Happy Thursday! Today, we are covering to think kimonos for fun, cool summer outfits.
Summertime is really kimono time for me….and though I have tweaked my style, kimonos are still a major component in the closet.
I have made a few changes in how I shop for kimonos and will mention those today.
But, think kimonos not only for summer outfits, but also as swimsuit coverups or even robes when traveling.
Think kimonos for versatility…I do that often.
So, let’s go forward with my thoughts to help you…think kimonos.
THINK KIMONOS: FOR FUN
I have told you before that San Antonio is a colorful, artistic community. This downtown mural is a perfect example.
One of my style adjectives is to always look creative. This would be the same as looking artistic or dramatic with your style.
We are the ones most likely to think kimonos…though there are beautiful ones in neutral designs.
The kimono I am wearing today is from Soft Surroundings. This is the Curacao Topper in an XL, and currently is on sale for $39!
I do not make a dime off of Soft Surroundings and am not their affiliate, but it is such a colorful, fun topper that I wanted to share it with you…especially when I saw the markdown.
My grandson who loves parrots was the first in my family to say they liked it!
Also, this one goes great in my autumn wardrobe….I love the burnt orange long tank under it and the trim detail.
Of course, you will notice how many kimonos are called ruanas, toppers, long cardigans…there are many categories to think kimono as you look over them.
THINK KIMONOS: TO BE COOL
Most kimonos are designed for warmer weather and are perfect to cover arms for us stylish over 50 ladies.
I think kimonos, and have for years, when things begin to heat up and I am looking to elevate a casual look.
They are perfect to wear to pool parties or outdoor barbecues and be one of the ones in the coolest summer outfits there.
I have changed how I shop for kimonos since I began to lose weight and desire a better fit.
I look for more design that alleviates some of the boxy feel, and I usually size down when shopping for them.
I also look mostly now for mid to shorter lengths…and not as many long ones. I own a few and currently prefer the fit of the shorter lengths on me.
But, I still love a flowy romantic feel of many kimonos.
Here are some kimonos I recently found available…these may help you to think kimonos for your own style:
THINK KIMONOS FOR UNIQUE STYLE
Some of the prettiest kimonos I have seen are neutrals…I know not everyone goes for this type of color explosion.
But, any woman can think kimonos for unique style…it just depends are what your style adjectives are and what you want to tell those you meet this summer about you with what you wear.
A fabulous kimono can enhance your wardrobe and make your summer outfits uniquely you.
Do any of you think kimonos for summer? Please share your questions or comments…and make sure that throughout this day, you …..
