Kimono/ Robe Trend

Is this trend making us realize that Hugh Hefner has always had it right?

As a fashion lover I am always on the lookout for the latest trends and the “have to have it” items to add a little pop to my usual tee and denim outfits.
You can imagine my reaction when I started seeing bloggers wearing kimono/robes all over the media. I NEEDED one despite the fact that I am a 5”4 short gal, and was not sure they would even look good on me.

I started stalking every website trying to find the ONE and thankfully found it at Zara (duh!). By the way, am I the only one who compulsively checks their page looking at their “New In” section every day? Seriously, Zara never disappoints! They have come out with quite a variety of long and short kimono/robes in the most beautiful prints. Is it obvious that I am still not sure what to call them?! For the sake of this post, I will call them… well… kimono/robes 🙂

The one I am wearing here is perfect for me because it is a little shorter than the other designs they are selling, and the 3/4 sleeves make it look not so big on me.

I won’t lie; I really wanted the longer ones to fit me, especially this bright green with the floral print. Sadly even the smallest size looked huge on me, despite the fact that the S/M fit just right in the style I kept. I know… Zara’s sizing is very inconsistent, which really sucks!!! But I still love them.


Regardless, I am loving this trend and will probably end up getting another kimono/robe in the very near future.
So what do you think about this kimono/robe? Would you buy it?
