Wear Your Kimono 4 Ways

I’m sure I’ve said this enough times…”I love kimonos” I think it’s more of an obsession. I literally just purchased a star print kimono last week. Kimonos come in different lengths and styles. I prefer the longer ones with neutral colours. Fabric is also a factor when it comes to choosing a kimono. Chiffon is good for that light airy feel and perfect for a hot day. The stretch jersey that Vivo Active Wear uses is also perfect, gives the kimono weight and adds an elegant vibe to a look. My favourite is the grey one, of course, I wore it yesterday with my black and white pants.

It’s impossible to exhaust the number of ways one can wear a kimono. These are just 4 ways, I could have done more but I’ll save some for later. I believe in trusting your gut when it comes to dressing up since you know your body best and you know what works best for you. However, I’m going to give a few guiding tips on when you should reach out for a kimono.

As A Cover Up

If you’re one of those people who wear swimwear just to lounge by the pool and talk and catch up with friends, this is perfect as a poolside beachwear cover up.

On It's Own

Belt up, adjust and wear your kimono as a dress. Perfect to show your Angelina Jolie right leg skills. Perfect sexy without being too much

Add Colour

If you’re wearing a plain neutral coloured look, a coloured kimono is perfect to inject colour into the look.

Different Lengths

A kimono is perfect for adding different lengths aspect to a look. For example, you have a short skirt on or short shorts a kimono will give a different length dimension to the look.

How do you wear your kimono?

    I love the purple and blue kimono. Those are my colours. You have styled them so well, inspired me to buy one or two. Great post as usual. x
