How to wear a Kimono Sleeve Top

My Kimono Sleeve Tops are my brand heroes: innovative, luxurious and versatile.

“These things you ought to bear in mind always: buy good things only and never be afraid of wearing them too often or of not ‘being in style.’ If you have good clothes, in good taste, you will always be chic and you can ignore passing fads”

Elsa Schiaparelli (1890-1973) - Italian fashion designer


Worried about throwaway fashion?

I have a huge problem with disposable fashion but used to feel self-conscious about wearing something too frequently.   However, investing in a good quality capsule wardrobe, I want to wear my things over and over. That was the point of the investment, right?

Plus, this is the way I create my signature look. I have a weakness for colourful bold embellishments and would encourage anyone to build up an accessories collection over the years.  I like the fact that people recognise this as my signature look.

The trick is to stay with simple shapes that never go out of fashion and rely statement accessories to add pizzazz and personality.

Do I get bored with the same old things? No! It’s almost like a magical wardrobe, only better because it’s familiar and I know it works. 

The Bianca Elgar Kimono Sleeve Top can be worn as a top, a scarf or a bolero.

Easy to wear, easy to pack.

A tube top is a great investment piece. It is made from 100% High Quality Twill Silk. You can wear it in a variety of ways:

  1. Make a style statement with kimono-style sleeves. Wear a tube top on its own or with a fitted top or dress underneath.
  2. A bolero jacket goes with everything. Convert by wearing with the centre section slung over the shoulders
  3. Knot around the neck as a rather special silk scarf
