When it comes to versatile outerwear, you just can’t go wrong with a kimono jacket.
Featuring the billowy silhouette, it is truly flattering and versatile if you know how to style it in the right way!
For the days that I want some light coverup, kimono is always my favorite. It’s just effortlessly stylish and chic with a dash of chic resort vibes.
Whenever throw them on, I just feel more carefree somehow. Such a mood booster!
So ladies, here are the 7 ideas if you wonder how to wear a kimono with jeans!
1. PAIR SOLIDS WITH KIMONO JACKETS
To achieve an effortlessly chic look, pairing up the solids with kimono jackets is a no-brainer.
As kimono jackets are filled with busy patterns, they can easily look clumsy if your tops and jeans are colorful and overwhelmed with prints.
Instead, wear solids for the top, and jeans can always bring out the color contrast and make the kimono look more pop-up.
If you want a cool-girl look, wearing classic black is a no-fail choice.
For me, I love pairing a white V-neck tee and jeans with a light blue kimono jacket for a refreshing summery look!
2. EMBRACE MONOCHROME TO LOOK TALLER AND SLIMMER
If you are not new to kimono jackets, it’s time for you to embrace the monochrome style!
Basically, this tip is similar to tip 1 but in an extended version.
Instead of pairing a black kimono jacket with a contrasting color, pair it with the same color! With one color palette, it just makes your body look taller and slimmer visually.
Of course, tone-on-tone styling doesn’t mean you can only wear the same color! You can always get creative with different similar tints and hues.
For example, you can wear a cream top and jeans with an ivory kimono cardigan as well as a pair of beige loafers!
For a monochrome look, I do prefer all black. It just somehow looks really high fashion and makes me look more put together ♥
3. STYTE KIMONO JACKET WITH FLARED JEANS FOR A BOHO LOOK
If you prefer boho vintage looks, style the kimono jacket with flared jeans just will never disappoint you. Such a combo.
Featuring the bell-bottom flare design, the jeans help draw people’s attention down and make your legs appear to be longer.
And for the “floor-length” jeans, you can hide the high heels or wedge sandals under the jeans and look at least 4 inches taller!
As for the girls who opt for skinny jeans, you can also pull up the boho style with gladiator sandals or suede boots.
To enrich the look, throw on a summery star hat and nice hoop earrings just work wonders.
4. WEAR THE KIMONO ROBE WITH THE JEANS
Can we all take a moment to appreciate this look as this is absolutely stylish?
Instead of wearing the kimono robe on top, you can literally treat it as a dress and wear the skinny jeans underneath for a diva look.
With a pair of nude heels or cowboy boots, the look is just so on point. You can also belt your kimono long jackets for the same effect too.
I’ve never thought of pairing the kimono jacket with jeans in that way – it’s just refreshing and gorgeous!
5. PAIR KIMONO TOPS WITH JEANS FOR A REFRESHING LOOK
If you are getting bored with classic kimono jackets, what about kimono tops? I really wish I knew this design earlier as it’s truly flattering to our bodies!
The big V-neck just helps elongate the neck and make our face looks smaller relatively.
Plus, the kimono jacket tightens and accentuates the high waist and that just makes you look better in body proportion.
If pairing a T-shirt with shorts is too typical for you, try wearing the kimono top for the low-key exoticness.
6. TIE THE KIMONO JACKETS TO ACCENTUATE THE HIGH WAIST
For the long kimono jackets, people think it hides all their curves and thus does not really flatter their body.
Well, if you are not that into a boxy silhouette, why not front-tie your kimono jackets?
With the front knot, the kimono jacket can hugs your curves better, and also you can accentuate the high waist again!
One of my favorite summer looks is to pair the lace bralette top with the front-tucked kimono, shorts, and espadrille wedge sandals – just chic and lovely!
This is so random… BUT
7. WEAR A SHORT KIMONO JACKET FOR A VERSATILE LOOK
If you are petite like me, I get it, wearing a long kimono jacket can be overwhelming.
Well, let’s not forget that’s always a short version!
Plus, this design can be flattering if you have a narrow shoulder as a kimono can slightly broaden your shoulder visually.
With a V-neck top, skinny jeans, and heels, you just look effortlessly chic.
Want to look taller? Feel free to match your jeans and heels in similar hues to lengthen the leg!
