Hello my lovely Readers! Hope you all had a lovely weekend too. How’s summer is treating you between? In India, scorching summer has already begun, So you will have to have this summer staple – a lightweight summer jacket or Kimono for that matter. These printed, tasseled,bohemian kimonos are the best to style your summer and also to protect you from torrid sun.Use as a cover up on the beach or pair it with shorts,Jeans/ jeggings. All the styles with these kimonos have a well traveled feel.Let’s check it out below, How did I Styled my Kimono.
1- Wear it as a bohemian summer jacket for a breezy Sunday brunch ;).Pair it with jeggings or distress jeans
I am sure, You can already feel by now, how airy and summery this jacket/kimono is. 🙂
Break down of the beauty staple I chose for the look, after all, I know the breakdown of beauty products will create more enthusiasm to go ahead with the story further 😛
- Lakme shine Eyeliner in black
- Color bar BB cream in the shade Vanilla ( my top fav 🙂 )
- Nude lippie from faces in the shade ‘PEACH ME ON’
- Maybelline gel eye liner just to draw lower half eye lid.
- Maybelline Great Lashes in the shade ‘SAPPHIRE’ ( again my top fav 🙂 )
One shoulder trend is also not too hard to try out with this summer jacket, after all they remind us of those gaudy 80’s style. Isn’t it?
Of’course, we can carry 80’s outfit in 2017 as well 😀
Pair it with with shirt and Jeans for casual look.
2-Use it as a loose over sized Top:
And it is so simple to make a partitioned Top out of it. A loose ,over sized top would be best to deal with this summer. Grab the end corners of the kimono and tuck it nicely into your pants.
3- The third & exciting look is to carry it as a Tunic or short kurta 🙂
Yes Peeps! Yes! you heard me very right. Kimono conversion to Tunic is so elegant yet so simple to create. Hold the kimono in front so that not the back of Kimono but the arms fall in front of your eyes . Grab both the partition and joined them accordingly with the safety pins. It all depends on the length of your summer jacket that how many safety pins you would need . For this length I’ve used only three safety pins 🙂 And guess what? Fold your hair , grab a red gaudy bindi and a statement neck piece to rock the Indian dramatic look 🙂
Makeup products breakdown is same as you read above except I used ‘Scarlet Rose’ Lakme instead of Faces ‘PEACH ME ON’ on my lips.
