STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Longline Kimonos

May 22nd, 2015 at 2:00am

For those of us who are on the short side, we know perfectly well the struggle of achieving a much taller stature. We can’t magically make ourselves taller (if only we had magical wands and this were a Harry Potter world.) But unfortunately, it’s not. However, you not need to pout because my dear fashion friends and lovers, I have a solution for you. I introduce you to longline kimonos.

This Fashionista has discovered the secret. Her longline floral kimono definitely makes her standout. These little fellas, or might I say, long fellas, are your ticket to looking taller. Their longline structure and easy flowing silhouette transforms you and tricks the eye into thinking you are taller than you really are. Not only are they a height enhancer, but they’re also perfect for layering. This Fashionista’s simple black ensemble is easily elevated and taken to the next level by simply adding this floral kimono. Her grungy-chic look takes on a new era and vibe due to the pop of color this kimono offers. Who would’ve thought that a spring floral can instantly become a whole new level of grunge? Oh the beauty of fashion.

Another fun and great thing about them is that they come in many different styles and patterns. This gives you the opportunity to play around with different looks and have different outfit choices.

So instead of opting for a short kimono, give a longline structure a try! I mean, you get the bonus of looking a few inches taller all while looking cool and making others stop to look at you. Picture please?

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I like wearing this kimono because I like the way it complements my body, and it is also comfortable. I think wearing something you feel good in makes all the difference!”
