They were great for their time and it's hard to beat for being quiet, but soft leather shoes like those were used for thousands of years literally all over the world. Only reason we associate then with Native Americans is they were still using them until pretty recently.

Not great protection for your feet though, and little ankle support. Also lets in mud and water very easily.

Well, okobo are usually worn by maiko, apprentice geishas. But you can wear them with very beautiful clothes to complete it even if you aren't a geisha.

You'll usually see more getas and zoris.

The so-called "China dress" is a bastardization hybrid of Manchu Qing dress with European dress. True Chinese dress is the source of the Kimono.

Fuck the Qing. They ruined Chinese fashion with their ugly straightjackets and queues.

Patterns and embroidery were mostly for status. The poor would have still had very simple clothes. You could also look into the dress of poor and more chaotic times when patterned clothing was considered too much of a luxury even for nobility.

Yukata : Summer kimono, light, one layer.
You usually don't wear anything under, and just normal sandals.

Kimono are usually everyday clothing, multiple layers of different fabrics. Usually worn with other accessories and tabis.

Exactly.
You can wear normal kimono in matsuri too, but they're heavier and warmer, so it's less common.

Kimono would be what rich girls would wear at home?
>>
>>110335775
I'd say rich girls and traditional family.
It's still clothes from the past, most of the time it's used for festivals, and special events like graduation and such.

I don't think a lot of young girls wear them everyday, it's probably a question of tradition in the family.
Mature womens seems to wear them a lot.

It does look good, so I can see why the mature women wear them a great deal.

Also it emphasize the breasts well. Or maybe that is just anime.

It's true, but anime overexaggerate.
It does emphasize breast since the obi hold them, but it doesn't pour out of the fabric like often shown. The material is rather heavy.
It does work on a yukata though.

Was gradient skirts a thing back then?

I doubt so, it seems quite advanced for medieval times.
Or maybe a more basic gradient.

why do kimono look so good in 2d, but boring in real life?

What does a regency dress look like then? I do hate the big poofy bell dresses.

As someone going to Japan, is there anything I should pick up so I can be more like my animu?

Definitely buy a few kimonos and practice wearing them around town before you go.

For poofy as all fuck you would have to go to pre-Revolution France. This is a 1819 dress, only missing gloves.

If you're traveling back in time to Sengoku era Japan, be sure to have a yukata.
If you're going to modern Japan, wear a business suit. Don't forget the tie.
