When a kimono is first mentioned, what pops into your mind probably isn’t this long, sheer, cardigan-type of clothing, unless of course you have seen one before, but indeed, Kimono jackets or cardigans are amazing.
They are perfect for warmer weather because they’re light and airy but still cover you up if you’re chilly or you just want something on your shoulders. They come in all sorts of beautiful patterns and can be worn with absolutely everything.
The kimono style can be a difficult one to pull off, because you can wear it and look like you just threw on a bathrobe or just got out of bed. It is really a tricky one, seeing a kimono jacket for the first time would have you wondering how to wear it.
Seriously, rocking the kimono now especially in this heat period pays. So, fashion divas, here are few tricks on how to rock your kimono jacket in stunning ways.
Kimonos come in two forms – full coverage (like a mini dress) or could be long also or just a shoulder cover-up (cardigan shape).
