This deceptively simple camisole hides a sexy little secret. The sweetheart neckline gives a hint, but the low scooped back screams “siren”. Wear it under a suit jacket to add interest or pair with something slinky for a night out on the town. With feminine details and simple construction, this will be a knit to reach for again and again.
