Thoughts on the Kimono fashion trend?

I've recently noticed the Kimono fashion trend (haven't seen it a lot but enough) and I have mixed feelings... I kind of like it but have no idea if I could pull it off haha.

Do y'all like it?

  • It's alright. Not something that I would wear, though. And I agree that the name "kimono" is pretty inaccurate.

  • Just wonderful. Now, every time I say that women look amazing in kimonos, people are going to think I am talking about *those* weird looking things.

    This is what a real kimono looks like: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kimono

    • i know what a real kimono looks like haha. it is unfortunate that they couldn't come up with a different name for this trend

  • Girls do tend to look amazing in a kimono
    but.. the ones in the link looks more like cardigans
    or something, to me :3

    • yeah i guess they are similar to a cardigan... but most cardigans are knit or more sweater-like and are not as loose, big, flowy, or patterned as the kimonos pictured.

    • Oh, I guess I didn't really answer
      the question though.

      Yeah, I think this style looks great :)

  • I only really liked 2 of them. The rest were okay or bad.

  • I don't so much mind the fashion itself, but I'm not partial (to put it lightly) to them calling it a kimono when it's really just a jacket-thingy... Come up with an original name (or at least something that describes it better) instead of calling itself something it's far from being...

  • I don't like it, I LOVE it!

    It's a beautiful, elegant yet not too ordinary look to go for. It instantly dresses up any outfit. :)

  • They look really ugly and are too loose. They seem more like robe vests.
