4 Ways to Wear a Kimono
Kimonos have become a trendy wardrobe piece. I have a couple of beautiful kimonos in my closet that I usually pair with understated, mostly black clothing to allow the kimono to be the focus of the outfit. Let’s be real, I’m not that fashionable and have a difficult time coming up with unique looks. Kimonos can be so much more versatile so with a little fashion advice from a former fashion blogger friend, I’ve put together a few looks to give you a little inspiration when it comes to styling your kimono. And if you don’t have a kimono yet, what are you waiting for? I’m absolutely in love with the gorgeous kimonos from Urban Cowgirl Designs. They are buttery soft, perfectly crafted and sure to collect compliments with every wear. Better yet, Urban Cowgirl Designs was started locally (Lethbridge) by one gorgeous mama who hustles hard to create beautiful pieces to wear each season.
A perfect layering piece for the office, wear your kimono in place of a blazer over a fitted dress, pencil skirt or skinny trouser with a pair of coloured heels. I kept my colours understated to let the kimono do the talking.
Drinks with friends, a trip to the market, or chasing kids, a kimono goes great with a pair of shorts, or distressed jeans, graphic tee and casual shoes or sandals. Don’t be afraid to mix bold tees with feminine prints. Honestly, I never would have thought to pair graphic tees with printed layering pieces and I’m always far too nervous to mix my prints but I really loved these looks and have worn them a ton over the summer.
Whether you’re taking a romantic walk along the beach or taking in a movie, a pair of coloured ankle pants, a plain tee, and some strappy sandals set the mood for this romantic look.
Whether you’re headed to the gym or hanging at the beach, or maybe even wearing something a little sexy at home, a kimono makes a great cover up. While I’m not one to care about workout fashion, I must say, I’m a big fan of wearing my kimono over my athletic wear!
