Kimono style jackets would make an on-trend addition to your wardrobe this season. Eastern style influences have been making their way into fashion over the past few seasons and a kimono jacket is an easy way to incorporate these trends into your look. They’re a little bit luxe, and are the perfect statement-maker. Check out a few kimono style jackets, below.
If you’re not too sure how to style kimono jackets then start with a basic black variety. Rather than being a statement jacket, black kimono style jackets can easily slide into your existing wardrobe. Work a modern look by teaming a black kimono jacket, like this 3.1 Philip Lim version, with leather leggings and ankle boots. While this particular jacket is quite expensive, check out your usual chain store suspects for more affordable buys.
2 Paisley Print Kimono
Paisley print is having a bit of a moment and it looks right at home on a kimono jacket. This red paisley print kimono jacket would look stylish worn with a white tank top and blue skinny jeans. Wear it draped open for a cool and casual look. It is pretty pricey at $110 but you can grab similar, more affordable versions by ASOS and Element.
3 Colour Block Kimono
Stick to a more contemporary look with this colour blocked kimono from Roksanda Ilincic. It features black, white, and coral panels and is made from a drapey silk fabric. Either wear it draped open with a fitted tank dress or cinched in at the waist with a statement belt. This particular kimono jacket costs around $900 at full price so it definitely pays to hunt around for a similar bargain buy.
4 Floral Print Kimono
Floral kimonos are a great choice for summer. Team them with denim shorts, tees, and floppy hats for a boho-inspired look. This long floral kimono from Mink Pink costs around $60 and you can also check out ASOS and Urban Outfitters for more floral print kimonos.
5 Short Printed Kimono
Work a different angle in a short kimono jacket. Short or cropped styles are perfect for teaming with high waisted skirts and trousers. This printed kimono by Labour of Love would look great teamed with a basic white tank and black skinny jeans. It is pretty pricey though, and will set you back a couple of hundred dollars. For more budget-friendly options, check out ASOS.
6 Contrasting Print Kimono
Look out for kimono jackets in interesting prints. A bold print is bound to make a statement. This Emilio Pucci kimono jacket does just that, with plenty of contrasting printed panels. However, it’ll also burn a hole in your pocket at around $2000. Luckily you can find much more affordable printed kimonos at stores like Topshop.
7 Striped Silk Kimono
A silky, lightweight kimono is perfect for summer. Choose one in a pale colour and team it with a range of neutral outfits. This Carine Gilson silk kimono would look great teamed with white tailored shorts and metallic sandals. It is extremely pricey though, so check out chain stores for more budget-friendly alternatives.
