Camisoles for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Under a Blazer
Quote of the day: “Ah, kindness. What a simple way to tell another struggling soul that there is love to be found in this world.” – A. A. Malee
As my last post of the camisole series, I’m showing us all wearing the item as your shirt under a blazer. We first started this challenge by putting a cami under a shirt, here. Then we showed a different cami under a dress here. Have you worn them all these ways before?
Originally, I rationalized that I would consider wearing a camisole under another piece of clothing for modesty sake. But there’s also another great reason to wear one. You can add some extra color to your outfits with these pieces!
And even though it’s getting colder outside, if you spend the majority of your time inside, then possibly you dress yourself for temperate temperatures. In those cases, wearing a camisole under a blazer could be a year round possibility!
Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: This blazer was a fabulous find at the consignment store! Since it’s quite colorful on it’s own, I matched my camisole to blend in with it.
I have a couple of these camisoles that have lace edging at both the top and the bottom. Many times I end up tucking in the bottom portion, but this time I thought I’d let it show.
I even left off a necklace on purpose, so that the focal point rested on the blazer & camisole. I did add in a bracelet which I won last year! I also need to get around to shortening these jeans!! They are next on the list!
Jeans: Juicy Couture (similar here)~~Blazer: Renate Nucci-thrifted (similar here with flowers but in B & W, and here in pink)~~Cami Under: (similar here)~~Shoes: Abound (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)
Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: Nancy had a velvet jacket hiding in her closet, so I had her throw it on. We also pulled out her lace extender to have the camisole be a fun surprise at the bottom portion of the jacket.
Even though we had Nancy wear jeans with this outfit, I thought some pretty bling would be nice by her face!
We styled this lace extender in a blog series here, here & here last March, if you’d like to revisit those posts!
Jeans: Lee (similar here)~~Jacket: Alex (similar here as a blazer and here as a bomber, but tres expensive!)~~Cami Under: Grace & Lace(here)~~Shoes: Ecco (here)~~Necklace: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)
Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: My mom has sewn a couple of her camisoles hanging in her closet. This turquoise one is made of silk with a raw edge on the bottom. Since it’s so pretty, we decided to leave the blazer unbuttoned so you could appreciate it!
My mom actually recreated this blazer. It was started by a friend, who lost interest in it many years ago. So my mom finished putting it together and made it look great!
Since the camisole is a turquoise blue, we accessorized with the same color in her jewelry and even her shoes!
Pants: Belly-B-Gone (similar here)~~Blazer: Mom recreated it (similar here)~~Cami Under: Mom made it (similar here)~~Shoes:Ellen Tracy (similar here)~~Necklace: (similar here earrings included)~~Earrings: (similar here)

Another option for the same job as a camisole, would be a short sleeve shirt:
