The Summer Kimono

The Summer Kimono

Summer travel is in full swing and I have come to the conclusion that I always over pack. After spending a week and half in New England I realized I only wore a fraction of what I brought. During my trips back home 95% of the time I am in a bathing suit at the beach. Or if I’m not at the beach I prefer the comforts of breezy summer basics. LESSON LEARNED. Cue in the kimono…

I love the look and ease of a kimono for the summer.  I can throw it over my bathing suit during the day and over a simple tank and skirt at night without feeling constricted. The kimono is also an effortless way to add color and print to your outfit. Ok, ladies – I highly suggested adding a kimono to your summer wardrobe essentials.

If you’re short or average height like me opt for a short kimono. If you have legs for days or just want a glamorous-look go for a long kimono. Shop my picks of short and long kimonos.
