Sometimes it’s the easy, simple things we are drawn to wearing over and over and I think these new Cami Tops are the perfect example of such comfort and versatility.
The careful tailoring like the straps that cover the bra, the flattering and comfortable height of the neckline and underarm make for the perfect balance of fit and flow.
They are lovely worn loose over jeans or shorts for a casual look, but the luxurious fabric lends itself to dressing up too. There's enough length to tuck it in and it's also great for layering over a little tee or under a cardigan in cool weather.
This colour can look sophisticated with black and navy, soft with with pink, sage and grey or extra fun with a pop of yellow or turquoise if contrast is your thing!
Limited edition, handmade in Sydney's inner west by a small business.
Made from Tencel which comes from wood pulp and is considered one of the most environmentally friendly fabrics. The breathability, smooth, slinky touch and elegant drape is similar to silk but it is sturdier and easier to care for. It feels absolutely beautiful on the body.
Cold handwash is best for this fabric in terms of look, feel and longevity. However if you occasionally wash inside a wash-bag on delicates cycle in the machine using a mild phosphate free detergent it will be fine! Low spin only and do not leave crushed inside the machine Dry on a coathanger. Warm iron with lots of steam but also looks lovey un-ironed.
I made this style several years ago and found them to be a great fit and true to size. I have since shortened them slightly to avoid any tugging across the hips.
