Have you heard of the “third piece”? That’s what stylists call a blazer, jacket, cardigan, or kimono that goes with a basic top and bottom. In the summer, I’m often wearing a tee or tank and jeans around the house, and when I go out, I like to put on something a bit nicer. Throwing on a third piece, like a cute kimono, can be an easy and comfortable way to upgrade a look.

A kimono also looks great over shorts and a tank, if you want a bit more coverage to go out and about. It’s an easy addition!
A few pretty kimonos on my radar:
