Points to incorporate Japanese elements into men's and women's fashion
Fashion can sometimes be a challenge, but it takes courage to wear a kimono from the beginning, so it's a good idea to start by incorporating "Japanese elements" into your usual fashion. I will introduce how to incorporate Japanese elements recommended for beginners.
incorporate Japanese patterns
Well-known Japanese patterns include “checkered pattern”, “seigaiha”, “hemp leaf”, “nami-chidori”, and “saaya”. Skirts, tops, and dresses with Japanese patterns are easy to match with your favorite items, so you can easily enjoy Japanese fashion. If you can't find an item you like, one way to do it is to purchase fabrics with Japanese patterns and make your own clothes.
Bring in Japanese items
Kimono is not the only Japanese fashion item. If you incorporate Japanese items into your everyday clothes as a focal point, even your favorite items will look different than usual. I will introduce Japanese items in detail in the next section.
Choose items from brands that incorporate Japanese elements into their designs
There are many types of kimono, but the number of Japanese items that can be combined with Western clothes is limited. If you want to buy Japanese items, it would be a good idea to first look for a brand that designs kimono with a modern twist.

Kimonos are also sold as used clothing, and cheap ones can be purchased for a few thousand yen. It is also possible to shorten the length to match the clothes, or untie the kimono and remake it into other items such as dresses and skirts. There are some video sites that introduce how to make them in detail, so if you are confident in sewing, please try it.
