I was inspired by a kimono friend who wore an “East Meets West” outfit with a collared shirt under kimono. You can sometimes see old photos of men who wore such a style during the later part of the Meiji era. It looked so cool, that I had to try it myself!
I went for a more “manly” look with the colors and style. I wore the obi quite a bit lower, and tied it in the Karuta musubi. It’s still quite a bit feminine though haha!
You totally can’t tell, but I’m wearing these amazing earrings in honor of Valentine’s Day having just passed: Like this, but in earring form. Wish I’d gotten a pic of them being worn.
