In the cold months, throw on an oversize sweater that has some elastic at the base, it really creates some fun proportions. You can also wear it with a bodysuit, a cami, or your favorite t-shirt.

While the classic cami is something you will want to have in your closet, think of the Velvet Cami ($20, originally $25) as its older sister.
