Hats You Can Wear with a Japanese Kimono

Hats You Can Wear with a Japanese Kimono

So you bought a beautiful kimono (or yukata). Now it's time to purchase some accessories, which are as important as the kimono itself! Let's start with the hair. Floral hair clips and fabric hair bows are some of the popular choices, but do you know hats can also work wonders? Here we list four types of hats that can help you achieve a trendy and modern kimono look! 


These classic French caps give an elegant chic vibe when pairing with a long winter coat, and they look super fun and sweet when pairing with kimonos! For yukatas, try a lighter color fabric and material (such as cotton) for a breezy, summer look.

They're perfect for yukatas! A plain, simple boater hat can give you a young, playful appearance. Want something fancier? Buy boater hats with cute pre-tied bows, faux flowers, or faux fruits.

These retro hats made a comeback since the loyal wedding. Consider adding them to your kimono outfits for any nighttime events to spice up the look.
