How to Wear your Shwe Shwe Kimono

There are no rules, and thankfully, no style police who will tell you how to wear your shweshwe kimono, but in case you are looking for some inspiration - we’ve got you covered. 

Beach and pool vibe

Headed to the beach or lounging by the pool? Take your shweshwe kimono instead of a towel. Dip, wear, and repeat when you’re ready to cool off again. 

Lounging in the home

Grab your shweshwe kimono for the first thing you put on in the day. The shorter sleeves makes it easier to be in the kitchen making coffee and getting ready - they don’t snag on things and you don’t have to roll them up. Stay in the tousled hair and morning breath until you’ve had that first cup of joe. 

Festival look

Definitely some of our original inspiration comes from festivals. The bright colors and patterns plus versatile functionality makes the shweshwe kimono perfect for outdoor partying. Wear over cutoffs and t-shirts or something a little sexier. Whatever is your party vibe. 

Mama time 

New mama? Breastfeeding? Don’t have the energy to deal with dressing? Grab your shweshwe kimono and call it a day. Easy to function in and looks good.
