What's nice about Kimonos and Mandarin collared coats are that they have luxurious fabrics and can be worn with great versatility and can be dressed up or down.
In the first set of photos, I chose to style my lovely kimono as a dress (but you can also wear it as a top or loose coat) and added a neutral belt to give it a waist. I paired it with knee-high Italian stretch suede boots with a stiletto heel from Donald J. Pliner. Then, I added a brown vintage bag and Gucci sunglasses to match my shoes. Additionally, I found these beautiful cream circle shaped earrings with a pretty design on them almost like a picture (featured in a close up photo above). As you can see, Retro Reload has quality unique pieces of clothing and jewelry. Just another reason to love them so much:)
In the second set of photos, I chose to style a beautiful cream Mandarin collar brocade coat with fringe tassels. This material is so luxurious and has some shine to it, so you can choose to dress it up with a pair of slacks or with a skirt and heels. Today, I chose to style a more casual look. I added a neutral belt to give it a waist and some matching accenting pieces in gold, blue, and pumpkin to bring out the details in the coat. These pants are from La Bijou and fit snug like a legging (but with thicker material) which fits perfectly with these brown boots. I also added an earthy pumpkin colored leather flap bag from Tano and these gold bauble vintage earrings to bring out the pumpkin and gold in the jacket. Lastly, the pink Dior glasses add that extra pop!
If you are looking for a pleasant way to spend your day, plan a visit to Retro Reload where they have a wide selection of unique vintage pieces and dazzling accessories to make your outfit pop.
Retro Reload isn't just another shopping destination, trust me, it's a Memorable Shopping Experience:)
