In middle school, my ideal outfit consisted of low-rise jeans, Adidas shell toes, and not one, but two layered camis in contrasting colors. Nowadays I’m dedicated to straight-leg denim, I’ve swapped my Superstars for Air Maxes, and my camisoles are now made of silk. Not much has changed, and that’s because the camisole is a wardrobe staple. Wear it to work with a blazer, fall asleep in a cotton tank, or hit the town trimmed in lace. We narrowed it down to the 13 best camisoles that meet all your needs, here.

Butter Camisole

Commando nordstrom.com

$48.00

The #1 Basic  

Commando, hands down, makes the best simple cami. It’s easy to layer under sheer tops without adding bulk, but FYI they only come in neutral colors. 

4-Pack Camisole

Amazon Essentials amazon.com

$19.00

The Bulk Buy

For those who wear camisoles on the daily, do yourself a favor and buy them in bulk. 

The Racer Top

Cami NYC shopbop.com

$148.00

Little Black Cami

When going out and dressing in doubt, the easiest outfit is a lace cami and black skinny jeans. My favorite comes from a brand that specializes in them, New York-based Cami NYC. 

Heart Embroidered Cami Top

Topshop topshop.com

$6.00

That’s So ’90s

Seventh grade me would have loved this top, and [age redacted] me feels the same exact way. 

Slim Perfect Tank Top

J.Crew jcrew.com

$22.50

Secret Support

This cami has a bra on the inside, but by the looks of it you’d never guess it. It doesn’t look nearly as… sculptural as most built-in camis, making it way chicer.  

maddox blouse

Babaton aritzia.com

$78.00

Wear It To Work

Tank tops are not always work-appropriate, but the ones from Aritzia are. Their crepe styles are so good they can be worn alone or with a blazer on top. 

Lace camisole

Saint Laurent net-a-porter.com

$990.00

The Runway Edition

If your style looks strikingly similar to Paris Fashion Week, Saint Laurent has you covered. Kind of. For the fearless, wear it without a bra like they did on the runway. 

Chantilly Lace-Trimmed Camisole

Danielle Frankel net-a-porter.com

$1,990.00

The Bridal Cami

For the non-traditional bride, this camisole is just as dramatic as a ball gown. Alternatively, wear it to your rehearsal dinner with flowing white trousers. 

Alicia Silk Zebra-Print Cami

Anine Bing bloomingdales.com

$179.00

The Wild Card

As we mentioned, we love a lace camisole. Double down on the sultry vibe with an animal print and red leather pants. 

Airism Camisole

Uniqlo uniqlo.com

$9.90

The Easy Breezy Cami 

Tight, stretchy camisoles can feel restrictive and sweaty. Uniqlo solved that issue with a super lightweight fabric that truly breathes so well even athletes wear them. 

Long Tank Top

H&M hm.com

$4.99

The Longline 

If you prefer more coverage over your derriere, choose a longer camisole like this budget-buy from H&M. 

Grand Soleil Camisole

Kiki de Montparnasse net-a-porter.com

$295.00

Boudoir Appeal  

We’re not 100% sure whether this is considered lingerie, but it’s so pretty we’d wear it out, too. 

Thinstincts Convertible Camisole

Spanx nordstrom.com

$58.00

The Shapeshifter 

Spanx is a celebrity pick for red carpet appearances, so why not wear one on a Tuesday? Their surprisingly comfortable camisoles will flatter without restriction.
