Styling a Kimono in the Summer
First things first: I actually bought this kimono to wear over my swimsuits at the beach. And I did wear it that way! But I also love to throw it on over a fitted tank and my favorite high-waisted shorts. Really, it might be my favorite piece of clothing that I picked up this summer! (Except, of course, THESE.)
Now, y’all know I do not like summer…and I don’t really like to wear shorts. Oddly enough, I’ve worn these shorts more this summer than I have in my adult life! Like…I even bought a second pair in a darker wash. Who am I?!
Ok, back to that kimono: I tried out the kimono trend almost exactly a year ago. I love the comfort of a kimono, but I didn’t love the satin-y fabric. So, when I found this breezy black and white kimono, I knew I wanted it. This one is truly SO versatile! I wore it in this post over my black bikini, on our vacation over multiple swimsuits, and just like this more than one time. Yes, I’m an outfit repeater.
Actually, in that post from last year I’m wearing the same shorts, too. That just goes to show you that finding a staple piece that you’re comfortable in is worth the investment! Those were the first high-quality pair of shorts that I paid full price for. Worth. It. They’re at least a year and a half old and are in excellent shape!
We’re about a month out from the first official day of fall, so my next question is: can I style this breezy kimono in a transitional outfit? It’ll be hot here into the fall, so I feel like it is an excellent piece for a 90-degree fall. I’ll start working on that!
