Fringe Benefits

April 20, 2017








Kimonos are the cardigans of Spring and Summer. They provide light coverage for transitional weather and add a chic style element to your look. Kimonos are also multi-purpose items with their ability to be worn with dresses, pants and even swimwear. Their versatility is what makes them such a great piece to have in your wardrobe. Venus has a great selection of kimonos and tops to choose from including the one I’m wearing found here.

What I love particularly about this kimono are the details. I’m a sucker for great details on a garment! The cool, tie dye-like print mixed with the fringe hem gives off boho chic vibes. To counteract the flowy style of the kimono, I paired it with a fitted, ruched body-con dress. If you will remember, I wore this same dress in olive last month as you can see here. The fit was so great that I ordered it in white as well. Normally, I do not wear too many white garments, however, this dress is so well constructed that it makes it easy to wear. With a double layer of fabric, this dress provides ample support and helps to minimize your midsection. I don’t know about you but I’m all about those fringe benefits!

    Beautiful, as always. Your style is through the roof. This dress is so flattering; it looks like it was made for you. And I love the kimono with it. Also, I hadn’t thought of a kimono over a swimsuit–great idea.
