Mixing the Elements of Your Closet: Dressy with Casual

I recently saw on Instagram a girl wearing a kimono over a sweater and I was instantly inspired. I love mixing elements of my closet to create looks that wouldn’t necessarily make sense if you wrote them down, but put them on and somehow this casual dressy mix really works; ie the kimono sweater combo. Of course depending on your lifestyle, job etc it’s not as easy to wear a sweater to work, but I would say this is perfect weekend wear. Off to brunch? Don’t want to look like a total slob but you’ve worked hard all week and feel lazy? Well girl keep that sweater on and find a cute kimono to layer on top for some added class and style. Your outfit will go from couch potato to breakfast hash brown appropriate in a second.

Honestly I think Kimonos are a super cool way to dress up any outfit and are super handy to have in your closet. I wear mine when I’m going out with jeans and a plain tank top and it’s given me that confidence I need to feel going out ‘apro-pros’. Getting a legit kimono can be harder to come by, I suggest vintage shopping and shelling out the extra bucks for something legit and unique. If you aren’t a savvy vintage hunter then stores like Anthropologie, Urban OutfittersFree People, and Zara always have items like this as they’re hot on the trend game always. I’ve linked these store above with some of my fave kimonos I spotted on their site.
