I was inspired by the kimono on my last trip to Japan. When I traveled to Tokyo last year with my boyfriend, the city blew my mind. I haven’t seen anything like it, even though I’ve travelled to many other major cities.
The culture, architecture, food, and people, were so different than anything I have seen or experienced. Japanese fashion is more traditional, trendy and very different from North America or Europe. I did fall in love with their traditional kimono and I even bought one as a robe to wear around the house. Shockingly kimonos are still new to street style as a big trend, they are a fashion hit and are seen everywhere, and almost all the major retail stores now carry them. I was looking for a light trench coat for the spring season, and I saw this amazing kimono floral piece at H&M. I couldn’t resist and had to purchase it, and was happy that it didn’t break my wallet. It is the perfect piece for a bohemian chic look, or sophisticated cover up, like this outfit. It just adds some femininity to even a simple matching set or a boring dress. The soft pastel colors against the black is very striking and chic. For this outfit I paired it with this inexpensive two piece black pant & crop-top that I bought online few months ago and of course my favorite Louboutin stilettos. It turned out to be one of my favorite outfits for the spring season.
Would you consider wearing a kimono for this spring?
Thanks for reading!
