The Kimono Trend

With summer right around the corner and the heat wave already rolling in, I have been looking at some new ways on how to stay cool but not have to show off too much skin. The kimono has been a trend that has been growing for sometime. Again, it was something I never thought I would look good in, and thought long and hard about how and what I would pair it with. Searching for the right kimono was another challenge on its own. With so many out there, styles, looks, prints, it can become a little overwhelming. The one I have been wearing was a gift from my dad. He does a lot of traveling, and on one of his trips to Latin America he brought me back this beautiful kimono. My dad knows me so well, not only did he bring me one, he brought me four back to pick and choose from! :P I went with the black and red floral print. I figured it would be an easier colour to pair with, and the print isn't taking over. For me, it was perfect.

I paired it with my fave pair of skinny jeans, a loose fitting white tank, and some slouchy peep toe ankle booties. Kept it simple, and neat. A super easy look to easily copy. How would you pull off this look?
