Trend Watch: Why I Love Kimono Jackets

It’s no secret kimono jackets are “in” today. With so many celebrities we see wearing this bohemian staple, it’s no wonder it has gone full mainstream. Honestly, the first time I’ve heard about this trend, the first thing that popped into my mind is that traditional Japanese garment. However, kimonos are far from that heavy clothing from the Orient. In fact, kimonos are usually loose fitting and made from a delicate, breathable material. Thus, this makes it a perfect layering piece for warm seasons. Furthermore, because of their delicate tonal embroidery details, kimono jackets can be a perfect alternative to the much more formal blazer.

That’s the reason why during spring or summer or whenever the weather becomes too hot for jackets or blazers, I always turn to my kimonos for my layering needs. Of course, cardigans are fine, but you have to admit they can be a bit boring if you wear them every day. In addition, with cardigans, there are limited options when it comes to styling. Kimonos, on the other hand, are chic and trendy—a true embodiment of effortless cool and stylish. What’s more, the thing I love most about kimonos is their versatility. Going shopping with your friends? Having brunch with your S.O.? Spending the day at the beach? Yes, you can wear them with pretty much anything in your closet and anywhere you want. Truly a must-have, don’t you agree?
