Prudes: overt your eyes, the slip trend is here to stay! And if there's one item you to have in your closet right now, it's the silk cami.
The less-raunchy sister of the slip dress, the silk cami (or cami slip) is surprisingly versatile. From my casual denim look, to something a bit more fancy, here's five ways to style a silk cami...
1. The Everyday Glam
Skirt: Cotton On
Bag: The Madame Bag*
Mules: Famous Footwear
Sunglasses: TIJN Eyewear*
With the slip dress still hanging firmly at the front of my ridiculously-crammed wardrobe, I found myself craving something a bit more versatile and casual.
Cue the silk cami!
Still nailing the effortless, underwear-as-outwear mumbo jumbo to an absolute tee, the silk cami is made to be thrown on and dressed down.
As I wanted to show off my
fake tan, I paired my silver slip cami with a light was denim skirt and topped it off with some nude mule sandals.
Completely ignoring the overused phrase 'less is more', I then layered up the jewellery and made a huuuge statement with this fabulous fringe bag from The Madame Bag*. With oodles of statement tassels and a circular rose gold handle, don't you just wanna touch it? **wink wink**
2. The Silk Cami: Cold-Weather Approved

Chances are that some of you reading this right now aren't dwelling in the Southern Hemisphere. Although Australia may be as sweaty as a sumo wrestlers behind (yep- I went there), you poor ladies and gents in the Northern Hemisphere may as well be walking through the Artic itself screaming 'Winter is Coming'.
Nerdy references aside, the last thing you want to wear is a silk cami right? Wrong. Simply layer a chunky cardigan over the top and Bob's your uncle! Pair with jeans for a more casual look and glam it up with a slither of red lipstick.
Those of you in the really cold parts of the world may even want to layer a turtleneck jumper underneath your silk cami. This one's all about embracing and clashing textures!
3. Funk It Up!

The harsh reality is that I will never be as cool as this chick above. But I, and you, can certainly try! The slight grid-like, almost tweed pattern of the skirt gives it inevitable 90s vibes. The silver silk cami itself has all those space-like qualities of trends circa 2000. Long story short, it gives me nostalgia.
Pair your silk cami with a split skirt and geometric silk earrings for something edgy and on-trend. A longer skirt may even make this outfit totally office appropriate!
4. Quirky Meets Classy

I don't know who this fashionista is, but she may actually just be the Einstein of styling. Whoever decides to style a silk cami with tailored pants is really thinking outside of the box!
Not to mention the silky bomber, which gives it an extra edge of sports luxe. Wear your slip cami with tailored pants and change up your jacket for a look that will take you straight from
office to bar (eughh such a cliche)
5. The Perfect Equation

Silk cami + tee + denim/leather skirt + Western belt = hotter than Margot Robbie
Ha! And you thought that bloggers couldn't do maths!
I honestly can't count on my fingers the amount of times I've seen this golden combination on Instagram. It seems to be the go to way to style a silk cami and that's because it looks amazing!
Mix it up a little by wearing a printed tee underneath. Or switch out the denim or leather skirt for something a bit more quirky if you're feeling brave.
