Kimonos are a great way to add instant style to a plain or simple outfit. Kimonos are also great for keeping your shoulders warm while wearing a sundress or to keep your legs warm while wearing shorts, especially inside air conditioned buildings when it’s hot outside. Depending on where you live, kimonos can be worn year round. Also a kimono is a great piece to take on your warm weather vacation for a pool or beach cover up.
Today I am focusing on wearing your kimono for these last warm days of summer and warm weather. Depending on where you live, you may have warm days for awhile, past the last official days of summer. Lucky for you, your kimono wearing days can be extended into fall. The kimono that I am wearing in all of these photos is from a local boutique. Unfortunately, the kimono is no longer available, so I found some similar kimonos for you to look at. Some of them are even on sale!
Kimono with a Sundress
The first way to style a kimono is super easy! Just wear your favorite t-shirt dress with your kimono on top! I chose this light blue striped dress that I also got from a local boutique. A solid color t-shirt dress would look great with a patterned kimono too! This is a great look for day or night. It can be dressed down or up depending on your shoes and accessories. I think it is a perfect out to dinner look for a date night or a girls night out.
Kimono with Shorts and a Tank
The next way to effortlessly style your kimono for warm weather is to wear your favorite pair of shorts with a tank or short sleeved tee. The kimono over the top will give your arm and shoulders warmth while indoors or while taking an evening stroll by the breezy waters edge. You can also dress up your shorts and tee with jewelry and sparkly sandals!
Different Shoe Option with Kimono and Shorts
Here’s the same shorts and tank top outfit with some blue wedges and a straw sun hat. It’s another versatile way to style your kimono with your shorts for a casual yet polished look while sightseeing on vacation or just running errands. This would also be a great look to wear to an outdoor festival.
Kimono as a Swimsuit Cover Up
The last way to style your summer or vacation kimono is over your swimsuit as a cover up. The kimono is an easy and stylish cover up over your swim suit at the beach or the pool. Add your favorite sunglasses and flip flops and your are good to go! You will no doubt look and feel confident in your chic kimono swimwear style.
