Find out how you can fully utilise your kimono jacket/cardigan.
When I first heard of kimono jackets in the fashion trend, I immediately imagined the traditional Japanese garment. Despite the confused name, it is nothing like a Japanese Kimono. I'm talking about one of summer’s most popular trends – a medium/long, sheer, cardigan-type piece of clothing. They’re light and airy, a perfect layering piece for the summer. Let me share with you 2 different ways a Kimono can be worn, making full use of your kimono.
1. Tie your kimono
Tying your kimono gives you a fun and refreshing look. Grab both end of the kimono and tie it right on your stomach. You can either tie it the way I did or ribbon-tie it or anything, really. Its up to your liking. This way of wearing a kimono looks good on dresses too. Experiment it with other clothing piece!
2. Wrap it around your waist, creating a skirt.
Another way of using a kimono is by turning it into a skirt as a bottom layering piece. You simply need to wrap your kimono around your waist and tuck the end into your pants so it doesn't fall off. This kimono's version of layering works on both shorts and long jeans/leggings. I especially love layering it over a bikini bottom to give extra coverage.
