Nothing says spring and summer quite like a gorgeous KIMONO. The most ideal layering fashion for the season, your mom simply cannot go without one in her closet! Kimonos are extra special for the way they serve a purpose in a blissful way. Lotus has many chic styles that are wispy and fashionable that she will love!
- Opt for a simple solid white or pretty pastel color in a lightweight fabric to add breezy style to her outfit.
- Flourish in floral. Not only a typical warm season print but THE trendiest print of the year. A great way to add a little print to a neutral summer outfit and to incorporate many of the beautiful colors from the Spring/Summer 2018 Pantone Color Palette.
- A classic lace or crochet kimono is always a go-to layering piece for mom. Try adding a twist to this classic style by going for a bright color to keep her fresh for summer.
Kimonos are great to throw on and go or to have on hand when the breeze picks up. They are lightweight and easy for all day wear; plus they look great draped over your arm and are easy to tote along if you get too hot. They serve a purpose in a fashionable way. They can also be worn over any kind of outfit, from a short dress to maxi dress and top and bottoms. They are feminine, classy and can be dressed up or down to suit your mom’s personal style.
