How I Style: Kimonos

Hey guys! Hope you're all well. Today I'm going to be showing you some quick ways that I would style two kimonos during the daytime and two for nights out. Kimonos are so versatile and easy to wear for all occasions, so I hope this gives you some kind of inspiration!

Day Outfit 1

Kimono - Topshop
Playsuit - Topshop
Bag - Topshop
Shoes - As Before

Both of these kimonos are so light; perfect for daytime in the summer. They are ideal for adding a bit of texture and a little interest to what would be relatively plain outfits. 
I love the longline style of the first (and at only £15, you really can't go wrong!) especially paired with this jersey playsuit from Topshop. I'm definitely going to get this in more colours, it's comfortable enough to sleep in! I also think the subtle floral print and fringing of the second one would go with anything and everything. It's ideal for the beach, too!

Kimonos are one of my favourite things to wear on a night out. I'm not often one to bare shoulders and arms, so they're a perfect lightwear throw on. The first one I've had for about three years and it had seen numerous nights out, along with many compliments. It has such an array of colours in it that it's easy to pair with almost anything.
The second is a relatively new addition. It's pretty much completely see-through, but has beautifully embroidered flowers over it. It was quite expensive, but I think it looks way more expensive than it was. The fringing also adds a little bit of fun to the outfit.
For you eagle eyed viewers, you'd be right in thinking that my heels in the last photos are the same but different colours... I just love them so so much!

I hope this post has been helpful in some way for you all. Kimonos seem to be absolutely everywhere at the moment and if you're thinking of getting one I'd highly recommend giving it a try. They're much more practical than a cardigan in the summer, and if you get to hot in even these ones, you can take them off and throw them in your bag! They're crease proof!
