One of our Starts at 60 Stylers has asked:
“I have noticed a lot of kimono styles in the shops this season. How do you wear a kimono without it looking like a dressing gown?”

Simone, that is a good question. I have actually looked at some of them and thought the same myself! Kimono styles are big this season as part of the boho chic trend creating a more relaxed silhouette. When I look back they make me think of Stevie Nicks!
I think that kimonos work best as a layering piece worn with pants. Denim works particularly well. Ensure the top you put underneath does not compete with the kimono, ideally in plain white or a plain colour that will co-ordinate with the print of the kimono. Don’t forget some accessories – a great pair of sandals and a long pendant necklace are perfect!
