Wear a Kimono with Summer Shorts
A kimono’s the perfect layer since it won’t weigh you down. While the sun’s still out to play, take your shorts and tan-fit to the next level with a bright and breezy kimono as a layering piece. The addition of a paisley or floral-printed kimono brings a boho touch to your ensemble.
Stylist Tip: “If you’re shy about showing off your arms, a slightly sheer kimono is the perfect item to wear over a tank top but lightweight enough for a hot afternoon.”—Baylee G.
Layer a Kimono over an LBD
Transition a casual LBD from day to night. Add a romantic, floral kimono paired with strappy wedges or heels. Then, play with proportions by layering on a duster-length kimono over an above-the-knee dress.
Stylist Tip: “I wore a kimono as an added layer to up my style game when I was pregnant. Plus, kimonos can be worn before, during and after a pregnancy!”—Erika L.
Style a Kimono with White Denim
Spruce up your go-to jeans and tee with a kimono. If you love your casual basics, try layering an embroidered kimono to add more depth and texture to your most reliable outfit.
Stylist Tip: “Kimonos are a great layering alternative if you usually usually rely on an unbuttoned chambray shirt as a cover-up.”—Sheri F.
