3 Colours To Wear With A Navy Kimono

I'm so close to 30 wears with this navy printed kimono so I've been wearing it a lot lately so I can reach that goal and put together a 30 ways to wear post with it.

Since I haven't hit that number quite yet, I'm just showing you 3 different ways I've worn this navy kimono recently, and some ideas of different colours to wear with a blue kimono.

What I wore:

TeeJeanswest Emily cotton v-neck tee in coral
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short

BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a much needed family day! While the smoke haze from the bushfires had died down a little near is the air quality was still pretty low and we hadn't spent a lot of time outside. Me being sick hadn't helped!

We decided to spend the day on the coast where the air was much clearer, having a picnic in the park before dinner at my parents. It was a really fun day and a much needed chance to relax. Even if we did have to pull out the first aid kits (yes plural) out the car just after we got to the park, the rest of the day went much better.

This v-neck tee is labelled as coral but always looks so red in pics! I like red and blue together and think this coral tee really pops with the navy print. I think navy and black go together well too and these shorts were so comfortable for a morning playing in the park. The Louis Vuitton neverfull is a great bag for carrying all the little extras at a picnic that don't fit in the main bag too.

The tassel necklace adds a touch of a third colour with the turquoise beads as well.

Why I wore it:

Another shorts, tee and kimono outfit, this one even brighter than the one above! Orange and blue are a bold colour combo and I love the two together. With my classic blue Bermuda denim shorts and  neutral tan MAB camera bag it was a simple and colourful outfit for another play date in the park with some school mums, a few weeks ago before the smoke haze got too bad.

Probably could have tucked this orange tee in a little to make the outfit look more streamlined like I did in the first outfit, but with the longer length of the kimono and longer shorts I thought I'd try it untucked.

Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs pearl, howlite and hematite beaded bracelets

Why I wore it:

Something very different, wearing a dress and kimono together this time. I've worn this grey skater dress with kimonos in the past and really liked the combo so thought I'd try this navy kimono with it.. I like blue and grey together, and I kept it simple with neutral studded sandals and a navy bag to match the print on the kimono.

Couldn't resist adding a little more colour though with this fun thrifted magenta statement necklace - it really stands out against the grey dress and I like pink and blue together too.

It was a hot day, and I felt a little warm in this! The dress is quite a thick cotton. Wanted to wear a dress to try beat the heat and look a little more pulled together for an appointment with my son. A sleeveless one might have worked better though.

How You Can Wear It:

A navy kimono is a wardrobe staple for me and it works with so many other colours! Red, orange, pink, turquoise or even a neutral like grey are great things to wear with it. You can go big and bold with a bright tee or more subtle with a colourful accessory like a necklace.

  14. I love the color and pattern on that kimono - I really need to get some to wear this spring. It's perfect in all three ways you've styled it. I think my favorite, though, is with the marigold tee shirt. I love that bright pop of color with the kimono and jeans presenting as a very similar color. The turquoise tassel necklace in the first one is perfect to go with so many things. Turquoise goes with so much.

    I hope you're not sick because of all of the smoke. How sad it is to think of the loss of so many koalas and the other wildlife caught up in this disaster. Praying for an end to it soon. Stay safe and stay indoors.

    1. Thanks Ruth. It's good the fires near us are a little more under control so the smoke is giving us a bit of a break now and then, I can't imagine what it's like closer to the fires! I know Sydney has had it really tough.

  15. I love the bright colors you paired with it especially! I think navy is so pretty paired with bright colors! It's not as harsh as black.

  33. Aren't you the queen of kimonos, Mica! You always seem to find different ways to wear them. No doubt this one will reach 30 wears soon. There's also no doubt that the second one, combining orange and navy in one sizzling summer outfit, is my favourite! xxx
