Hello there Trendsetters!
Today we have our trend radar on the kimono pyjama set trend that has taken over Instagram. Basically, a kimono is a light robe or cover-up that usually comes in tropical prints and popping colours. This summer, we have seen a lot of our favourite fashionistas rocking the trend including Toke Makinwa, Tiwa Savage and many more.
The trend is quite simple really, it’s an easy lounge wear that still makes anyone look like a fashionista.
How to Style the Trend
You can try a layered look, go for flared pants and a loosely fitted kimono set. Kimonos, in my opinion, should look like they were thrown on effortlessly but still chic.For a very casual look opt for comfy footwear. Throw on your summer sandals or slides, or you could opt for a more daring look with sneakers.
Most people opt for a matching kimono and pant set to give off the pyjama style and elevate the look with high heeled sandals so that the outfit doesn’t look too casual.
Slim Fit and Trendy
Try pairing your kimono with skinny jeans. The best thing about styling the trend is that it does not require too much effort. If you’re going for a fitted look, all you need is a pair of skinny jeans and a fitted top or t-shirt.
Kimonos come in various lengths, so choose the one that you’re most comfortable with. If you don’t want a dramatic look then avoid ankle-length versions and choose calf-length designs instead.
Style it up or dress it down, the kimono pyjama set will definitely turn heads.
