Spring is in the air, and we’ve entered tricky jacket weather. That’s where kimonos come in. Kimonos have a low style degree of difficulty and an extremely high payoff. A personal favorite way to style them is with jeans, t-shirt and your favorite shoes. If you’re taking this approach, then think of the garment as the cherry on top of your outfit sundae. A shorter kimono also can act like an informal blazer, and even add a bit of shape to an outfit if it’s belted.
If money were no object, we would buy this Johanna Ortiz Western-inspired brocade number right now. Imagine swanning around in this with open in a jeans and t-shirt, or even tied as a dress. This summery terracotta colored option from Free People will make you feel like it’s already June. Eileen Fisher is having a resurgence and with pieces as cute as this pocketed number, it’s not a surprise.
