4 Ways to Wear: The Kimono

What other way can I describe a kimono besides a free flowy and airy "summer coat"? I fell in love with kimonos earlier this year and after seeing these outfit sets I styled a kimono with, I hope you do too. Besides my beach cover-up, I don't quite have a kimono for daily day wear but if I was to buy a kimono, it would be in a nice floral print in vibrant colors.

Below are 4 possible ways of styling a kimono.

Casual: This is an outfit that certainly resonates well with ladies who classify themselves as boho chic. The entire look on its own is a Street Style Special and you're definitely getting a head start for fall with the brown booties. For day, wear the kimono and for night time, rip take the kimono off.

Casual Chic Ramp up your look with this romper (see what I did there?). A basic all black outfit is the perfect canvass for a print kimono. Keep jewelry to a minimum. In this set, I used a double stranded silver necklace so the first layer sits right on the neckline of this romper for an alluring effect if you would. A body chain can also do the job; it's just not as subtle.

On my Instagram page, I got some criticism on this but truly, this is for the daring woman who isn't confined by rules. Finish this look with some jewelry, a gold clutch and red pumps. Done!

Orange and yellow are basically the golden colors of summer. Why sink into the shadows? Stand out! This outfit is appropriate for running errands or just a fun day on the town. The shoulder straw bag and chunky heels are a perfect addition for this summer outfit.
