This is the Davis Kimono in a new long-sleeve version versus the sleeveless vest version I had done a few years back. The color is a super soft dove gray/sandstone in a slightly textured crepe-de-chine silk. It comes in 3 other colors. See SHOP link here. The matte fabric has a strong drape and is so easy to style. I have paired it with a very light colored pastel pink maxi length spaghetti strap dress (to the ankles) and have played with using the belt it comes with as a neck scarf and using a thin black braided belt around my waist. To anchor the look and make more cool than sweet- as soft and pastel colors tend to come across that way- I chose a pair of black ankle boots with a round toe and heel. I love this look because it is super simple and very casual and comfortable. Ease and Comfort = chic. The Davis Kimono was named after my stylish mom’s last name. Her style preference was always about elegant silk separates in understated neutral colors, she is my favorite muse. Gold box chain necklace Mara jewelry.

The theme for this Kimono look is yin/yang- which embraces the polarities of femininity and masculinity. I began with the ultra feminine sheer Kimono- which is the Jane BIrkin. It is cut floor length and the sides are slit high- so that it can be worn like a blouse- by crossing the front panels of the Kimono in front of each other then either tied in the back or you can bring them back to the front and tie them in front- which is what I have done here. The Jane Birkin has a lined- wide pinstripe pattern woven into it that brings a cool factor to the sensuality of the fabric. I layered the more earthy and grounding Japan Kimono in Grayson- with a lapel- on top - which is cut in a long high/low duster length- meaning full length and shorter in the from than in the back. This Kimono roots down the fluidity of the Jane Birkinn yet still allows it to flow freely beneath it(something that every man should be to a woman ;) I love how these two pieces compliment each other in perfect harmony.
