A silk camisole is the ultimate first layer. It can be worn hidden under your clothes as a moisture-wicking and comfy undershirt. Or it can be shown off — both in the bedroom or in the boardroom. The possibilities are endless, especially when you choose a high-quality option like Uwila’s Soft Silk Lace Camisole. A closet workhorse, the 100% silk cami nails that delicate balance between office chic and ladies night out.

5 Ways to Wear a Silk Cami 

If you ask us, the best silk cami outfits take advantage of silk’s natural properties. They may also add items that play off of the femininity or softness of the material. With that in mind, here are 5 ways you can wear your favorite silk cami, from the ski slopes to a 3 star Michelin dinner. We’ve also included tips from the experts at Uwila Warrior.

1. As an Activewear Base Layer

Silk is highly absorbent and naturally temperature-regulating. That makes it an ideal material for an undershirt when you plan to work up a sweat. “The natural properties of silk means the camisole is breathable and moisture wicking, which is perfect as a base layer for athletic moments, like skiing,” explains Samantha Benassai, head of product at Uwila Warrior.  Since silk is durable, you can also wash it relentlessly without damaging the cami. 

2. Under a Sweater

Silk fabric is lightweight enough to be used as a layering piece, under a sweater without feeling bulky. Thanks to the temperature-regulating properties, it will also keep you from overheating or getting chilly during tricky in-between seasons climates. And if you do get too hot while inside an overheated space no worries. You have a cute tank underneath that sweater. 


3. As Lingerie

The fabric of Uwila Warrior’s Soft Silk Lace Camisole gives the camisole an elevated look as lingerie. “It matches back to our silk briefs — in both the fabric, lace, and colors — making it a perfect sleep set,” explains Sam. It’s also extremely sexy — since to us,  sexy means feeling good in your skin thanks to underthings that don’t pinch or pull.

4. Out to Dinner

    At Uwila, we designed our silk camis to be worn as more than underwear. “The cut and coverage and overall design are very much appropriate for wearing as a stand alone top,” Sam says. The fit of the Uwila silk cami is body skimming, not clinging. For a night out, contrast the delicate silk and lace with a knit cardigan, distressed jeans, or a more modest long skirt. 

    5. To a Business Event

    With the right grown-up pieces, you can dress up your cami for a professional setting. “It can transition to an elegant piece with pants and a crisp blazer for a business event,” points out Amberly Wright, Uwila Warrior’s Director of Growth.  Tucking it into or wearing it under a blouse will also give it a more polished look.
