20 Style Tips On How To Wear Maxi Kimonos

Since style from the early 2000s has been making such a big comeback lately, it should be no surprise that dusters are popping up in the fashion world again. In case you’re unfamiliar with the term, dusters are long sweaters, vests, or jackets that usually go down to your ankles (or almost to your ankles). In the early 2000s, they were, uh, pretty tacky looking, but the ones being worn right now are actually very cute (I say that now, but we’ll see what I think in 10 years). At the moment, you’re probably seeing a lot of maxi kimonos (another form of a duster!) on Instagram and such.

Duster kimonos are actually a pretty great “outerwear” type of item to wear during the summer, because they’re very light and airy – so they’re good for the nights you’re chilly, but it’s still kind of warm outside. When worn right, they look chic, unique, and fun. Maybe you’ve seen them around and wanted to try them out, but you weren’t sure what to wear them with. That’s what we’re here for! Check out these style tips on how to wear maxi kimonos this summer. They’ll quickly become a wardrobe staple!

1. Create an easy, breezy outfit by wearing a maxi kimono over a romper. Add sandals and you’re good to go!
