Adding a Splash of Color with KimonosWoman wearing kimono with bright print.

Add a splash of color to your summer wardrobe by finding a vibrant kimono. Bright floral, leaf, butterfly, and waterfall prints are trending this summer. A kimono adds a stylish, boho vibe to your outfit. Oversized prints add a whole new element to your look with hardly any effort. Keep the rest of your look super simple, and let your kimono do the talking.

Style Tip – Indulge your bohemian style with a bright and stylish kimono, simple t-shirt and trendy shorts for your dinner date. Accessorize with a chunky necklace and big earrings to finish off the look to perfection.

Kimonos as a Cover Up

The next time you’re heading to the beach, don’t hide your new swimsuit with a towel. Instead, arrive in style by using a kimono as a cover-up. Kimonos add style to your swimsuit, boost your confidence, and give your skin a break from the sun. Consider crochet and lace kimonos for layering over swimsuits. More stylish than a kaftan, and more contemporary than a sarong, a kimono gives your swimsuit extra fashion cred.

Style Tip – Flaunt a fashionable look with a trendy, long kimono on the beach. Complete the look with beach jewelry, an oversized straw hat, and glamorous shades.

Speaking of versatile, you can wear a kimono for a casual look or for dressing up. A great example of a dressy look is pairing a solid maxi dress with a printed kimono. Add a simple necklace for some sparkle, and you’re set for any formal occasion.

Style Tip – Coordinate skinny black jeans and a plain black t-shirt, tucked in to show off your silhouette. Cover up with a colorful kimono, slip on a pair of heels and statement accessories, such as tassel earrings and a chic necklace.

It’s All About Balance

If you want to try a floor-sweeping kimono, pair it with shorts and high-heeled booties for a winning formula. The same goes for a mid-length kimono paired with a maxi skirt and top.

Don’t Be Afraid To Express Yourself

Just like any trend, always strive to make it your own. There’s not one correct way to wear a kimono. And by experimenting, you just might start a trend of your own! Start shopping for kimonos and make your own style statement.
