Kimono Outfit Ideas for Spring 2022

With spring getting ready to emerge eventually, it’s time to start talking about bringing a spring classic back to your wardrobe - the kimono. 

Kimonos are fabulous additions to any outfit or ensemble, especially if you’re looking to infuse your look with light textures and bright colors. In other words, kimonos are the ideal choice for the spring season! 

Of course, if you’re unfamiliar with wearing kimonos or you're just looking for some inspiration for your next outfit, then you’re in luck! 

In today’s blog, we’re going to take a look at how to integrate kimonos into your outfits this spring season.

Basic Tops & Tees

Watermelon Sugar Kimono

Kimonos are the ideal layering tool; they’re light, bright, and colorful, allowing you to enhance your broader outfit with a simple addition. As a result, sometimes, the best way to ensure a successful kimono-orientated outfit is to keep things simple everywhere else. 

Try layering your kimono over a basic top for a timeless look that can flip between casual and semi-formal with ease, depending on your shoes and accessories. 

Graphic Tees

Of course, you might have a kimono that’s a little more basic in appearance or made from a darker fabric. In that case, try using a colorful graphic tee to add some additional color to your outfit. 

Tank Tops

Kimonos have a unique quality in how they hang from the shoulders, allowing you to benefit from a flowing silhouette that creates an instant sense of elegance. 

Tank tops make a fantastic under-layer for kimonos during warmer days while bringing a greater emphasis to your shoulders and further enhancing your kimonos flow. 


Oh Yeah Leopard Kimono

With spring around the corner, it’s never been a better time to start integrating another seasonal favorite. 

Leggings and, more specifically, jeggings are the ultimate compromise between style and functionality, allowing you to benefit from all of the aesthetic qualities of buttoned pants without the added hassle. Leggings work fabulously with kimonos by bringing a visual contrast to your silhouette. 

While the kimono flows delicately, your Leggings help cut your profile down, lending greater emphasis to your kimono aesthetic qualities. 

Maxi Dress

Now, while it can be a good idea to try and counter the flowing quality of your kimono, it’s also a great idea to double up on the flowing fabrics as well. 

Maxi dresses are the best additions to your outfit if you’re looking for an additive option to combine with a kimono. However, be careful with your colors by choosing something a little more neutral for the dress, letting your kimono shine. 

Shorts & Mini Dresses

For those warmer spring days, a pair of shorts dress can be a fantastic option for kimono-based outfits. Most kimonos stop at around the same length as your standard mini dress, creating an excellent layering effect that lets your legs look amazing in the process. 


Blue On Blue Kimono

Finally, adding some accessories to your outfit is always a great idea. Accessories add a lot of extra flavor to an ensemble and can further emphasize the areas your kimono already enhances. 

Bracelets provide a great way to add style to your wrists and forearms, which most kimonos leave bare. Similarly, a great, low-hanging necklace can add a little weight to a flowing outfit, creating a tasteful centerpiece that draws the eye to your center.
