A New Summer Staple: The Men's Kimono Robe

It’s summertime and, at least in our world, everyone is itching to update their summer looks! The summery breeze, the seaside air, the slower pace — all of this informs how we like to saunter around for the summer months. We love a women’s kimono robe as the ultimate transition piece between seasons and the perfect transition piece from long summer days to hot summer nights. But this summer, we’re also swooning for all the ways our kimono robes for men are becoming a summer fashion staple too.

As we all update our summer looks, a charmeuse or silk kimono robe for men is an exciting and incredibly versatile piece to add to your favorite guy’s closet. He can wear it during slow mornings or late nights — or both! There are so many kimono robes for men in our main collection that our male customers are loving. They’re the perfect gifts for those hard to shop for dads during Father’s Day, and they’re a playful and powerful update to his vacation look as well. So this week in the journal, we’re sharing some fashion inspiration and showing you how to weave a men’s kimono robe into his style. Here’s the new summer staple for his wardrobe: the men’s kimono robe.

A Men’s Kimono Robe for a Backyard Barbecue

Hosting a backyard barbecue this summer? Well there’s no better way to dress up shorts and a t-shirt (or just shorts!) than with a men’s kimono robe. Pick out one of our Charmeuse Collection pieces so if it gets hit with barbecue, it’s easy to wash at home. We love the way the floral designs are elegant yet still fun. He can style this to be an open long kimono cardigan by sliding the sash off. Or he can keep the sash on and tie it in the back for some added interest. If you’re wanting a cool way to stay outdoors and keep the sun off your back, a bathing suit and a men’s summer kimono robe is the perfect combination. However he styles his men’s kimono robe, a backyard barbecue with all its summer fun, is the perfect place to show off his hottest summer look.

Slow Summer Mornings and Kimono Robes for Men

The best part about summer? The day doesn’t really begin until about 11 am! While that may not be true every day of the summer, we hope you do have those days on occasion. And when he does, it’s a perfect time to take it slow in his kimono robe for men. If he wears sweats to sleep in, a kimono wrap is a great way to uplevel his everyday bathrobe. He can slink around the house with velvet trimmed cuffs that provide a little extra weight and structure to the men’s kimono robe. It’s one way to make a slower morning more meaningful and bring a little extra luxury to the start of his day.

Gifting Kimono Robes for Men this Summer

Dads, brothers, husbands, and male friends can be incredibly hard to shop for. But summer is a great time to try out gifting a kimono robe for men to your favorite man. With Father’s Day around the corner, surprise the dad in your life with a silk kimono robe for men that makes him feel like the amazing guy he is. Summer birthdays are another great chance to gift something extra special, and if you’re getting married — don’t forget about the groom! He can wear his own kimono robe for men while getting ready, or gift matching partner kimono robes for the big honeymoon. Men’s silk kimono robes are always a hit for gifting, and summer is a wonderful season for trying out kimono fashion from day to night.

Time Off with a Silk Kimono Robe for Men

For the man in your life who works so hard, treat him with a silk kimono robe for men and a little time off from work. Whether you’re going to vacation or staycation, taking time off to slow down, be intentional, and take a deep breath, looks good on everyone. We love a silk kimono robe for men as a luxurious way to lounge around the house as much as we love to pair it with shorts and a tank during a late morning walk. Whatever activities he likes to do when he takes it easy, a silk kimono robe for men is one way to make it a little extra luxurious.

We love to see how our male customers wear their kimono robes for men as a summer fashion staple. Remember, there’s no right or wrong way to wear it! You can dress it up, dress it down, wear it in, or wear it out. The most important way to wear your men’s kimono robe is with confidence. Feel that little bit of luxury, or gift that little bit of luxury, and remember that summer is a time to slow down, breathe deeply, and feel well, no matter who you are. You deserve it.

  • Hi Kweku, thanks for reaching out! We do not have men’s specific kimono jackets, but we do have jacket lengths available! I will pass along your request for a toggle to our product and design team for future consideration. Thanks for your kind words, we appreciate them!

  • Hi All,


    Your kimonos are Uber cool! I’m wondering if will ever make short kimono jackets for men.

    Secondly is it possible to make me a Kimono Jacket with a front toggle loop closure and one patch pocket with quilted details at collar and cuffs?
    I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Best wishes,
    Mr. Ennuson
