HOW TO WEAR.. quilted kimono jacket

Posted by Margaret Vrolijk on

The kimono jacket is the ideal in-between that fits in your basic wardrobe all year round. Her slim fit gives you the same feminine feeling as a blazer. The cotton, quilted structure ensures that it is warm and yet breathable. And the floral block print, that makes her unique. Let's style her!


A look that often occurs, in which we like to see ourselves as a woman: a t-shirt and denim. By adding the kimono jacket to this you get a nice mix of sporty and feminine. Combining pink keeps you in the color tones of the jacket. You can create another nice effect with a print on print: choose a print that also stands out in a different color tone, such as a stripe. This way, both prints remain equally strong in your outfit. Extra nice: you can also use the belt of the kimono as a belt.

# office

Is there an official office dress code anywhere? The "tight in suit" image is slowly ebbing away and chic/neat/formal can be done in many ways these days. The kimono jacket emphasizes your feminine shape through its slim fit. With silky feel wide leg trousers, a plain blouse and loafers you will get through your office day in a unique and chic way.

Elements that make a one-switch look fit for another occasion:

- combining materials
- use the print as an eye-catcher in a plain look
- a loafer or shoe with a subtle heel.

# party

Long layers. It is conceivable that not everyone finds this equally flattering. And yet so many women rock this style without knowing it. The tip is: the right contrast in shapes! This actually applies to almost every look, but the party edition is a good example.

Do you want to combine the kimono jacket with a maxi dress? Then it is best when the dress is partly fitted.

You can create any extra length with a (subtle) heel or (cowboy) boots.

A wider suit / jumpsuit can also be party-proof. Wear the buttons open and show off your neckline with subtle chains. Use the belt of your kimono jacket to create shape or choose a different belt.

Roll up the trouser legs and show off your ankle: heeled sandals, loafers or a nice sneaker will complete your look!
