WHATS ON THE HIGH STREET.....

Kimonos are a really colourful and stylish option to a summer jacket-they tend to be so light and floaty that are great for all sizes and give you that extra bit of coverage. They are also a perfect day to night piece which look great with denim and also tailored items such as a tapered cropped pair of trousers. Here is what's currently availbale on the High Street:




   



 



This kimono was bought (but still not worn!) when I was on holiday last August:





I really love the vivid orange, bold pink and cobalt blue against the greys and zebra print and the orchids are so pretty too: 



What style of  summer jacket will you be opting for this coming season?

That kimono is gorgeous, what a fab find.
If this summer's anything like last year I'll be wearing my fake furs and 1960s raincoat again! x

That's a real bargain for such a lovely silk print! Wish I could find a closer fitting one for myself.

that's really a great find, sharon, really a great price for something made of silk!

I will wear my denim and leather jackets and of cause my blazers.

I want something kimono like as well, actually!
But I have to say your thrift find is so nice, it beats all the other kimonos in this post. Well done! Love it!

Love that kimono jacket, what a find! I love kimono jacket style. I have two which I have upcycled from vintage dressing gowns, actually I am wearing one of them right now.
