Our Coolest Kimono Robes for a Hot Summer

If you’re with us in the Northern Hemisphere, then you are in the thick of summer. The dense, humid heat is wreaking havoc on our hair, skin, and yes, even our sense of style. It’s easy to want to give up on your wardrobe when it gets this hot and muggy. You may decide to either stay indoors with the air conditioning blasting, or go out without much thought to your look because hey it’s summer, who cares! But this is precisely the time when a little can go a long way when it comes to streetwear.

At KIM+ONO, we design with you in mind. That means creating timeless pieces that also capture the magic of florals and the whimsicality of each season while giving you lightweight options that won’t weigh you down. So today on the blog, we’ve rounded up some lightweight styles to help set your summer kimono style on fire. From short kimono robes to maxi kimono robes, from light to dark, and from silk to charmeuse, there’s a little something for everyone in this round up. The one thing each beautiful kimono robe brings to the table? A lightweight fabric to elevate your everyday look into a summer showstopper.

Black (Kimono Robes) is Back
You can’t keep it much simpler than black. It’s a color that looks beautiful on everyone, heightens the drama, and pulls out the timelessness of any look. And with a lightweight black floral kimono robe, you are well on your way to a simple, sophisticated look that is bound to turn heads. We love this long kimono robe for an early evening stroll, a fancy date night out, or even a long, luxurious weekend brunch. The delicate, muted floral details pop against the stark contract of black charmeuse. Maybe the best part of this gorgeous black floral kimono robe is that it’s easy to care for — simply wash on delicate cycle and hang to dry — which means you can wear this piece over and over again all summer long. Whether you’re covering up or showing off, this beautiful black kimono robe has summer written all over it.

A Lightweight Kimono Robe for Days and Night

What is better than waking up and wearing silk? We can’t think of much. That’s why we absolutely love this Handpainted Lotus Kimono Robe as the perfect piece for a relaxing morning and lovely night. This white kimono robe is 100% silk with a handpainted design splashed across the back and onto the front. Our Handpainted Silk Collection takes seven days to make from start to finish. It starts with a design, sketched by hand. Then it’s saturated with rich watercolors and a traditional paintbrush. So you’re truly donning a piece of wearable art. The lightweight silk and gorgeous floral design make this piece your go-to for lazy morning wake ups and late night wind downs. It has the texture to remind you to breathe deeply, the design to make you swoon, and the feeling that going a little bit slower during this summer season isn’t such a bad thing. Whether you’re hustling in your normal routine or finding some time to travel and disconnect this summer, this white kimono robe is a piece of luxury worth adding in to your every day.
