Rocking Your Kimono Like A Star

By Evelyn Ohiolei

Who else feels so elegant with the Kimono? It is an outfit that has gained acceptance globally and has continued to evolve with designers bringing in their creative touch as an upgrade.

The outfit which originated from Asia and is recognized as the national dress of Japan, has a way of preaching class whenever it’s worn.

Kimono jackets can be made from various fabrics like chiffon, cotton, African prints etc. and can be paired with dresses, pants, skirts, or jeans.

Months ago, Tennis star, Serena Williams stunned fans with a black sleeveless Kimono jacket by a Nigerian designer, Jane Michael Ekanem. Serena paired the Kimono with a floor-length skirt, white shirt, and strappy heels, as part of her fashion ensemble for the cover of Essence Magazine.

American actress, Jessica Alba also rocking a navy-floral kimono jacket with a mid-length dress, gave it a more formal look and nothing less than elegant. This is a perfect combination for just any type of event. Kimono with a modern pantsuit is another great option.

Okay, so another celebrity that has killed the Kimono trend is Rihanna. The talented singer rocked a Floral-brocade kimono mini dress by Dolce & Gabbana, showing off her hot legs. She went off accessories to put the concentration on the outfit.

For the love of African prints, Nigerian singer Yemi Alade decides to put an African touch to the Asian style. Alade rocked an Ankara print kimono jacket paired with a black inner wear and leggings. Her accessories sealed the African concept.

Due to the beautiful and multi-functional nature of a kimono jacket, it isn’t going to fade out anytime soon from the fashion scene.
