Hey guys,it’s post tiimeeeeeeeee!
On today’s post ,I’ll be sharing two easy ways to style a kimono!. I’ll start by explaining what a KIMONO is…a KIMONO is a Japanese cultural clothing made from variety of fabrics. They often come long,short or in midi lengths.They are also made to be fitted,loose or over-sized to be appropriate for any look you want to pull off. Now lets get into #therarebeing kimono styling
1 Drap a Kimono Over Your Shoulder
Look who jumped on the corset and biker shorts trend…why waste some naira when I can make good use of my razor and scissors. I cut my black jeans into a biker shorts and paired it with an orange corset inspired top. I complemented this look with a pair of Hanah mules from my brand(Porafantasia),a white structured bag to go with it and of course a brown vintage shades to add extra spice to the look.Now,the kimono comes in to finish up this look like a boss
I simply draped/wore the kimono over my shoulders and boom,this Enugu baby girl switched up real quick
2 Wrap a Kimono Round Your Body(using a belt over it)
For this look,all I did was to wear the kimono appropriately,then wrap the right part of it to the left side of my body and brought the left part towards the right side of my body to cover it up. I used a bold brown vintage belt on it to prevent it from opening and of course to ascentuate/define my waist. I used same accessories for it as seen in look 1 except for the monochrome shades I used here to complement the look…now there you go, kimono turned wrap dress(ooooouuuuuuuu…)…
No outfit is ever complete without an accessory
I chose these accessories to blend in with my color scheme.please note that your color scheme for every outfit should be considered while choosing your accessories….
1 For an easy casual look,go ahead and pair your kimono effortlessly with a chic slippers,sandals or sneakers.
2 Talk about biker shorts then think blazer jacket or a moderately oversized polo tucked in slightly in front to give it a lil chic twist..
The corset and biker short trends are one of the fashion trends to try out before 2019 ends if you’re yet to…
That’s all for these looks guys,hope you like it
