Oh, My Madame Butterfly! What tricks, Stevie Nicks! There’s nothing traditional about these kimonos, except perhaps, the sleeves.
Always wrap your kimono left over right, unless dressing a corpse (isn’t that a good thing to know?). The drama of what is still commonly worn in Japan is reimagined here in the most modern of ways: a shorter version worn casually open over jeans, while the longer ones work as a topper or even belted as an elegant dress.
Scarlett Statement Kimono, $98
For those who love patterns and sleeves, over a striped tee as shown or a groovy skirt for work. Perfect packable for travel and an unexpected celebration.
Alice & Olivia Velvet Kimono, $495
In navy velvet. this kimono reminds us of our time on the stage. Imagine Dame Maggie Smith in her dressing room. C’est tres chic.

Chufy Animal Print Kimono, $1200
An indulgence, sure, but worth it. Gorgeous silk for when you want to make an entrance and stay. The shorter sleeve will flatter your wrists and arm’s length of bangle bracelets. Bohemian and bawse.
