What I Wore

Kimono + Jeans

IMG_7898

The English translation of the word kimono means “thing to wear”. Kimonos have proven to be more than just than a thing to wear. They have transcended cultural boundaries and have become a staple in bohemian fashion. Additionally, the kimono has made a big impact on fashion girls’ wardrobes this summer and is not showing any signs of slowing down as we roll into (dare I say it) the fall.

While kimonos are a hot commodity, they can be difficult to style. It’s important to not over think it. The kimono over jeans is a great style combo. It has the same effect as wearing a blazer or a jacket to complete a look; but has more of a dramatic effect.

Wear solid monochromatic color underneath your kimono. This will allow the kimono to take center stage. It will also give a slimming effect; especially when worn with closely fitted clothing, such as skinny jeans or a pencil skirt. As we’re on the brink of fall, boot season is also approaching. Ankle boots, over the knee boots, any boots will look gray with your kimono help you to personalize our style.
