Modern Tradition

Modern meets tradition with this cute fall trend! Inspired by the traditional Japanese garment, kimono jackets and tops are emerging onto store racks for the upcoming season.  Featuring the traditional oversize sleeves, kimono jackets add a modern twist with fun prints and patterns. The bigger sleeves are perfect for those cooler evenings, but are also light enough for the warmer afternoons which make this fall essential a perfect transitional piece from season to season. Thrown over a tank or fitted t-shirt, you can pair the kimono top with shorts or jeans, helping to provide some versatility as you start to pack away some of your summer favorites. So pay some homage to the past by adding a modern kimono to your wardrobe!
