What Is The Difference About Kimono And Yukata

There is a difference between a kimono and a Yukata.

A kimono is more traditional than the yukata. The yukata is more casual than the kimono one. Actually, the kimono’s fabric is made out of silk or brocade. The yukata fabric is made out of cotton. The kimono is bought to be worn year round. The yukata is bought to be worn in summer or hot spring. Mostly men and women wear kimonos but mostly women wear yukatas. Kimonos are more expensive than yukatas. When wearing a kimono, socks have to be worn but when people wear yukata you don’t need socks. However, ………… both of them have an important rule, you have to wear the left panel over the right panel and both men and women can wear these clothes.
