With Gwynnie Bee, you can try out new styles without the commitment, and we love to see our members experimenting with their style and trying something new. And that means the hottest pieces of the season! The kimono was one of our top picks for the ‘70s Boho fall trend, and we have been blown away by how much our members are loving them! We have a few tips on how to really rock the look, along with inspiration from some of our favorite member bloggers, like Kristine of Trendy Curvy (above).
At that first hint of a chill in the air, you know it’s time to start layering, and the kimono is an on-trend spin on that cardigan or jean jacket we usually reach for. This item is effortless and cozy, yet elevates any look to a more stylish version. That means that you can dress it down with jeans and tee-shirt like Allison of Curvy Girl Chic (below), or pair it with a black pants and a tank for a going out look. Jaye of Curvatude and Sarah Rae Vargas (above) look ready to hit the town!
A printed kimono is the natural focus of an outfit —play it simple with solid neutrals underneath. Go for more graphic effect by pulling out the colors of the kimono for the rest of your outfit, like Kelly Augustine (below). Try pairing it with a dress for work or play — you do not have to wear pants with a kimono! And it’s important to find the length that’s right for your body shape. Kimonos can hit anywhere from mid-hip to below the knee, and you should think about the proportion that you feel most comfortable in as you pick one to closet.
