When it comes to personal style, I’m all about no-fuss, yet chic, outfits. Throwing my braids in a bun, wearing a pair of leggings, a kimono and a pair of big hoops is “my thing”. It’s the kind of look that’s perfect for someone trying to achieve a minimal sense of style. You maybe looking at this outfit and thinking, “is she wearing another kimono?!” I’m guilty. But this time it’s a kimono from the men’s section. That counts for something, right?

So, how did I end up shopping in the men’s section? After seeing fellow Lifestyle Blogger Sam – AKA my kindred spirit – style a black and white men’s kimono, I had to know where I could find it! I frantically searched the ASOS website, found it in the men’s section, yet fell in love with the simplicity and versatility of the kimono worn in this post. I knew that I’d get more wear out of a solid kimono, so I opted to purchase this one instead.
The material of the kimono is heavy enough to be worn throughout the fall and versatile enough to be styled multiple times. It can easily be styled over a casual dress, a tank top, or a light weight t-shirt as shown in this look. This minimal style purchase is certainly one I do not regret.
So tell me, do you ever shop in the men’s section? What do you think about my latest minimal style purchase? Let me know!
Thanks for reading and commenting! Until next time, be blessed and stay safe…XO!

Comfy and cute is the way to go! 😉 Thanks, Roni!
Love this minimal look and kimonos are so versatile! I have shopped Men’s – sometimes they are less expensive than the women’s department.

Great find and you look very chic! I have shopped Mens before for a plaid shirt. Great idea and thanks for the reminder that there are finds to be had in the Mens clothing Dept.
Love this kimono outfit! I actually always forget to check out the men’s section. I will have to remind myself to check it out next time!
Great look! A minimalist look can be perfect for any occasion. Thanks for sharing!
Hello Whitney, I must say, you have a lovely smile. I just love your kimonos. It looks cute after wearing. I feel so cool after wearing it and also it is easy to carry. This blog is too good and fascinating.
