3 Reasons Why We Love Kimonos
Posted on 27 June 2018
In the world of modest fashion, it seems like every now and again, some trends come along that are made just for you. Kimonos are the must-have, Japanese-inspired fashion item of the season. Besides looking great no matter your body type, they are long, flowy, elegant and when worn the right way, can make any outfit look chic and feminine in no time! Today on Zeena Uncovered, we’re sharing how to wear a kimono for a casual or professional look...and all the reasons why you should love them as much as we do!
Reason #1 - Kimonos are a light and airy alternative to wearing a long sweater or cardigan when in need of a little coverage. To style them, think of your kimono as outerwear – like a jacket or vest. Don’t plan your outfit around it...slip it on last, as an accessory. This gives you the freedom to wear it multiple times in different ways without worrying about being matchy-matchy. We adore the lace design our Sheer Lace Kimono and all the pretty, embroidered details it adds to Bayan's monochrome style.
Reason #3 - At the office, kimonos are a quick and easy way to make your professional attire that much more dressy. For obvious reasons, we love how loose and fluttery a kimono can be...but if you need a little more structure, wear a belt around the outside to hold everything together. Even though Bayan is wearing our Velvet Kimono, you can still achieve the same goal by sticking to neutrals or choosing solids for the color scheme of your base. Keeping things simple will make your kimono work-appropriate and chic!
