The kimono is a traditional Japanese garment. The word “kimono”, which actually means a “thing to wear” (ki “wear” and mono “thing”),  has come to denote these full-length robes. The kimono is always worn for important festivals or formal occasions. It is a formal style of clothing associated with politeness and good manners.
Thank you BOHO for the consistent free spirited way of dressing and expressing ourselves.  The Japanese took such great pride in their design and craft, with their fabrics and embroidery, that we should wear and celebrate their unique style & flair.
Most designers are suggesting a relaxed kimono look with your favorite shorts or denim. Keep your look fresh, clean and simple – allowing the ornate kimono to be the outfit.  Go Formal over that LBD allowing the sheer, flowing, perhaps ornately patterned embroidered or designed kimono add a little mystery to your LBD…give them something to talk about!
