May 9, 2018

In Japanese, the word “kimono” traditionally meant “clothing,” or more accurately, “thing to wear.” But in more recent years, the word kimono has been used to describe a loose robe with wide sleeves that is tied with a sash and is often long in length. The soft, silky material, and loose, flowy fit of a kimono makes this item of clothing a fun alternative to layering with a cardigan, blazer, or jacket when it’s warm outside. In fact, for Summer 2018, the kimono is one of the hottest trending items.

Here are a few of my favorites.

Speaking of trends, another item that is trending now are mules. Typically worn as bedroom attire, mules are a closed toe, open back shoe with no constraints around the heel and was once worn by french aristocracy. Now mules can be worn by anyone, at anytime of day or night. When shopping for mules, you’ll want to find one that has a tight fitting vamp on your foot. If slippage is really a concern, look for one with a strap around the heel to ensure the shoe will stay in place.

Here are two of my favorites.
