The Haori (羽織) is a traditional Japanese hip- or thigh-length jacket worn over a Kimono.
Haori are can be worn and styled as a jacket/cardigan over regular clothes. They are worn open with lapels hanging straight down and ties to hold them together. Haori are usually broad fitting garments making them ideal for layering in colder months, and have mid length sleeves that are practical for everyday wear.
This Haori features a lightweight fabric that is cool to the touch and is ideal for warmer months. It will drape nicely and complement any outfit and is the perfect cardigan for the beach.
