I’ve always been a huge fan of the classic kimono. I find it to be incredibly chic and comfortable look to wear, styling them is effortless and I love how they help add a touch of drama to your outfit. I first spotted my new piece at a fashion show held by leading high street brand, Jigsaw. It was love at first sight and when I paid a visit to the store later that week, I was taking home a new friend. (Plus this fab fluffy pompom and delicious candle!)
I was heading out for a family dinner on Saturday night so I wanted to wear something casual yet chic. I paired my kimono with another Jigsaw piece, a grey tee and my khaki green trousers from River Island. I usually wear quite bright looks so it’s a nice change to opt for more neutral tones.
I love the complimentary cocoon-shape, it falls so effortlessly with a relaxed fit and wide style sleeves. It is a beautiful pure silk fabric with an exotic statement floral print, the perfect ensemble. When wearing a piece like this, I would recommend pairing it with a simple outfit so that your kimono makes a bold statement.
When it came to my accessories, I decided to stick with the natural look so I wore my Tom & Eva tote and rose gold gladiator sandals from Office. I was designated driver and driving in heels is my idea of hell.
Happy Monday, lovelies. I’ve an exciting beauty post coming this week featuring a product that I have been dying to get my hands on for a while now so stay tuned!
