This might be a little too specific - I've been looking for clean, plain silk tanks/ camisoles without lace or embellishments etc i.e. tops that have the Calvin Klein clean lines aesthetic if that makes sense. I haven't had much luck except for a top from Topshop which is perfect except for being slightly cropped:





I've looked on shopstyle but I can't seem to find anything close. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Are you looking to wear them alone as tops or as an under layer? Wintersilks has plain silk camis but many styles are sheer and lightweight. I have quite a few and layer them under tops for added warmth or coverage.

Sorry OP, I just checked their site and they don't have the plain styles anymore. I got a whole bunch last year but maybe they got discontinued. :(

J Crew has some http://www.jcrew.com/womens_category...1421/21421.jsp

John Lewis' are cheap but look like they might be stretchy, although say 100% silk http://www.johnlewis.com/130831/Product.aspx

This one looks very similar to the one you posted http://www.lucza.com/collection/cami...-in-black-silk

If I were you I'd keep checking Ebay, and maybe even lingere shops.

The links takes me to the main page?

They don't have to be silk but I prefer it as I want to wear the tops under cardigans or on their own, not to layer. Just long as there's clean lines also the price-point needs to be reasonable i.e. up to £100. I'm not really looking for high-end brands.

Also, I should probably add I'm in the UK and I'd rather stick within the EU for any online shipping!

thanks for the links, I'll try ebay again but whenever I try there or Shopstyle I get frustrated by all the lace/net/patterns of the tops

The Jcrew and last one look good, I'll investigate further

thanks, the second is too long and tunic-esque which I'm not into but the A.Wang is more like it except...here I go being difficult again, I have a slight scar on my chest and don't favour long Vee's for this reason - I'm sure I'll find something eventually!

This is going to sound nutty, but have you tried checking Forever 21? I've been in there recently, and they have some nice silk camisoles and tanks for around $25 - $30. Mostly I've seen them in the Love21 section.

I love the Lafayette 148 New York Charmeuse Tank on nordstrom, I tried on a ton of different options and this was the only one that I thought was flowy but still flattering

Didn't realise you were in the UK, Fenwicks, John Lewis and Debenhams are all great places to try. Pretty sure they all have personal shoppers who, if you phone ahead of your visit, can usually pick some things out for you. I've seen lots of silk camisoles in the lingere departments there.

Do you have Massimo Dutti in UK? Otherwise Warehouse or Oasis sometime have great silk tops.
