The sundress has pretty much become synonymous with summer. Seriously, what's the first thing that comes to mind when you think about what to wear to a summer picnic? A sundress. Or what about a summer wedding? A sundress. It's almost impossible to step outside without seeing someone rocking the seasonal must-have between the months of June and July. But the fashion girls who really want to stand out this summer are turning to another trend—the kimono dress—and celebs like Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, and Kate Moss are already on board.
Kimono dresses are just as cool and breezy as your favorite sundress, but they deliver a bit more edge with lingerie-inspired fabrics and billowing sleeves. And what we love most about the kimono dress, is that the wrap effect creates a universally flattering silhouette on every body size and shape.
