Difference Between A Robe And A Kimono
A kimono, in the traditional sense, is actually a floor-length and often very expensive Japanese garment worn only on special occasions such as weddings and at important ceremonies. Kimonos are often heavily decorated depicting tales of Japanese folklore in the weave of the fabric. In western fashion, the word kimono has become widely used to describe a wide-sleeved robe. Kimono have become hugely popular in recent years and can be worn in private, to cover nightwear or as outerwear with jeans, shorts or swimwear in summer months.
