Street Dreams| 3 Ways to Rock a Kimono

Add some oriental exoctica into your Summer wardrobe with a kickass KIMONO.

Kimonos are simple and heavenly to style. The term kimono literally translate as "thing to wear”.  A beautiful kimono can turn so many looks on it’s head.

Here are 3 ways to rock a kimono:

1. Throw a long or short kimono over the good ol' staple- denim shorts and a white tee for a funky day look or into a super sassy after 5 get up by adding some layered necklaces and it’s wine o’clock!

2. Wear it over the top of a monochromatic outfit  and you have a smart casual look to spice up a date or drinks with the girls.

3. The same kick ass kimono can convert into your new sexy beach throw over and the long styles can provide great sun protection too.

The more your play more you play with them the more outfits you will create. You will create. They are versatile, timeless and a fabulous fashion statement. 

The one i'm wearing has been made by my dressmaker. If you are keen to have one custom made check out my styling services I can help you source the fabric, pattern and a dressmaker. The kimono epitomises feminine elegance. Who doesn’t love opulent patterns and shimmery fabrics?
