While social distancing continues to drag on for many of us, some locations are beginning to open up into a *cautious* kind of normalcy. During this drawn out transition from staying at home to being more in public, I wanted to highlight one of my favorite pieces to wear currently: the kimono/shawl/duster!
I’ve started to throw my patterned robes/kimonos/shawls on over a basic tee and leggings to feel more put together and take a break from constant sweatpants and workout clothes. It’s such an easy edition that elevates my outfit and honestly makes me way more cheerful! I love a good minimal-effort mood booster!
The great thing about these pieces is that they not only function as elevated lounge-wear, but are a perfect lightweight addition to add style to your look during transitional weather. As we start to go outside more often, these pieces serve as a light cover-up if it’s a bit chilly out or as sun protection if it’s hot but you want your arms and shoulders covered. It’s also such a simple item to throw on over your comfortable quarantine clothes if you head out on a social distancing walk with friends and want to look more put together!
Here are a few of my favorite kimonos, shawls, and dusters online right now! And one of the great things about these pieces is that so many are size inclusive, too!
Zappos Gold Floral Kimono ($36), Nordstrom Blue Duster ($28), Free People Rising Sun Kimono ($98), Alice and Olivia Reversible Floral Kimono ($297), Anthropologie Yellow Kimono ($128), Lucky Brand Red Kimono ($32), Trina Turk Paradise Plume Kimono ($100), Nordstrom Rack Yellow Floral Kimono ($30)
I hope these beautiful patterns and prints brighten up your quarantine wardrobe and give you an easy way to transition from social distancing attire to more socially acceptable outfits!
