HOW TO WEAR A KIMONO

Kimono's are one of my all time favourite throw-on garments. Somehow I've collected around five or six of them and I think that's mainly because I'm a big fan of prints, but also because they are so easy to wear!

But if you're not used to the kimono style they might seem a little perplexing, especially as they are so loose and billowy. But if you persevere, you will find that they can be worn in a multitude of different ways. They can be a nice alternative to a jacket and a great way to cover up when wearing a bikini on the beach.

Here are some of the ways I style a kimono:

- Team with a cami, skinny jeans and heels for the evening

-Throw over denim shorts and wear with a loose tee underneath on a summers day

- In the winter, use it as a layering piece over a fine knit and team with boots

- For holidays, wear open with a bikini top on the beach or to cover your shoulders when it get's cool in the evenings

- I quite often wrap mine across my waist and layer a waist belt over the top like I'm wearing a blouse

In my quest to find more kimono's, I came across these beautiful variations:


(Enter Sarahs Style Statement at the checkout for 20% off!)


I absolutely love the bold, blue print and I think this style would stand alone as a statement addition to any outfit.

The bird print on this kimono is delicate and beautiful and I think it would be perfect throw-on item for any evening occasion. Team with skinny jeans or tailored trousers to achieve an effortless night time look.



This neon striped number is sure to catch attention, even when it's paired with a simple tee and denim cut-off's. 

I particularly love the fringed detail on this long-line kimono and I also think it would be a great winter option for layering over fine knitwear.




Why wear a boring jacket when you can wear this pretty floral kimono instead? Team with almost anything for a laid back vintage feel.


Prefer to sling on a top as opposed to a kimono style jacket? Simply pair this top with jeans and ankle boots and away you go!

Are you loving the kimono trend as much as I am?
