The beauty of our short kimono cardigans is that they’re a small way to make a big impact on your daily style. Pull out one of your favorite jumpers, slip into this light green kimono robe and voila! You have created a head-turning look that’s easy to wear and easy on the eyes. You can find the same kind of material (this light green kimono robe is 100% silk), or blend textures. We love seeing a combination of textures — whether it’s cotton, a poly-cotton blend, denim, or linen — with our silk kimono robes. Find your favorite jumper and slip into this best selling light green kimono robe for a look that feels as good as it looks.

A Plus Size Kimono Robe and Monochromatic Base Layer

The monochromatic color blocking is everywhere lately, and one way to up that particular trend game is to add your favorite plus size kimono robe or ‘one size fits most’ kimono robe to your wardrobe lineup! The Silk Kuren pictured here is one of our best sellers and comes in both sizes so you can wear it any way you please. We love the look of this silk plus size kimono robe over a base layer of whites. The clean simple under layer paves the way for this kimono pattern to stand out in its elegance and sophistication. If it feels too late in the season for whites, try a gray base layer, pink base layer, or brown base layer to pack a visual punch and see for yourself what makes the Kuren a best seller.

A Green Kimono Robe to Uplevel Your Loungewear

While we love wearing these pieces out and about, remember that they can just as powerfully uplevel your at-home wear. And in the challenging times we’ve been going through the past couple of years, bringing some fun and luxury to your home is just as important as dressing up and going out. We love the pairing of this green plus size kimono robe with a base layer that’s flesh toned. Find a camisole, slip, or pair of silk shorts to get comfortable at home and slip into a little luxury with this vintage, jewel-toned green kimono robe.

A Kimono Pattern as Wearable (and Hangable) Art

One other way to bring your favorite, best selling kimono pattern to life is to display it while you’re not wearing it! We recommend hanging these pieces on hangers, as we don’t have hang tags which can easily tear at the silk material. So while you’re storing your favorite handpainted kimono robe, let it become part of your home’s decor. We love hanging it on the back of a door or over a closet or armoire for an added touch of luxury. Each of these beautiful handpainted kimono patterns take 7 days to create from the first hand sketch to the soaking of the 100% silk with dyes to the saturation of rich watercolors on the surface of the garment. You can see how we bring these kimono patterns to life with a behind the scenes look at our production process here. Our Handpainted Crane Kimono Robe is a favorite and best selling kimono pattern for good reason — the crane has beautifully symbolic meanings and the sophisticated design brings big impact when paired with anything from jeans to a dress to simply hanging in your bedroom.

There are endless possibilities when it comes to styling your own kimono outfits. If you’re not sure where to begin, head over to our best sellers page and check out all the ways you can wear your favorite piece on our Instagram feed for more ideas. And remember lovely, you are strong, you are beautiful, you are a work of art, and you deserve to feel like the queen you are.
