I appreciate a well done Kimono, they are chic, versatile and of course, timeless. Depending upon the textile, they can also be worn year around. What is there not to love about a great Kimono? As you know from a previous post, Rabens Saloner is one of my favourite designers, producing some of the most beautiful Kimonos I’ve seen.
The one featured here coaxed me with it’s dark, rich, drapery textile, subtle tie dye and detailed beading. It took mere seconds for me to scan my wardrobe for all the possibilities and they are endless. Since there are only so many hours in a day; I decided to settle on the one I’d probably rock most.
Denim is quintessential LA…we love it no matter the occasion. Paired with this cozy Acne tee, and skinny Rag and Bone jeans in distressed blue, this look will flow seamlessly from day to evening.
By day a flat sandal is perfect, and by night, a great bootie or stiletto pump for dress up. The beading coupled with the tie dye makes this particular Kimono a statement piece, which is why I would accessorize very little. A dainty necklace and stud earrings would complete this look and prevent it from being too busy.
As stated, the possibilities truly are endless, it works great over a little black dress, shorts, a slip dress with the kimono cinched at the waist. I’m super excited to don this new addition to my wardrobe, and encourage you to grab a staple Kimono to add a touch of flavour to yours.
A bit of flavour never goes out of style!
