Trend Posting- The kimono and how to wear it

kimono-street-style-cannes

Starting the week with a cool Spring Summer 2014 fashion trend, the kimono robe and some practical styling tips. You must have seen celebrities pulling it off with style in paparazzi shots and stylish fashion bloggers sporting it at the Coachella music festival. But the challenge is how to incorporate it with style in your everyday outfits around town.

The traditional Japanese piece, usually ankle length was historically worn for special occasions and is given the Western edge with a shorter length and such a variety of patterns and colors.

Weather you choose a short version of the kimono which makes it easier to style and works with most body shapes and heights, the long one definitely makes a stronger fashion statement and is my favorite. If you are not that tall you can always wear a pair of stylish high heels.

1. Wear a floral kimono with slim boyfriend distressed jeans and high heels like Aimee Song from Song of Style (The kimono is by Athena Procopiou)
