Styling a Kimono Jacket !

If you’re looking to update your staple cardigan, the popular kimono jacket trend may be something to consider.  It’s a bright, breezy and comfortable way to finish  a look this summer into early fall and can be worn a variety of different ways.

The kimono jacket is also figure forgiving if you wear it right.  While they can traditionally be loose and flowy, in order to not look too big and boxy, pair this jacket with slimmer wardrobe items like skinny jeans, shorts, slim khakis or as a finishing piece for a shift dress or pencil skirt.

One of the easiest ways to wear a kimono jacket is to wear it with a solid column of color underneath.  Not only does the kimono get to take center stage, but the slimming monochromatic look layered beneath it slenderizes.

As a cardigan replacement, a printed kimono jacket does the same job while adding a little more interest to the look.  Here, the soft navy print complements the peach for a subtle, yet sophisticated casual look.

When worn with a khaki or an olive drab, you can totally change the look to more of a retro military look.

For more of a summer look, this kimono jacket adds light novelty layering on a hot day.  By working with the colors found in the print of your kimono, you can look for colors to use as a punch in your accessories.
