I swear by kimono cardigans for summer for many reasons. My first reason is because they are lightweight andlayer perfectly over a t-shirt and jean shorts or distressed denim with heels. Then of course, I like to wear my sheer kimono cardi over my favorite black crochet swimsuit for extra coverage when I’m not swimming. There are basic long kimono dusters or ones that are floral and have a more boho style vibe which you know I am obsessed with. A few of my favorite places to shop this trend is Amazon, Target, H&M and of course, Nordstrom. Here are 20 long kimono cardigans for summer you will be obsessed with.
Had to add this picture of Wyatt because it was too cute. Honestly, as a mom, wearing these easy kimono cardi’s make life simple when I’m trying to get dressed and I’m in a rush. It’s non-complicated way to dress up an outfit in my opinion.
I wear long kimono cardigans during the summer a few times a week or more because I find them so easy to throw on and make an outfit look cute. I also rock them at the pool almost every day during the warmer months because in Austin, TX it’s freaking hot and my three kids are swimming daily. I feel like the shape of these sheer wraps are slimming and I love how flowy they are over any outfit. I have several sheer Kimonos that I have purchased from Amazon for under twenty dollars and some from Target and Nordstrom. I have a basic black kimono cardi, several floral and a few with lace details.

I love this floral kimono cardigan so much and I wear it all the time. Sometimes I let it flow in the front or I tie it in the front. I am a very petite person at 5’1 and 115 pounds and it doesn’t look overwhelming on my body shape. Sheer Kimono cardigans for summer are meant to be oversized and flowy next to your body shape.
