hip to be square

why this retro cut camisole is making a comeback.

by liza darwin

There are tons of clothes we wish we'd saved from middle school--hello, cat print T-shirts and daisy embroidered jackets!--and thanks to the resurgence of the square neck camisole, it's time to add another to the list. It's one part halter, one part tank top, and one part racerback...and these ingredients make this strappy hybrid a seriously flattering combination. 

Clearly we're not the only ones into it, either. Alexander Wang rolled out several incarnations of the silhouette (including a leather version), and everyone from Nasty Gal to ASOS has hopped onboard the trend in a big way. Whether you pair yours with baggy boyfriend jeans or a high-waisted skirt, consider this your new necessity to your summer model-off-duty-inspired uniform.
