10 out-of-this-world kimonos you'll want to drape around you this summer.


Kimono season has officially began, someone please pass the Mai Tais.

If you haven’t yet been introduced to the world of kimono-loving women, you’re really missing out.

Kimonos are basically the summer equivalent of your fluffy dressing gown – except you can wear them out of the house and strangers won’t ask you whether you need a lift home.

Add a kimono to a simple outfit and you’ll look like you’ve put in some serious effort. Woke up 20 minutes before you’re supposed to be at work? Pop on a kimono. Spilt your breakfast on your top? A kimono will fix that. Just accidentally sent a sext to your best friend’s dad? Um, a kimono?

Maybe not that last one…

Here’s our round up of some of the best kimonos around this summer:
