We all have at least one kimono, if not five. Long, short, solid, print. Certainly one of the most versatile garments in fashion today.

I have worn my kimonos with T-shirts and silk camies, with jeans to dress pants.

Interesting kimono fact: The Japanese garment originated in the late 700s. Here’s a very interesting story about how designers are taking it into the future.
