The Prettiest Layering Combination Everyone's Wearing

Whether you’re blessed with an innate sense of how to layer, or achieving a dynamic look requires a quick scan on Pinterest or your favourite fashion website (who, us?), there’s something deeply rewarding about coming up with an unexpected, interesting outfit. Case in point: today’s duo. Ladies near and far have been gallivanting around with slinky camisoles and slip dresses worn on top of knits, tees, and the ilk. Why do we love it? Not only does it extend the life of your warm-weather spaghetti straps, it also opens up a world of combinations that you may never have thought were possible within your wardrobe, including office outfits. Interested in trying it out? Scroll through our inspiration gallery for ideas, and if you need a new camisole shop our picks!

If you’re up for the challenge, try a bow blouse underneath a printed cami, belt the two, and then finish the outfit off with a pair of frayed-hem jeans and embellished pumps.
