Layering creates new look for old clothing

Ching-Ya Ni, 19, a UF sophomore, masters the art of boho chic in this fun and versatile school ensemble. Her layered look adds new flair to pieces found in her closet. Ni says she doesn't follow trends, but she can't wait to pull out her fall clothing this season. Try looking through your closet and pairing clothing together in new ways to create a look for fall. Adding colored tights underneath flowing dresses or shorts takes a summer look and transforms it for the winter. Also, play with different sizes of belts and boots to add a little edge to the ensemble. Mix and match different accessories that will keep your outfits looking fresh for the entire season.

Fashioning Kimono: Now on display at the Harn Museum of Art

A flurry of colors and designs ranging from cartoon floral prints to men on fishing boats adorn the kimonos now on display at the Harn Museum. One "little boy kimono" is embellished with images of battle ships and airplanes flying over water, which signifies the mark of World War II. Many of the women's kimonos display vibrant colors and geometric shapes. These were to mimic the idea of "art deco," influenced from Western culture. Fashioning Kimono, the exhibit flaunting numerous types of kimonos, dates from the late 19th century to early 20th century.
