ALL IN THE DETAILS: Kimono Kommotion

All In The Details

Ever looking for that one thing to finish off your trendy crop top and high-waisted set? Look no further, kimonos have your back. Literally. I don’t know about you, but I am loving the growing popularity and comeback that kimonos are making. Now you can find a wide array of kimonos offered in unique prints at many clothing stores. Talk about kimono “kommotion.”

One thing I absolutely love about kimonos is not only their elegant yet stylish flare but also their versatility. We all know summers can be steamy and hot however, kimonos are still light enough that you can still keep the clothing down to a minimal level with crop tops and shorts/skirts without losing any of that elegance you were striving for. Ranging from silk to chiffon, you can find the perfect kimono to suit your own style or look.

This Fashionista struts her own unique chiffon kimono from LF Stores. I don’t know which I love more, the vibrant floral print fabric or the lace embroidery which completes the look. She kept her crop top and shorts to a black monochromatic theme, keeping all the focus on her feminine and stylish kimono. To top it off the a stack of Alex and Ani bangles, a gold cuff and a leather Marc Jacobs watch are worn on her arm as well as a hamsa hand pendant necklace, traditionally worn in Jewish culture for protection.

How To: Get this Fashionista’s look by creating your own pieces to wear as a base. Whether its a crop set or a full length shirt paired with some cute shorts or skirts for an even more feminine look. You can check at your local boutiques or head to Free People, Urban Outfitters or NASTY GAL for a larger selection of kimonos. Finish your look by accessorizing with your own sets of arm candy or even try layering up the necklaces. However you choose to accessorize, your kimono always has your back!
