Hi beautiful people!
It’s been long. How are you? Did you have a good time?
Well, for me, it’s been super hectic as I just finished my first exam today and thankfully it went well.
Today I am displaying one of my favorite, ‘Kimono-style Cardigan’, which I bought from a random store in South Delhi. I was mesmerized by the embroidery and the fringes at the end of the robe when I saw this kimono at the store.
Trends and styles have changed over the years but cardigans are still prominent today.
I’m sure that most of us know this highly versatile piece of clothing as just ‘Kimono’. While many of us don’t look at our closet and wonder about the history of its contents, that doesn’t mean they don’t have a story.
Taking the knowledge from Mr.Google, the word ‘kimono’ actually means a ‘thing to wear’ (ki ‘wear’ and mono ‘thing’). So in a way it is just a cardigan which is highly inspired by the Japanese traditional garment.
The new ‘Kimono’ style cardigan is called so because of the ‘T’ shape and it has loose sleeves. Modern inspired ‘Kimono Cardigan’ usually features bright colors and ethnic prints with lots of fringes. It features an open front,sometimes with usually a single button or a hook-and-eye closure.
Tips ‘n’ Hacks
If you absolutely don’t have any idea on how to style a Kimono Cardigan, the easiest way that I would suggest is either with shorts or with off-shoulder dresses. This way you can cover up the skin you are not comfortable showing.
As you can see, I’m wearing short length, high rise shorts and in order to cover up a little bit of my back I chose a ‘Kimono Cardigan’ which helps me wear my shorts without exposing too much.
I believe that the essence of a Cardigan is that it fits any body type whether it is straight, oval, diamond or pear body type. And it the best outfit for summer!
