A Quick How-To Guide for the Essential Summer Jacket: The Kimono


 
The kimono, a.k.a. the ultimate summer jacket. This festival staple has taken the streets by storm this season. It’s light, versatile, and gives any outfit an effortless touch of Bohemia.
 
Why We Love It
 
Besides the aforementioned reasons, one of the best parts about the kimono is that it looks good on everybody, and every body. Whether you’re tall, petite, apple-shaped, pear-shaped, curvy or somewhere in between, the kimono is universally flattering. We also love that the vast amount of styles, lengths and cuts make it a trendy staple to upgrade your best looks.
 
 
How to Wear It:
 
Pair it with a skirt and tank
 
Tucking your favorite tank into a flowy or circle midi skirt creates a Boho look that’s been an essential summer outfit for the past couple of years. To refresh the style, throw a kimono on for a casual-chic look. Bonus: They also look amazing with sundresses!
 
Use it As a Bathing Suit Cover Up!
 
Kimonos come in both open and tied styles, short and long lengths, and practically every color and print imaginable, so they make the perfect beach or poolside coverup for every taste.
 
Dress up Classic White Tee + Jean Shorts
 
For another way to give a classic look new life, find a kimono in a fun print to wear over your white tee. The color scheme of the classic outfit is so basic that it goes with anything, so pick a print that you love, like floral or paisley.
 
Tie in Your Favorites
 
Pair cropped jeans with your favorite graphic tee and sunhat, then add a neutral-colored kimono, for a casual beach vibe. This super comfy outfit is perfect for the weekend!
