OOTD Monochrome Kimono


2014 has definitely been the year for the kimono fashion trend. I started seeing colorful kimonos in stores and in magazines earlier this spring, just in time for music festival season. The trend lasted all summer, and is now transitioning into the fall season. I love the look of kimonos. They are so effortless and can be worn so many different ways. I've seen them worn over swimsuits, with denim shorts & crop tops, paired with boyfriend jeans, over skater dresses, and with leggings.


I bought this kimono on sale at Burlington Coat Factory a couple of months ago, but I never found an occasion to wear it. Today, I paired it with a basic black 3/4 sleeve top, black leggings, and some western-style booties. For accessories, I wore my usual sterling silver rings from Silpada, and a couple turquoise pieces including a ring from Zulily, and a vintage bracelet from my aunt.
