Nice to meet you! In this issue, I would like to talk about how to find the perfect yukata for you and some tips to remember when wearing a kimono.
The yukata is a traditional Japanese costume loved at summer events and festivals, and is worn by many people even today.
Because the yukata is cool against the skin and relatively easy to put on, it is valued as a fashionable summer attire.
The yukata has a long history and was already popular as a kimono for the general public in the Edo period (1603-1868). Even today, designs and materials have evolved and many variations have been created. However, when wearing a yukata, you need to pay attention to several points. So, here are some tips on how to find the perfect yukata for you and points to keep in mind when wearing a kimono.
Things to consider when choosing a yukata
Summer festivals will soon begin! You want to enjoy wearing a kimono with a yukata during such a season! There must be many people like that. However, there are several points to consider when choosing a yukata. First, choose colors and patterns that suit you. Just because the pattern that that girl was wearing was cute does not mean that it will suit you. It is important to choose colors and patterns that suit you according to your hair color, skin color, and eye color. Choose colors that you are good at and set yourself apart from others!
Next, know your size. A yukata will be very difficult to wear if it does not fit you. In particular, be sure to check your waist size, as the obi fastening point is located at the waist. Sleeve length and length is also important. Choose the one that fits your size, and you will be sure to get the right fit.
Finally, it is also important to consider the time and effort required to dress yourself. Some people may think that wearing a yukata is fun, but dressing it up may seem daunting. But don’t worry! Recently, yukata with a front board, which can be easily put on, are available. Even those who are not good at dressing or those who are wearing it for the first time can put it on with ease. Also, be careful how you match accessories and sandals. This will transform you into an advanced fashionable person!
How to arrange a yukata
The way you tie the obi changes the impression. To make your yukata look great, pay attention to the way you tie your obi. The tomesode knot gives an elegant impression, while the han-haba obi or ribbon knot is recommended if you want to create a cute look. On the other hand, for a more mature look, unique knots such as the strawberry knot or crab claw knot are recommended.
Add cuteness by arranging your hair. Once you put on a yukata, arrange your hair to match the yukata. Even a simple braid or bun will double the cuteness of the yukata. Adding a hair ornament or kanzashi (hair pin) will make your yukata look even better.
Make a difference with accessories. Zori and bags are essential accessories for yukata. White zori are a good choice because they are versatile and can be easily matched with other colors and patterns. Bags can make a yukata look more gorgeous by bringing bright colors and cute patterns. You can also add an obi clasp or accessory for a more fashionable look.
The key to how to arrange a yukata is to make it look better while expressing your taste and individuality. If you pay attention to how you tie your obi, arrange your hair, and use accessories, you will surely shine more brightly in your yukata.
Points to keep in mind when wearing a yukata
When wearing a yukata, it is important to pay attention to how the zori and bag are matched. The color and design of your feet and accessories can make a big difference in the overall impression. Also, it is difficult to walk in zori that you are not used to wearing, so be careful with your feet until you get used to them.
And when wearing a yukata, you also need to be careful how you walk. A common posture is to walk with your feet together, but this is a movement performed during traditional Japanese dancing, and it is especially uncomfortable when wearing a yukata. Try to walk as you normally would.
Finally, yukata should generally be worn indoors. Modest attire is preferred, especially in public places. Wearing it outdoors may cause it to float, depending on the location and circumstances.
If the above points are taken into consideration, you can enjoy yourself with confidence when you go out wearing a yukata. However, no matter how perfectly you dress, if you do not have a smile or confidence, you will be ruined. Be confident in yourself and enjoy wearing it!
