WIWTW: Kimono Weather

Hey guys! Welcome to another What I Wore This Week post, where I feature an outfit I wore during the week, the occasion and how I styled it.

This week’s outfit is entirely based on my favorite piece of clothing from my summer wardrobe (30°C guys!), a crispy white lace kimono.

I know, my hand looks weird here, but this usually happens when I’m posing for a picture and I don’t know what to do anymore. It’s such an awkward situation that I end up doing something awkward with my hand and it turns out like this.

Event/Occasion: An evening walk
Lipstick: Afghan Red Satin Lipstick by Nars mixed with foundation

Sunny weather calls for sunny clothes, so I decided to wear my white lace kimono from New Look. White lace is totally in this season, and thank God because I have so many white lace pieces leftover from last year. White lace is not only elegant but really becomes the center of your entire outfit whether you’re wearing a dress, shorts or a kimono like me. If you choose to dress casually, the rest of your outfit should be pretty simple because white lace is fancy enough.

I chose a simple black tank top from Forever 21 to wear under the kimono so that the black would contrast perfectly with the white. I usually do this when I want to emphasize my statement piece (in this case, the kimono). I opted for a pair of dark blue high-rise jean shorts from H&M because again, the dark blue lets the white take over the show. If I wore light blue shorts, the white wouldn’t have stood out as much.

Finally, to dress down the look, I wore my comfortable-like-slippers Nike Air Force 1 sneakers. Their color brought out the white kimono perfectly, and completed my entire outfit!

To get my look, check these out:

Kimono: $27.90 at Forever 21
Jean Shorts: $76.00 or €68.00  at Abercrombie & Fitch
