A silk-satin cami top isn't just for bedroom shenanigans - here's how you can pull off one without looking like you're about to amble into a club


The lingerie-inspired piece of the hour is Ellery's wine-burgundy silk-satin cami top. Ruched by the side with ribbon ties for a flattering effect, its fluid silhouette lends a remarkably chic aesthetic without looking overly risqué.

Not forgetting that your outfit needs to be work-appropriate, put on this sleek cotton bomber jacket by Valentino that features tie-dye prints in green and burgundy tones. While the burgundy hue complements that of your cami, the butterfly appliqué embroideries elevate your ensemble subtlely.

A pair of fitted trousers might just be too predictable, so why not don these cropped, stretch-denim jeans this Friday? Its slightly whiskered finish offers a classic yet contemporary edge to juxtapose the feminine vibe of your top.
