Kimono Style - Lookbook Store ♥

The online fashion boutique 'LookBook Store' was founded in 2009 and has been growing ever since, providing the latest fashion trends to customers from all walks of life. They have a huge range of clothing at great prices, and you can always find something a little unusual, which I love. I was really excited when LookBook offered a couple of pieces of clothing to review as I had had my eye on a beautiful kimono for some time! It is mint (my current colour obsession!) with a gorgeous floral pattern, and perfect for summer. I also picked a glamorous white playsuit as a change as I don't usually wear them.

I decided to do a post on how to dress a kimono up for a night-out or event, and down for casual daytime wear. Kimonos are very on trend right now and there are lots of different kinds available on the high street, from plain and sheer to crocheted and tasselled! I love this kimono as it is very feminine, and the sheerness of the fabric makes it light and comfortable for sunny weather.


For my 'dressed up' kimono outfit I picked a chic white playsuit with a v-neck and 3/4 length sleeves. It also has a cute frilly trim on the short bottoms. I don't usually wear playsuits but I think they can look really good as an alternative for weddings or special occasions when you don't fancy wearing a dress. I really like the combination of the elegant white playsuit with the cool mint colour of the kimono. With the suede M&S wedge sandals it makes the outfit a little bit more dressed up and worthy of a special summer party or wedding! Some silver or gold jewellery would add the finishing touch and add a luxe feel!









For my 'dressed down' kimono outfit, I paired the kimono with a white £5 sundress from Primark and my mint Primark sandals. I really love this outfit as it's so comfy yet so pretty and perfect for warm weather! Again I have picked white to go with my mint kimono but any colour would look nice. Kimonos are an instant outfit pick-me-up, they make any ensemble look more put together!
