Kimonos are really coming back into their own and are a worthwhile addition to Spring, Summer and Fall looks this year. They really amp up the most simplistic of outfits. A kimono can take you from casual to smart, beach to bar and day to night. They are definitely a wardrobe workhorse and add a modern twist to a tee and jeans combo or Cami and wide, crop pants.
A trusty sneaker and jeans combo gets style savvy with this gorgeous kimono from Nordstrom. Gossamer light fabric with a burnt out velvet design, a definite wardrobe must have. Perfect to spend the afternoon strolling the beautiful botanical gardens at the Huntington Library in Pasadena.
Deep side slits are perfect for creating a different style. Loosely trying the front and leaving the back, gives a different look to an outfit.
A tonal Cami keeps the look muted, but makes it easy to add in a pop of colour, in this case, a bright clutch.
The Devore velvet gives a bit of daytime glamour and sparkle and takes this kimono easily from day to night. the look is kept current and fresh with the skinny, washed black jeans with raw hems and side slits from Gap.
A quick change of shoe is all it took to take this look to dinner. Blush is another soft tone to keep an eye out for this season. Freshen your Spring wardrobe with a multitasking kimono.
