🏆 "Perfect for summer."

"Lightweight" and "versatile" are how many Amazon shoppers describe this "elegant" smock.

"Perfect for summer," one shopper commented, complimenting the "flattering" cut of this "true-to-size" cover-up.

Another reviewer appreciated the "breathable" lightweight material and loved how adding this to an outfit helps "dress it up a little."

The fit was a hit with one reviewer who ordered a large, saying at 5'4" and 150 pounds, the shirt "fits nice and loose" over a shirt or tank top.

The three-quarter-sleeve kimono was very well received by one shopper who, now that she's older likes to cover her arms with a "pretty" shawl like this.

One person mentioned that while they were impressed with the cardigan's "beautiful fresh appearance" and "wonderful details," they wished there was a "tiny hook" or "button fastener" on the front.

Another person described the sleeved shawl as just "okay," while someone else said they "look like pyjamas."


Versatility is key when selecting new items to add to your summer wardrobe. Between unpredictable air conditioning and breezy summer dinners on the patio, it's best to be prepared for whatever turn the temperature may take.

This lightweight kimono provides ample coverage while also offering a nice dash of style. I'm a cover-up kind of gal, especially at the beach, where I can get a little modest about having my mommy middle on display. A sleeved shawl like Chicallure's summer cardigan is a great way to add a bit of coverage so you can enjoy your vacation or time by the pool.
