Floral Kimono-Inspired Cardigans

The Confessions Kimono Brings Asian Design to Mainstream Fashion

— October 4, 2013 — Fashion
The Confessions Kimono by Nasty Gal brings gorgeous Asian design into a mainstream clothing article: the cardigan. The romantic silky black kimono has red pixelated roses, making it a piece that you can dress up or down.

The front of the kimono is open, so when you throw it on, it complements your outfit instead of hiding it. It also has split sides so on hot summer days, you can still rock the black sheer cloth, but is made from 100% polyester, so it can also keep you warm on chilly date nights.

The Confessions Kimono looks great with a black, slim-fitted dress and heels, or with black denim jeans, a loose t-shirt and combat boots. It will be the highlight of your outfit and you're guaranteed to turn heads.
