3 Ways to Wear | The Kimono

The Kimono

No longer just a beachside cover-up, the kimono is a versatile addition to your summer wardrobe. Here’s how we styled it 3 ways.


Outfit One



Wear your kimono as a statement jacket for work or play by layering it over a smart outfit. Head-to-toe colour (ideally in black or white) works best underneath, which creates a slick streamlined look that lets the kimono do the talking. Make sure your top is fitted to keep the focus on the kimono’s voluminous shape, but do try a wide leg trouser, as long as you pair with sky-high heels to balance out your silhouette.

Outfit Two



Perfect for throwing on over swimwear when meandering down to the pool, or as a light layer when exploring the local delights, the kimono is a holiday suitcase must-have. Pack an array of colour coordinating camis and tees to pair with your trusty short and sandal combination for easy summer style. Then dress your kimono up in the evening with statement jewellery to show off glowing skin.

Outfit Three



For those off-duty days, inject a bit of glamour into your look by belting your kimono over your favourite jeans and trainers. Keep your accessories minimal here so they don’t argue with the belt, and make a statement with a large shopper (also great for carrying everything for/on your errands). If you’re heading for brunch with friends, switch out your trainers for a pair of wedges and a clutch bag.
