Coveted Style: Kimonos

I picked up my first kimono over the weekend at TJMaxx (for a mere $15!), and I instantly fell in love. It’s not quite a cardigan or a jacket, but it instantly adds a finished, polished element to almost any outfit – even a white tee and denim shorts. The lighter, chiffon material kimonos can even be worn at the pool or beach as a bathing suit coverup – who doesn’t love a multitasking piece of clothing?!

I certainly now can understand all the hype that I’ve been hearing about and seeing lately when it comes to this new style trend. I’m certain that the kimono that I purchased will be worn to the max throughout the summer, and I hope to add a few of the above pieces to my closet in the near future.

Are you into the kimono trend for the summer?

    You know how I feel about kimono's! Absolutely love them!!! Oh that long sheer black one may be the next one I add to the collection!

    I am on the hunt for the perfect sheer printed kimono that I can wear in regular life and take on vacation as a beach cover up. My mum has one that I love and since she's a sewing genius she's thinking of trying to make one for me – so spoiled!

    I LOVE that one – it's currently on sale, so I'm considering ordering it before it's gone. It would be perfect with a pair of black skinnies or shorts for a night out!

    I definitely caught the bug now – I don't think I'll only have one in my closet for long!

    They are flattering! I bought mine in a small because they run rather large.

    Yes, I absolutely love that I can throw one of these on during the summer instead of a jacket or a cardigan. I thought all of these picks were great at fantastic prices.

    Thanks, lady – I always have the best luck in the home section of TJMaxx, but this is the first time I've found a piece of clothing that I like.

    I felt the same way, but now I can't imagine my closet without at least one. They are just so versatile.

    Me too! I'm not sure how much longer I can resist. πŸ™‚

    That lace one would be perfect for the summertime, and it's such a great price.

    Right?! I think I need that black chiffon jacket one, too. πŸ™‚

    Love these kimonos. My sister wears them all the time and I've been searching for the perfect one. My favorite is the lace one.
