The Summer Kimono

Kimono: TK Maxx
Tees: Primark
Shorts: DIY
Shoes: Converse
Bracelets: AlexandAni

It's the ultimate summer trend, the summer kimono is everywhere, on countless celebrities and bloggers, at countless festivals. It's equally at home at a festival, by the pool or while lounging at home. It's as easily dressed up as it is dressed down. You can buy them everywhere from River Island, boohoo, asos, to vintage stores...just everywhere you can imagine in every print/pattern you could think off. It looks amazing with fringing and without. It is the easiest piece to style, just throw it on over whatever you're wearing and your good to go. I love it with cutoffs or a simple dress and distressed boots for an effortless outfit. When your summer dresses start to look tired it's the ultimate remedy to bring them back to life and it's not bad for combating the evening breeze when the sun starts to disappear either. Okay enough rambling on about the many pluses to kimonos, let's discuss outfit details. I bagged my kimono in TK Maxx for a very reasonable €20 and I paired it with a standard warm summers day outfit; layered tees and short shorts. I actually DIY'd these shorts years ago from corduroy pink flares I kid you not, they're alot more flattering as shorts as you might imagine. What's summer trend are you dabbling in: it is the ugly flat, co-ords, mirrored sunglasses?
