I am, admittedly, something of a CAMI NYC superfan. Their 100% silk racerback camis are easily my most-worn top year-round. I wear them alone in the summer (the 100% silk is nice and cool), and layer them under cashmere for extra warmth in the winter.
I have a full review coming out (how to wash, style, and get the correct size)…but I suspect that the entire line is about to go on sale so I wanted to get some of their new pieces on everyone’s radar. Besides, some of these pieces would make really festive holidays-at-home looks.
Silk Camis, Lace Tank Tops & JOGGERS: What’s Good At CAMI NYC
In addition to the silk camis (which are gorgeous), CAMI NYC recently launched a line of similar pieces in a drapey jersey knit. Be still my heart.
And, because it’s still 2020…CAMI NYC also launched a new line of fleece joggers, in coordinating colors to match their camis. Let’s start there, shall we?
CAMI NYC Joggers + Matching Silk Tanks
This is genius, right? Joggers to match silk camis?? Especially when the joggers are a little fancy themselves. While they are *just* fleece joggers, they’re heavyweight and luxe: these joggers feel expensive. The ruffled waistband, gold-tipped drawstrings, and perfectly stitched pockets add to the appeal.
NOTE: Let’s just ignore the wrinkles in the top. I know, I KNOW.
The joggers are available in pecan (pictured), black, frost and oat — all colors have coordinating silk camis available as well.
Introducing…Jersey Racerback Camis (The CAMI NYC Aggie)
While this top does run a bit big…it’s gorgeous. Unlike the silk racerback, however, this cami shifts around a bit, so you’ll need a bra (strapless or a strappy racerback) unless you are more Free With The Nips than I.
NOTE: There’s also a jersey cami that’s an exact replica of the silk racerback…it might provide more coverage.
A Jersey & Lace Cami (The CAMI NYC Leia)
OMG I love this thing. This cami has a cool high-low vibe (basically a gray t-shirt fabric with black lace details), and can be worn with a regular bra. Your best bet will be a black bra with straps on the thinner side, but play around to see what works.
If you are short…you *might* want to get the straps taken up in the back, just so you can more easily hide a bra. This alteration would be pretty affordable, however, and totally worth it, IMO.
This cami is also available in black — I love both of them.
Still My Favorite: CAMI NYC Classic Silk Racerback (New Colors)
CAMI NYC is always adding new colors to their lineup…and this buffalo plaid (bizarrely named ‘crabapple gingham’) has a tendency to sell out quickly. I’ve found that this cami runs a bit big (I’m typically a size small in tops…but usually take an XS in this style).
The pecan (originally shown with matching joggers) is also lovely with denim…but you’ll never go wrong with classic black, either.
NOTE: The pecan one was new-out-of-the-box…the black one is years’ old, and has been washed several times. That accounts for the difference in sheen AND the difference in wrinkles.
A Pretty Silk & Lace Cami (The CAMI NYC Cosette)
Every year CAMI NYC comes out with some new silk-and-lace iteration, and this one is gorgeous. Unlike the classic racerback, I found that the Cosette cami runs a bit snug (or maybe just TTS), so the XS I’m wearing above is too tight across the chest.
My Favorite Cami For Layering (The CAMI NYC Olivia)
Guys, I am remiss I absolutely should’ve ordered one of the new Olivia silk camis…but completely missed it. My old silver one is long gone, but the new colors & patterns are fresh and gorgeous. This is actually my favorite style for layering over tees or turtlenecks. Like the classic racerback, this one runs a bit big, so I’m happiest in an XS.
The black lame is the most similar to my silver one above (and on crazy sale), but the Autumn Wildflower is heartbreakingly gorgeous (and also on sale). It’s also at Nordstrom (call for a price match).
If you guys have any other questions about these camis (I seriously wear them almost daily), let me know in the comments. My in-depth review is almost ready, and I want to make sure I have the bases covered.
Oh hey, Pinners…
