Kimono’s have to be one of the most versatile pieces that I own. You can style them with jeans, shorts, dresses, etc. And since they will probably never go out of style, and they come in so many prints, designs, and lengths, it won’t hurt to stock up on more and more of them every season. As you can see below, I’m definitely practicing what I preach.
The office is one of the places where a kimono can really get it’s shine on. Mainly because a lot of us keep our office looks very simple and monochrome. The kimono is a superb way to add some color and interest to your office looks. And it’s quite simple to get the look right.
The office that I work in has a very laid back dress code. Some employees come in with a full three piece suit, while others come in with jeans and a t-shirt. It’s all over the place in there. But, because the dress code is so laid back, I can choose to get really cute some days and other days I can come in there looking like I just rolled out of bed.
Either way, sometimes it can be tough trying to decide how to look nice without doing the most. I like a little balance, ya know. So I’ve found that the kimono usually works because all I have to do is throw it on top of my outfit and I instantly look like I tried. It can be dressed up or down.
One way that I like to style my kimono by dressing up a pair of jeans and tee. The denim, white tee, kimono combo is a winning outfit formula. It gives a casual vibe that I love. If your office is like mine, you could wear the jeans, tee, and kimono look on any given day. But, if you have a more formal office, then this look may need to be reserved for casual Friday only.
Another way that you can wear a kimono is with a bodycon dress. A simple bodycon dress, topped with a kimono adds dimension and serves a purpose. It draws attention to all the right places, yet it enriches the look of your bodycon dress.

Lastly, the look that I’m wearing today includes a beautiful, exotic, and colorful floral print kimono. It’s very flowy and adds a pop of detail to this all black look. I’m sure we’ve all done the all black (or all blue or gray, etc) but if you’re looking to step it up and out, adding a kimono as beautiful as this one will do the trick.
What’s you favorite way to rock your kimonos?
