10 Easy Ways To Style a Kimono

Not only is a kimono a beautiful addition to any wardrobe, it’s also one of the most versatile too.

Here are 10 easy ways to style your kimono.

1 - The Beach Cover Up

An easy way to add instant sexiness to your beach look. Not only does this look super cute but it can give you that little bit of extra protection from the sun or summer breeze. 

If you’re feeling a little self conscious in your swimwear this is also a great way to help you cover up a little while still looking beach ready.


2 - Match with cut off denim and a neutral tee.

This all time summer fav can start to look a little dull after a while. A kimono is a fantastic way to brighten up the look and bring it back on trend. With such a blank canvas you can go as crazy or as plain as you like with your kimono print. 


iland co love the addition of brights to give a vibrant, summer feel to the look. Check out our kimonos with WOW factor here.

3 - Dress down your outfit.

A light, pretty kimono is a great way to dress down your LBD or any other tight fitting dress and get so much more wear out of your wardrobe staples. This look can be fantastic for work or lunch with your girlfriends.


4 - Ready for all seasons.

Yes you can still wear your kimono in winter. Just add your fav jeans, boots and long sleeved tee. We love the longer style kimono like below for this look.


5 - Break up a monochromatic outfit.

Give an all black or all white outfit a splash of colour and style with a patterned or floral kimono. Such an easy way to get your look on trend.


6 - Playsuit fun.

How about styling your kimono over your favourite playsuits? Such a fun look. And don't be shy about mixing patterns!

7 - Dress up your outfit.

Did we mention how versatile a kimono can be? Not only can it dress down an outfit but it can dress one up too. Match your kimono with heels and slim black pants for an instant hot look for any after 5 occasion. 


8 - Boho Babe.

The gorgeous boho vibe is so popular at the moment and it is such an easy look to create. Teem your kimono with your favourite maxi dress or detailed top and add plenty of boho touches like layered jewellery and tasseled bag. We recommend a softer, dreamier print and colour for this look. 


9 - Belt up.

For a totally different look with your kimono why not add a belt. This look creates some great curves and gives a neater style to your outfit. Great for at the office or an occasion where you need to look a little more dressed up.

10 - Accessorise. 

Add all your fav accessories to your kimono look ( perhaps not all at once ) to create lots of fun and on-style looks. We love added oversized bangles, hats and layered necklaces to our looks. Match up the colours in your kimonos for a classic look or contrast them for fun and wow factor.


We would love to know how you style your kimono! Write in the comments your fav look.
