Tis the season of outdoor concerts, otherwise known as music festivals. Coachella kicked off festival season last month. Fashionable concert-goers rocked their boho best in a slew of cut-offs, crop tops and flash tats. For a cool but slightly more covered-up festival look, try a kimono over a tank top and jean shorts. You’ll stand out in a sea of bra-tops and short-shorts.
Kimonos are a boho summer staple. They were pretty much made to go with jean shorts. Sometimes the classic cutoffs and crop top combo needs an extra element. Kimonos not only provide coverage and a bit of warmth when facing the freezing indoor air conditioning temps, but it also adds a bit of style to a basic look. Kimonos are a great way to rock the ’70s trend for everyday. This outfit would also be perfect for a casual lunch date in the summer or a day of shopping with friends.
Jean shorts and a simple black crop top complete this festival-friendly look. Crop tops pair perfectly with high-waisted jean shorts because they show off your waistline and make your legs appear longer. A long chain necklace pops against the simple black background of the crop top. Simple black flat sandals and a chunky watch complete the casual and cute look.
One Simple Change: To take your outfit from Coachella to cocktails, swap the crop top and jean shorts for a T-shirt dress. A simple black T-shirt dress looks chic and effortless, especially when paired with a flowy kimono.
