Traditional Japanese Kimono Yukata – Blue
This stylish, classic design kimono yukata is comfortable to wear, ideal for relaxing. With a delicate floral design of beautiful pink flowers on a blue background, offering both comfort and sophistication.
Yukatas are a more relaxed, lightweight and less formal version of the traditional kimono. As the Yukata is unlined it is great for keeping cool in the summer.
The traditional Japanese Kimono Yukata looks more formal and dressy in the image as it has been paired with an obi, which is the traditional Japanese belt, without the obi, it looks less formal and has a far more casual look.
A Yukata is ideal for wearing to the beach, as loungewear around the pool, relaxing at home, or as a dressing gown or bathrobe.
How to Wear the Kimono Yukata
If you are intending to wear your Yukata in Japan or around Japanese people it is very important to cross the left panal of the Yukata over the right, it is considered rude to cross them from right to left as only the deceased are dressed with the right panel over the left in a kimono.
In Japan a yukata is commonly worn amongst young Japanese for street festivals and anime conventions.
