-fitting, straight, narrow cut. It’s one of the best contrasts I can think of. Long and slim skirt, just like a pencil, mixed with a flowing, seamless cami top. May I just say how lucky I am to be a woman? The only guideline for this combination to be an utmost success is to choose a cami that has built-in bras cups for support. You want to keep everything in place if you’re gonna dazzle everyone with your carefree fashion sense.
2. Camisoles and tight pants
When it comes to tight pants and cami tops, you simply cannot go wrong. What is essential though is the reason you’re getting all dressed up for. If it’s a more special event, a lacy or silky cami will work wonders for your outfit. If it’s a weekend day, that means leisure activities, which may sound like a job for cotton. But at the end of the day, your choice depends on whatever makes you feel good and comfortable, be it V-shaped or rounded necklines, spaghetti or wider straps, lace, silk, satin or cotton.
3. Camisoles and half sweaters
There’s a reason why some sweaters are only half their usual length, and that reason is to keep you warm and flirty at the same time. I still have issues understanding why some people consider wearing camisoles as outerwear somewhat indecent. Unexpected, maybe. Half sweaters or light jackets like those that don’t go below the waist, let me just tell you they work great with camisoles. It’s recommendable though to choose wider straps to overlay the bra straps which you will be needing for full support. With a cool look like that, you want everything to stay in place.
4. Camisoles for extra coverage
Sometimes we may need extra support, extra coverage and since it’s winter outside, extra warmth. Layering two camisoles will do the trick and depending on the styles and hues you choose, this can be a stylish yet comfortable attire. If combining a couple of camis sounds appealing, keep in mind the golden rule: make sure necklines align and so do the straps.
5. Camisoles to warm up winter nights
It’s time to take it from outside to inside. When the weather outside is frightful, there’s a fire that’s supposed to be delightful, but where there’s no fire to warm you up, you may as well make your own. Let it snow outside, while you pamper yourself with a smooth camisole that feels like you’re wearing nothing at all. “Why is that different from wearing camisoles during summer?” you may ask. It’s simple: summers keep you warm by default, it’s winters that are the real challenge.
