STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Keeping up with Kimonos

We’ve all been there—you want to wear a cute outfit but are tired of wearing the same shirt over and over again. You want to wear an everyday outfit without being too dressy. In comes the kimono to the rescue! Kimonos are a huge trend and come in all sorts of patterns, colors, and materials. Pair it with a solid black or white tank top and your favorite denim shorts and you’re ready to take on the day.

The kimono is widely popular among celebrities ranging from Nicole Richie to Shenae Grimes to Nicky Hilton to Miley Cyrus. Inspired by Asian fashion, this element has a bohemian feel. In the 1960s, hippy women made this a staple in their wardrobe. Now, the kimono has made a comeback as trends usually do. Today, kimonos are constantly being updated with different patterns, textures and colors to create a more modern feel.

This Fashionista made her kimono the main attraction of her look by pairing it with a plain black tank top and jean shorts. Her kimono is a cold shoulder piece, which adds a little something extra to the look. To create a more casual look, the Fashionista paired her ensemble with super comfortable, tan Rainbow flip-flops and Ray-Ban sunglasses.

The kimono this Fashionista is wearing is not available online but a similar one can be found here.
