Women’s Kimono Cardigans & Tops
A kimono is a traditional Japanese garment dating back centuries. It is very formal, nearly floor length, loose-fitting with long sleeves and incredibly elegant. A kimono top is inspired by this ceremonial robe, but updated with a western twist. Kimono cardigans are lightweight and flowy. They come in a wide range of colors, fabrics, styles, lengths and cuts, and can be worn with nearly anything. These versatile garments can be dressed up or down. They add movement and flair to almost any ensemble.
For a dramatic take on a feminine business suit, replace the jacket with a sheer, floral kimono top. Another great look for the office is to pair a kimono with a sheath dress, with the volume of the “jacket” balancing the fitted silhouette of the dress. At the other end of the formality scale, top distressed jeans with a patterned kimono cardigan and heels for a perfect east-meets-west fashion fusion. Dress up a simple set of shorts and a tee with a women’s kimono and sandals, and you’re ready to go to brunch. A very long kimono or duster is perfect paired with leggings, and turns any maxi dress into boho chic. It even makes a terrific cover up for your bathing suit.
You’ll discover kimono tops work well in your wardrobe for a wide range of occasions, and any season.
