The number one thing I recommend to my styling clients is to consider versatility when tossing up whether to purchase an item or not. Selecting a piece which can be dressed up or down is the key to nailing that CPW (cost per wear) and ensuring a wardrobe which works for all seasons and occasions. A great example of a versatile piece is a Kimono - it can be styled to work any occasion, from lounge wear to a beach cover up to casual wear through to event.
This Autumn/Winter I am revisiting my love for Kimono's with the Eb&ive Lucia Kimono. This kimono is the perfect trans-seasonal piece - light weight, easy to throw on and comes in a soft and cohesive colour palette which works with a wide range of tones. I've styled this two different ways to show just how versatile it is!
