How to Wear a Kimono as a Guy

In the ever-evolving world of fashion, traditional garments often find themselves reimagined, redefined, and embraced by diverse cultures. The kimono, a classic Japanese robe known for its exquisite craftsmanship and timeless elegance, is no exception. While traditionally associated with women’s fashion, the kimono has broken gender boundaries and become a stylish choice for men looking to make a unique and culturally rich fashion statement. If you’re trying to pull off this vibe, here are a few things you need to know.

Choosing the Right Kimono:

1. Consider the Occasion: 
Your kimono should align with the event or occasion. Opt for a silk kimono featuring traditional patterns like our LAYO for formal gatherings. Try lightweight cotton or linen options with simpler, contemporary designs for casual settings, and our YENI is an obvious choice.
2. Select Colors and Patterns: 
Our Kimonos offers a wide range of colors and patterns. While earthy tones, subdued blues, and dark greens are popular for men, feel free to start with solid colors or subtle patterns if you’re new to wearing kimonos.
3. Focus on Fit:
A well-fitting kimono is essential for a polished look. It should be comfortably loose, and this lets you have comfortable movement.

The Kimono Ensemble: Piecing It All Together

Now that you have your kimono let’s style it! Here’s what you’ll need:
1. Kimono:
Most people secure it with a waist tie or belt, traditionally tied at the back. But you can also wear it loose for a more casual fit.
2. Footwear:
Complete your look with appropriate footwear. Geta (traditional wooden sandals) or flat sandals are common choices that add an authentic, laid-back look.
3. Hairstyle:
To complete the look, choose a hairstyle that suits your general style, hair up or down, or no hair at all! As far as you’re comfortable!
4. Confidence:
Ultimately, you’ve got to sell it. Embracing this timeless garment with a positive attitude is the best way to carry off the look.
