I’m a big fan of the kimono (if you can’t tell they’re worn here, here and here). They’re lightweight and they add an easy layer to your summer outfits. Layers are a great way to show that you can put together an outfit and not just wear clothes…if that makes sense. Kimonos are your summer layering go to because they’re thin and full of prints and colors to match the happiness of the new season!

I’ve noticed that my collection has grown lately so I thought now would be a good time to pass some inspo on. Here are some ideas to inspire you!

4 Cute and Chic Ways to Wear a Kimono

1. with a cami + denim shorts
This look is really easy! Perfect for those days when you want to look cute but don’t want to put too much effort into it. You can always jazz up the look with some accessories such as a round bag, statement necklace, or a belt. Related: 6 Ways to Wear Your Denim Shorts This Summer

2. with a tank dress + heels
Kimonos can be dressy too! Longer ones give it more of an elegant look when paired with heels.

3. with a white tee + boyfriend jeans + mules
I like the casual chic vibe when a silky kimono is paired with a basic tee and ripped jeans. Mules add some height and style! Related: 5 Denim Styles to Try that Aren’t Skinny Jeans

4. all black + block heels
Let the colors of your kimonos shine for themselves by pairing them with all black. Very chic!

They’re my favorite to wear when I want to throw something easy on to complete a look or when I feel like I want a little bit more coverage.

What’s your favorite thing about kimonos?
