Kimono’s are here to stay and I can’t get enough of them! They have become my new go to in place of a blazer. They add such a feminine touch to any outfit. You can wear them with a dress, jeans, shorts, skirt or a bathing suit.
Sharing a bit of history with you, did you know that the original kimono was created in China and adopted by Japan during their Heian period (794–1192 AD)? In addition, kimonos were made from fine materials and have been regarded as great works of art. Lastly,in the Western world, kimono-styled women’s jackets, similar to a casual cardigan became a hot fashion trend in 2014 and continues to be popular to this day. The colors that are available run from flowers to stripes to vibrant colors perfect for Spring & Summer!
The world of fashion never seizes to amaze me with how we borrow ideas from our past and recreate them to make it a new fashion trend! Thank you to all the fashionista’s and designers who came before us!
