Kicking It With Kimonos
Kimonos are traditionally seen in Asian culture – mainly in Japan and China. However fashion has adapted the kimono into something totally wearable for everyday. Kimonos are amazing and a great staple piece for your wardrobe. I highly recommend this wonderful piece of garment. You can wear them all seasons too – Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring. They are always doable. Stores like Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, and Marshalls are carrying these fashion pieces nowadays – don’t miss out. Here are some great ways to rock a kimono this Summer.
1. At The Beach
Not only is it an amazing piece to add to your wardrobe – you also can wear it as a cover up at the beach. Different and definitely more fashionable then your Dad’s pick t-shirt you held hostage to wear as a coverup at the beach. It’s lightweight, easy to pack, and you look cute. Add a flower headband and you literally could be at Coachella.
2. Day Time Attire
A kimono can add some color and flair to your jean shorts and white tank look. It adds a different take on your style then say, a statement necklace might do. It’s a way to add color to a seemingly boring outfit, without being sweltering hot in the Summer. It’s perfect for those days you’re running late and still need to look presentable.
3. Night Time Getup
Black on black outfit with a pop of color in the kimono for a night time out with your girls is perfection. You will be comfortable – which is key – and also look fashionable, which is also key. It’s lightweight, as mentioned before. That’s a big plus because it allows you to rock it in a bar or a club without being too hot, having to take it off, and ultimately loosing it. We’ve all lost a sweater or two while out, right? Just me? Okay. Either way – the kimono is a perfect outfit choice for nights out.
The kimono is a new style and something I can see lasting for many years to come. It’s easy to wear, and makes for a different look than you may normally go for. What do you think? Would you rock a kimono? If so, how? Let us at Luevo know in the comments below!
