Why I Love Kimono Dresses

Not sure if anyone else recalls this, but about 10 years ago kimono dresses were an “it” item. I had one back in high school and still wear it to this day because it is so flattering. What makes them so flattering is the accentuated waist line. It draws attention to your waist which will make you look slimmer. Dresses can end up looking like a comfortable sleeping bag, but with a cinched waist a dress can really make you stand out. Your natural waistline will thank you later.

There is also the amazing necklines of Kimono dresses. They lay very elegantly on your chest. It doesn’t show too much off while still showing off your figure. When I saw this piece at Wolf and Whistle, I knew it was the one because this silhouette is my favorite as is the color.

I paired it with fishnets from the shop Time for Tights. There tights are so adorable and it gives this dress an added edge. Fishnets are really having a moment right now, so don’t be afraid to try them.

    I’m all about the accentuated waist line because I’m not really one of those curvy figures so something there to cinch in my waist line a little helps A TON! You’re so right it’s really flattering! The vneck line is great because you can also pair it with a nice necklace too! The pattern is gorgeous, do they have other patterns/colors?
