One of my favorite pieces to keep in my capsule wardrobes as we transition from winter to spring is a flowy, feminine kimono. It still gives that sense of being a little covered up while we’re all rocking the pasty pale winter skin that has yet to see the sun, but the fabrics and prints are lighter, giving us hope for the warmer weather and bright blooms to come! Below I’ve styled three different kimonos in three different ways: super casual, shorts-appropriate and date night out!
OBSESSED with this embroidered, light-weight, one size fits all kimono from Sole Society, and, although I’m no green thumb, I’ll rock embroidered flowers any day! 😉 This kimono is so gorgeous in person, you guys. Total scroll stopper. Paired it with some seriously upgraded denim (crazy secret pockets that hold everything locked and loaded in the tummy area!) and these comfy, versatile clog mules, too! Jeans and shoes fit TTS (true to size).
Another way to wear a spring kimono is with some distressed denim and sandals! Gives this casual summery, springy look a flowy, feminine vibe, and it adds a light layer for when you go from blazing hot OUTside to the freeeeeezing cold indoors when the AC gets cranked up, ha! Neutral layers, comfy espadrille flats (fit true to size!) and the most adorable round crossbody bag you ever did see. Love!
The third way I like to style kimonos is for a more dressed up look maybe when I’m headed out with my girlfriends or on a date night with my main squeeze. 😉 All black base layer is slimming and neutral, and then a gorgeous, soft kimono adds a bit of pop…but keeps any extra fluff in the arms or midsection nicely draped and disguised. (I.e. this outfit lets me eat as much as I want at dinner without giving away my full tummy afterwards, ha!) This kimono is older, but I linked two similar styles below, and these black leather-like leggings are seriously the best I’ve ever had.
What about you guys? Ever rock a floral, flowy, feminine kimono with your outfits? Which look above is more your style: casual, shorts or dressy? Let me know whatcha think in the comments, buddies!
