1 Trend, 3 Ways: The Kimono

by Elizabeth McGuffin

Summer is the season of leisure and play. The humidity and heat call for breezy, comfort-driven pieces. It’s no surprise then that the kimono keeps cycling back into fashion summer after summer. The lightweight fabric, wide-open sleeves, and relaxed fit make it a new summer staple. Wear it open or belted, with dresses or pants. Think of the kimono like summer’s cardigan or jacket. It’s a finishing piece that can transform even the simplest looks into something more daring and dramatic. This Soft Floral Kimono is from Avenue and comes in a sheer chiffon fabric. Large splashy blooms are drawn in shades of chartreuse, seafoam, and coral for a fresh twist on summer florals. Slip into this weightless beauty to bring bohemian ease to your work look, weekend wear, and summer’s special events.  

Look #1: At the Office 

Wear your kimono closed and belted with a black tank, ponte knit pant, and pump. This outfit will transition seamlessly from day to night by adding a statement earring and clutch. 

Look #2: Out and About 

Kick back in a pair of Avenue’s denim capris and espadrilles for the weekend. Wear your kimono loosely over a cotton cami on those sweltering summer days.   

Look #3: On the Town 

Go boho by layering a kimono over a solid Avenue skater dress for backyard summer weddings. The combination looks effortless, eclectic, and personalized. Plus, there’s next to no chance someone will show up in the same look!
