When the weather is getting hot I prefer to wear more light colors, such as white. That’s why todays outfit is not allblack but allwhite…almost.
I combined this white pants with a soft white lace top, black plateau sandals, my new favorite satin kimono and of course my big fedora hat. Also this summer the kimono still belongs to the key pieces, in different shapes, lengths, pattern and prints. Since the last few years the East was always an endless source of inspiration for fashion and so the Kimono come to our life. As you already recognized, the Coachella festival was filled with stylish people in their bohemian looks and flower full kimonos. I like the bohemian look a lot, but I would rather wear this look in sunny summer areas, such as Bali or Vietnam. In Germany I just prefer to keep it simple and clean. Wearing more cold colors such as black, white, greyish and maybe marine blue. That’s why this black satin Kimono is just perfect for me. It has the perfect length, a special shape and the most cozy light fabric for an affordable price ( 80 Euro ). I already know that this kimono will follow me this whole summer, probably through Barcelona, Vietnam and Bali. Because in Asia the sun is really burning it is very important to cover your skin, either with some protective sun cream or just a light outwear or of course the Kimono. I am really looking forward for this summer and hope everything will work out. So stay tuned !
