It’s almost New Year’s Eve, and you know what that means: it’s time to decide what to wear! We love New Year’s Eve for the festive sartorial feeling as much as for the fresh start. It’s a time to look back in gratitude, look forward in hope, and get dressed with an extra bit of flair. Your kimono robe is a versatile, go-with-you-anywhere look to take you from party to party and that’s what makes it a perfect way to ring in the new year in style.
Not everyone celebrates the new year in the same way, and that’s why we’ve rounded up our favorite kimono robe looks for every way to celebrate New Year’s Eve in style. Whether you’re going to the fanciest party in town or staying in for a night of self care with a party of one, your kimono robe brings a festive feeling to your night, while draping you in luxury and reminding you that staying present is the best celebration of all. Take a look below at our featured New Year's Eve styles and kimono outfit ideas and let the festivities begin!
If you’re headed out to the fanciest of parties this New Year’s Eve, we recommend the gorgeous and head-turning Cherry Blossom & Crane Kimono Wrap. Slip it on over your slip dress for that extra layer you need during a cold winter night without giving up any of your festive flair. The velvet trim on the sleeves and collar add a beautiful wintry touch to the soft charmeuse drape. And you can never go wrong with black on New Year’s Eve! Opt for a glittery or shimmery bottom layer to make this kimono wrap really pop.
Go For Date Night in Your Kimono Dress
Are you celebrating with just your special someone? Sometimes foregoing the big crowds for a more intimate date night is just what the new year ordered. We love this rich blue kimono dress for the romantic occasion. Wrap your kimono robe with a thicker belt, add heels, and throw your hair into a bun for a beautiful, flirty, fantastic holiday look. Whether you and your beau are headed to dinner or out dancing, your kimono dress will be the perfect way to mark the end of the year and the beginning of the next in a style that makes you feel like the queen you are.
Headed to a house party this New Year’s Eve? Your kimono cardigan is the perfect piece to serve as a lightweight layer and a conversation starter! When you’re at a house party, it’s hard to judge exactly what the dress code will be. You don’t want to go too fancy or too dressed down. And you should probably assume you might overheat (especially if you’re in a city apartment!) so finding the right layer is essential. With a monochromatic base layer, the black in this purple floral kimono cardigan pops from the soft, flowing charmeuse blend. Pair the look with fancy heels to bring the whole style together. And you can be sure you won’t overheat in this lightweight layer, but you will most certainly turn heads.
If you’re looking for a low key New Year’s Eve, that doesn’t mean you can’t wear a beautiful kimono robe. In fact, a night of self care practically begs for you to slip into something silky and just relax. Take out your sage, your rose quartz crystal, your journal, and set some intentions from the comfort of your own home. We love this beautiful silk pink kimono robe for a luxurious lounge. The silky texture almost moisturizes your skin. Slip it on after a decadent hot bath, get cozy in your bed, and bring the year to a close with a gorgeous look and feel that’s just for you.
If you’re having one of those epic New Year’s Eve celebrations, then you need a look that’s going to be easy to wear and transforms with you from event to event. If you’re starting off at dinner, this gorgeous black kimono cardigan is a sophisticated look with all black underneath. Dress it up with a tight black dress or dress it down with black jeans. Either way, you’ll look classic and elegant. If you’re next stop is dancing or a big rooftop party, your kimono robe will seamlessly transition with you as an easy lightweight layer with the perfect sway and drape. You might even get some Instagram-worthy photos when dancing in this beauty!
If you’re doing New Year’s a little bit differently and making a whole vacation celebration out of the end of the year, we are very much on board for this! Whether you’re headed somewhere warm and sunny, or to a ski resort where you can hit the slopes and then bundle up indoors, your kimono robe is the perfect piece to pack for your travels. It works as a beachside or poolside cover up, a silky bathrobe while you’re getting ready in your hotel room, and an elegant lightweight layer for dinners out at night. Wherever you travel, your kimono robe is a light piece with a million different ways to wear it, which makes it the perfect travel piece.
New Year’s Eve is a festive and fun time to get dressed up and step outside of your comfort zone. There’s an air of hope and gratitude in the air, and everyone’s ready to have a good time. From the dance floor to the couch, no matter how you celebrate, we hope your kimono robe reminds you that a little luxury can go a long way.
And please don’t forget to snap a few selfies for us this New Year’s Eve! We love to see the way you wear your kimono robes and would love to see you tag us on Instagram @kimandono_ and #swaythisway so we can celebrate you!
