Iconic names in fashion like Prada and Pucci have been inspired this year by the fusion of modern eastern fashion. Kimonos, obi belts and ornate patterns are just the beginning. This year designers are experimenting with many traditional Japanese-inspired elements like structured architectural folds made out of silk and large floral statement prints. Even recent make-up trends on the runway are emulating the mysterious, pale faces of the traditional geisha style with dramatic dark eye make-up and iconic powdered white faces. Some things to look out for in order to add a little geisha inspired fashion into your wardrobe would be platform wedges, kimono jackets, golden bird prints and super embellished silk.

For a super sleek way to rock this look at the office we suggest opting for an architectural structured silk shift dress. The dress will channel the geisha inspired motif and when paired with a subtle but classic pair of heels it will be perfectly office appropriate. For a more laid back approach to the geisha inspired trend we suggest going for a maxi dress this has a print with an eastern flare. Pair this with a pair of platform wedges and a slightly undone low bun and you’ll be looking super trendy and effortlessly chic.
