I have spent many a weekend searching high and low for the perfect kimono. I tried on around 500 (maybe not that many but its was a lot) however they all seemed to make me look boxy and they bunched around my hips which is definite FAIL.Then one day my long search finally came to an end and I found what I believe is the perfect kimono for me. It has a simple line, a high-low cut and fits perfectly.

So I found the perfect kimono; now what? I have to admit, at first I found it tricky to style my kimono but after a lot of practice and waisted time, I found three ways to wear my kimono no matter what season it is.
LOOK 1. DRESSED UP FOR AN EVENING LOOK
Kimonos look great for an evening ensemble over a little black dress or with pleather pants and some bling accessories.
LOOK 2. ADD LAYERS AND LENGTH
Wearing a kimono under a crop jacket is a great way to add length and texture to a casual look..
LOOK 3. TUCKED IN
A flowy maxi skirts may not seem like the best accompaniment for a flowy kimono. To make this look work try tucking the kimono in to the skirt to synch your waist and prevent extra bulk.
MY KIMONO TIPS:
1. Choose one with a simple cut if you have hips. There are a lot of kimonos with a boxy shape that gather at the hips. This gives extra bulk to that area which is not always a desired look.
2. Keep the rest of the outfit simple with fitted pieces to keep the look flattering.
3. Don’t hide your kimono away during the colder months ,add some staple winter pieces and rock the look all year round.
With spring fast approaching now is the time to start YOUR search for the perfect kimono.
