Kimono time (and how to wear them)

Here’s a post-heatwave look I still wanted to share with you guys! It’s all about one of my favourite pieces to wear during Summer: the kimono.

This one in particular is from the H&M Conscious Exclusive collection a few months ago, which is all about recycled fashion. The material is very heavy and has super detailed emberoidery, turning it into a very chic, sophisticated piece.

For a day full of meetings I styled it with the most simple outfit you can image so that the kimono would be the ultimate star piece of the look. Jeans, a black long sleeve and those beautiful laced sandals I got myself last Summer. As I’m not a minimalist girl, I did finish the look with these eye-catching black and white Neubau sunglasses and a few jewelry pieces from my own collection for Diamanti Per Tutti.

This particular kimono isn’t exactly heatwave-proof, but during Summer there’s plenty other ones that will do the trick! I’ve added a few of my current favourites here for you to explore.

Also, I’ll do a How To Style video on kimonos at CONTOUR soon, so that you can get inspired by different ways of wearing them. Stay tuned, my friends!
