Is it a dress? Is it a cape? Is it a kimono? Trick question – it’s all three (and then some!). The Kimocape is a straight-up style saviour, here to rescue you from wardrobe boredom with its (virtually) endless styling options. It’s hard not to be totally taken with a fashion piece that’s really comfy (that’d be the super-soft rayon fabric), guaranteed to score you compliments (thanks to the beautiful, easy-to-wear prints) and insanely versatile (did we mention there are six ways you can wear it? And that’s just for starters…). Plus, it only comes in one size – suitable for most ladies up to size 16 – so you don’t have to faff around getting your waist measurements bang on. This is fashion made EASY.
Not sure how to rock your Kimocape to max its styling potential? We hit up the Aussie seller Miss Lilly for her six favourite styling ideas…
1. Asymmetrical cover-up
How to: Use the buttons on the shoulders to create an asymmetrical top. Perfect for layering over swimmers, and a great option if you are breastfeeding as there are buttons on both sides!
2. Tie-up top
How to: Take the points of the fabric and tie it around your waist like a top. You can tie it high (as shown above) or loosely knot the tips of the fabric together for a more draped look.
3. Long cape
How to: No effort required for this look – simply throw it on over jeans and a cami to step up a casual outfit or dress it up for after dark with your go-to LBD and statement earrings.
4. Slimline kimono
How to: For a more slimline effect, take some of the bulk out of the fabric by tying the end points behind your back. No one will see the knot, and it’ll give your Kimocape a sleeker look.
5. Waterfall jacket
How to: Take each point of the fabric and button on the same side using the buttons on the shoulders. This will make the Kimocape shorter and more like a waterfall jacket.
6. Wrap dress
How to: Wrap your Kimocape over a slip or slimline T-shirt dress and use a waist belt to cinch it in, creating a boho-style dress that’s just begging to be taken out for a cocktail!
