The Staple Silk Cami
The Silk Cami’s delicate drape shouldn’t just be reserved to the bedroom or evening affairs, this piece is a real asset when it comes to layering for daytime outfits with interest. With a bit of a creative eye this humble garment can be styled in a multitude of ways, both under or even over other wardrobe basics for classic looks with a contemporary twist. The sheen of the silk and delicate straps make this the perfect contribution of modern femininity to otherwise basic ensembles.
Ways we love to style the silk Cami include under a jacket for days on the go, rather than a cotton t-shirt a slight peek of the cowl neck drape adds a beautiful softness to structured jackets. We are all about this meeting of masculine and feminine for an outfit that spells simple modernity.
This combination can even be complimented with a denim piece to add another element to the mismatch of softness and structure. We love the rawness of well loved denim against the smooth silk and for an off duty look these are the perfect pair. There’s just something about the everlasting casual cool that denim exudes paired with the slight sheen of silk that has a certain nonchalance and chicness.
Lastly adapt the Cami for these last chilly months of winter by layering the Cami over a lightweight knit. This unexpected play on yet another textural combination works best on formfitting styles in baby wool, cashmere or cotton to allow the silk to still fall to your frame, avoiding bulk. A round or slight mock neck on the knit will not only keep the chill out but work nicely with the cowl drape to subtly accentuate the décolletage or even frame up a beautiful delicate necklace.
