Here is a top that could be very formal, but with a cute pair of jeans could really dress it down a lot. The Pintuck Camisole by Ella Moss is a great shirt because you can wear it with so much. Jeans or pants, by itself or with a cute cardigan or jacket. As usual, the website we found the cami on won't give us details, so we don't know what it's made out of or anything in particular. However, it has a tie around the waist, and the pintucks are only in the front. It comes in two colors, pink and pomegrant.

The Shirt Snob has found another Lotta Stensson top, and this one is even better than the rest because it's on sale, almost 50% off! The Embroidered Sun Top (not to be confused with the Drapery Petal Sun Top) is made of silk chiffon with beads and handsewn embroidery flowers along the top hem. The shoulder straps are ruffled, and the bottom hem is uneven. This shirt is dressy enough to wear under a suit, but it would work great on it's own in the summer. This top comes in black, mauve, and peach, but sizes are limited so go check it out now.

The Shirt Snob just found a new camisole from one of our favorite designers Lotta Stensson, the Drapery Petal Sun Top. This cami has an asymmetrical bottom hem, a lose, flowing body, adjustable straps, and an elastic hem on the upper back. The best part of this top though is definitely the detailing. The beads, stones and sequins on the upper bust area are amazing and beautiful, and their colors are a nice contrast to the lavendar material of the top. This top also comes brown with earthy colored detailing.

Today is Diane von Furstenberg day here at Shirt Snob! We've found two great tops by her, we hope you like them both. The first is the Natalya Sequin Top in august patchwork which is a diagonal geometric print, one of many of von Furstenberg's great patterns. Made of 100% silk, this camisole has sequin detail at the top and bottom hems as well as throughout the body. There is also pintuck detail just below the bust, and there are spaghetti straps. This top is so fun, we think it'd be great for a night on the town, although it would also look great under a nice black suit if you want to be flashy in the board room as well.

The Shirt Snob has found the cutest Camisole that would look great with a suit, although you could certainly dress it down as well with a nice pair of jeans. Made by Max Studio, the cami is made out of stretchy silk charmeuse, so it's soft and lightweight. The straps are a handmade lace bordered by silk ribbons, and the keyhole at the neckline is made of the same. Besides the brown shown, this cami also comes in blueprint. We love the keyhole and the straps, they make this a very sexy top, yet still appropriate for work.

The Shirt Snob has found another great top that would work well by itself or under a cute sweater or jacket. The Velvet Patchwork Cami by Hale Bob is pretty, but more importantly, it's velvet. Who doesn't love wearing velvet? It's one of those great fabrics that are so cozy and soft and so much fun to wear in the cooler months. The bottom half of the camisole has crinkled velvet, while the top part around the bust is made of a patchwork fabric and is decorated with sequins and embroidery. The top has adjustable spaghetti straps and there is a silk band that goes below the bust and a ribbon that ties in the front. The bottom hem is decorated in lace and has tiny beads on it.

The Shirt Snob is sorry we haven't posted in the past few days, we haven't been feeling well. The Shirt Snob is happy to announce she is pregnant (yay!), but this leaves her feeling sick and exhausted most of the time. However, we must press on, and there is no better top to do that with than the Softest Babydoll Cami by Free People. After discovering Free People last week, we cannot get enough of them. Sure, there are some tops that are not our taste, but there are a bunch that we really really like, and for great prices too. And this camisole is so cute and looks so soft, we really really want it (if only we could fit into it). The top is made of a blend of wool and angora. There is an elastic under the bust and chroched lace trim under and above the bust and along the straps. We love this cami because it truly looks like the softest cami ever, and since it's a little heavier, it'd be perfect for the fall. Besides the sunlight yellow shown, it also comes in dark purple.

It's Theory day! Another great top by another great designer. The Claudetta Flutter is flirty and fun, a really cute flowy camisole. There is ruching at the bust, 5 buttons on the side, and the spaghetti straps tie at the shoulders. We love the ribbon banding tie at the high waist, this makes the top unique. The shell and the lining are made up of mostly silk with a little spandex in there too. Besides gravel, it also comes in thistle and black.

We have found the most elegant camisole we think we've ever seen, the Silk Cami by Rebecca Taylor. Wear it alone or under a suit to work, it'll make you look just a little more glamourous and stylish than everyone else. There is twisted ribbon detailing at the front of the straps, pintuck detail at the bust and bottom hem, and there is ruching in the back. Besides that, there is beaded lace banding at the neck and adjustable spaghetti straps. The neat part of this camisole is that it's actually in two pieces, which tie at the waist for closure. If you want something trendy and classy, definitely consider this top.

We've found a cute new camisole that would look great under a nice jacket. The Marais Camisole by Catherine Malandrino is is beautiful and so soft you'll want to wear it every day. There is 2 inch smocking at the waist and at the neck and ruching at the banding. There is also silk banding at the bottom hem. There are spaghetti straps, a hidden side zipper, and is lined also with 100% silk. Malandrino tries hard with each piece to create a soft elegance, and the Shirt Snob definitely thinks that she did this with this cami, it is about as elegant as can be.
