Currently Obsessing: Kimono Jackets

Kimono jackets work on so many levels for the modest fashionista. They  are basically a loose coverup with wide sleeves, inspired by the traditional Japanese robes. They came into style with the onset of the “boho chic” look, which was widely popularized by celebrities such as Nicole Richie, Vanessa Hudgens and the Olsen twins. They have been coming back every season with updated cuts and fabrics, and make for a perfection transition piece from summer to fall. Lengthwise, we like them long — all the way to the floor. The full length kimono jackets have the silhouette of an abaya and are just as modest and elegant. They can be paired with maxi dresses, high-waisted pants and even jeans. For the perfect bohemian look for fall, pair a full length floral print kimono jacket with a plain white tee, skinny jeans and ankle boots.
