Kimonos

Friday, May 30, 2014

Lately I have seen kimonos make an appearance just about every where. When I first saw these kimonos I assumed they were just wide sleeved cardigans, however I was sadly mistaken. To me kimonos are the perfect touch to an outfit when you're going for a laid back look. Throw this on over anything you achieve a boho-chic look. Something about them reminds me of festival season.

For all you DIYers out there check out Elle Apparel's post on how to make your own kimono. See how she made her very own [picture above]. Super easy, super cute, and super stylish!

Have a lovely day and a fabulous weekend!

  5. we're absolutely loving the kimono trend, especially for the warmer months. It's getting cooler in AUstralia at the moment, so we might have to try and work out how to style them for the cooler months. A nice kimono can be pricey too, so we may have to try out that DIY!!

  6. Kimonos are so great in turning a plain outfit from shab to chic! I think for the summer they're an absolute must haves :)
