Summer 2014 Trend: Kimonos
By: Gabriela Herstik
Happy summer everyone! As we change over into the season of heat, there is no reason for the fashionable people of the world to stop layering. Let’s be honest – layers instantly make you look like you know how to put together an outfit, and the best light layer for the summer is a kimono. The kimono has slowly transitioned its way into the fashion world and I could not be happier. A staple that should be in every fashion conscious woman’s closet, this light layer piece gives an ensemble a laid-back, bohemian vibe. Throw one on over your bathing suit or rock one with a pair of denim shorts. It’s versatile enough to wear both ways. During the summer, we need pieces that can easily be worn on the beach and then look just as trendy when we go out to eat with friends, not to mention that it should be a core part of your summer music festival wardrobe. Inspired by the beautiful fabrics and silhouettes of Japan, these garments make any look effortlessly stylish.
