OOTD – Kimono

Good morning stylish ladies,

do you like kimonos? I do, but I own only one at the moment, because I’m getting familiar with the different styling options it can fit into.

Today you see me rocking it with denim shorts and a cotton tee, high heels to give it some edge. I’m quite pleased with this look, though I’m planning to exploit all the fashion potential of this garment very soon.

Cotton t-shirt, Pomarance.name via Pashionvictim (Buy HERE)
Abstract print kimono, Asos
Denim shorts, H&M
Platform sandals, Cinti
Wraparound sunnies, Tod’s

Do YOU own a kimono? How do you wear it?

I would love to hear your styling proposals!

For my Italian friends: if you fancy hearing my ramblings, next Wednesday (June 18th) at 14.30 my interview with SOS Fashion will go live on www.rv1.it web radio.

Thank you for being here, always

    I love kimonos a lo! I have had a light floral one for couple of years, and want to get a new longer one with fringes! Asos has a great selection of these, and love the one you are wearing here!<br /><br />Hope you have a good start of the week!<br /><br /><br /><a href="http://jeansandroses.blogspot.com&quot; rel="nofollow">http://jeansandroses.blogspot.com </a>

    I really like how kimonos look on other people (such as yourself) and I think I like the idea of a kimono but I don&#39;t like how they look on me – I think I just need to find one that fits me better but until then I&#39;ll watch this trend from afar. Love how you styled yours! Kimonos with shorts reminds me of music festivals and a generally cool atmosphere. You look beautiful!<br /><br />xo

    I really like kimonos as they&#39;re such a great way of keeping the chill away on summer evenings, they&#39;re nice and light but they cover your arms which is ideal when the night draws out. I only have one kimono and it&#39;s a silk dressing gown – does that count?
