The little black dress meets the little black...kimono? When it comes to dressing to impress, this might not be the first item that comes to mind, but this new trend is gaining momentum. Meet the new generation of kimono 2.0's and me show you how to accessorise it:
Before I begin, let me ask you this: what's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of kimonos? Most likely something quite traditional and not so appropriate for a stroll down Fifth Avenue, the Champs Elysees, or the Passig de Gracia, right? Wrong!
One of the season's biggest trends is something I found on my travels to Japan, & I thought I'd share to keep you in-the-know: the kimono.
I found this black one really captivating, so to enhance its enigmatic aesthetic I chose to style it with black shorts and a tee paired with my red MCM sweetheart for a striking pop-of-colour.
Playing with contrasts of course I picked black and white heels for added intrigue. Hope you like it.
Every girl-on-the-go knows it's always good to be prepared - since you never know what the day will bring I recommend choosing a sophisticated day-to-evening bag that doesn't look the part but definitely plays it. Make sure your daytime-to-dinner arm candy companion speaks quality and 'luxe (without compromising style - that's very important!)
That's why I chose MCM's SS14 Shopper Project - its robust colour not only makes first impressions unforgettable, but its full leather construction turns durable into decadent and insures long-lasting style without looking worn or weathered. Against black (like my kimono), it rounds off outfits to perfection!
