Dress Up, Dress Down: Kimono Style

I grabbed this lovely kimono-styled top from my friend Lynn a few weeks ago because I loved the pattern and cut. It’s from Japan. I’m not sure what this type of garment is called. The craftmanship that went into this is unbelievable. It’s an amazing piece and I promised to take good care of it. I wasn’t sure how to style it, but I tried a few things and found a couple that work.

top and boots

Top: Lynn’s
Tank: Old Navy
Leggings: Newport News
Belt: TJ Maxx
Boots: Qupid

I changed things around for my second look. I loved how the belt I bought on eBay has the same colors as the top. Pattern mixing is tough for me and I love when it works.

Have you seen this type of top before? What is it called? How is it typically worn?
