Travelogue: Kimono Robes from Summer Days to Summer Nights

The wanderlust is real, lovelies. Not only does travel to the mind, body, and soul a little good, it is invigorating to get out stale wardrobe habits as well. So it’s no surprise that one of our favorite seasons to travel is summer when you can lightly layer with your favorite kimono robe. Summer means we get warmer weather, some extra time off from work and school, and everything seems to slow down just a little bit, making it a perfect time to get out of town and out of a rut. But one reason we love to travel in the summer is because packing is so easy. When you bring your kimono robe with you on vacation, you’re not just bringing a beautiful piece to lounge around in — you’re packing one piece that can effortlessly take you from day to night and back again. Here are a few of our favorite examples of kimono robes for summer days and nights.

A Maxi Kimono Robe for Cocktails and Late Nights

Your kimono robe doesn’t have to stay locked away in your hotel room when you’re vacationing. In fact, we love seeing it out and about on the town. Headed out for a night of cocktails and connections? Drape it over your shoulders when wearing a short, silky dress for a modern take on a light jacket. Your maxi kimono robe can double up as a gorgeous statement piece as you sip champagne at the hotel bar or stroll around a new city at night. It’s the perfect layer as you weave inside and outside at night, giving you that extra bit of warmth, without weighing you down with a heavy layer that detracts from your sweet, summer vibe. Wherever your vacation nights take you, take a maxi kimono robe with you.

A Blue Kimono Robe for a Mid-Afternoon  Meet Up

If sleeping in is your thing, we completely understand. And sometimes vacation is the only time a late morning is possible! You’re out of your routine and hopefully that means you get in a few extra Zs. If that’s the case, your kimono style summer robes can give you an easy transition from morning to afternoon. Slip into a beautiful blue kimono robe while sipping your late morning latte and catching up on your favorite blog. Then meet up with your travel buddy by slipping your kimono robe over a sports bra and jeans. It’s that easy. Wear it with confidence and wear it with a style that’s as unique as you are. Head out to happy hour or simply sit and people watch before your evening plans. It’s the perfect afternoon date.

What’s got more magic to it than a beautiful black floral kimono robe? In our opinion, not too much. We love how easy it is to expand your horizons and open up your world view on vacation, and your black floral kimono robe is the perfect piece to suit your wandering spirit. The beautiful floral design against a solid black backdrop brings art to life in an easy-to-wear light layer. Wear it in the morning to lounge, the afternoon on an adventure, and the night as you wind down.

Kimono Sleeves for a Dramatic Touch

What’s one thing that can ruin travel plans? The stress of packing! It’s one thing that, when you’re getting ready for your big trip, can put a dent in the celebration if you don’t have the right pieces or end up over-packing. But we believe packing should be a joy. And it doesn’t mean you just have to pack the basics when you go out of town. If you’re headed out of town for a wedding this summer (we’re guessing that’s quite a few of you!), then you want to pack something especially worthy of a celebration. That’s why we love our Azumi Kimono Wrap with gorgeous kimono sleeves of velvet trim. The soft charmeuse blend is gorgeous on your skin and then velvet trim of the kimono sleeve gives a little extra weight to this standout piece. Wear as a light layer over your dress to the wedding and then lounge poolside in it the following day. This one piece can take you from day to night and back again. It’s an easy addition to your suitcase. Simply give it a quick and gentle steam when you get to your destination and your outfit is ready to go.

Strolling in Your Blue Kimono Robe

Whether you’re off to the beach, a wedding, an adventure, or simply just lounging poolside, this blue kimono robe is the most luxurious option for any occasion. Blue is the new black as far as we’re concerned. It’s got the feminine touch with beautiful, powerful energy in the vibrancy of the blue. We also just love how simple it is to dress up and down. Your blue kimono robe can stand on its own as a kimono dress, wrapped with a belt and heels for a fancy night out. Bring down the fancy factor every so slightly with a fun hat or change out the shoes. And feel free to brunch in this beautiful blue over a t-shirt and jeans. It’s a beautiful color to pair with your entire wardrobe and is a great substitute if you’re not feeling like black on this vacation.

We want your vacation to be as memorable (and photogenic!) as possible. Whether you’re catching extra shut eye or staying up all night, there’s a kimono robe to bring the fun into your suitcase. No matter where you’re headed this summer, pack your wardrobe must have: a kimono robe you can wear from day to night.

  • Hi Leah,

    Our long kimono robes range in length from 52-54" so they may be a little long in that case. You can see exact measurement details on each product page under ‘sizing’ to give you the most accurate idea of fit!

  • Is the long robe over powering when you are 5 feel?
