Let’s Wear Yukata this Summer!
Yukata is a light, cotton or synthetic fabric kimono worn during the hotter seasons and especially during summer. They are a popular choice of attire to wear to events such as festivals and firework shows, and are an easy choice if you want to look cute (or handsome) but still stay cool and refreshed!
Basic Items You Need:
Yukata are usually sold in white, black, navy and pink! One of the most popular patterns the design with small flowers, but recently stripes, larger flowers, and other retro designs are coming back into fashion.
It may seem very difficult to wear Yukata, however it’s actually easier than you may expect! You can learn how to wear Yukata with the video below.
Although Kimono are usually very expensive, Yukata are definitely more affordable. In even more recent years, you can buy Yukata Sets that offer you the yukata, obi sash, and geta sandals altogether for a special price. On sites such as Rakuten, you can easily find a yukata set for less than $50 and even as low as $20. Higher quality sets can still easily be bought for under $100.
With items like the tsukuri-obi, or obi sash with detachable bow, it is easier than ever to wear yukata!
The most popular hairstyle to wear with yukata is an up-do. Putting your hair up in a bun, or curling it and tying it back, are all really fashionable ways to style your hair.
Recently short hair and cute boyish bobs have also become more and more popular!
Obi-Kazari, or decorative accessories for your obi sash. These are often rather simple knotted threads or strings, but a new trend for having highly decorated, necklace-like obi-kazari has been spotted in recent years.
Hair Accessories such as large, bright flowers and kanzashi, or decorative long hairpins are all popular choices to add a special touch to your yukata look.
Heko-obi is a cute and fluffy add-on to our obi-sash and is a very recent trend for yukata!
Yukata are very comfortable to wear and a fun way to get dressed up during the summer! Why not try wearing yukata during this year’s summer break?
