How to Wear a Black Fringed Kimono

Be a Lounge Lizard in a Luxe Kimono

It takes a certain loucheness to pull off a kimono jacket. Wear it over the wrong outfit, and you run the risk of looking like you've left the house in your dressing gown, but team it with the right items, and it can add a touch of vintage glamour to any look. Play with textures by wearing this River Island Floral Fringed Longline Kimono (£40) with simple blue denim. Shorts are the obvious choice for that thrown-together, end-of-Summer vibe, but skinny jeans and ankle boots will work just as well (add heels if you're on the petite side or the length might swamp you). Dresses are more tricky; stick to cotton florals or bodycon to be safe, avoid anything silky and lingerie-inspired unless you're sure you can pull it off.
