Kimonos come a long way from their roots in Japanese tradition. Fast emerging as a staple of everyday style, it’s hard to tell whether “kimono” is a trend, or simply a buzzword thrown at any loose fit, woven, wrap-front topper. Regardless of the specifics, kimonos are a smart way to finish off lots of looks, while adding something unique to help you stand out from the style pack. Here are five different kimono styles to help you tackle any situation.
1. H&M: Reptile Print Kimono
This knee length kimono is cut from light, airy fabric that features allover reptile print. Outfitted with a self-tie belt, it looks great over tight shorts and low cut blouses.
2. H&M: Floral Patterned Kimono
Long and loose, this floral print kimono is an easy way to dress up basics and slims your figure. Side pockets and a tie belt make it functional on top of being stylish.
3. ANGIE: Velvet Burnout Kimono With Crochet Hem
A soft and light texture, velvet adorned accents and a delicate crochet hemline make this printed kimono just posh enough to be office-appropriate. This richly-styled piece can turn a simple tank-top and jeans into a work or date night outfit.
4. TRINA TURK: St. Tropez Kimono Cover Up
Bold colorblock print breathes life into this short and stretchy kimono. Wear it as a swimsuit coverup, or with a bralette and boyshorts for summer street style.
5. HELMUT LANG: Silk Kimono Blouse
Crafted from floral print silk into an elegant silhouette, this kimono blouse slims problematic midsections and allows comfortable motion without looking too casual.
