3 WAYS TO WEAR A KIMONO

Happy Friday Eve! I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far. I have been running around getting the kids ready for back to school.  Summer breaks seem like they just keep getting shorter. Either that or they just go by more quickly! Who knows!?  Anyhow, I found the cutest kimono that is so on trend.  The one I found is the best style and cut and I figured out three different ways to wear it to make it look fresh and different! I am so excited to share it with you girls! Take a look below to see the three ways I styled it!

The Classic Kimono styling



The tried and true classic kimono. This one is obvious I know but Kimonos, in my opinion are one of the best closet staples you can get. They are so versatile and go with jeans of any color, shorts of any kind, dresses both short and long and can be used as swim cover ups. Some can even be used as scarves. They are one of those pieces that fits in almost every scenario and are great for traveling. Not only do they take up no space in your suitcase but they fold up so small you can keep them in your purse and use it as a blanket while on a plane.  So in my opinion you really get the most for your money with these beauties.

Front tie or knot


The second way, I can’t even get over how cute it is. It can be worn sort of in two ways within this style depending on how tight you tie it in front. One way almost actually looks like a dress if you tie it up tight. To me this is the perfect way to wear it as a swim cover. Think going into the sit down restaurant by the pool at your vacation resort. You don’t want to go get in clothes but you also don’t want to walk into and sit in your swimsuit so this is perfect. Also, it would be so cute with leggings and a tank too. If you tie it a little looser then you get a different feel. Just play around with the front two pieces to see how it feels with the rest of the pieces you pair it with. Also, I love the sleeve length on this one it’s perfect!

Tucked in criss-cross top 






 

In order to make this last way work, you will need to wear pants, shorts or leggings because you need to be able to tuck it in. It’s super easy, you just pull the right front panel of the kimono across your waist and tuck it right behind where your belt loop would be on the left side and tuck it in. For the left side cross it over and tuck it into the right side of your pants. Then adjust everything accordingly until it looks right. This kind of gives you a wrap look. If you really wanted to you can tuck in the back panel too then it will fully look like a blouse!

This is actually a scarf but is large enough that it works so good as a shawl/wrap too! I paired it with denim jeans and these super cute booties from Sole Society. They are really cute and so comfortable. You can just pull them on because they have elastic siding which is such a time saver. Plus, they are  little metallic too which is a fun touch. I also added in this grey mini tote. It’s the perfect size and can be worn by the handles or crossbody!
