Kimonos are one of my favorite articles of clothing, so when I came across this pineapple printed one, in the Lilly Pulitzer for Target collection, I had to have it! Kimonos are great because they double as a swimsuit coverup and a fun accent piece. There are many ways to style a kimono. Wear it open over your ensemble, or belt it closed over your favorite bodycon dress. Pair it with shorts, pants, or a skirt, flats, wedges, or heels. The opportunities are endless.
In the ensemble below, I styled Lilly’s satin kimono in “Pineapple Punch,” with a high-waisted skirt and crop top. If it wasn’t for the extra coverage provided by the layering piece, I wouldn’t feel comfortable stepping out in a crop top and painted on bandage skirt. Thanks to the kimono, it is a different story and it’s a win win – wear the outfit without feeling self-conscious. Anyway, I chose a white skirt to stick with the color scheme of the kimono, but chose a bright blue top to jazz things up a bit. To tie things together, I went with a bluish-gray and white statement necklace and matching ring. Finally, I polished off the look with a white and gold reptile clutch purse and my white laser cut sandals.
I am already looking forward to wearing this piece over a white bikini during my next beach vacation!
