Summer Must Have: Kimonos

By Helena Ho

Here at HFB we know you’re just as excited for Summer as we are. And one trend we’re in love with at the moment is the kimono: the fashion trend that can be dressed up or down. As a cover- up or the ultimate fashion statement, kimonos are so versatile in the sense that they’re light, silky and oh-so-pretty! Romantic and feminine, they come in a range of different styles – from floral to leopard, floor-length to cropped, they can work with virtually any outfit. Stuck for inspiration? We’ve compiled a list of looks below:

If you’ve ever seen pictures of Vanessa Hudgens at Coachella Festival, then you’d know the kimono is famous for giving off that boho-feel. Best of all, it’s so easy to achieve! The key here is to dress as simply as you can – think plain cut-off shorts, paired with an ordinary singlet or crop top. Then throw over a floral kimono and you’re done! If you want to fancy it up a little, add some chunky bracelets or pile on some rings. This look is perfect for a music festival or even just going to the shops. Chic and simple? We’re sold.

Like we said, kimonos are a staple must-have for Summer. This look is perfect for the pool or beach – just throw it over your swimsuit after you’ve taken a dip! As an added plus, it’ll minimise sunburn too. We’re loving this combination with the felt hat and crotchet top.

Lovely Lengths

Kimonos come in cropped, mid-length and full length options – count on this trend to turn your average outfit into something spectacular. A long kimono works for all tall girls – and if you’re not tall, then cheat with a pair of heels. Concerned that a longer length may swamp your figure? Go with a kimono that falls down to the waistline – silhouettes will look slimmer and shoulders slouchier.
