KIMONO

What is a kimono?

A kimono is a traditional Japanese garment in the form of a long, loose robe with wide sleeves, tied with a sash. The word “kimono” means a “thing to wear” (ki “wear” and mono “thing”). The history of the kimono dates back the Heian period (794-1192). In modern Japan, kimonos are mostly worn by women, particularly on special occasions.

Kimono as a current fashion trend

Everyone has been rocking a kimono lately and it’s the one summer trend you should have in your wardrobe. There are many types of kimonos and endless possibilities to style them which makes them fun and versatile. It can completely transform your outfit, you can wear it as a short jacket, a coat, as a dress on its own, with a bikini, a pair of jeans or shorts, or with anything else that you want. It’s also a great choice of outfit for summer festivals.

Have a look at the kimonos I picked for you below.

My kimono look

I am wearing a long printed kimono from Zara. I paired it with white jeans, a simple vest top and nude patent heeled sandals. I accessorised the look with a basket bag with sequin palm detail and long stone earrings.

What are your thoughts about the kimono trend? How would you wear it?

    I love how you have put this kimono over white jeans and matched the pattern to your bag.
    I love the green leaves on such a functional bag since it makes it a bit more cool.

    Stunning look! Love all the colors in your outfit. <3 The thing I love most about kimonos is their fabric. So versatile and soft! A lot to love about Japanese culture, and kimonos are certainly quite the fashion piece. You styled this look beautifully!

    Ach Mensch ich habe die Tasche so lange angeschmachtet,
    aber dann war sie ausverkauft. War leider nicht schnell genug. 🙂
    Aber nun zu dem Look, der wirklich ein Traum ist. Ich persönlich habe mich so über den Kimono-Trend gefreut, die sind wirklich einfach perfekt für den Sommer und du hast deinen so schön kombiniert.
    Sehr inspirierend.

    alles Liebe deine Amely Rose

    I absolutely adore that sequin basket (maybe because I have the same one!) , it’s fabulous. Gorgeous kimono (beautiful print), wouldn’t look great on me but you look stunning as always.
