Kimono: Japanese word for clothing or “a thing to wear” and also the traditional Japanese garment worn in special occasions.
Kimonos are out in full force this summer. They come in so many shapes and patterns: long, short, printed, fringed, silky, oversized. My personal favorites are the floral printed ones.
But why is everybody (myself included) going crazy making them the hottest trend of the season?
Well, it’s above all a smart and easy way to upgrade your look. It adds a bit of glamour and color to an otherwise boring outfit. Even if you’re home, having a bad hair day wearing your ugly pj’s and throw one on you’ll instantly look fabulous. It makes you feel like you have this superpower out of nowhere, you turn into a superhero- who doesn’t love that? It’s super fresh, incredibly feminine, playful and sexy.
How to wear it: as a silky jacket with jean shorts, skirts, tank tops or over swimsuits which I think is great.
I read somewhere over the internet that “Kimonos are for Dreamers”.
Yes. We are Happy Dreamers.
What’s your superpower?
