How to Style a Velvet Kimono Jacket

IMG_1018 editI’ve been wanting to share with you all this kimono ever since I bought it. Its from Peekaboo Vintage’s concession stand at the Topshop in Oxford Circus. I fell in love with their rack as soon as I saw it and it took so long to choose my favourite. I eventually chose this one because I’ve always preferred the more duster jacket shape to kimonos as I find it easier to style and the bold, almost geometric pattern made an interesting change to the traditional oriental fabrics I normally lean to. For the icing on the cake its velvet, and who can resist clothes that feel nice?!

I paired it with a lilac tiered cold shoulder top, which I thrifted from depop for £11, to compliment the purples in the jacket. And with skinny jeans and boots this outfit is so easy to throw on for day or evening wear.
