Outfit of the Day: Styling a Kimono

Share This Post

For our latest outfit of the day, I am styling a kimono-style jacket. Now, I know that this isn’t an actual Kimono, but this cut and style is called as such in stores, so I am using the term as reference and not under the delusion that it is an actual Kimono.

I have a few of these jackets, and I love the ease in which they can take an outfit to the next level.

I have a goth style on in this post, but I also have a buffalo plaid one and a navy blue one covered in stars that I pair with my super hero tees.

This Kimono is from Torrid. The shirt and shorts are from Lane Bryant. Tights are from Snag. My trusty tall boots from Forever 21. My hat is one of my faves. I got it at Target.

The key to styling this piece is balance. Make sure you pair it with things that fit close to the body- sheath dresses, pencil skirts, leggings, etc.

Another way to style this would be with a body-con dress and clunky sneakers. That would be more comfy on a hot day.

Whatever you decide, have fun with it! Kimonos are not expensive and very versitile! Click on links to shop.
