When your wardrobe is bursting at the hinges with statement pieces, sometimes you need the perfect basic to pull a look together.
My love of cardigans and my massive, button-defying breasts mean that vests are an essential building block in my wardrobe, but a cotton top can undermine the glamour of an otherwise high voltage outfit.
That’s why I was so delighted with this camisole from Biba. It’s simple enough to wear with attention-grabbing items like this fabulous 1950s vintage cardigan and this hotrod-hot-pink pencil skirt, but the lace detail in the fabric makes it special in its own right. Stocking up on pretty-go-with-anything camis like this one makes getting dressed a far less traumatic experience.
