In the summertime, I am a huge fan of kimono style. Since I wear a lot of basics and a lot of black, kimonos can add a little je ne sais quoi to an outfit, pulling it together and elevating it. Kimonos can also be a comfy addition, a cover-up for the beach or on a hot day. They can also add a bohemian vibe to your outfit and can be worn year round – over dresses, jeans, shorts, bikinis, anything really!
My favourite way to wear a kimono is over basic black (which I wear a lot of), with skinny jeans and a simple tank or tee, and then throwing on a lightweight kimono makes it an outfit, suddenly. Heels or flat sandals, and I’m ready to go! It’s an awesome way of adding colour or pattern to an outfit, without feeling overwhelmed.
Kimonos can be feminine and functional as a cover-up or wrap. They’re a little flirty, and come in various lengths, colours and patterns. If you’re new to kimonos, start simple. Choose a colour or pattern that you’re comfortable with, and choose a cardigan length one, which is a little shorter than the one pictured here.
My favourite places to find kimonos are on my travels. One day I’ll go to Japan and find a few authentic kimonos, but until then, I’ve found them on my travels in Tel Aviv, Los Angeles, and even Toronto. This pink beauty is from Art of Marina and each kimono is a print of Marina’s artwork.
I’m currently giving away an Art of Marina kimono on my instagram – head over here to enter before the giveaway ends!
