OOTD: The Kimono

This warm weather has got us re-thinking our entire wardrobe, and it’s the perfect excuse reason to splurge on seasonal pieces and trends. In our search to spice up our closets, we’ve fallen in love with one trend in particular: the kimono. While it might seem costumey at times, the kimono is the perfect summer statement piece – easy to style, bold, and perfect to help stay cool (pun intended).

We love these three styles because they add so much by doing so little. All three are versatile and can be styled with a t-shirt and shorts (as seen above), or even with a maxi dress for a more boho look or a short dress for an evening date night out. We went the more casual way for a lunch date (as seen on our instagram) and used the kimono as the statement piece of our outfit, dressing up the classic white-tee and jeans combo.

This will definitely be our go-to style for the rest of the summer. We’ve already received compliments on our kimonos, and we promise you will too! What do you think of the trend? Let us know if you try it out and how you styled it!
