How To Upgrade Your Look With Just One Item: The Kimono

I think we can all relate to having days where you just can’t be bothered to get too dressed up with your outfit. Maybe you didn’t get enough sleep, or maybe it’s laundry day – all of us have days where only a simple tee and jeans will do. But there’s a chic piece of Spring outerwear that is not only super comfy, it’ll instantly upgrade your look with barely any effort.

Enter: kimonos! I cannot tell you what a huge difference a simple, detailed piece like a kimono, silk robe or caftan will do for your look. They add plenty of character and print, turning your outfit from basic to fabulous, in a matter of seconds.

Beach weather is almost upon us, and for a recent visit to Manhattan Beach (which I had never been to before, even though I’ve lived in LA for 9 years!) I sported this gorgeous maxi kaftan which felt perfect for the breezy weather. It was only fitting I match its pretty red print with red mules for a little pop. Of course, the beauty of being able to style a kimono during the warmer days ahead of us is that it is very versatile, so you can wear virtually any simple tee or cami, some denim (including shorts), and sandals and you will come out looking chic as ever.

It has vitamin C for brightening my under eyes (perfect after sleepless nights), and nourishing peptides to help firm skin and get me looking refreshed.
