Kimono are T-shaped, straight-lined robes that fall to the ankle, with collars and full-length sleeves. The sleeves are commonly very wide at the wrist, perhaps a half meter.
Traditionally, on special occasions unmarried women wear kimono with extremely long sleeves that extend almost to the floor. The robe is wrapped around the body, always with the left side over the right, and secured by a wide belt tied in the back, called an obi. Kimono are generally worn with traditional footwear (especially geta, thonged wood-platform footwear and zori, a type of thong-like footwear) and split-toe socks called tabi.
In modern times, Kimono is primarily worn by women on special occasions.
The traditional kimono design, patterns and fabrics has also given inspiration to modern fashion and given rise to stylish fusion style dresses, tops and robes which can be worn for any occasion.
