A kimono is one of the hardest working items in my closet. It’s so versatile! Whether you’re rocking it with your favorite jeans and t-shirt, lounging around in it as a bathing suit coverup, or tie it around your waist for a more finished look, it’s like getting a three-for-one. So below, I rounded up my favorite summer kimonos for you guys to shop.
It’s also versatile stylistically – no matter what your vibe is, there’s a matching kimono! Let’s start with some choices for the bohemian babes out there. This is a great way to add a blast of color or pattern to your regular neutral wardrobe. This Corey Lynn Carter kimono is a punchy, tropical number in a riot of complementary colors.
On the slightly more glamorous side, this pale pink and orange colorblock robe is extra-long and extra-beautiful. Get in on this season’s bandana trends with this silky kimono that looks like it’s been made out of beautiful scarves.
The exaggerated shape of a cocoon kimono is always fun, and great for people looking for a shorter cut. I love this blue-and-yellow lemon themed one from Anthropologie, as well as the pretty pastel shades used in the variety of this floral kimono.
There are plenty of more minimal options that are still colorful, just in a more streamlined way. This navy and white printed kaftan from Mango is a little bit sheer with interesting dropped seam sleeves, and I love the empire-waist tie detail. This mauve Anthropologie tie-dye kimono uses Japanese influences for a subtle, faded take on tie-dye.
If you feel like splurging, this Johnny Was patchwork kimono takes floral prints to a whole new level with patches of florals from all over the world. It’s totally global, and a worthy investment piece.
