Do Over: Cover Up With A Kimono

opener2
Yes, you've been waiting to wear your bevy of white dresses all winter long but, let's be honest, a few weeks into summer and you miss the sartorial options that layering afforded you. Don't worry, we have the perfect solution: the kimono. This traditional Japanese robe is back in a big way this seaon and will be your go-to cover up for beach days or magic-hour barbecues, adding that light, extra layer but, more importantly, jazzing up those warm-weather frocks.
