OOTD: A Kimono of Birds...



Short Kimono- Topshop
T-shirt- River Island
Leggings: H&M
Boots: Topshop

I've long admired the gorgeous patterns, colours and designs of the Japanese kimono, yet never been brave enough to style one myself. This gorgeous one from Topshop has been in my wardrobe for ages, where I have looked at it fondly and often stroked it, but failed to wear it. Finally, I decided enough was enough and it was time to be brave. Due to the bold nature of the kimono, I styled the rest of my outfit in as simple a way as possible, sticking to monchrome tones and minimal pattens. This way, the kimono did the talking, as such a beautiful item should.
