Kimonos are very versatile working as a lightweight cover up or longer versions can be belted as a dress -it can replace a staple cardigan and look fresher and modern as well as being comfortable to wear.

Any body shape or size can wear the look and it is an easy and stylish way to update an outfit – to wear it right team with slimmer wardrobe items so as not to look too boxy.

They are easily mixed and matched with many items from jeans & tee shirts to the little black dress but stick to a slim silhouette underneath – skinny jeans, shift dress or pencil skirt.

To obtain most impact from your kimono keep to a solid colour column which also slenderises  or co-ordinate with top and wear over jeans. For warmers days go for a boho look with shorts and statement jewelry.

If you prefer plain colours, you can still address the kimono trend by looking for the clean shape and silhouette in a jacket which can be worn in the office or evening.

Whether your look is girly, edgy or anything inbetween you will find a jacket to suit.
