The only item of clothing more transitional than a white T-shirt? A cami, of course! The thin, spaghetti strapped top is the ideal option when looking to go from day to night, season to season and, best of all, outfit to outfit. A cami can be worn with anything, to anything and for anything. It’s as versatile as it is transitional.

There is nothing chicer than a cami. The classic, clean silhouette is not only highly transitional but extremely wearable. Just look at Kim Kardashian, Kate Beckinsale or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, just three of the many (many!) celebrities proving how effortless a cami can be styled into any and every wardrobe. From work hours to after-hours to weekend brunches and just about everything in-between, camis are the cherry on top of our outfits. Want to wear but don’t know how or where? Consider this the ultimate guide to finding the perfect cami. In today’s cami 101, these are the seven must-have options!

What It Is: Trust Your Thinstincts Camisole by Spanx

What It’s For: The best basic cami and a barely-there option

Why We Love It: This camisole is the perfect piece when looking for the best basic cami. The soft nude is so light and sheer that it can be worn underneath articles of clothing and as a stand-alone option, too. This cami comes with Spanx’s signature smoothing technology to help smoothe the midsection. Personally, we love the adjustable shoulder straps and wide band at the bottom. This feature is great when looking to adjust the cami to a comfortable fit and be sure it will stay in place without riding up.
