Sometimes your wardrobe needs a little somethin’ somethin’ to get it through the seasonal transition. Not too dressed-up, not to dressed-down, we are loving the trend of kimono jackets popping up in some of our favourite labels’ new season collections. Check out seven ways to rock this awesome piece in your day-to-day wardrobe.
Monday | Breakfast With A Book at Dear Jervois
Slow start to the week? Spend a casual Monday morning with a book and a strong coffee, and team a luxe kimono with low-key jeans, sneakers and a favourite sweater at Auckland favourite, Dear Jervois.

Tuesday | Vintage Shopping in Fitzroy
Mix and match prints and patterns in a look that’s borrowed straight from a vintage store in Fitzroy. Be as playful as possible – dots, florals, graphic prints, and some killer statement jewellery to pull your look together.
Muse: Susie Bubble | Venue: Vintage Shopping in Fitzroy
Wednesday | Start-Up Lunch At Urbane
Catch up with your kickstarter/start up team over lunch at Urbane in a look that’s sharp enough to show you mean business, but casual enough to show you know it doesn’t mean wearing a pantsuit. It’s ALL about the heels, Listers.
Muse: Kendall Jenner | Venue: Start-Up Lunch At Urbane
Thursday | Beach Life On Bondi
Grab your bathers and beach towel, and hit up Bondi in your fave denim cut-offs and leather sandals - a kimono is the perfect pre- and post-beach layer.
Muse: Rihanna | Venue: Beach Life On Bondi
Friday | Luxe Cocktails At Lobo Plantation
A strong red lip colour, swept-back hair and all black everything is the way to go for a sophisticated evening of cocktails at Lobo Plantation. Don’t be afraid to rock a little uniqueness – whether it’s Twigs-esque braids or some jewellery from your world travels, a little originality goes a long way.

This season is all about festivals, and we are 100% on-board with ramping up your Laneway look to include an easy-going loose-cut silk dress and some beaded accessories.
Muse: Gigi Hadid |Venue: Laneway Festival
Sunday | Brunch Date At The Shorehouse
Kick back over brunch with mates on Sunday in a simple black playsuit, black leather boots and a wide-brimmed hat at The Shorehouse. You’ll need it after all that partying at Laneway last night…
