Ever since Gucci sent their luxe embroidered kimonos down the catwalk a few seasons ago we’ve had a thing for this Japanese inspired robe jacket. The ultimate transeasonal piece, kimonos are on our radar once again as the temperature cools down and we move towards autumn.
Elegant yet bohemian, the kimono is loved by celebrities and street style stars alike.
Perfect for throwing over a basic ensemble, a statement kimono will instantly up the fashion ante on any outfit. Why not jazz up a plain tee and denim cut-off combo, or come autumn pair with flares and ankle boots?
While Gucci’s aforementioned Kimono (loved by Beyonce, of course) will set you back around a whopping £15,000, you’ll be pleased to hear the high street is awash with affordable options. Whether you prefer a long and swishy open kimono or short wrap-around number, there’s a certainly a style to suit you. Zara definitely owns this category but Free People and ASOS also deserve a special mention.
