#japanese haori #kimono jacket. Meant to be work over kimonos in chilly weather. These jackets are perfect for bathing suit and chilly weather. They are not supposed to cross closed, so they are left open to reveal a bit of what is underneath. These versatile little jackets make great party wear, or can dress up a pair of jeans. And no one else will ever have on what you’re wearing! Haoris seem to be a well kept Japanese secret. You can now wear something so clearly Japanese for any occasion. Very striking and so different from what other people wearing. I think of them as one of Japan’s secret treasures.
