Replace an Oversized Cardigan with a Floral Kimono Cardigan
One of fall’s favorite trends is the oversized cardigan. It’s great for layering, especially when the weather doesn’t quite require a jacket yet. But for a sweet, soft look, we love to swap a regular cardigan for a floral kimono cardigan in a shorter length. Not only is it a great layer to bring your outfit from day to night as the temperatures dip down a little cooler, but it makes getting dressed a breeze! Simply choose a monochromatic outfit for your base and let your floral kimono cardigan make the statement.
Another great reason to choose a short kimono robe is to give your more casual looks a little oomph. We love the way stylist Alexa Yeon paired her short Yurina Kimono Robe with jeans and sneakers. A short kimono robe is the perfect way to bring interest to a casual outfit without going overboard. And a kimono style jacket like this is your go-to piece when you’re just not quite sure what to wear. The shorter length kimono robe gives you a playful option to pair with everything in your closet.
Although it may sound counterintuitive, a short kimono robe is a perfect piece for a taller woman. We get a lot of questions about the length of our kimono robes with many taller women wondering if the long kimono robes will be long enough. However, when you are a bit taller, the short kimono robes actually accentuate the beauty in your height! Members of our taller tribe find wearing a short kimono with a dress is always a sophisticated look for a wedding or special event. And pairing a shorter length with skinny jeans and heels is a sleek way to make a subtle statement.
A short kimono robe should be a staple piece in every wardrobe. From replacing your cardigan to your jacket, these short length pieces are versatile enough to accompany you on any outing. If you’re on the taller side, a short length can fall at the perfect place to play up your beautiful height. And of course, in those hotter summer months, a short kimono robe is perfect to lounge in as well! No matter your reason for trying out this kimono fashion, we highly recommend grabbing a shorter length to bring your whole closet together.
