Trendspotting: Kimono Jackets

Nearly everyday, I wear either a sweater or blazer to work.  Polished and professional, it's convenient to throw one on and have a complete look, but it can get so boring! Black blazer... black sweater... white sweater... white blazer... it's quite monotonous.  That's why I'm loving the idea of wearing a kimono jacket instead!

 From left: Nicole Richie in a white Winter Kate "Rogue" top paired with a black cami and Textile Elizabeth and James "Billy" jeans, with a snakeskin clutch, bangles and statement ring by Loren, and a Kathy Rose for Roseark carved manta ray necklace.  Nicky Hilton in a kimono-inspired jacket, faded black jeans, strappy heels and jewelry from her own line.
In fun colors and prints, it's conservatively cut yet definitely makes a bold statement.  It's an easy way to add some interest to your wardrobe!  Though Nicole and Nicky are wearing it with jeans above, it will look just as great over a top and slacks. 

Here are some similar styles to make it your own:
