June 4th, 2015 at 2:00am

With summer right around the corner, everyone is looking for an excuse to whip out their shorts and T-shirts, even if Mother Nature is not ready for the switch yet. The cool spring breeze is still in the air, and it is not afraid to take prisoners! It may not be jacket weather on most days, but on the other days, you still may need something to keep your arms warm.

This Fashionista’s sheer kimono is perfect for those days where the weather is in between, a time when it is not too cold and not quite hot. A kimono is the perfect accessory to keep you warm on those mild days without making you sweat. Kimonos are my go-to accessories on mild days where I just want a little coverage over my arms or for when I just want to keep my outfit simple and chic. I also love kimonos because they come in many lovely prints! Any outfit will pop with the right printed kimono. No matter how simple you decide to keep your look, you will always look effortless and trendy. Whether it is solid, paisley, abstract or floral like this Fashionista’s kimono, you just can’t go wrong. Kimonos are spectacular and will make you stand out from the crowd. You can easily color coordinate any outfit to complement the kimono. You want to wear the kimono! Do not let the kimono wear you.

This Fashionista completed her ensemble with a felt hat, solid skater dress and a pair of black loafers. These items are perfect for those mild days where you want to wear that cute little dress while still being warm.

How To: Not sure how to rock the kimono? When you are wearing a printed kimono, the key is to keep every other aspect of your outfit simple. When you are wearing a solid colored kimono, don’t be afraid to go bold with print or pop of color. You want your kimono to be the accessory that brings your whole look together. You want to look effortless and fashion forward.
