It’s no secret that my ultimate closet staple is my solid black Maxi (see The Multiple Ways of My Maxi). It has been my “go-to” all Summer – a blank canvas of dress allowing me to create new looks by adding different pieces (a crop top, statement necklace, vest, etc). As the Fall season draws near, I was starting to become slightly concerned about retiring the dress for the season.
Before my concern could even reach a level of panic, I saw the perfect piece to compliment my Maxi during the cooler months ahead – a Maxi Kimono! A flawless combination of the consistently favored staple and my new obsession of a trend in one amazing piece!
I love how the flow of the longer length Kimono adds a sense of elegance to a casual ensemble. I added a belt over my Maxi Kimono as a statement piece and also to accentuate my waist. I kept the color in my belt and booties consistent with the outfit, but added the teal clutch for a pop of color.
It is my prediction that the Maxi Kimono will be one of Fall’s hottest trends! I can confidently say that with my [Maxi] Kimono Crush, it will easily become my new closet staple for Fall. Hope you all love it as much as I do!
