Kimono jackets have been popping up in high street brand shops and it's easy to see the appeal. Whether you want to to cover your upper arms or you're a die-hard 1930s fashion fan, there is definitely a place in your wardrobe for such an opulent feeling item. It's also one of the easiest pieces of 1930s clothing you can add to your wardrobe- as I think we can all agree that floor length bias cut dresses are not the simplest thing to wear!
Such gorgeous jackets don't have a small price tag even in places like Zara, so the way I see it is, why not spend a little bit more and get something made to a very high quality in luxurious and natural fibre fabrics?
I'm wearing our 1930s Clothing Kimono Jacket
here (over our London Trousersuit), which is a silk and viscose mix. The pattern is gorgeous, and the lining is a block green. I made this pairing because to have a simple but still vintage feel. This Kimono Jacket deserves to be the centre of attention, so I suggest keeping everything else low key. High waisted trousers feel like a natural companion to the jacket, but a pencil skirt also works well.

Wearing a vintage style kimono jacket doesn't have to necessarily feel dressy or vintage, as it works equally well with a top and a pair of slim fit trousers or jeans. Think modern artist! In terms of accessories, a wrap scarf or chunky edgy necklace will give it a super cool contemporary vibe.

If you are into your vintage looks and with a keen eye for detail and coordination, I would suggest wearing green shoes
with this and a mixture of pearl and jade jewellery. Phryne Fisher would be proud!
