Styling Tip: Wear a Kimono
It is funny how once you surround yourself with something it begins to rub off on you! Months will go by and I can’t get enough of one thing – maybe it is because the client I am working with and the vision I have created for her has demanded a love for all things feminine, maybe it is my travels to a fabulous location that has me channeling 60’s jetsetters, or maybe it is research I am doing for an upcoming shoot that has me loving the pretty tough attitude – it always rubs off.
So of course, when writing the Style and Age story led me to dive back into the world of Catherine Baba, my love for the kimono jacket returned with a vengeance. I have a few kimono jackets that hang in my closet and they have been making an appearance daily. The kimono instantly gives off a grand-eccentric statement.
For a little kimono styling inspiration, I went to the queen of the look – jewelry designer Kelly Framel, she makes it work over and over again, reinventing it each time.
Take a cue from Kelly and wear it loose over a simple body-con dress and add fabulous embellishments, mix two prints in the same color scheme, or cinch it in with a obi belt over a short chic dress.
Pick up a kimono jacket at a local vintage store or search etsy and ebay!
