The Clever Kimono
The Kimono is a key trend for Summer 2014 and this show-stopping Carmen Kimono satin-look jacket from Instant Vintage, Bath, is a great example. Here, I’m wearing a flattering wrap style black jersey dress, which compliments all body shapes. I’ve added the Kimono and layered on strands of wonderful pearl and crystal necklaces and bracelets to push the bohemian look. Instant Vintage specialises in vintage style jewellery and with prices starting at around £10, you can afford to splash out and pick up several pieces in one hit. All ages will feel glamorous and relaxed in this Theatrical Throw On Look; you can show off your legs to full effect but if you’re feeling a little body conscious the Kimono nicely covers up your arms and bottom yet still gives a great, sleek silhouette. High heels and a satin bag complete the look.
Because of the Kimono's loose shape it's important that you wear fitted, simple items underneath. Kimono’s look fab with skinny jeans and can be thrown on as you would a summer jacket. But for this evening look here’s a new trick - wear the Carmen Kimono back to front! I’ve turned the Kimono jacket around, tied it with this lovely wide Obi belt in pewter and created a completely different outfit. This is an elegant, stylish look. The neck is very high so avoid a necklace but instead throw on some great statement earrings and bracelet. Tied this way, the Kimono jacket crosses over at the back to give a gentle V shape and a subtle but sexy glimpse of skin. I’d wear this Modern Oriental outfit for cocktails with the girls. The Kimono is the perfect replacement for your old pashmina or cardigan on a summer evening. Instant Vintage for an Instant Hit.
