Trend Alert: Kimonos

Kimonos seem to be in every store and magazine these days. These highly versatile pieces are an easy way to dress up an outfit or as simple bathing suit cover up.

The kimono trend is based on the Japanese traditional garment. The word Kimono literally means “thing to wear ”. This "thing to wear" has hit the industry by storm!  From lace, to tribal print, to floral, kimonos are great way to switch up your wardrobe.

Printed kimonos are quick way to take a basic plain tee and jeans and turn it into a completely different outfit! Quick tip: when layer kimonos over outfits; keep the volume with the kimono only. Stick to fitted tops and bodices to avoid overwhelming your figure in layers and layers of fabric!

As we mentioned earlier, Kimonos make a great beach cover up. Head to the sand by adding a kimono over your bathing suit for an ultra glam outfit. 
Another great way to layer with kimonos? Over your fave maxi! Dress up a maxi with new kimono for a completely reworked look
