How to Perfectly Wear Your Kimono Dress: A Step-by-Step Guide

At Atelier Mizuni, we’re passionate about creating clothing that not only looks good but feels good to wear and is kind to the planet. Our kimono dresses are a perfect example of this philosophy in action. Drawing inspiration from the traditional Japanese kimono, we’ve reimagined this iconic garment for the modern wardrobe. Our designs maintain the simplicity and versatility of their inspiration while being tailored for contemporary lifestyles.

The Kimono Dress Experience

Crafted from sustainable linen, these dresses are as gentle on the environment as they are on your skin. Linen is known for its durability, comfort, and breathability, making it an ideal choice for our collection. Moreover, we’re proud to say that each dress is ethically produced in small factories in Bali, where artisans work in safe, supportive conditions and are paid fairly for their skilled craftsmanship.


Styling Your Kimono Dress with the Obi Belt

Now, let’s talk about how to wear your kimono dress with the obi belt that accompanies each piece. This belt is not just an accessory; it’s a transformative element that allows you to customize the fit and look of your dress. Here’s how to tie your kimono dress for a snug yet comfortable fit:

  1. Slip into Your Dress: Begin by wearing your dress, crossing one front side over the other. This is your base layer, ready for styling.
  2. Position the Obi Belt: Wrap the obi belt around your waist, adjusting its position according to your preference. Placing it higher can create a more defined silhouette, but the choice is yours.
  3. Cross at the Back: Take the ends of the belt to the back, crossing them to form an X shape. This is where you can adjust the tightness to your liking, think of it as a corset, ensuring the dress has secure fit yet comfortable.
  4. Secure the Front: Bring the ends back to the front, tying them into a knot to secure the belt in place. For added security and style, tie another knot or a bow. This not only ensures the belt stays in place but also adds a decorative touch to your outfit.
  5. Make Adjustments: Finally, make any necessary adjustments to ensure the dress fits perfectly. The beauty of the obi belt is its flexibility, allowing you to customize the fit to your body.
