Coffee And Cream – Lightweight Knitted Kimono Style

Cooing over all the Kimono styles online, I finally took the plunge and chose this knitted version from Evatrends.

I’ve wanted a floaty Kimono for ages but wondered how I would get on with the length and the bulkiness on little old me at 5’2

A couple of reasons that this Kimono knit captured my eye was the intricate lace knit, plus the fine light texture. Perfect for adding over the top of an outfit when the air is a little cooler.

You may have spotted my other choices from Evatrends here and here I have been happy with all three items. I’ve certainly got my wear out of the Kaftan! There’s still a discount code available for you &  I will leave a code at the bottom for a discount if you wish to shop.

Available in other colourways, this Kimono is perfect for slipping over an outfit when there’s a slight chill

This Kimono is available in other colours Black, Light Green, Camel or Coffee I love the light and floatiness of it and the colour of the outfit underneath showing through, adding interest.

 

 

Two splits either side of the Kimono (it’s listed as a cascade knit) it’s very oversized, especially on the sleeves but I really like the style of it. The sleeves I guess are three-quarter length but of course, on little me, they just come above my wrist, so bear that in mind if you wish to purchase this.

 

I’ve streamlined the outfit by wearing one colour underneath

I chose to wear Cream wide leg trousers, yonks old from Next and a silk top from Jaeger, keeping it all one colour and streamlined by not tucking in the top. I nearly wore jeans, but it’s still very warm here in London. I thought a sleeveless T-shirt dress or dress would also look good with this and I think it will create a good look with a roll neck and trousers or jeans later in the year.

 

 

Accessories I’ve kept simple, wearing my daily gold bangles, Gold strapped watch and an Amber coloured necklace. A neutral/cream coloured bag to finish.

 

The back of the Kimono is a plain knit. lovely and floaty. I’m really pleased with it. Perfect for having tea in one of my favourite local places. I’m at Brentford Lock. Just down the road to my little London dwelling, I like to come here an feed the ducks, watch the boats and the world go by

    What a stunning kimono. I love them and have quite a few. I very much love the boho style so have a lot of floaty ones. They’re perfect when there s a chill in the air. Thanks for sharing with #TriumphantTales!

    What a pretty kimono. The detailing in the sleeves really lift it and make it look textured and stylish. I have something like this in grey. Perfect for chilly mornings and evenings! Thanks for joining us for the #dreamteam linky x

    That is a really fun kimono and will be perfect for transitioning from summer to fall. I would have never guessed you were 5’2″. I’m 5’3″…I guess we don’t really look short in our pictures. HA! Thanks for linking up with us!

    Very pretty. This would be a great fall piece. I’m sure it can be paired with a lot of different things.

    Hi Laurie
    Love the design and the style of the cardigan. I think I am going to look for some long cardis for Fall, as I havenone in my wardrobe. You do neutrals so well! What a lovely necklace, i have the stone too and the colors are gorgeous for Fall as well. You look great!

      Thank you Jess. I have some long thicker cardigans for winter and find them better than coats sometimes. Have a great week sweetie xx

    I love how you styled your kimono with all-ivory underneath – really eye catching and pretty. Thanks for sharing with Vis Monday, xo

    I love the cut out detail in the fabric. This style will last you well into autumn. I have made a few kimonos recently, they are so versatile and easy to wear #pocolo

      Oh Louisa! I wish I was that clever! I could get the right length/fit then. I’m having a job finding material ones xx

    What a pretty outfit. I really liked that you kept it tonal. The kimono doesn’t look overwhelming, you picked a nice one.

    I absolutely love the cream color ensemble that you had below the kimono. You created a beautiful outfit from head to toe. And also, your hair color is stunning.

    Thanks for linking-up with the continental drift.

    I think kimonos work on every woman. I’m short too and I love them. Although my longer one like this, I ended up tying up the front ends so it was shorter. But this length looks lovely on you, Laurie!!

      Thank you Jodie. I’ve tried so many on and a lot of them drown me! I think the fluidity of this one works well though xx

    That kimono looks so beautifully floaty on you Laurie! I know what you mean about oversized clothes on little folk (like you and me) but you’ve made it work and you look so classy and elegant! I love these colours together xx

    As you know I’ve got this is light green, but I’m loving this colour – you’ve styled this perfectly as always Laurie.
    I’m struggling with no internet atm, having to borrow hubbies at his work – it’s driving me mad I hope to have it sorted tomorrow as I’m missing so much.
    Hope you are well Hun.
