How to wear a Kimono Jacket

I love Asian culture and I love kimonos. They are so pretty and elegant and flowy and the floral print is gorgeous. I’m happy they incorporated them in fashion because we can wear them!!! I got one from forever21 yesterday and I love it! A few stores I found kimonos at were asos, zara and of course forever21. I know there are more places but those are just a few. I have many outfit ideas and I am going to share them with you just in case you want to wear one.

Here is a leather bralette top from Express, crochet shorts from Express, floral garland I made, and earrings from forever21.20140104-122400.jpg

and my Jeffrey Campbells to go with that outfit. The Bohemian looks really nice with kimonos but if you don’t like the hippie style you can wear like a mini dress and some heels or wedges.20140104-122416.jpg

Or you can  wear a lingerie style dress, here is one from Zara.

You can even wear a lace dress, high-waist shorts, or jeans. Shoe wise you can do jeweled sandals or regular sandals, boots, heels or whatever you think will fit. Wear a statement necklace to bring it out more, especially if it has colors of the kimono. The only thing I think you should not do when wearing one is something that looks too busy, the main focus should be on the kimono.

Oh and jumpsuits look nice as well! Pair the outfit with some point-toe heels and dangling chandelier earrings and a cuff bracelet.

Here is a picture I got off a website of celebs wearing a kimono jacket.

Oh and they are wearable in all seasons, wear darker ones for fall/winter lighter ones for spring/summer. There is a black one I would like to buy for now until it gets warm.
