In honor of basics week, we’re celebrating three classic silhouettes styled three different ways. Last week we went over how to style a white t shirt. This week, we’re covering cami dress outfit ideas.
Why We Love Cami Dresses
It’s Friday morning and you have a crazy schedule for the day. On your plate is work in the morning, an early dinner with your family in the afternoon, and then a night out on the town with friends. You stare in your closet as you rub the sleep out of your eyes. If only there was a piece of clothing that could easily get you through the whole day without having to go home and change. Well, look no further – the cami dress is here to save the day!
Cami dresses and slips are the ultimate chameleons of the fashion world. Expanding upon the classic cami tank top, they exude a level of effortless cool that can be dressed up or down easily. And bonus – they’re usually made out of t shirt material, making them super comfortable as well. Here are our three cami dress outfit ideas:
Look 1: How to Style a Cami Dress for a Girl’s Night Out or #GNO
Cami dress outfit ideas for a night out may be the simplest of the bunch. Simply dress one up with a pair of eye catching heels – we opted for gold bandage stilettos. Add a purse and jewels with matching tones to pull it all together. We used a black glittery clutch with a lock accent and chain link strap, along with a gold choker and hoop earrings to glam up this outfit as much as possible. The metallic shoes, necklace, and purse bring the diva attitude necessary for a night out while pulling together the outfit.
Look 2: What to Wear With A Cami Dress for Work
Want to look cute and appropriate? Bring that cami dress out, but pair it with some essential workpieces, such as a black blazer, tastefully patterned heels, and some cute frames to add sophistication to your outfit. We chose a blazer with lace-up details, and heels with a delicate floral pattern to add some flair. Our thick framed glasses provide the edge needed to bring this outfit to the next level.
Look 3: Cami Dress Outfit Ideas for Lounging
And now finally, our favorite way to wear a cami dress – for lounging and casual wear. Give off a laid back, but polished vibe, by pairing your dress with an oversized denim jacket. Put on one of our favorite statement pieces of the season, a denim choker, to coordinate with your jacket and pull it all together. Then, lace up some comfy tan tennis shoes to provide a cute finish to this stylish outfit.
