I love kimonos for a multitude of reasons. I struggle with layering in the summer and they’re an awesome pice to toss on over tanks, crops, or dresses when you want to feel more covered up or are working in a chilly office. Kimonos also make great beach coverups and can instantly dress up a more basic outfit. If I was comfortable enough to wear bodycon dresses, I would totally style this over a plain black or nude one! I can also see myself wearing this over a bodysuit and highwaisted shorts or jeans for a concert. I’m going to a wedding this weekend and the ceremony is at the Holy Rosary Church, so I’m even considering wearing it as a wrap inside the church!
Since this kimono is on the longer side, I paired it with chunky heeled sandals to help my legs look longer for an impromptu happy hour with a coworker. (If you haven’t been to Chaplins for their highballs, you must go. I love the Vegabond!) I love pairing kimonos with crop tops because it helps make them a little more modest, and if you eat a lot at happy hour you can pull it around you to help cover up more!
This particular kimono is “one size fits all” and I typically wear a small, so it was a bit big, but that just meant more room for twirling around in it!
