Kimono fever...

One of my favourite pieces this Spring (and due to the warm weather it has been a god send) is the kimono jacket. A perfect cover up item, whether you are going for a casual look, teaming it up with a pair of cut off shorts, silk vest top and sandals or going for a slightly smarter look pairing it with slim fitting harem pants (or if you are tall and slim a pair of palazzo pants!). I bought the two below to add to my summer wardrobe as I loved the delicate detailing on the cream Zara jacket (£69.99) and the beautiful flower detailing on the River Island number (£39.99).
What are your thoughts on the Kimono? Would you wear one? Below are a couple of other options for those wishing to add this beautiful cover-up to their wardrobe. River Island £39.99
Top Shop £50
Beyond The Valley Butterfly Melody Print Silk Kimono Jacket, ASOS, £220
Miss Selfridge, £38
