School time drop-offs, sashaying around the supermarket, coffee with the girls or heading off to the office…the Batwing Kimono has got you covered. Try pairing it with a pair of cropped boyfriend jeans, your favourite skinnies or a good old pair of leggings. Too hot for long pants? Then throw it on with your favourite pair of shorts (if you don’t already have the Hepburn Shorts pattern then now is the perfect time to give it a try). For a more corporate look, a cropped Kimono with a pencil skirt or slim leg pants will have all the girls in the lunchroom whispering about which designer store you bought your outfit.
Time to sass up your Kimono for a night on the town or a dinner date with Channing Tatum (ok, more like your husband, but a girl can dream can’t she?). Something as simple as a singlet dress can be totally transformed with a Kimono in a bright, bold print. Throw on some heels, wiggle into your tummy control underwear, slap on some lippy and you’re good to go. Or add some va-va-voom to a monochrome outfit by using a textured fabric like lace.
Use your imagination! Wear it over your swimmers at the beach, use a sporty mesh fabric and pair it with your gym clothes or if you’re really daring make it in a sheer chiffon and wear it in the bedroom with some sexy lingerie!
Most of all, have fun and love the skin you’re in because life is way too short not to be fabulous!!
