Chinatown is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in New York City, and it has become increasingly important to the fashion industry in the past few years. This neighborhood is a creative hub, and houses the studios of many designers, photographers, jewelers, and floral artists. Jane Shuai is an incredible jeweler whose store is in Chinatown, and her designs have been worn by Beyonce and Bella Hadid. Additionally, photographer Ryan McGinely and the designers of Eckhaus Latta have their studios in Chintatown. However, Chinatown is also a great place to get authentic-looking knockoffs and other affordable, fashionable pieces.I wanted to do an episode of Aimee on a Budget in Chinatown because I thought it would be fun to look for stylish pieces with a cool, downtown vibe. I ended up finding this blue kimono-style piece (under $50 similar here and here) and a pair of white embroidered kitten heels slides (similar here). I styled them with an H&M white t-shirt and my EB Demin jeans.
I have been an avid kimono fans for many years and my favorite way of styling it is with a t-shirt and a pair of jeans. It is a perfect transitional piece for fall as it is lightweight and easy to throw on. Here are some of the best kimonos for fall:
1. Free People Mint Kimono
2. & Other Stories White Kimono
3. Topshop Green Kimono (Similar silk kimono here)
4. Topshop Pink Blossom Kimono
5. House of Harlow 1960 x Revolve Kimono
6. Urban Outfitters Reversible Kimono
