The kimono! While we used to rock wavy kimono’s with a loose fit a few years ago, we now tend to wear long silhouettes, tied at the waist. The kimono is an amazing addition to any outfit and can be worn both indoors and outdoors. Let me tell you more about the pro’s and cons…
The kimono can be either minimal and sober in white, black or nude. But it can also be colorful with prints and dessins. Either way it can lift up an outfit to a sophisticated ensemble.
As can be seen from the photos above, designers chose to combine the kimono to matching bottoms, mostly wide legged trousers. Here, the belt was either in the same color/print or in total contrast to the rest of the look. The fun part of this is of course that you could always choose to use another belt and, this way, play with the look.
I’ve found myself using my blazers as a kimono at times, simply tying something around my waist, bringing back a feminine silhouette. This is exactly why I like the look so much. Both flowy kaftans and oversized tailoring can be adjusted to something that brings back a feminine chique touch.
Let me know what you think!
