I was contacted by online clothing brand Chiara Fashion* to take part in their Kimono Style Challenge whereby I had to use one of their Kimono's in 3 different outfits. I chose to do a evening oufit, a festival outfit and a beach outfit. Here is how I styled them.
Outfit 1 - Evening/Going out
|Kimono www.chiarafashion.co.uk/retro-floral-print-fringe-chiffon-kimono-in-orange.html £9.95|
Top - Miss Pap
Jeans - H&M
Heels - New Look (old)
I would wear this outfit for drinks out at a bar. I think jeans and heels always look classy together, the lace crop top shows quite a bit of skin so its nicely counter balanced by the kimono. Its nice to cover up a little bit in the evenings but sometimes you don't want to ruin an outfit by throwing on a cardigan. The kimono feels comfortable yet stylish and is still very light. I love how the rest of the outfit is quite plain but you then have a big splash of colour over the top.
Outfit 2 - Festival
|Headband - Primark|
Top - Topshop
Shorts - Miss Guided (old)
Wellies - Hunters
Outfit 3 - Beach/By the pool
|Swimsuit - Forever 21 (last season)|
Shorts - as above
Sandals - New Look
