Anything that remotely resembles a dressing gown or pyjamas, I’m on it. And, while rainy days in Ireland allow me to wrap up in cosy nightwear and my favourite?woolly?coat, as we approach summer, it’s time to?adopt the next best thing, the kimono.

Thankfully, while scrolling through Zara’s ‘New In’ section, I spotted this beautiful royal blue, silky kimono (as, below) for €59.95, which makes me feel ready?to trade in the fluffy goodness of my dressing gown for something a little more sophisticated, light in weight and brightly?coloured.

If you’re keen to try the kimono trend, feast your eyes on our shopping edit below.
