Beach vacations mean one thing: it's time to kick back and relax. 

For a vacation in the sun, finding the perfect outfit that combines style and comfort is essential. Enter the timeless kimonos from Shop T.K.S! We strive to create items filled with beauty, inspiration, and connection. 

Originally hailing from Japan, kimonos have gained immense popularity with their modern silhouettes and styles. We took inspiration from the original design and have created popular styles such as beachwear staples and robes that are enjoyed around the world. With lightweight fabric, breezy silhouettes, and exquisite designs, the kimonos from Shop T.K.S offer endless possibilities for creating stunning beach ensembles.

In this article, we’ll guide you through the art of styling a kimono for your next beach vacation, ensuring you feel chic while soaking up the sun.

Choosing the Right Kimono For You

First things first, selecting the perfect kimono sets the foundation for a stylish beach look. At Shop T.K.S, we offer gorgeous kimonos in lightweight fabrics like cotton and silk, which are the perfect materials for breathability and flow as they dance alongside the ocean breeze. 

When it comes to patterns and colors, embrace our range of vibrant florals, which has many options to choose from, depending on your style and the overall vibe you want to achieve.

Understanding your body shape is crucial when selecting a kimono so you feel incredibly confident while catching the rays. 

Here are a few tips to help you choose wisely:

  • Hourglass shape: Emphasize your waist with a belted kimono to accentuate your curves.
  • Pear shape: Opt for a kimono with an open front and flowing fabric to balance your proportions.
  • Apple shape: Look for kimonos with a V-neckline and longer lengths to elongate your torso.

All the kimonos at Shop T.K.S come in a wide range of sizes, from XS to 2X!

Styling Your Kimono as a Beach Cover-up

One of the most practical ways to style a kimono is by wearing it as a beach cover-up! Simply drape it over your bathing suit for a touch of elegance and class, allowing you to go from water to drinks at the beach bar in one swift moment. 

The kimono's loose and airy design allows for easy movement and provides coverage while still showing off your swimwear. To enhance your beachy vibe, opt for a long, flowing kimono that reaches mid-thigh or ankle length.

In addition to its style benefits, a kimono beach cover-up also offers practical sun protection. The lightweight fabric acts as a shield against harmful UV rays, providing an extra layer of defense for your skin. This makes the kimono a functional and fashionable choice for enjoying your time under the sun.

Using Your Kimono for Effortless Layering

Another way to style a kimono is by incorporating it into your everyday beach attire. Pair a cute kimono with a lightweight camisole and your favorite denim shorts or a breezy maxi skirt. The kimono instantly adds a layer of sophistication and flair to your outfit, making it perfect for strolling along the shoreline or enjoying beachside cocktails.

For a more structured and refined look, consider belting your kimono at the waist. This styling technique creates a flattering silhouette while adding a touch of glamour to your beach ensemble. 

Making Your Kimono a Versatile Accessory

Aside from being a stylish garment on its own, a kimono can also serve as a versatile accessory to elevate your beach vacation outfits. Why not wear it as a sarong or even use it as a beach blanket for lounging in the sand? The possibilities are endless, and this flexibility makes the kimono an essential item for your beach vacation packing list!

Wearing Your Kimono for an Evening at the Beach

Every good beach holiday should include an evening at the beach! Transition seamlessly from daytime to evening by utilizing the kimono as a statement piece in your nighttime outfit. Select one of our luxurious kimonos and pair it with a top, tailored pants, and elegant sandals for a sophisticated night out. The kimono's ethereal aesthetic combined with the right accessories is the perfect pick for a glamorous evening. 


Styling a kimono for your next beach vacation is a wonderful way to showcase your fashion sense while embracing comfort and versatility. With our styling tips in mind, we hope you’ll feel effortlessly chic in your Shop T.K.S. kimono during your next beach getaway!
