10 Lightweight Kimonos for Summer

Kimonos for Summer

Happy Monday! It’s the first full week of June and I couldn’t be more excited. June is my favorite month of the year. It is my birthday month and also my best friend’s – plus it’s the official start of Summer, which is my favorite season.

It’s only been in the past year that I have really appreciated adding a third piece to an outfit. Outside of winter when coats are obligatory I never would wear a jacket or any other layering piece. I have now realized what a difference it makes without much more effort. It easily pulls a look together and gives a sense of completeness. So lately I have been keeping my eye out for lightweight toppers to add for the Summer months. It’s so hot here in Alabama that a regular jacket would be too much.

Kimonos have been my solution. They come in different lengths, fabrics, and colors. So there is definitely one out there for pretty much anybody’s taste. Kimonos for summer can dress up denim cutoffs for everyday or pair nicely with a dress for date nights. I’ve linked 10 different ones below in all different styles and all of them are under $100! If you have a favorite lightweight piece for Summer please let me know.

    Kimonos are such a fun way to play up an outfit! Loving the lace too! 🙂

  • This kimono is so cute! I’m very interested to try this trend and always have been, but I’m not sure I’m daring enough to pull it off haha…

    • They have ones that are shorter or just a solid color so I am sure there is one out there for you!

  • I absolutely love kimonos! The anthropologie white lace Kimono is so gorgeous.

    • Thanks Chloe! I really do like how the lace one gives a very different feel than the floral ones.

  • I love the idea of a lace kimono! Last summer it was so hot and humid I couldn’t imagine adding a layer but lace might be just the thing!
