Asian fashion is hitting the fashion scene! A more chic and stylish replacement for normal cardigans are kimono jackets. Its elegant flow, delicate fabric, and bold prints give your simple outfit a complete level-up. Style icons and stars like Olivia Palermo, Miley Cyrus, Nicole Richie, and Nicky Hilton were spotted on the streets sporting a kimono jacket achieving the perfect balance of elegance and comfort.

This very versatile clothing piece can be easily worn at night or in daytime. For a day look, you can pair it with a simple black  tank top and jeans then accentuate with a long necklace. For evening wear, grab your bandage skirt and colored tank (like what Deputy EIC Marla Miniano did in last month's 31 Days of Style: Dressing Up For The Holidays) and finish off the look with a statement necklace. You can also use this at the beach as a cover-up for your dress or swimsuits for a more stylish and colorful island girl outfit. If you're going to use a kimono jacket with loud prints, use subtle and simple accessories to make your look put together. Just make sure to balance your look from head to toe.

Take your cue from these fashion bloggers who show off some of their kimono jacket outfits and pick from the wide selection of kimono jackets in the slideshow below.
