Our new obsession is the Kimono!
You can never go wrong with a Kimono. Layer one over jeans and t-shirt and ta-da! – you've got a fresh, personalised look. Want to dress it up? Add a statement heel, some jewels and a clutch. Would you rather dress it down? Try shorts with sneaker.. See, when it comes to the Kimono's, the outfitting possibilities are endless.
Here are a few things some of our customers are saying about the Kimono: A Kimono can be worn in so many different ways! They're so easy and flattering! We love how effortless the silhouette looks on all body types.
Now that we've got your attention, you're probably wondering – how do I wear a kimono? Here are five easy-pretty ways our employees styled this ever-versatile piece, from dressy to casual to feminine.
We asked our fellow creative entrepreneur and ex-stylist – Samantha Chrysanthou, to take our Paisley Kiki Kimono out on the town and show us how she loves to wear her Kimono.
5 Ways to Casually Style your Kiki Kimono (with items you have in your wardrobe right now!)
- Top to Bottom Neutrals
Let your Kiki Kimono do the talking with head-to-ankle neutrals. Sam has used white-on-white for her look but if you prefer to wearing beige, khaki or navy – either will work really well with this paisley print. Next accessorise with a simple jewellery pieces and a statement bag - if it’s that kind of outing!
- Khaki Flair
If you’re an Amy Pleated Pants fan – like Sam, this casual look will be a total winner. Cool and comfortable, the Kiki Kimono just adds a splash of detail! The wide-legged pleated pants and easy wearing Kimono make for a casual look that’s super relaxed and Farmer’s Market ready!
- Daytime Denim
Grab your favourite pair of denims, a casual t-shirt and throw on the Kiki Kimono for that extra something special! Tie your Kimono up in the front but leave slightly pulled apart, so that you’re still showing some shape with them fitted jeans! Or wear it open (with a loose knot at the back) for a more relaxed feel.
- Partnered with Pattern
Choose to be bold and team your Kiki Kimono up with something patterned. The trick is to stick to colours that work together so that even though the patterns are contrasting – there is still a sense of unity. Play around with a few patterned contrasts and see what works best for you.
- Shorts and Sweet
Enjoy those hot Summer days in style. Pull out your favourite pair of shorts and sneakers and pair with a simple cami and let your Kiki Kimono bring the whole look together. Play around with lengths and styles and top off with a sun hat and shades - for a casual (virgin) sundowner look, that feels fun yet natural.
Styling Tip from Sam Truly:
‘Play around with what you currently have in your wardrobe and build little looks from there. Whenever I get a new piece of clothing the first thing I do is see how many ways I can wear it. This cute Kimono has endless styling tricks up it's sleeves – you just have to play.’ - Images By Captive Photo
