I'm Freaking Out on How Cool the Kimono is for Summer

When somebody asks me what is this summer’s must-have essential, without a doubt I say the totally cool  kimono.

I’m totally freaking out on how cool the Kimono is for summer. Not only are they the perfect thing to wear on a summer day that’s not too hot they are also great to wear on a summer evening when things cool down a bit. They flutter through the breeze oh-so perfectly, and let’s be honest, they’re so damn pretty.

Inspired by traditional Japanese robes, contemporary kimonos have been given a modern update with prints, fringe, varying lengths and even varying sleeve types. What they all have in common though is that they add a delicate layer to your look plus they make you feel totally glamorous.

The kimono is also a total freaking wardrobe life-saver during the hot months. If your look feels a bit unfinished, toss on a kimono.

Wear them with just about anything in your closet. Toss over shorts and a top, with jeans and a tee or experiment with layering them over printed dresses like I did when I paired a floral kimono with a floral dress (click here). You can even drape a kimono over your swimsuit while at the beach—or rock it over a slinky slip dress for total boudoir vibes.

Shy about showing off your arms? A slightly sheer kimono is the perfect item to wear over a tank top but lightweight enough for a hot afternoon.

So wearable and totally versatile, this one great piece delivers a light layering effect, makes your shoulders look a bit more relaxed and your figure a whole lot slimmer.  Which is why it’s my top rated totally cool summer must-have.
