And it is the perfect solution to my frequent, and infuriating, question I ask my fiance and friends: “do I need a jacket?” I tend to regret not having one when it’s cold, but can’t stand dragging around a sweater or jacket around when it’s blazing hot outside. Lucky for me, there’s my trusted kimono. It’s lighter than a jacket, but offers the same amount of coverage, but with more breathing room.
Here, I paired this fun, fringe kimono with high-waisted black denim shorts from H&M, a simple gray tank, and slipped on Toms for an easy festival-ready look.
It can pump up my most basic outfits as a statement maker, but then I’m also not afraid to slip this funky fringe over a bathing suit for a modest cover-up.
To take my day look to night, I would swap my Toms for some fringed or suede booties and layer on the necklaces, but the great thing about a kimono is that it can transform the simplest of outfits, even like a tank and shorts.
And there you have it, a super easy look that gets a style boost from a fun patterned kimono. Give it a try!
