In my opinion, kimonos are the easiest way to elevate a basic summer outfit. They can be the statement piece of your outfit that adds color and pattern and is easy to throw on or take off easily. A kimono is also the perfect layering piece for going out to dinner or a breezy summer evening where you might want just a tad bit of coverage to keep from getting too cool without having to layer on anything too thick (especially if you're like me and get cold super easily). They're also flattering on literally everyone! Wearing a tight, form fitting outfit? Throw on a kimono for some balance. Wearing a basic, super casual outfit? Throw on a kimono for some added pizzaz. Not to mention they're thin enough to easily pack in your suitcase or purse and take up hardly any space! Can you tell I'm a bit obsessed? Summer is all about flowy, comfy, and colorful pieces and kimonos make you look like you're look instantly put together. It's a win-win!
I hope you all are having a wonderful summer and feeling fabulous! I'd love to hear some of your favorite summer finds!
