Trendscape: Kimono Styles: High to Low

February 2nd, 2006

The centuries-old Japanese kimono has undergone a major transformation, courtesy of fashion houses worldwide. The very contemporary result: an airy, flowy top that reveals just enough (usually with a low V-cut) but not too much (the length is still tunic or longer). These tops–shown here at every price range–are perfect for dressing up a pair of jeans, or wearing alone as a dress to go out.
