KIMONOS are my faves!!!! What about you #AsoEbiBella??!!  Kimonos are a traditional Japanese garment sewn by hand and worn for important festivals or formal occasions. The full-length robe is normally wrapped around the body and secured by a sash. The robe became a popular trend in 2014 and since then, both men and women have worn them in different stylish ways and for almost any occasion. From the beach to work, the kimonos have become a style staple all over the world.

Traditionally, kimonos were made of linen, silk, and satin, but modern kimonos have added more versatility to this classic clothing item. Now you can find them in other materials like chiffon, lace and even Ankara and “Ankara silk”.

Kimono jackets are one major hit with Ankara. These Ankara kimono jackets are staples for summertime because they are breezy jackets that fit all irrespective of your size or shape. A major figure forgiving cloth which gives an instantly chic look to whatever it is being worn with is one of the fashionable things about these jackets.

Ankara kimonos can be paired with anything – jeans, shorts, dress or palazzo pants. The jackets can also be worn as a wrap dress with a belt holding it together.
