The Kimono trend continues into Spring 2019. A Kimono is the perfect way to elevate a simple spring outfit. Layer it over skinny jeans and a simple top or over shorts and a cami. The Kimono is also an easy way to add interest to a simple evening shift or tapered black tuxedo pants.
Pick your pattern!
Vogue, Butterick, McCall’s and Kwik Sew all have one. On the left is Butterick 6424 shown in a beautiful earthy botanical print. The black trim helps draw the eye to flattering vertical lines. Next we see McCall’s 7790 in a below-hip length and a more authenic looking Kimono sleeve. The pretty tree blossom print shown reflects the Japanese character of the Kimono. Kwik Sew 4208 is very youthful in fresh floral tones and paired with the spring staple – fitted white jeans. Finally we see Vogue’s interpretation of the Kimono with style 9354. The shape is pure simplicity and the burnout velvet and elegant fringe are pure drama.
Pair your trends!
Keep your Kimono up-to-date by incorporating other trends for Spring 2019. For a fresh, trendy colour, consider an elegant neutral, a glorious yellow, or Pantone’s Living Coral. Fringe and flowing feathers are also hot for Spring and would add amazing movement to your Kimono. If you want to put forward a beachy surf look, which is strongly forecast for 2019, consider a tie dyed fabric. May we suggest classic indigo and white for optimal versatility?
With so many patterns, prints, textures, trims and colours to choose from, you may need some extra room in your wardrobe for all of your kimonos!
