Kimonos are the ultimate Spring essential and you needn’t have a parasol or Chinese lantern to work this into your wardrobe. As a chic alternative to the poncho, wear this silky luxury as a stand alone piece utilizing a belt or throw it on over a tank and ripped jeans for the ultimate in boho-glam. Far flung looks are all the rage this season seen in the windows at Free People and Aritzia as well as the etherial nod coming down the Gucci runways. Kudos to Kim Kardashian who brought this fashion statement to the forefront while pregnant. The kimono is great to conceal, but also reveals. The man in your life will surely love these look more than a jeans tee shirt because the kimono slides off with just one pull of a string. Ha! Available in lace, printed silks, and summery cotton varieties there is no reason why every daring fashionista can’t show a little love to our friends in the East by honoring this timeless tradition. Reveal your inner Geisha.
