Casual Denim & Your Kimono Robe

What says summer more than denim? It’s the casual go-to option that’s easy to slip on, perfect for lazy days, and easy pack for vacation, and just the right touch for those hot summer nights out on the town. Whether you opt for the Western look or something dark and sleek, denim gives you the range you love when expressing your style.

And believe it or not, we happen to believe that kimono robes pair perfectly with your denim. The soft silks of any kimono outfit bring a balance of femininity to your look, and we love to counter that with the versatility of all kinds of denim. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite denim and kimono robe pairings so you can see which duo is your favorite and get inspiration for your own perfect match. Read on and browse our customers’ styles to spice up your denim looks all summer long.

Your Kimono Robe with Jean Shorts

We could live in our jean shorts all summer long. But by July, it may be time for a refresh. Don’t throw out your jeans shorts — instead, upgrade with a kimono robe. Your summer kimono is the perfect light layer to sling over your shoulders as you’re off the boardwalk. Jean shorts and a crop top, bathing suit top, bodysuit, or even a distressed graphic tee, all get a sartorial boost when you wear your kimono robe as the finishing touch. You’ll make a statement while keeping the sun off your shoulders and transition effortlessly from day to night. We love this black summer kimono as a sophisticated touch to any grungy look. And that’s what summer is all about — mixing and matching styles that are as whimsical as the season. So kick up your heels, pick out your favorite kimono style, and bust out your best denim.

Torn Denim with a Delicate Kimono Robe

The torn jean has been the bane of parents for decades. But you, in all your stylishness, know that a torn denim jean is a must-have item in your closet. It’s certainly casual, but you can dress it up and down easily, making it a beautiful piece to take you through all the exciting events and lazy days of summer months. Ready to kick your torn denim up a notch? Just add silk. We love the effortlessness of this kimono style because it doesn’t sacrifice any elegance when paired with your torn denim jeans. Keep the palette simple and allow the botanical design of your kimono robe to shine. With torn denim, this look is the perfect kimono style for brunch with friends, a day out in a new city, or a casual Summer Friday happy hour.

Wide Leg Jeans with a Kimono Jacket

The beautiful thing about denim is its versatility and how unique each cut and style can bring out a different feeling. When we see a gorgeous wide leg jean, we think summer, relaxation, travel, vacation, playfulness, and fun. And luckily for you, we have a kimono jacket that goes perfectly with that entire feeling. Our Peacock and Feather Kimono Robe features a highlighted sash to make this kimono jacket a standout against a wide leg pant. The tiny details elevate this whole look to serve a feminine mischievousness while still looking put together and ready for anything. We love how the long length of this kimono robe flows against the wide leg denim, creating the perfect drape for a walk around town.

Your Kimono Robe’s Black Denim Base

There’s a special place in our hearts for black denim. It’s the ultimate palette cleanser. It’s sophisticated without getting too serious. You can wear it to work or wear it to your weekend and feel like your style can still shine. That’s why it’s the perfect base for your kimono robe. For this kimono outfit, you can lean into the monochrome with a black kimono robe or another dark color, or you can use your black denim as the perfect launching pad for a pop of color. Whatever you choose, your black denim and kimono robe will create a kimono outfit look that screams elegance, classic beauty, and feminine power.

Frayed Jeans for a Hip Kimono Outfit

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: we love mixing textures. And that includes frayed denim with the velvet of your kimono sleeves. For a look that’s off the beaten path, and yet comfortable and fun, your frayed jeans can offer a new perspective of your beautiful green kimono robe. With the frayed details at your ankles and velvet details at your wrists, you are bringing to light all the little style moments we love in summer fashion. You don’t have to take your kimono outfit too seriously to make a serious impact, and your frayed jeans and kimono robe combo prove just that.
