Slip it on, worn loose and barely there, a Silk Camisole is perfect for Summer night or Summer strolls. A piece that was historically designed as an intimate is now an indispensable item for any wardrobe.
I look for silk camisoles with spaghetti straps, from antiques to the 1930s for simple styles with square necklines. The 1970s for a lace trimmed lingerie look, or I’ll jump to the 1990s to early 2000s for cowl necks, plunging V’s, bright colors, floral prints, and sheer inserts.
Brands to look for: Calvin Klein, Chanel, Chloé, Christian Dior, Giorgio Armani, Helmut Lang, Gucci by Tom Ford, Margiela, Prada, Ralph Lauren, Victoria’s Secret.
key decades: Antique-1930s, 1970s, 1990s- early 2000s.
