Kimonos: The Ultimate Summer to Fall Transition Piece

The Kimono is ultimately a flawless way to upgrade your wardrobe from summer to fall; its the perfect transition piece. Kimonos are a trend that are taking the world by storm, and they are an essential piece that you should immediately add to your wardrobe. Kimonos effortlessly add glamour to any look. As shown, they can be worn casually with a pair of sneakers and leggings or with a dress to add even more femininity and sweetness. The Kimono gives power to women; they can throw it over any look and immediately feel effortlessly beautiful and stylish without worry.

Fall is the time to exchange your pastels for the rich colors of fall and to layer up your wardrobe, all of which the kimono masters with ease. We love this mustard yellow color because it expresses hues of joy and sunshine even on cool and cloudy fall days.  In fall, its easy to fall into dreary colors, but wearing color maintains spunk and passion. This mustard yellow adds a punch of color, but is also versatile and chic.

 

We love this Kimono in particular, because the intricate lace and striking color make it an absolutely beautiful statement piece. It is so effortlessly elegant and feminine, and adds a chic overlay to any look. This Kimono is also more suited to fall with its gorgeous rich color and long sleeve design. It is sheer, beautiful, and elegant and an essential piece for your fall wardrobe. Check out this beautiful Kimono and many others here .
