Autumn is almost here, so why not start the new season with a new haori! haori are the coats that are normally worn on top of the kimono. They make a stylish and fun statement when paired with western outfits such as a shirt and pants of your choice! Lightweight, easy to wear and require no additional accessories, haori are great additions to any wardrobe.
When first wearing haori, it is important to remember that they are designed to hang open and never close in the front. This often makes them a good choice for people who may be too busty to fit comfortably in a kimono without carefully looking at chest binding options. The reason haori they are meant to never close, it is because when worn with the traditional Japanese kiimono, they are meant to accentuate the kimono. The kimono worn under the haori should never be fully covered, instead leaning towards a more layered style and appearance. The coat worn with a kimono that closes completely in the front is called a michiyuki.
Haori also make great gifts for anyone interested in Japanese culture who wants a practical everyday item that they can enjoy without the complexity of traditional kimono.
