Street Style Trends: Layering a Sweatshirt Under a Kimono

Layering a Sweatshirt Under a Kimono

I love it when my favorite items to wear in my closet become ‘IT’ items because of a trend, like your good old hooded sweatshirt. On it’s own it is still kind of ho-hum but the way people are styling it this season has made it the hottest thing you own. This is a trend that has it’s roots in street style and as a result if you can master layering your sweatshirt under your kimono you too can be perfectly on trend.

You probably already have a kimono in your closet but you may have thought it was a warm weather item only. Nope. Add a sweatshirt underneath like your favorite street style fashionista and voila, it transforms the lightweight piece of outerwear into a fall ready garment. This styling could be done similarly with a trench coat or any other lightweight item but I just love how the rich print of the kimono contrasts with the utilitarian sweatshirt.

The trick here is how you balance out your proportions. Today’s sweatshirt is a bit looser, as is the kimono, so I chose a more fitted skirt to contrast with the oversized nature of the top. My favorite sock boots also helped slim down the line of the look and add a pop of color.
