Pair It With Jeans and a Tee

For an effortlessly chic outfit, throw it on over a simple jeans and t-shirt combo. The kimono adds interest to an otherwise basic look. Pick a kimono in a bold color or eye-catching print to really make the outfit pop. Kimonos from top brands like Umgee work beautifully for this.

Wear It as a Swimsuit Cover-Up

Heading to the beach or pool? A lightweight kimono makes a stylish swimsuit cover-up. Wear it open over your bathing suit, or belt it for more coverage. The flowy silhouette is perfect for throwing on after a dip. Check out the breezy styles from Easel that are ideal for vacation.

Dress It Up

Wondering how to style a kimono for more dressy occasions? You can dress up your outfit for a night out too. Layer a kimono over a simple Easel dress, or wear it with trousers and a camisole. Opt for a kimono in a luxe fabric like silk or chiffon. Kimonos with intricate floral prints or elegant solid colors work well for a sophisticated look.

Belt It

For a different take on styling your kimono, try belting it to give a loose silhouette more shape. This defines your waist and keeps the kimono from overwhelming your frame. It's an easy way to transform the piece so you can wear it in multiple ways.

Layer It

As temperatures cool, a kimono can be a great layering piece. Here's how to style a kimono for colder weather. Wear it under a leather or denim jacket for an unexpected peek of print. You can also layer it over a lightweight turtleneck or long-sleeve tee once short-sleeve weather has passed.
