Kimonos are the cardigans of Spring and Summer. They provide light coverage for transitional weather and add a chic style element to your look. Kimonos are also multi-purpose items with their ability to be worn with dresses, pants and even swimwear. Their versatility is what makes them such a great piece to have in your wardrobe. Venus has a great selection of kimonos and tops to choose from including the one I’m wearing found here.
What I love particularly about this kimono are the details. I’m a sucker for great details on a garment! The cool, tie dye-like print mixed with the fringe hem gives off boho chic vibes. To counteract the flowy style of the kimono, I paired it with a fitted, ruched body-con dress. If you will remember, I wore this same dress in olive last month as you can see here. The fit was so great that I ordered it in white as well. Normally, I do not wear too many white garments, however, this dress is so well constructed that it makes it easy to wear. With a double layer of fabric, this dress provides ample support and helps to minimize your midsection. I don’t know about you but I’m all about those fringe benefits!

You make that dress look so good! But did you find that the fabric was maybe a little thin? I was reading the reviews on the site and some say yes some say no…
Thank you! This particular dress is great because its double layered. You can easily see through white fabric so that’s important. However, some of the darker colors are not double layered so I can see why there would be mixed reviews. Hope that helps
Ahh I see. That would a bit of a gamble then. Going for the plunge and getting this in white and maybe green. Thank you!
Hi Kristine, you look amazing! I’m new to your site so please forgive me if you’ve already discussed this topic, but what type of undergarments would one wear under this type of dress? Curious because I am ordering from Venus, but I’m afraid mine may show through. Thank you!
Never mind, I found your post about undergarments! ?
Great! Let me know if you have any questions
That dress is everything! I embrace my curves but I want to step out of my comfort zone and try a body con dresses and tge way you style your outfits inspires me to do that. I love your style.

Beautiful, as always. Your style is through the roof. This dress is so flattering; it looks like it was made for you. And I love the kimono with it. Also, I hadn’t thought of a kimono over a swimsuit–great idea.
