You’re probably thinking, duh, what do you mean how do you style a cami? They’re for layering, hello. And yes, that’s totally true, but this versatile piece has so much more to give. Instead of burying it under a sweater or your favorite sheer top, why not put it front and center this spring? It works like a lightened-up version of a classic tee and has just as many styling options. From on-the-job to off-duty, we’ve pulled together three on-point looks using this effortless topper.
A cami might not seem like it would be totally appropriate to wear to the office on its own, but you don’t have to hide it under layer upon layer to bring it up to dress code either. Simply slip a sleeveless jacket on top for an instant nine-to-five polish. The open front shows off the perforated piece and keeps arms out in the open so you can breathe easy when the mercury starts to rise. Tailored trousers add another element of finesse to this 21st-century power suit, with a bold print keeping the look feeling fresh and fun.

Crop tops look spot on when paired up with a sassy pencil skirt, but a cami can look just as fly. The faux leather fabric feels sleek and put together, balancing out the feminine edge of this feisty floral bottom. Give it a quick tuck and then pair it up with luxe gold add-ons for some serious night-out style.
