How to wear a kimono wrap
Kimono-style wraps are THE must-have item for fashion girls this season. The best thing about this boho piece is that you can wear it so many different ways. Here are five different ideas for how to wear a kimono wrap:
Throw it on over a tee and jean shorts for a casual look
If you’re like us, you could totally live in an oversized T-shirt and denim shorts all summer. Take a cue from Elizabeth Olsen and pair a drapey kimono with these summer basics for a high-fashion take on your summer uniform.
A sheer, fringed kimono over a short dress = instant glamour
Sure, a mini dress is cute on its own. But pair it with a fringed kimono and it’s reached a whole new level of glamour. If your kimono’s sheer, that’s even better, because that way your whole dress is on display. We love blogger Daniela Ramirez’s all-black take on this look – she’s like a summery sprite with a hint of ’90s goth. Genius.
Pair your kimono with boho hair for a flower-child look
Blogger Magarida Castro’s braid and flower crown work perfectly with her kimono’s hippie vibe. Need some insp-hair-ation? Try this blog post on 10 bohemian hairstyles (it’s one of our most popular posts EVER).
Try a floor-length kimono over a shorter dress
A foot-grazing kimono may seem unwearable in real life, but Lookbook.nu user Hillary B. shows us how to pull it off here. The key is to keep your dress simple and above-the-knee.
Rock it as a beach cover-up
How glamorous does Jessica Alba look here? Her outfit shows how versatile kimono wraps are – they work just as well on the beach as they do over a dress at a nice dinner.
Try it for yourself
If you don’t already own a kimono, you MUST get your hands on our Alison Wrap in Navy before it sells out. It’s super lightweight, and it’s embroidered with the most beautiful floral print.
