The Long Floral Kimono

7 May 2014


I'm sure you'll have noticed long kimonos have been appearing in stores everywhere. Many of them come in floaty chiffon (or some impersonation of it), which I love. Whilst a few do look a bit more like your grandma's dressing gown, than something you'd want to wear out, there are also a lot of them that are really pretty. I think hope mine qualifies as one of the later. Either way, I'm on board with this trend because anything that is light enough to throw on in Jakarta heat, but which still manages to hide my bum and give me that covered up feeling, is always nice to have as an option. 

This particular Kimono came from Forever 21 (Pondok Indah Mall branch for all you Jakarta friends). I couldn't track it down online but it's this season and it's still in store, well...here at least. There's plenty of others to choose from too, though. I have my eye on one in Topshop and a fringed one from River Island. Although, speaking from experience, you get caught on absolutely everything when you wear fringed ones - if you buy one, don't say I didn't warn you!

  3. The floral print is gorgeous! I love long kimonos/cardigans. I never know what to refer to them as LOL! They look great with jeans. I'm wearing one in my latest outfit post as well ;)

    1. I think most stores have gone with 'Kimono' as the term, but to me a Kimono is a tad different, more similar to the traditional Japanese ones. Nevermind, we can keep calling them kimono cardigan jacket things, right? Haha :)

      I'll stop by your blog now x

  5. I really want a long kimono but just not sure if I'd wear it out of fear of not pulling it off! It looks really lovely on you though, not too OTT which I thought it could be. You have some lovely arm candy too!

    1. Thank you so much! I reckon you could get away with one for sure. If you're a bit nervous, perhaps get one of the plain coloured ones. I think the easiest way to wear them is with jeans or denim shorts in summer :)

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting, hope to see you again soon x

  9. I live the colour and print of your kimono, it's so similar to a playsuits I've recently bought! X

  10. Gorgeous outfit, I think they're the best type of tops to wear when it's warm enough to not need a jacket.

    1. Yes, for sure. That's all the time here in Jakarta, haha! Actually, here it's a case of finding a day that's not so stupidly hot that you can actually wear this kind of extra layer!!

      Thank you for stopping by and all your comments lovely xxx
