Boho chic is a major trend this season and it seems that the kimono is taking center stage. I have seen so many in shops already in all kinds of prints and fabrics.

A colorful sheer kimono will certainly put you in the mood for spring!

I love them combined with neutral colors, especially white, as the colors and pattern of the kimono can really shine that way. They look good with skinnies, both cropped and full-length but will look fabulous with wider or flared pants too. Pair them with a basic fitted white t-shirt or singlet underneath. Some of you may also like to belt the kimono.

If you keep the colors of your top and bottom the same, you will create a great column of color underneath your kimono which will be slimming and elongating and is perfect for hiding your belly.

I have not succumbed to a kimono yet as this style does not really fit my style personality, although I would consider one for my tropical holiday coming up soon. For day-to-day life, I could definitely be tempted with a more structural kimono in one color like this one. All details of the items used in the top image can be found here.
