Inspired by traditional Japanese robes, kimonos are available in stores today with an ultra-modern update. You’ll find them in varying prints and lengths; which can give any outfit a ‘put-together’ look. This easy to throw-on piece makes an ensemble look effortlessly stylish.
A kimono is a handy piece to own for those days where you waste countless hours in front of the mirror, not knowing what to wear. Check out the carefully curated collection at PostFold if you’re looking to buy a kimono dress and other contemporary styles. Below are a few ways you can style the kimono:
The Feminine Look
For a feminine look, pair a plain tank top and skirt of the length of your choice with a colorful kimono. Layer a few necklaces if heading out and wear espadrilles as footwear to take the outfit up a notch. To add a bohemian touch, wear your hair in an intricate milkmaid braid. This look will work well if you’re heading out with a few of your girlfriends to grab brunch. Keep in mind to opt for a longer kimono with a short skirt and vice-versa. If you don’t want to go through the hassle of choosing skirts, go for a kimono sleeve dress instead for a similar look.
The Power Dresser
If you have a kimono that resembles a blazer in your wardrobe, then here’s your chance to use it to put together an outfit for work. You can give your regular work outfit a stylish twist by donning your kimono. All you need to do is belt the kimono at the waist over the formal shirt and trousers you usually wear to work. This is an easy hack all office goers must know for a completely different silhouette.
The Playful Spin
A jumpsuit is a great wardrobe essential to have and looks great by itself. It is a comfortable and stylish piece that one should definitely own. However, if you’re bored of the ones lying in your wardrobe, you can elevate it with the help of a kimono. Opt for a bright kimono with a muted jumpsuit like this one in denim by PostFold. Pair sneakers with the outfit for a hint of playfulness and wear your hair in a ponytail. Steer clear of heavy accessories for this look.
The Model-Chic Look
If you want that off-duty model look, we are here to help you achieve that. A shift dress or tunic like this one below from PostFold can serve as your first layer. For the second layer, opt for a kimono and don’t hesitate to mix prints while you do so. Pair the outfit with nude pumps to complete the look. If you’re not afraid to experiment, wearing jeans below the tunic will give you an edgier look without trying too hard. This outfit is all about layering.
