Summer has officially been in full swing for me for about a few months now and towards the middle of summer, I find myself repeating the same outfits over and over again. It honestly can feel like a drag wearing the same thing over and over so I raided my closet to figure out how to spice up your casual summer looks!
I can’t remember when kimonos became a popular summer wardrobe staple but I have loved them ever since. I love kimonos because they can make a boring outfit into a cute, sassy, chic look in a second! There are so many ways you can style a kimono, I mean probably hundreds, but I like to style them with denim shorts and a bodysuit, tank, or solid color tee.
When styling a kimono, I generally like to stick to neutral colors as my top such as, nude, white, black, grey, or beige. Then for my bottoms, I usually stick with denim shorts. You can do white or just regular blue denim but the reason I usually go with denim shorts is because for summer, you can dress them up or down. Today I paired my denim shorts with some cute brown wedges! This instantly dresses up the look and would be cute for a date night or a girls night out! Lastly, the kimono. Kimonos come in all sorts of patterns. What I suggest is just trying different ones! I have several kimonos but for summer (and spring) I generally gravitate towards floral kimonos. I just love them and think they are so stinkin cute!
Next time you throw on the same denim shorts and tee, try adding a kimono, it will feel good to spice up your causal summer outfit!
