The Kimono Series

The Kimono Series: Part 4

Hey everyone, how’s it going?

Here it is people! Another kimono series sketch! This one I quite enjoyed because the kimono itself has a very unusual combination of colours. At least to me, they are colours I’d never put together ever! Check it out:

I decided to use a shirt dress, as I am in love with those (check out my post on the subject here) and to match it with a top on top. That is such a popular thing to do here in Japan! Put a spaghetti strap top on top of t-shirts, dresses, shirts, anything! I’ll definitely write a post on those at some point.

So, what do you think? Would you wear this look? Let me know in the comments!

Japan Style 2: The Shirt Dress

Now this was a piece that I thought I’d love just on its own. I love long shirts, and I especially love flannel shirts. So when I found that there were shirt dresses I went crazy and immediately went online to find the best one!

However, I could never have imagined the amount of ways that you can style a shirt dress! And that’s what my first magazine showed me. So, here are a few looks from a Japanese fashion magazine so you guys can have an idea.

True, I don’t like all of the looks. And I wonder how comfortable the layered looks are, Japanese wearistas layer clothes in the weirdest of ways, but I did like a lot of them and have worn my shirt dress in a number of ways.

Here are a few photos of me trying out different looks.

You can tell that one of the photos was from a while ago (before I cut my hair), but what do you think? Am I doing it right? Which one is your favourite look? And which one should I try next?

Layer up! It’s getting cold!
