A casual classic look with kimono jacket

I have had this kimono jacket for a few seasons. It is an ideal cover-up at this time of year.  It can be dressed up or down.  Here I have popped it on over my navy trousers and white shirt (see the previous post). It not only adds a touch of warmth but also elevates the outfit to more formal.


The pearl earrings and necklace help to give the outfit a more elegant look. I have twisted and knotted the necklace to give it a more individual look.  Similar necklace here and similar earrings here.

My shoes are a few seasons old from MarksandSpencer similar here

    It’s lovely. I’m meeting my sister and niece in Chicago for a girls’ weekend and a bit of shopping. I’m looking at retirement, so don’t really want to invest in any more “office” wear. I’m thinking a kimono might be a good add for me. Thanks for the inspiration…

    Yes, I have some Kimonos. Love them. Great look without being too fitted. Enjoyed the Contessa’s photo of your meet up!
