How To Wear a Kimono And Not Look Like A Fortune Teller
Of all the wraps, cover ups, and shawls, the kimono has got to be the best. The flowy fabrics and detailed embroidery of the modern kimono is made for balmy summer nights or a sunny day at the pool. If done right, you look so effortlessly chic, but when done wrong you look like you are hitchhiking to Woodstock (and not in a good way).
Here are three tips to wear this summer staple:
You want your kimono to pop, so keep everything else simple. For an evening look, go for an all black ensemble with a bright clutch or shoe.
Go Easy on the Jewelry
You do not want to be mistaken for a Stevie Nicks at dinner, so choose one statement necklace or a statement earring - never both. If you must layer, try simple earrings and bangles.
Keep the Beauty Light
Kimonos are about easy breeze, so style your hair and makeup in the same way. Soft waves or fun curls are best for hair, and stick with natural shades for eyes and lips.
