Kimonos everyone needs

Kimonos everyone needs

Hey ya’ll! So, so sorry I’ve been MIA the last two weeks. Everything has been crazy with work, wedding planning, and my small ounce of a social life. Anyway, everything is finally settling down and I have the opportunity to sit down and get back on my blogging schedule!

Today, I want to talk about kimonos that every woman needs in her closet. I love kimonos– they can take a simple jeans and a tee look into something fun and creative, without really any effort at all! I also have taken a page from my Mom’s book, and started wearing them when I want to cover my shoulders for work or because my outfit needs a little something , and I don’t want to just throw on something boring.

There are so many types of kimonos out there right now, and here are my favorite ones that I think you need for the fall! The item is linked at the beginning of each blurb, where it reads “(blank) kimono.”

kimono, style, fashion

Enjoy, and happy shopping!

Black kimono— Everyone needs a versatile black kimono in their closet. It can pretty much be paired with anything, dressed up or down, and gives you a little shoulder coverage for when either a) it’s chilly, b) you’re at work or another professional venue where you feel like covering up a little more, or c) you just think your outfit needs something. This simple piece from ASOS is $29, has a cute lace trim and subtle side slits, so it moves with you. Perfect for the kimono newbie!

Satin kimono— Total disclosure– I found this kimono while writing this post, and ordered it immediately. I can’t help myself. The lavender satin is beautiful for a fancy dinner with your beau or a cocktail party… but, I plan on wearing it more casually too, by pairing it with a white tank and black jeans. Wear slides or booties with this, and you have achieved the ultimate cool girl vibe. It’s $78, comes in black (!!!) and, since Victoria’s Secret probably made it for this reason, can be used as a nighttime robe. Lord, please let this be at my doorstep soon.

Floral kimono— A long, pink, floral kimono is pretty much my dream. I love the length of this piece, because it seems dramatic but the overall fit keeps it breezy and perfect for a day at work (or at least, for my work!). The floral pattern on this $49 Love, Fire kimono runs down the sides near the opening, on the back, and on the sleeves, which I totally love. Florals can get real busy looking, real fast… but this simple pattern nixes that issue.

Velvet kimono– This navy, velvet baby is GORGEOUS. I love the pattern, because it looks like the night sky to me. It’s Free People, but $88 is not too bad for the brand’s quality fabric and timeless style. I don’t have this kimono, just I want it so badly! Someone add to my fashion fund!

Fringe kimono— This fringe kimono is half sexy, half elegant… which is pretty much all you can ask for, right? I love the pink paisley detailing towards the bottom, but I love how the top is sheer so you can see through to your shoulders. This would work perfectly over a black dress for date night, or over jeans and a tee shirt for a casual Saturday or drinks with your girlfriends. Also, at $17, what’s not to love? (PS if you haven’t ever used SheIn, or even heard of it, check out this post for my experience with the site!)
