The Kimono Topper as a Great Addition for your Fancy Outfit
Quote of the day: “I think your whole life shows in your face, and you should be proud of that.” Lauren Bacall
The kimono topper is a piece of clothing that is being showcased lately. I have to think many of us don’t actually have this item in our closets right now. However, if you do, pull it out—it’s fashionable. If you don’t already own one, I might suggest to buy one! I actually think this is a very appropriate piece of clothing that us older women can wear in many situations.
The definition of a kimono topper is a long, loose robe with wide sleeves. When I started to see kimonos feature in some style magazines and online I knew I had to buy one to use in one of my blog posts. I said to myself how great it would be for all three of us to wear this kimono. So I bought the one featured in this blog. The reason I got so excited about the idea of using the kimono in a post was because I realized how it can be so applicable for various occasions. Like for example, this dressy version…it’s like a wrap or shawl with sleeves!
Jodie (50+) Outfit: Most of my formal dresses are sleeveless, so this kimono is a perfect covering. This bracelet I actually knitted using a kit I received at our knitting retreat (thanks Laura)!
Nancy (60+) Outfit: Since there are no buttons or closures on this kimono, it is meant to hang open and thus doesn’t take away the focus on the beautiful dress.
Charlotte (70+) Outfit: Considering there are so many colors in this kimono, it ends up being a perfect piece to bring together two different colored separates!
