Spring Style Inspiration // The Kimono Jacket

As spring draws closer, I can feel a great exhale of relief as we all begin to shed our winter layers transitioning our heavily insulated feather-down coats and wool jackets to light-weight parkas and cool cardigans. I love seeing the lighter spring layers start coming into play.

Kimono jackets (or cardigans, if you prefer) started making a splash on the street style circuit in early fall last year and just as they were a great piece to transition to the colder months, they’re perfect as we transition to warmer weather.

They look fantastic in a classic satin floral-print and even better when slightly sheer. You can find them in floor-length, thigh-length, or hip-length styles; vintage or brand new they’re all divinely feminine, and even a touch bohemian.

You can wear a kimono as you would any other jacket, though I find they look best for everyday over a simple shift dress with sandals or flats (or ankle boots if it’s still not quite warm enough) or paired with distressed denim and classic pumps.

Spring Style // The Kimono Jacket

You can find kimono jackets practically anywhere, from vintage stores to big box retailers, here are a few I’m inspired to purchase:
