Heya lovelies, how was your week? Anything interesting so far? Mine went well.
With a pressing need to always look stylish and different, Kimonos has become the current style favorite of style lovers, bloggers, and fashionistas, everywhere!.
It has become a Summer staple over the past couple of years, everyone is wearing them and I can see why, they’re versatile and add something extra to an outfit without being a thick and heavy layer, definitely not what you want in this weather lol. Whether you’re rocking it over your cut-offs and tank top or need a quick cover up for your sexy bikini, the versatility of the kimono is something we definitely need to talk about.
Privonne challenged me to style a Kimono three different ways to show just how versatile they are.
For my first look, I styled the kimono as a light cover up over a dress. I could really wear this kimono as a cover up over virtually anything, it would be a great way to add some color to a basic black/white dress. In the summer time, I could even wear it as a cover-up for a swimsuit, all I need is my imagination. I wore basic pumps in a muted blue color, to not make the outfit look too busy.
Another way I styled the kimono, is as a dress. If the material is quite light and it’s quite cold outside, you can wear a tight basic dress underneath. The key to making a dress from this kimono is to add a fabulous wide belt. I opted for a wide corset type belt. The belt reminds me of the wide sashes actual kimonos are tied with.
For my third look which I think is the look, I would wear the Kimono with the most, is over a dress shirt tucked in jeans. I think it fits really nicely and would be lovely for so many occasions.
I love how these looks turned out! And again the options are endless! Wear it over jeans, colored slim trousers, or a short skirt. Add different shoes and accessories and suddenly the look has a completely different feel.
Kimonos are great pieces to add to any wardrobe and the versatility of it makes it a great investment piece. Are you a lover of Kimonos? If you’ve got any outfit posts featuring Kimonos I’d love to see them and get some more ideas on how to style mine.
