Breezy and billowy, kimonos are a chic summer alternative to staple lightweight cardigans. This thin topper is made from polyester or breathable rayon and is often semi-opaque. Beloved by boho-babes for years, this stylish addition is now carving its place in everyone’s closet.
Whether you’re a festival fan or prefer a more streamlined look, try these three suggestions for wearing this warm weather trend:
- Extra coverage: If you prefer to downplay your arms but love stylish tanks for hot and humid summer days, layer a kimono over a simple tank and pair it with distressed boyfriend jeans and t-strap sandals.
- Adds a pop of color: We love all-black looks for winter but summertime calls for crisp and classic white from head-to-toe. Wear a white eyelet top paired with crisp white jeans and layer with a bright botanical printed kimono and long pendant necklace.
- Convertible cover-up: Easily packable, a kimono is a chic alternative to a traditional cover-up. Wear one in a colorful kaleidoscope print over your swimsuit for lunch by the pool or slip one on with a pair of cut-off shorts and a tank for grabbing shaved ice.
Armed with these tips, a kimono will quickly become your new summer staple!
