Kimonos have been a long time favorite of mine as I have shown them in my Waves of Attire: Rolling Boutique, Sporty Boho, and Springing: Inspired by Interior Design posts to name a few. I have always loved the flowy, ethereal look that they give. Now when I saw this embroidered chambray kimono with raw edge details, I was intrigued. The loose fit cut is boxy just like a kimono, but has the more structured vibe of a jacket. Ever since I tried my first Denim on Denim look a few weeks ago, I have been wanting to go for it again, and I thought this chambray kimono was my perfect opportunity to do it with.
Since the kimono has a lighter wash, I opted for a darker wash skinny jean for my bottoms. A silver tank peeking out underneath gives a great sheen. Because I wanted a more streamlined look, I chose to belt the kimono with a skinny braided belt. A simple gold three quarter circle pendant necklace gives a modern feel to this outfit as well as the clutch that resembles a gemstone with its 3D effect. I wanted my hair to be big and full like a lion mane so I teased it up more more volume. Unfortunately, with the humidity being so high, it started to fall flat by the time I finished taking pictures.
I am looking forward to styling this chambray kimono in other ways such as over a long sleeve hunter green tee, over a slender t-shirt dress, and paired with a pencil skirt.
Are you in to wearing kimonos? What style of them do you prefer?
