How to Wear a Haori Jacket?
As haori are loose fitting, they're easy to wear. They slip easily over bare shoulders and other outfits. What’s great is that you don’t have to wear them with a certain dress as they can be worn over almost any dress be it winter wear or lightweight summer clothes. When it comes to versatility, the haori is the best!
A Sneakpeak to History of Haori:
It was introduced to Japan through China around the 6th century. During the Heian period (794-1185), it became more widely used in Japan as daily clothing for both men and women. Haori were worn over kimono and were often decorated with elaborate designs. They could be made from a variety of materials, including silk, brocade, and velvet.
In the early 1900s, the haori began to decline in popularity. It was replaced by more casual clothing such as the zoot suit and later by Western-style suit jackets. However, in the 1960s, traditional Japanese clothing underwent a revival due to the rise of the counterculture movement. Haori began to make a comeback; they were frequently worn with miniskirts or Western-style clothing inspired by rock music fashion.
Buying a Haori?
Buying a haori can be expensive. It's one of those items that is worn only on special occasions, and so even if you're just looking for something to wear to one wedding, it still might cost you a hundred dollars or more. But despite the relative expense of buying a haori, I'd say...it's worth it.
There are a few things you should consider before spending your hard-earned money on a haori, though. The fit, the fabric, and the design are all important factors to think about.
3 Things You Must Consider:
- The fit of a haori is key. You want it to be comfortable and flattering. If it's too big or too small, it won't look good on you. Make sure to try it on before you buy it.
- The fabric is also important. You want something that will be comfortable to wear and that will last. Try to find a haori made from natural materials like silk or cotton.
- And finally, the design is important too. You want something that will look good on you and that you'll be happy to wear. Choose something with a design and color that you love.
All of these factors are important when buying a haori, so take your time and think about what's best for you. Once you find the perfect haori, I'm sure you'll love it!
