We have all fallen victim to unfortunate trends in the past. Whether it was the UGG boot takeover or the gaucho frenzy, most of us can relate to a fashion faux pas. Ladies, put away your ponchos because one of the hottest statement pieces right now is the kimono. Kimonos are very versatile and can be worn with many different outfits.
A kimono is actually a traditional Japanese garment and when translated it means “thing to wear.” Today, kimonos are sold worldwide by most popular clothing stores. They were also very popular during the 1970s, sometimes with fringe along the sleeves and bottom. When shopping for the perfect kimono, you can go fun and fringy, floral and flirty or you can just keep it simple. With so many varieties in style, print and length, you can pair the perfect kimono with almost any outfit.
Check out this Fashionista’s look to see how she rocks the kimono. She pairs it with a black fitted T-shirt, dark wash jeans and cute sandals. As the leaves continue to change and it gets colder you can easily swap out the sandals for a pair of flats or boots. Her outfit would not be complete without her Michael Kors handbag, her simple necklace or her Marc Jacobs sunglasses.
