17 Kimono Styles You’d Love!

When you think of a kimono, the first image that pops into your mind probably isn’t a long, sheer, cardigan-type piece of clothing. When I first heard that kimono jackets were a big trend for spring and summer, I was a little confused myself, because I immediately imagined the traditional Japanese garment and I was concerned for the fashion world.

But the kimono jackets that you’ve been seeing everywhere are really nothing like a Japanese kimono. While I can’t say that I can always see why they got this name, I can say that I love them. Kimono jackets or cardigans (or whatever you want to call them) are amazing. They’re perfect for warmer weather because they’re light and airy, but still cover you up if you’re chilly or you just want something on your shoulders. They come in all sorts of beautiful patterns, and they can be worn with absolutely everything. I have a long one with fringe that has an elephant pattern, and it’s one of my favorite spring items.

Want to incorporate these into your wardrobe? You definitely should! Here are 20 style tips on how to wear kimono jackets and look fabulous:

 

1. Make a skirt and tank combo more interesting by adding a colorful kimono.
