How to Know What Color Cami to Wear with a White or Cream Top.

In the midst of all the holiday shopping guide frenzies, this might seem like an odd topic to be posting about, but it’s a question that comes up again and again.  The big question…What color cami (or camisole) to wear under a light color top? And for clients, it’s often one of those Oprah “AH HA” moments when they find out the answer, and then realize it totally makes sense as to why their outfits always felt a little off…

If you’re wearing a white or cream color top that needs a cami under for see-thru reasons, you’d think the cami should match the top, right? So you’d choose to wear a cream, white, or nude cami so it will blend.  BUT, and here’s the BUT… What happens when you match a white cami to a white top is that when it’s tucked into your bottoms,  you see a weird line where the waistband of the pant meets the tucked in cami. (Just like Hallie in the picture above.)  That disturbs the visually elongating line most of us are going for in the whole “dressing is an optical illusion thing”.

What’s the Answer??

There are 2 simple answers!!

We’re running this post early because the Banana Republic Sale ENDS NOVEMBER 6 at MIDNIGHT!!

Yes, I know this is delivering to your inbox Sunday instead of Tuesday. But for good reason. FIRST,  to remind you to make sure you go out and VOTE on Tuesday!! Because your vote counts!!! And apathy ain’t gonna make any changes happen, and we need change! SO PLEASE VOTE! And second,  to reward yourself for fulfilling your civic duty with a little online sale shopping at Banana Republic, sounds like a really good plan, right??? BTW, the sale ends Tuesday at Midnight – so get on it!

You might be thinking, Banana Republic? Really? That store feels like a great place to shop for work clothes but I need…    But  I think most of you, like most of our clients, want pieces in their wardrobes that can serve multiple purposes. Like a blouse, you can wear to the office, or a volunteer meeting but then also wear out on a Saturday night too. And that’s what we’ve found at Banana Republic and it’s all on crazy sale AND it comes in petite and tall sizes too. So, YOU ARE WELCOME!!
