Wearing a Camisole to Work
Being an office employee or business woman, you always have to consider your dressing sense. Sometimes a small change in your wardrobe is all you need. A simple but well styled cami is a great outfit for you. We all want to be stylish with great dressing sense. Office dressing gets boring with time and we need to get a little creative on our style.
For a more refined look, here are some creative suggestions for your camisole.
Choose the Right Camisole
When you wear a cami, first look in the mirror and see whether you love what you see. Consider these factors for a great look:
- Color: Go for bold colored top for a powerful impact. A white, black, blue or beige colored top gives out a tremendous impact
- Straps: adjustable straps are best. Adjust them properly and ensure they don’t show much of your cleavage for modesty. They also help hide the bra straps
- Length: a long cami that can be tucked in or one offering greater coverage for outstanding look
- Material: choose a none see- through, thick material
- Lining: a double-lined cami is a worry free top
- Size: to give a perfect waistline, go for a fitting but not too much fitted top
What to Wear Underneath
Despite choosing the right camisole, you need to wear the correct bra. Here are some of the best bras that you can wear under the top:
Strapless bra: This is perhaps the best option of a bra when it comes to a thin strap outfit. You don’t have to worry about sticking out your bra straps.
Bandeau: just like a strapless bra, a tube top has no straps to show under hard to wear clothes. Shop for a breathable, stretchy, light and comfortable one. Ensure the bands on top and bottoms are not too tight for greater comfort.
Bralettes: They are more secure as they will not ride up. They are best known for a great look under any casual. It’s a great breast cover than the bra. They are very comfortable and great pair for your top.
Thin strapped bra: for a greater convenience, the thin straps should be of same color with your cami. That way they are hardly recognizable since they blend in.
Invisible bra: The straps are unnoticeable hence very convenient.
Toned: It blends in with your skin tone so it appears invisible.
What to Wear Over
Sometimes, you’ll not feel very comfortable going to work in a cami only. You’ll need to complement your outfit to look more formal. The weather may also not be suitable for a cami only. So here are some ideas that you’ll never go wrong in:
Blazer: choose your colors wisely; a white formal blazer can do well with a black cami. For example, a grey and black blazer worn with a white and beige top gives an awesome outcome.
They all bring out the professional look; whether relaxed soft crepe, the military tailored, a tie back, ruched sleeve or the ribbed blazer.
Chiffon top: an opaque chiffon blouse offers great coverage especially for the thin straps and your back and the outcome is a greater formal look.
Layer up: for concealing, you can use a tank of the same color.
Mesh cardigan: although it does not completely cover your cami, it will make it look more professional.
Sheer top: it offers more coverage and gives you a more refined outcome.
How to Not Wear a Camisole to Work
There are definitely some don’ts when it comes to wearing a cami. You have to figure out what can make you go wrong in a cami. There are some factors to consider when choosing a camisole:
Color: avoid brightly colored camisoles. You’re heading to work and not some party or outing. You have to be as formal as possible. A white, blue, black or beige is best for you.
Size: For better looks and comfort, it is best when you wear a slightly loose top. If you must wear a form-fitting cami, consider layering over or choosing a thicker material.
Thickness: avoid the see through because it can get you embarrassed. All attention will be on you making you uncomfortable or being the talk of the day, no one wants that. May get you fired too if you’re against the dressing codes of the organization.
Length: Your piece of wear should be long enough to tuck in your lower wear. You should feel relaxed when bending as you’re confident and sure your back is properly hidden.
Wearing a camisole to work can be sexy and cool. The challenge comes in the choice of outfits to pair with. If you still can’t find appropriate clothes to style your cami for a business look, try a blazer and a pencil skirt. Whatever your choice of clothes to complement your camisole, wear it with confidence and a smile.
