Kimonos are such a fabulously fun trend because there are so many different types and endless ways to wear them. Perfect for layering, feminine and floaty, they add a touch of boho chic or old world glamour to instantly transform and elevate your outfit.

We know it’s not quite the season yet, but this kimono that we spotted on style star Jessica Alba is such a burst of colour. Cool over a bikini for summer, this could also be a wonderful spring closet addition. Better yet, you can purchase Jessica Alba’s aqua green, floral print, fringe bottom kimono locally for only R399 (was R500) at Elite Occasions. Aqua Green Floral Print Fringe bottom Kimono.
Wear your kimono with wedges and shorts or trainers and jeans (aka Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner) during the day, then glam it up in the evening with heals. Either way, it’s an easy way to add a huge dose of laidback-cool to your look.
