Simple ways to style your kimono


A kimono is a lightweight layering piece. It can be styled casually or dressed up and it can be worn for both formal and informal occasions. Kimonos come in all sorts of beautiful patterns, colors, and sizes. Some people however find it challenging to style their kimono jackets. Here are some tips on how to style your kimono:

  • Pair with accessories

Pair your kimono with accessories for a more chic look. A piece of statement jewelry, a fashionable but matching handbag, and matching heels, boots, or sneakers depending on the occasion. You can also pair it with a belt for a more defined look.

  • Consider the length

When purchasing a kimono, pick the right length for your body shape and height to avoid a dangly look. You can also choose the length of your kimono based on the occasion. For a formal occasion, you can opt for a longer length depending on the outfit you want to layer it with.

  • Layer with the right outfit

The type of outfit you layer your kimono with is essential for how your dressing turns out. You can wear your kimono like a lightweight jacket over a simple, but stunning evening dress or a pair of cute shorts and a simple T-shirt, when the weather is warm enough, or boyfriend-style jeans when you want to cover up a bit more, you can finish it off with a pair of flat sneakers.

  • Incorporate it into your pajamas

Wear a kimono over a pair of cozy pajama bottoms and a little t-shirt or wear it over a slinky nightie for an adorable bedtime look. Opt for a kimono made with silk for a more restful night’s sleep.

  • Experiment with colors

Kimonos come in different colors and patterns. It is essential to know what color complements your skin color. When purchasing a kimono pick a color that is compatible with your skin tone.

  • Wear it over your favorite swimsuit

Kimonos are versatile. You can look more stylish by pairing a kimono with your swimsuit. If you want to give your skin a break from the sun, add some cover by the pool, or add a little style to your swimsuit, then try layering your swimsuit with a kimono.
