How to Wear a Camisole

By LeafTV Contributor

Whether you wear it to bed, or you use it add style to your wrap dresses and tailored jackets, a lacy silk or rayon camisole is a fashion essential for the modern woman's wardrobe. To make sure that this flirty top fits well, opt for newer styles that feature a high percentage of spandex or Lycra and have bra-like adjustable straps. A camisole is a versatile wardrobe option, but you should resist wearing this garment as a top in workplace and business situations.

Step 1

Wear the right bra. A comfortable bra makes you look and feel confident in your camisole. Get measured for a strapless bra at a lingerie shop, and try several on until you find one that fits the best and has good support.

Step 2

Go casual in a camisole for weekends. Wear a camisole with a built-in bra for the most comfort. Choose one in a casual fabric, such as a ribbed knit. Pair with jeans and sandals or layer under a hoodie or cardigan for cooler weather.

Step 3

Add a touch of femininity to your office wardrobe by wearing a camisole underneath a suit or tailored jacket. To look professional and polished, avoid camisoles featuring leopard print, lace or any other types of fabrics or patterns that may resemble lingerie.

Step 4

Look hot while clubbing in a camisole. If you are going out straight after work, pair a sexy one with a pencil skirt or slacks. Because clubs are the appropriate places for lace and other sexy frills, turn your day wear into evening wear by removing your jacket.
