STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Kimono Craze

This summer, the perfect addition to any outfit is a kimono. Their lightweight fabric and vibrant colors are ideal for any hot summer day!

Kimonos are so convenient because they can easily give a boring outfit some color and flair. For me, a typical summer outfit consists of high-waisted denim shorts and a crop top or sometimes a simple dress. A kimono over either of these outfits can really complete your look and make a difference for any basic pieces in your closet.

Another thing I love is that kimonos come in all shapes and colors! Wearing a longer kimono will really dress up your outfit, while shorter kimonos like the one this Fashionista is wearing is perfect for denim shorts and a tank top. Kimonos with fringe along the hem are also big this summer and give even more of a boho look. I also think they make great cover-ups over a bikini for the beach as the airy fabric will keep you feeling cool and looking stylish even in hot temperatures.

This Fashionista is wearing her printed beige, navy and olive green kimono with a simple navy blue tank top, denim shorts and beige wedges. This is the perfect summer outfit for any lunch with the girls or backyard party. The wedges dress up the outfit and match perfectly with the colors of the kimono. This Fashionista pairs her outfit with another trend seen a lot this summer: monogram necklaces. The monogram necklace adds a feminine touch to the look as well.
