If you’re looking for something that’s not quite a sweater and isn’t nearly has heavy or structured as a jacket, the kimono might just be the thing you’re looking for! It’s a great piece for summer…breezy and colorful but gives your arms some coverage. Some are plain and some heavily patterned like mine.

Today I’m pairing mine with a simple black tank and skinny jeans. For work I’m putting it with black booties but if I was wearing this out, I would probably do some heels. You could easily do this look with flat sandals though too and it would look just as stylish. Keeping with a casual vibe I’m adding this great black fringe bag. I just love this bag…it can work as a clutch style like I’m showing here but it also has a shoulder strap.

Gold jewelry accents finish off the look.
