How I style A Red Kimono

Hey guys!

I was recently on the hunt for a light kimono (particularly for those cooler summer nights) when I found the perfect pretty red one in Newlook! I opted for red instead of the standard floral kimono as I wanted something that wouldn't clash with all my patterned clothing - and florals can be quite limiting! (which is unfortunate as I'm floral obsessed!).

Here are a few ways I styled it...


Florals (of course!)




Newlook Crotchet Hem Red kimono - £19.99 / Newlook Floral Playsuit / Newlook Necklace & Bracelets / Brit-stich White Bag - £35 (discounted from £70) / Missguided White Strappy Heels - £24.99 

I'm so in love with my new brit-stitch bag! It's just so pretty and I know I'll be featuring it in many more outfit posts! I managed to take advantage of one of the 50% sales which they have regularly (check their instagram out here to keep an eye out for more) and I paid just £35 rather than £70! Definitely not bad for a quality real leather (and super cute) bag! :) 

Bardot Stripes




Topshop Navy Bardot Top - £12 / Topshop Black Fedora Hat - £25 / Topshop Blue Denim Joni Jeans - £36.00 / Missguided Black Bag / Newlook Red Heels - £19.99 / Newlook Daisy Necklace - £7.99

This is such a comfy outfit (particularly due to my favourite Topshop Joni jeans!) and it's perfect for those cloudy summer days! I think the bright red from the kimono and the crotchet detail really livens up a simple striped outfit :)

Aztec Styling





Boohoo Bodycon Aztec Dress - £12 / Newlook Black Fringe bag - £19.99 / Newlook Necklace & Bracelets / Topshop Black Fedora Hat - £25

Aztec prints, crotchet detail, fedora hat & fringe bag = my idea of the perfect festival ensemble! If i was lucky enough to be going to a festival this summer I would definitely be wearing something like this - lots of detail but also really comfy :)


Well thanks so much for reading and see you very soon!
