Long time no Fashion Friday! Today I’m bringing you the latest trend under my fashion radar, the Kimono. Or should I say the modern kimono? I’m not really a trends follower, I wear whatever appeals to me and I’m a firm believer in comfort over anything else. Buuuut one trend that I’ve been loving and embracing is definitely the modern Kimono.
I feel that it can liven up any plain outfit and its such a great cover up for that late afternoon transition into night time. There’s so many takes on the style of the modern kimono but I’m besotted with the fringed kimono. I think it gives the garment more character and flow. If that even makes sense.
I bought mine at a store in Gatesville and decided that I might as well buy 3 because I loved them so much. They quite airy which is perfect for summer and replaced my usual cardigan that I would wear in summer. Let’s face it, a cardigan is not ideal summer apparel because Cape Town summers can get cray cray hot. I think as this trend dies out and I’m over the kimono, I’m probably going to cut the tassels off.
I was doing some price comparison on the net and found some beautiful kimonos for all price brackets. You know some lower priced ones from Mr Price for those on a budget like me, then a middle price bracket for those that have a few pennies to spare and then the higher end ones for those darlings that wants to go the whole nine yards and spoil themselves a lil. Here are a few of my top picks currently in stores:
Ending my first Fashion Friday for the year, I picked my favourite celebrities on the net that rocked their kimono the best. I love their choice of kimono and styling. So summer appropriate and on point. What’s your take on the kimono. Yay or Nay?
Yay on some Nay on some
Hmmmm, which is your kimono of choice? 😉
I like the teal one! But what I really meant is sometimes a kimono can really make your outfit:)
Love it. Got a great fringed one at Zara.
Def my kinda girl. I’m a huge fan of Kimonos!
Have to agree. Fringed kimonos are better. Your finds look great
