Sheer Silk Multicolored Dots and Stripes Kimono Sleeve Top, 1970s
Lightweight, flowing fabrics have quickly become a trendy staple, especially when they showcase a creative color or print. Drawing inspiration from the loose cascading silhouettes from the hippie fashion movement married with the psychedelic 1970s prints and patterns, this burnout silk chiffon cape of blue violet is designed with a white striped motif of varying widths streaking across the garment, as shimmery purple stiped run vertically creating a mock plaid.
Green and white dots float about the cape adding a fun, fleeting effervescence to the design. The cape has oversized kimono style sleeves that engulf the wearer in the majestically draped chiffon insinuating a relaxed elegance. Multifunctional, this silk cape can be worn with a tank and jeans, as a striking swim cover up or even over a chic slip dress. The translucence of the fabric is sure to create interesting optical effects when paired with any wardrobe staples.
