Modern kimonos that feature bold designs and are made from silk, cotton, wool or Ankara fabric. Kimonos can also be used to punctuate outfits and provide contrast to an otherwise plain look. They can add sophistication to a casual outfit and provide the finishing touch for a dressier look.
KIMONOS AND TROUSERS
If you are wondering what to wear with a kimono, jeans are a good place to start; the options are endless when they are combined. A long kimono paired with tight denim pants is a popular look, but it can also be worn with traditional or even flared jeans. You could do this by wearing a delicate kimono over a pair of distressed jeans or adding a long kimono to an outfit that includes jeans and platform boots. They work well with jeans because they add an ‘easy thrown together’ vibe to your casual look.
KIMONOS AND DRESSES
Kimonos can add a dash of style to skirts and dresses. Short kimonos can be cinched at the waist to enhance the lines or fit and flare dresses or worn open to enhance pencil dresses. Longer styles will add glamour and sophistication to maxi dresses. Slipping into a kimono can change the look of a revealing dress or skirt from provocative to demure, and you can pair it with a sophisticated hat and delicate shoes for a sleek look.
KIMONOS AND SWIMWEAR
Kimonos started to enter the mainstream after women discovered how comfortable they are to wear at the beach or poolside. They make perfect swimsuit cover-ups because they are so easy to put on and take off. And the best part is, you can belt it for a dressier look when you need to step out or when the sun goes down.
