A Definitive List of the Best Camisoles Ever

Courtesy

In middle school, my ideal outfit consisted of low-rise jeans, Adidas shell toes, and not one, but two layered camis in contrasting colors. Nowadays I’m dedicated to straight-leg denim, I’ve swapped my Superstars for Air Maxes, and my camisoles are now made of silk. Not much has changed, and that’s because the camisole is a wardrobe staple. Wear it to work with a blazer, fall asleep in a cotton tank, or hit the town trimmed in lace. We narrowed it down to the 13 best camisoles that meet all your needs, here.

Butter Camisole

Commando

$48.00

The #1 Basic  

Commando, hands down, makes the best simple cami. It’s easy to layer under sheer tops without adding bulk, but FYI they only come in neutral colors. 

4-Pack Camisole

The Bulk Buy

For those who wear camisoles on the daily, do yourself a favor and buy them in bulk. 

The Racer Top

$148.00

Little Black Cami

When going out and dressing in doubt, the easiest outfit is a lace cami and black skinny jeans. My favorite comes from a brand that specializes in them, New York-based Cami NYC. 

Heart Embroidered Cami Top

$6.00

That’s So ’90s

Seventh grade me would have loved this top, and [age redacted] me feels the same exact way. 

Slim Perfect Tank Top

Secret Support

This cami has a bra on the inside, but by the looks of it you’d never guess it. It doesn’t look nearly as… sculptural as most built-in camis, making it way chicer.

Wear It To Work

Tank tops are not always work-appropriate, but the ones from Aritzia are. Their crepe styles are so good they can be worn alone or with a blazer on top. 

Lace camisole

Saint Laurent

$990.00

The Runway Edition

If your style looks strikingly similar to Paris Fashion Week, Saint Laurent has you covered. Kind of. For the fearless, wear it without a bra like they did on the runway. 

Chantilly Lace-Trimmed Camisole

$1,990.00

The Bridal Cami

For the non-traditional bride, this camisole is just as dramatic as a ball gown. Alternatively, wear it to your rehearsal dinner with flowing white trousers. 

Alicia Silk Zebra-Print Cami

$179.00

The Wild Card

As we mentioned, we love a lace camisole. Double down on the sultry vibe with an animal print and red leather pants. 

Airism Camisole

The Easy Breezy Cami 

Tight, stretchy camisoles can feel restrictive and sweaty. Uniqlo solved that issue with a super lightweight fabric that truly breathes so well even athletes wear them. 

Long Tank Top

The Longline 

If you prefer more coverage over your derriere, choose a longer camisole like this budget-buy from H&M. 

Grand Soleil Camisole

Kiki de Montparnasse
net-a-porter.com

$295.00

Boudoir Appeal  

We’re not 100% sure whether this is considered lingerie, but it’s so pretty we’d wear it out, too. 

Thinstincts Convertible Camisole

Spanx

$58.00

The Shapeshifter 

Spanx is a celebrity pick for red carpet appearances, so why not wear one on a Tuesday? Their surprisingly comfortable camisoles will flatter without restriction.
