One of my favorite trends for the upcoming season is the layered silk camisole.
It’s wearable, it’s flattering and it’s versatile… and it kind of reminds me of the fashion from one of the best 90’s shoes of all time: Beverly Hills 90210! Can’t you just picture Donna Martin rockin’ the layered silk camisole on a night out at The Peach Pit!?
Almost 20 years later, I love this look just as much — if not more…
What I’m Wearing:
ATM Camisole // J.Crew Tissue Tee // J.Crew Wide Leg Trousers (old; THESE are similar!) // Topshop Lace Up Flats (no longer available, THESE are similar!) // Susu Handbag (old; LOVE this Vince Camera Bag!)
I paired my SILK CAMISOLE with a lightweight LONG SLEEVE T-SHIRT and a favorite pair of WIDE LEG TROUSERS. For day, I chose to wear a comfortable pair of LACE-UP FLATS, but don’t hesitate to swap out the flats for a sexy pair of strappy sandals at night.
While this lingerie dressing trend might be slightly intimidating at first, relax. For as sexy as it is, the look can also ooze mature sophistication. A basic black camisole can be worn tucked into a pencil skirt, topped with your favorite blazer (how about VELVET?), or worn loose and relaxed layered over a tee and wide leg trousers like the look above.
Remember those silk spaghetti strap slip dresses of the bygone 90’s era? Those too, fit this trend profile. Try layering your slip dress over a tee, or slim-fit turtleneck for an updated spin on a 90’s classic!
You might notice my makeup is looking slightly upgraded which I cannot take any credit for! Kelly Miron owner and lead makeup artist at THE POWDER ROOM is the wizard behind this “Peachy Keen” fall beauty look! One of the biggest beauty trends shown at the Fall 2016 runway shows was soft, peach hued makeup. The supremely feminine style is a departure from the typical, dramatic, fall color palette we’re all used to. I love the way the peachy-bronze tone of the makeup plays off our natural end-of-summer glow.
I actually shot 3 separate makeup styles with Kelly — so stay tuned! I’ll be posting a full Fall 2016 beauty guide soon!
Whether the 90’s or the present, one thing is certain: nothing is sexier than just a hint of what lies underneath!
