When you hear the word "Kimono" the first thing that may pop to your mind, is a typical Japanese garment. I am not referring to that, but the simple kimono jacket that you can wear in numerous ways, that seems to be back for summer. Long or short, tassled or plain, floral or lace, the choice is yours.
For those that are not brave, (or young) enough, a kimono over jeans looks great. You can vary the lengths quite a bit when wearing over pants, just be aware not to look as though you are dragging a robe behind you! Keep whatever you are wearing underneath fitted and in a colour that blends in with the pattern/colour of the kimono. Keep pants straight unless you looking for a 70's boho look.
Break up an all white outfit with a colourful kimono. This is one of the easiest ways to wear a monochromatic look.
Love this feminine look of wearing a kimono over a summer dress. Remember the more similar the tones the softer the look.
