When it’s as hot as it is in Florida during the summer, the last thing you want to think about is layering on clothing. Heck, you’re most likely googling what the legal amount of clothing is to go out in public with the least number of garments covering your body. For the lovers of layering out there, the heat has not eliminated the lovely clothing item that most like to call: a kimono. This Fashionista decided to laugh in summer’s face and layer on the thin fabric over her burgundy tank top.
Kimonos are incredibly light weight and won’t make you feel like you’re wearing more than you should during a 90 degree day. That means you won’t have to succumb to wearing the legal limit to feel like your clothes are bearable in the heat. Plus, if you find one with a cute pattern or interesting stitching, a simple outfit can instantly turn into one that seems like you took a little extra time to get ready. We all know that a piece like this is a treasure especially during busy days.
This Fashionista easily amped up the casual tank top and jeans combo and made her outfit look extra cute with her floral kimono. The burgundy tone on her top complemented the roses on the kimono. A light wash pair of jeans balancing off the dark tones in this look made this outfit wearable during the day time. Finishing off the look, the tones and textures of her brown sandals and muted green backpack were a perfect touch to allow the colors of the kimono to contrast off of.
How To: To recreate this look all you really need is a kimono. If you want to keep it fresh and summery, a floral patterned kimono would be ideal. Let yourself layer during the hot summer and allow the thin fabric to brush over your shoulders whenever you wear a simple tank top. To complete the look add your favorite pair of jeans.
