If your kimonos have taken up permanent residence at the back of your closet, it’s time to get creative using tips on what to wear with your kimono:
Skirt and Tank Top
The classic skirt and tank top combination works great with a long necklace and sandals, but a kimono can really pull your outfit together. Go for a floral kimono to enhance the femininity of your outfit.
A playsuit is perfect for more muted kimonos such as those with a subtle pattern. Create contrast by playing around with textures and colours - try pairing a black velvet playsuit with a peach silk kimono, for example.
If you don’t want to wear a kaftan at the beach, a kimono can be a great way of providing cover and a hint of skin once you’re out of the water.
Pair your kimono with a gypsy top, flares or wide-leg jeans for a boho look with a 70s vibe. Crochet kimonos and those with tassels are best for this look.
T-Shirt and Jeans
Dress up the classic t-shirt and jeans combination with a colourful, floaty kimono and matching long necklace. A graphic tee makes your outfit effortlessly casual and is a great talking point.
Another great feminine use for the kimono is pairing it with a summer dress - preferably knee-length so neither item overpowers the other. For a striking look, opt for a plain white or cream dress and pair with a bright, floral kimono.
Wearing all-black with a dark, patterned kimono is a stylish option that’s not too feminine. A longer kimono goes great with leggings while shorter ones allow you to hold all the attention at the top half of your body.
