Hi everyone! Today I wanted to talk to you about kimono’s and why I think you should try this trend out.
First, and foremost, let’s talk about their versatility. Kimono’s have become such a versatile piece to have in your closet. Ranging in lengths and colors, they can cover a variety of occasions and seasons. Longer lengths can be used as a swimsuit cover up and also paired with denim shorts and a tank during the summer. For the Fall, kimono’s pair perfectly with a cute pair of denim and heels or even sandals.
Being a mom of two little ones, there are certain times or occasions where I just feel a little more comfortable being “covered up” (school events, etc.) but I don’t’ want to worry about getting too hot. This has been the perfect outfit for those times. Kimono’s tend to be lightweight, therefore keeping you covered while keeping you cool.
I especially love pairing a kimono with white or black denim. An all white ensemble topped with a pretty kimono, is a great way to add a pop of color, pattern and interest to your outfit, all while keeping it classic and chic. This is also a great option if you are looking to wear white after Labor Day.
Kimono’s are one of those pieces that can essentially go with everything, from swimsuits to shorts to dresses to jeans, the styling options are honestly endless. Even when it comes to shoes, kimonos work great paired with sandals, flats and even peep toe booties when the weather starts to cool off.
And kimonos are not just limited to “after work” hours. You could easily dress a kimono up and make it work appropriate by pairing it with a pretty cami and a skinny pant with heels. Also, did you see that companies like Banana Republic and Express make a “legging” work pant?! Umm where were those when I was working?! You better believe I would have stocked up on those!
Below I have linked some ideas on how you can rock a kimono!
