[Featured above: TOPSHOP Embroidered Kimono Jacket, $90.]
Stop saving your kimono for the boudoir! This little piece of silky apparel wants to get noticed on the street.
Pair a kimono with shorts or a boyfriend jeans. Drape a kimono over a maxi dress or a slouchy pair of khakis. Seriously, the opportunities to make a fashion forward statement with this darling trend are endless. Don’t be shy.
Treat a kimono as you would a lightweight jacket. And play with the lengths. You can wear a cropped kimono, mid-length, or maxi. In fact, I think you should get one of each! And if you want to be really daring and stand out in the crowd, I say shop for a vintage kimono. With a vintage piece, you can really look unique.
Take a leap of faith and add a kimono (or two) to your collection of outerwear. Below, I’ve put together a nice grouping of kimonos, all priced under $100. If you see something you like, just click the pic for shopping info. Incorporate the kimono trend now, and thank me later.
