The sleeves have been cut a little shorter just to avoid them hanging a bit too low. To give it a more funky look there are different accessories like bows, stars, beads etc added to them.
How to wear a Kimono
1) Wear the white socks first as it will later on be difficult to wear them when you have put on the robe and the belt.
2) The traditional undergarment worn beneath a kimono is next to wear. It consists of a white top and skirt.
3) Now put on the kimono with keeping in mind that the back seam is perfectly in the centre. This is the most important part and will add grace to your outfit only if you take care of the seam.
