Kimonos are made using a variety of materials including cotton, silk and satin and in African prints as well. A kimono can be made in different lengths and can transform any outfit into style.
Kimonos have been a fashion staple for a while now. With floral, lace, African prints and fringe varieties draped on clothings, kimonos are so easy to fall in love with. Effortless and romantic, kimonos are a wardrobe must-have.
They are suitable for both casual and evening wear (depending on the design) and can also be worn on their own as a dress instead of a separate layer of clothing. Below are some of the fabulous ways to style yourself with a Kimono:
Tucked In Tops
One of the easiest ways to wear a kimono is to choose a neutral palette which goes with black jeans and loose-fitting white top, which is casually tucked in. Paired with block or stilletto heels that perfectly match the plain chiffon kimono and your effortless look will be polished. Bare in mind to use minimal accessories too.
Wearing dark or blue jeans and a white shirt, which is very similar to the outfit above, though it's different, you can untuck your shirt and pair your African print kimono or Asian-inspired printed kimono with flat shoes, kitten heels, stilletto or mustard heels.
Also, you can opt for the same coloured inner up-and-down clothes, with a flowery or African print Kimono on top of it. A matching boots, heels or flat shoes with a long pendant will work the magic.
You can also pair a short-sleeved floral or African print kimono top with a plain easygoing black or white plain dress. It’s a great way to dress up a simple black or white dress. The length of this kimono really give it an airy, breezy look, don’t you think?
One might complain about the boots, but remember that you can also match the outfit with flat shoes, block or stillettos if you want to look more classy.
Kimonos are a perfect accessory to crop tops. They totally balance out the amount of skin shown on the midriff with the amount of skin shown on the arms. It doesn’t look too prudish, neither does it look too revealing.
The black crop top and black pants elongates your body and the printed kimono jacket ties the whole outfit together. Not only boots can complement the outfit but for a more classy look, stillettos or block heels can work the magic.
Shorts and V-neck Tops
Again, you can also use colors that are already in your printed kimono to go with your outfit. A white v-neck makes the outfit look casual and the cute pink shorts hit at exactly the same length as the kimono.
Normally, the kimono is longer than the shorts or shorter but here the short kimono totally works and even acts a lot like a blazer.
Denim Jeans and Fringed Kimono
This high waisted denim shorts with a crop top and a fringed kimono is perfect for a casual look. It will be a flawless execution if styled to perfection. The long-sleeved fringed kimono balances out how much skin is being shown in the high-waisted shorts and crop top. The hat, sunglasses, and bag are great accessories for this outfit and perfect for a casual hangout.
