My CKS kimono dress, 2 in 1

Yay! So thrilling to read your fun reactions on the first showcase of my capsule collection for CKS! The Essentials by Polienne collection has been launched for the press and public, which means that you can shop everything RIGHT NOW. Hurray! Read more about this collaboration right here.

The piece I can show you today truly breathes the concept of the entire collection — namely having only a few essential items that you can wear in a gazillion ways. Let me introduce you to the kimono shirt dress!


It’s long, it’s soft and it’s super sophisticated. A structured shirt dress is a must-have in every closet, because it can function for so many occasions: work work work, a shopping afternoon or even a Sunday morning at home (add cozy socks!). Here I styled this little stunner for a feminine date night look, featuring velvet platform heels and glitter socks — again. I added a few dainty accessories and wore my biggest smile: all ready for a romantic night out!


But this isn’t just a regular dress. We of course call this piece a kimono dress because, apart from wearing it as a closed shirt dress, you can easily feature it as a loose jacket, with the option of closing it with a cute ribbon. I combined it with the matching shirt and a pair of boyfriend jeans, but go ahead and mix prints with the striped knit! I reckon that the light blue blouse would look stunning underneath the kimono dress as well.

What’s your favourite option for this kimono dress, open or closed? Find the entire collection right here and in store right now!
