This smooth brown kimono from Kimono Honoka shows that even the most simple iromuji (solid patternless) kimono can really shine when paired with a colorful obi!
It’s paired with a simple hanhaba (half width) obi, no obijime, no obiage, but the soft tan eri collar and beige straps on the zori makes the whole outfit feel warm, earthy and soft. The kimono itself is a cotton/wool blend so its delicate earthiness is indeed real!
How does this outfit feel so gentle? I think the secret is in the warm reds and oranges in the obi, which might be too bold or messy with most patterned kimono. But here those little flowers have room to shine.
