If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m a big fan of kimonos. I wear them all year round in different variations from lightweight to heavy weight and from solids to patterns. In my opinion, they are one of the most versatile items that you can own in your closet and I just love the way that they flow. I’m not always in the mood to wear something form fitting so my alternative to that are garments like these because you can look put together in a very comfortable and casual way. Although I’m wearing my kimono with a tank top and jeans, I could easily swap that out for a dress, a top and a skirt and even a swimsuit. They are interchangeable and can work for a myriad of different occasions.
This particular kimono just stuck out because the print was so distinct. It’s from Maurices’ plus size line of Spring new arrivals. I’m also wearing the cropped denim from the line which I love. They fit amazingly well and were the perfect complement to this look. Whenever I’m wearing something oversized and/or long like a kimono, I like to balance that out with cropped jeans to give a little balance to the look. I find that wearing something long on top and ankle length pants on the bottom tends to weigh the look down. The cropped hem however provides some proportion and really helps to make the look shine.
Be sure to check out all of Maurices’ plus size collection here and their great selection for Spring!
