5 Reasons You Need a Kimono in Your Summer Wardrobe

As temperatures rise, picking the right outfit to suit the mood, heat and occasion, can feel like a real chore. Kimonos are effortlessly chic style boosters, easily reviving flair and comfort in warmer weather. Defined by their straight-cut structure and unique silhouette, here’s five reasons why kimonos are a great pick for summer days.

Modesty combined with style

With a typical loose fit, kimonos are the perfect modest piece to add to your summer wardrobe. Supporting an oversized design, most kimonos drape and flow over the feminine figure freely, offering a flattering appearance to all body shapes. For example, the Self Print Kimono boasts a fluid style, working as a great summer cover up for any outfit.

Enjoy lightweight comfort

Kimonos are usually made from light, breathable fabrics, making them the ideal choice when in need of an extra layer of style in warmer weather. The Aab Pintuck Kimono is an easy, lightweight piece, with a relaxed fit and gorgeous colour to suit the season. Made from viscose, this stunning piece provides freedom and fluidity, adding depth, movement and comfort, all in one.

Easily add patterns and prints that never go out of style

Kimonos are the easiest way to incorporate timeless patterns into your summer outfits; tropical blooms, stripes, checks and even animal print kimonos can light up an entire look. Aab’s Retro Flowers Kimono is the ultimate relaxed summer kimono, paired beautifully with a white tee or classic slip and trousers - the possibilities with the decorative details of prints and patterns are endless.

Revive some originality to your summer glam

Kimonos are a great opportunity to explore alternative styles and looks, regardless of what you’re wearing underneath. Change up your outfit through one statement kimono, which can effortlessly upscale the snaz of your look. The Aab Corteza Kimono is a unique piece, with a simple straight cut and fluid back pleat detailing. The exaggerated mandarin collar with the slim fit design exudes flair and taste to any outfit.

Bring elegance to summer occasions

This summer has brought with it an aptitude of impromptu moments and intimate gatherings, making it harder to pick the right outfit for each event. Due to their lengthy cuts and free flowing designs, kimonos easily add grace and sophistication to your look. Our Hanging Garden Kimono features exquisite hand embroidered flowers with a 3D effect, sprucing up any daytime outfit for maximum style, charm and grandeur.

Offering delicate protection against the summer sun, an added layer in the cooler evenings, and a style boost for any outfit, kimonos are the perfect summer essential.
