That "Black and White" or "Stripes" are huge this season should be clear by now but only a few fashionistas have dared to wear another important trend of the moment: the oriental one. You only see it very sporadically and most ladies let this trend speak through a modern day kimono. In my eyes this is the best method to encounter the oriental trend as kimonos are really versatile and from casual to sexy almost everything is possible. I bought my kimono at H&M about one year ago and I´m curious to hear what you think about my version of "Geisha Glam":
Outfit: kimono - H&M Conscious Collection, bralet - C&A, shoes - H&M, earrings - DIY
To add some sexiness I decided to only put a bralet underneath the kimono and partly close it with a slim belt. The sandals and earrings should raise some additional oriental feelings. Personally I would probably only add some black pants but if you want the outfit to look more daring you could also add a pencil skirt. For a not so serious look why not combine it with the famous Zara skort?
If you like the oriental trend I can only recommend you to take a look at this cover shoot presenting the Geisha Glam at its best.
What do you think? Is this your cup of tea or are you too occidental?
