Tips For Anyone Who Ever Wondered How To Wear A Kimono (Aka Everyone)

Kimonos aren’t just meant to be worn at music festivals. They can be part of your everyday wardrobe, too. Plus, the breezy style is the perfect layer for those summer nights that have a hint of chill. And if you’re looking for the ultimate item that will help boost your carefree spirit-or just hoping to look half as cool as Stevie Nicks circa 1970-then a kimono is your best bet. Read our tips on how to pick and style your kimono and then check out our slideshow for some of our favorite picks.

1. Figure out what details you’re looking for in a kimono. Are you into fringe? Comfortable with wearing prints? Kimonos come in as many shapes and forms as the standard T-shirt. So having a set idea of what you want will help you narrow down the selection.

2. Treat it like a cardigan. Owning an interesting piece like a kimono can often make you want to save it for a stellar outfit. But if you wear it as if it’s your go-to cardigan (aka with everything), then you’ll be surprised to see just how many more outfits it perfectly goes with, which means a better cost-per-wear ratio.

3.  It’s all about balance — but don’t be afraid to take risks. If you opt for a floor-sweeping kimono, then wearing it with cut-off shorts and a pair of high-heeled booties is a winning formula. (Balance!) But experiment, too. A mid-length kimono can totally transform an outfit if you layer it over something unexpected like a button-down blouse and shorts.

Don’t forget to check out these other trends: tropi-cool printslobster prints, and blue-and-white stripes.
