How To Wear a Kimono to Work


Kimono has become one of the trendiest clothing pieces of today. You can see lots of women wearing it to brunch, during errand days and even to parties. But it is rare to see women wear this piece of clothing to work. Maybe, it is because they do not know how to make this carefree clothing piece appropriate for work.

Kimono to work? Is that even possible? Is kimono even work appropriate? With the right styling tips, yes, it can be. To help you wear your favorite kimono to work, here are a few kimono styling tips that you should know about.

Go for an oversized kimono.

If you wish to make kimono look corporate, we recommend that you use it in place of your usual work blazer or coat. That is why it is recommended that you wear an oversized kimono that would look like a trench coat (but more stylish!). In this way, you can wear it with your usual work dress and it will instantly look work ready! If you are a bit on the edgy side, we recommend pairing a black kimono with a black dress, black pumps and bag. But if your stylish is more on the feminine side, it would be best if you will opt for a pastel colored dress and a pastel colored printed long kimono, and nude pumps.

Pair it with an all black ensemble.

Another great idea is to use a kimono to spice up an all black outfit. You can opt for your black work trousers, black tank top or polo and wear a kimono over it. But if you do not like black that much, you can try pairing a black trouser, white top and red kimono. For instances like this, you can use the color block trend to your advantage!

Pair it with pencil skirt.

There is no denying that pencil skirt is one of the most fashionable work outfit staple and that is why it just makes sense for you to pair your usual pencil skirt ensemble with a kimono. Again, you can just tuck in your tank top in your pencil skirt and wear a kimono over it.

Dress up for the winter season.

Kimono can still be worn to work even if it is the winter season! If you think that your usual office dress is too cold, then just simply wear a kimono over it and wear leggings underneath the dress. That will help you to stay warm despite the cold weather.

Yes, you can wear kimono to work, especially if you will follow all the tips that we have mentioned above! So, what are you waiting for? Try out all these styling tips and stand out in your work place.
