As the temps go up, my favorite way to feel stylish and cool is by wearing a kimono, definitely a warm weather wardrobe workhorse! Over the past few years, I have built a fun collection since they will help me to feel confident in the most oppressive heat. I also love how well they work over a pant outfit or also over many dresses.
I must confess, though, that my husband is not a fan. He prefers a look with more fit and does not believe the kimonos (especially the longer ones) to be flattering at all. But, in summer heat and humidity, I often just want to feel confident and sometimes the looks with more fit are doing nothing but fitting around the sweat!! So, I try to make sure that the garments underneath fit well and are not too oversized. Usually, I wear a column of neutrals underneath but I broke it up this time just to be a little different.
My favorite kimonos are fom Soft Surroundings! I have several of them in my wardrobe. They are wardrobe workhorses for me duing the summer. I found some beauties for you to see in the slide show below. But first……………….
What do you think? Do you like the look of kimonos; or should I listen to my husband and do something else?
