As you might have understood from a previous post, I am doing a little collab with Dresslink, which sent me a few items for me to review, and I thought I could show you 3 ways I like to wear this kimono, which I have been wearing basically all the time since I got it!
Outfit n°1: The babydoll
This kimono is very feminine and doll-like, and I thought that for this first outfit, I would go all out and pair it with other very girly and feminine items. I think it compliments this babydoll dress very well, as they have a similar cut. I added these mint green heels and sheer socks for extra cuteness and to give a little bit of vintage to the outfit - and because obviously, I had to add my touch of pastels.
Dress and heels: Yesstyle
Outfit n°2: The softener
As it is so delicate, the second thing this kimono can do is soften any tougher fabric or design, such as denim or a geometrical pattern. The light fabric and the dainty details of this piece really transform the outfit, making it softer and more personal in my case.
Crop top: Newlook
High waisted jeans: Forever 21
Outfit n°3: Mermaiding
And the third use of this kimono I wanted to share with you is the beach cover-up. It is actually the very first use I planned for it when I saw it, as I was looking for something cute and delicate to cover myself a little bit at the beach this summer. I actually paired it with a Dresslink swimsuit, and I think that they look perfect together, they create a slightly vintage look and make me feel like a mermaid.
What I really like about this bikini is that you can wear the bottom in two different ways: you can wear it down and then it looks like a little skirt and shows a little bit of your belly, or you can wear it up and very high-waisted if you prefer. The top also comes with removable pads if you want some extra volume, I am not wearing them and don't plan to do so, for obvious reasons.
So, overall, I think this kimono is such a versatile piece, I could wear it with a hundred other outfits. The quality is really nice and I love its pretty crochet detailing. I think the sheer material is super pretty, as it shows the bikini or a little bit of arm through the sleeves.
Which outfit was your favourite one? How would you wear it?
