Kimono / Chiffon Cardigan

The kimono, as I like to call it, is also known as a sheer cardigan, a cape, an open blouse or chiffon top. Despite name calling, there are a few things to keep in mind while shopping for a kimono… the fabric should be a sheer, lightweight chiffon or silk-like material and the fit should be loose and flowy, with long, wide sleeves. The length of the back just depends on what type of look you’re going for and what you plan to wear it with. A longer kimono is more dramatic and fashion forward such as the pink kimono below from LF La Jolla. A shorter version, hitting around the back pockets of your jeans is a great look too. I suggest pairing the kimono with bell-bottom jeans or shorts.
