Pair it with heels, since the kimono robes has a rep of being a lounge-at-home outfit you would want to dress it up a little if you plan to wear it to the office or an evening event

Skinny

For a modern twist, try some trousers --  skinny jeans and cigarette pants.

In my opinion, silk kimonos look best with silk tops. Work the full look but keep it polished and sophisticated to avoid looking too pajama-esque. All you need to do is wear more accessories in the evening and you're good to go! 

Length

Mind the proportions, some kimono robes are ankle length. Stay away from looking frumpy by keeping the seams away from the floor

Accessorize

Accessories are key. You can go from daytime chic to cocktail hours just by switching up you accessories, mix and match a colourful kimono print with bold accessories for major impact.
