On Trend: Kimono Jackets

Have you all seen the growing Kimono Jacket/Cardigan trend popping up lately?  I first saw it here & while I liked it, I knew this particular one was not my style.  However, my Sister fell in love with it, so when I was at Target a few weeks ago & came upon this one I immediately sent her a picture to see if she wanted me to grab it for her.  The answer - YES!!

It seems the most common ways to wear these lightweight flowy jackets is with a pair of skinny or boyfriend jeans as well as shorts.  Remember to keep the top you wear underneath more fitted rather than too loose or boxy so you don't end up looking bulky on top.

As you can see, this would be one of those pieces you can wear both casually or dressy depending on the occasion.  There are quite a few options out there for really reasonable prices so you need not feel guilty about the cost vs. wear aspect.  Here are some other great options for $30 or less.

While I don't personally have one of these eye-catching jackets, I really like the look of them as a focus piece of an outfit & am not opposed to owning one.  How about you, are you a part of this trend?


  1. As always, I adore your outfit sets. I love seeing the alternate styling options and color pairings you choose. And the cute jewelry you find. :) As for me, I don't have a kimono but I do like the trend. I think it's just that I haven't crossed paths with a specific kimono that makes me love the print and fit and then I'd take the plunge.

    1. Thank you Gina! I'm the same as you....not opposed to it but haven't found anything that steals my heart just yet. I also think it's probably one of those items you need to try on...that may sway the decision a bit. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I agree with you Lauren, the Lace one is definitely eye-catching and not a bad price either! :-)

  3. I love the idea of these as a swimsuit cover up! I saw the Xhilaration one twice in Jamaica! But I don't know if I could pull it off in real life. There are definitely some people that tempt me with them because they look fab! We'll have to see if I cave on this one! I do love your inspiration boards!
