This summer, you might be heading to the beach, relaxing at home, traveling to your dream destination, or attending a wedding or two with loved ones. Or maybe you’re making plans to get to all the festivals and outdoor concerts that you’ve been eyeing up! In any case, it’s a wonderful time to start putting together the outfit combinations that make you feel confident and uniquely you, wherever you’re going this summer.
We know that an outfit isn't just about how you look—it's about how you feel. The confidence factor was key in our decision to launch our Curve Collection of plus size kimono robes just a few years ago. We’re excited to continue adding to it due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback we’ve gotten. And although we know there’s still work to be done in our goal to be as inclusive as possible, we’re happy to offer plus size kimono robes in designs from our Washable Silk, Printed Silk, and Charmeuse collections. Our plus size kimono robes are versatile pieces that are perfect both indoors and out. Yes, summer kimono robes aren’t just for lounging! They’re the functional lightweight coverup you can wear by the ocean, with jeans, over a formal slip dress, and more. Today in the journal, we’re sharing some of our favorite ideas for styling your plus size kimono robe this summer. If you’ve ever wondered how to style a kimono robe, keep reading!
We know sunscreen and flip flops are definitely going in your beach tote. How about a lightweight cover-up that’s easy to slip on and off? For protection from sun and sand—and a touch of style—our plus size kimono robes are easy to bring along on your next seaside vacation. In particular, we recommend our charmeuse kimono robes in curve sizing at the beach. Charmeuse is buttery soft against the skin, machine washable, and simply easy to wear. It’s perfect for slipping on over a bathing suit or beach dress. And after sunset, when temperatures are a little cooler, a kimono robe coverup is perfect for transitioning straight from the beach to dinner and drinks in town.
Another way to style your kimono robe is to pair it with your favorite jeans. A plus size floral silk robe brightens up your usual outfits by adding dimension and interest. Beautiful botanical prints can be worn over plain tops—or, you can mix patterns and textures for a truly unique look! Whether you love skinny jeans or prefer a wider leg, layering a kimono robe over jeans adds a decorative touch and serves as a unifying visual element from top to bottom. This is one of our favorite ways to style a kimono robe since it mixes in items you already own and love.
Choose a One-of-a-Kind Statement Piece
Wearing your kimono robe as a statement piece exudes confidence and boldness! For example, we love when a deep, bold color like midnight blue is worn with whites and neutrals. By keeping the rest of the outfit simple, you allow the kimono robe to be the center of attention. Statement kimono robes can take you from morning to afternoon and evening, all while offering lightweight breathability the entire day. In addition, our washable womens long silk robes in curve sizing combines the luxurious softness of silk with ease of care. So go ahead and make a statement piece out of your kimono robe—no matter where you wear it, at the end of the day, it’s simple to wash.
The next styling tip for your plus size kimono robe this summer is to wear it as a daily floral cardigan. With loose three-quarter sleeves and comfortable French seams, our kimono robes make a perfect daily coverup while you enjoy your morning iced coffee or work at your desk. If you start your day off with journaling or meditation, try taking a moment to slip into your kimono robe: it serves as a reminder to breathe and ease your way into the day ahead. Of course, these aren’t the only ways to work a kimono robe into your routine. Perhaps you love to relax after a long day and wind down with your nighttime skincare routine. Make it a ritual and slip into your silky soft kimono robe first so that the whole experience truly feels like self-care. The key to making your kimono robe a meaningful daily go-to is to wear it with intention.
Our last idea for styling your plus size kimono robe this summer is to wear it as a wedding cover-up! It’s an easy way to dress up separates and go seamlessly from afternoon ceremony to evening reception. The luster of silk adds a touch of formality to your look as well. Planning to wear a strappy summer dress to your next wedding, but need a sophisticated cover-up? A kimono robe is a unique way to cover your shoulders without feeling frumpy or boring.
