-AFTER KIMONO COATS COME KIMONO DRESSES-
We’ve been on board with the kimono trend from the very beginning. It’s been around for a while now, but we never get tired of it. But after a while we needed a bit of a change. We wanted to let the kimono coat evolve into a kimono dress. Because that’s a bit easier to wear in the next upcoming Fall season, especially underneath a fur coat. Sofie’s fully on board with this trend, so let her tell you what you need to keep in mind while choosing the right kimono dress and how to style it, like this one from Rixo London.
1 / ANKLE LENGTH WITH A SIDE OF SLITS
The ankle length is without a doubt the nr. one fit for the upcoming season (and spotted a lot on the SS18 NYFW runways too!), but if you’re anxious to end up with a granny effect, just make sure to go with a piece that has little slits on the sides, such as this one by Rixo that I fell instantly in love with.. It will make moving around so much easier, and will let the fluent fabric (another aspect of the kimono that I so adore!) move around freely so that it’s flattering for your body in every way.
2 / POPS OF COLOUR, PLEASE
If you want to update any look for a new season, just add some accessories in on trend shades, such as a mustard triangle bag (literally goes with everything!), matching sunnies, and a big golden statement ring. Perfect to keep your sunny mood alive too, even on those dreary pre-Fall days. 🙂
3 / V-SHAPED SHOES
Apart from strategic slits, pointy V-shaped slingbacks are a great way to make a maxi piece more sexy. And for those who are all about the details, a little anklet to finish it off never hurt anyone either!
Are you still loving the kimono trend as much as we do? Then shop this dress right away!
