Today's #lookoftheday post is all about the Kimono craze we have going on. It was a hot trend last summer, but this year the kimono has made an even bigger comeback! It's a fact: the kimono is THE essential item for the summer. It is one of the most coveted trends, and I think that is mostly due to how versatile this item is. You can basically wear this cover up over anything; jeans, skirts, dresses, shorts, cropped tops, literally anything! Wear it to the beach over your swimwear, or to the office over black jeans and you are sure to look nothing less than stunning and of course, trendy. Whilst it suits most body shapes, it is good to remember that the kimono does nothing for our figure. It makes our shoulders look slouchier so it may not be for everyone. But I personally couldn't care less about that! The beautiful touch of colour and sophistication by just throwing one on is totally worth it. I am going for that bohemian look this summer and what a better way to do that than by wearing this staple item. Here's my kimono look, enjoy!
Kimono: Matalan - Jeans: Gap - Heels: New Look
Sunglasses: Ray Ban - Necklaces: Matalan - Bag: Michael Kors
I love wearing this kimono over a plain black dress, but I chose to pair it with some ripped jeans instead for that elegant and yet casual look. My beautiful (and comfy I must add) faux suede red heels compliment the flower print on the kimono extremely well and I of course had to choose my favourite red lipstick (Kiko 908 True Red) to complete the look. The layered necklaces add a delicate touch and I love how easy and fun it is to pick different length pieces and play mix and match. The combinations are endless!
With more options than ever and at a huge price range, you’re bound to find a kimono suitable for your wardrobe and your wallet. Floral, maxi or fringed, you name it; they're the new hot thing and you definitely need one...or two...or a whole bunch! What do you guys think? Let me know below!
