Max out that Kimono Maxi Kimono Style
It is Kimono season again! In 2018 the newest style is a duster length Kimono. The stylists are calling it the Maxi Kimono. The long length adds more drama to the piece. The look pairs well with shorts, over a graphic tee, and dresses. For being a statement piece, I actually find it very versatile.
I often hear that the length makes petit people feel like they are too short. In that case, don't do full maxi length, shoot for a semi-maxi kimono that hits at the calf. You will still be able to obtain a striking look, without feeling like you are swimming in fabric.
This is my go to style all summer. I take a graphic tank, and dress it up with a kimono. Now the longer style will appear even more dramatic. Something about layering a fancier piece over a simpler piece makes for casual elegance that looks wonderful on many body types.
Ournewest one is in this years color of the season: Mauve. I dig how they added the embroidery in the pale pink and almost peachy colors. The leaves have the darker green and sage embroidery colors, bringing in richness to the palette.
I really enjoyed styling it with the mint and blush pick colored Sutton Anne Dress. Adding a piece of our tassel jewelry gave it such a boho chic vibe that is very wearable. Spring colors are blooming at Nuance Style House!
Another very popular longer kimono has been the lace style. It can be worn easily over dresses and tops as well. Here I chose our Walk in the Garden Dress, and layered over the black.
When shopping for a new style, remember that on the hanger, and on a body can look completely different. Try on several styles, and sizes before ruling out a new trend. You will be surprised on what looks really so fit you. Styling clothing should be fun, not stressful. Take a few risks, that are in budget, and watch your style confidence grow like spring flowers!
Wear it with some depressed denim and the simple tank you already have in your closet. It adds the trendy style you crave, while not adding a high cost or too much warmth.
How ever you choose to Kimono, throwing one of these beauties on, will be a stylish way to Spring and Summer.
Happy Spring Lovelies!
