Sometimes when you are getting dressed especially when the weather is warmer, that your outfit lacks a finishing touch. This is because in summer you wear briefer and lesser clothing and this means that we avoid the use of a jacket as the weather does not warrant it. This means while you are pretty cool and comfortable with the shorts and t-shirt that you are wearing at the beach, the approach to the beach may make you feel self-conscious about your brief outfit. You need a cover up to put on top of the shorter outfit that you are wearing. A kimono top or shrug or an open cover up in the kimono style would work very well. It would make your outfit take on the look of interesting irregular hem dresses for an intriguing look.
The kimono cover up is perfect for summer because it has those loose sleeves that are long and sweeping and this is important due to the perspiration factor of the hot and humid summer days. While you always have the choice to wear enchanting and comfortable embroidered cotton dresses, this may not work very well for those occasions where you have to be more active and move around. The kimono cover up thrown casually over a brief skirt or shorts is a nice option as a smart casual wear for the younger women as well as the more mature ladies.
We all know that there are some days of the month when we feel a bit bloated and not quite in shape as we usually do and the kimono cover up can also work for these days apart from being used in the summer months. It would be a good idea to look for and shop for some colorful kimono cover ups that can work with many outfits. The idea is to buy these in lighter and floaty materials so that they do not quite stick to the body, but at the same time do not make you look bulkier.
This is a simple concept that will work when you have a series of errands to do ending in a social event. In such cases, most of us wear the clothes that we want to wear to the social occasion like a party or date when we set out from the home. But these outfits can be a tad more revealing when we are shopping or running errands or even meeting older relatives. In such instances, one of the simplest solutions is to wear a kimono cover up on top of whatever outfit you are wearing. This way it is easy enough to remove the kimono cover once you are ready for your party or date.
In fact, if you are even out to go swimming, just adding the kimono top as a cover up will work very well till you are ready to swim. The thing is you can add the kimono cover to any outfit, even if there is no necessity because of the way it makes you look and feel. The only caution that we feel that you should exercise is to ensure that the cover up is light and flowing. If you pick out one that is made of thick material and too stiff, then you are in the danger of making your silhouette look stockier.
We are sure that you will as usual enjoy the images we have given here for kimonos to wear. You will find that it is indeed useful to finish the outfits you are wearing with a lighter and more attractive touch.
