The Mystique of the Long Black Kimono Robe

In the United States, there are certain colors that are always coupled with certain holidays. For Halloween, it’s orange and black, with black being the most powerful color of the season. From black witch dresses to black spiders to images of the black night sky, it’s a mysterious and powerful color and one that brings those same qualities to your kimono style. This week, we’re looking at the mystique of the long black kimono robe.

Demystifying the Symbolism of Orange and Black

Bustle has written that “the colors of orange and black were chosen intentionally [to represent Halloween] because they function as ‘opposites’.” With orange being a warm color, represented often by fire, it brings in the idea of light. While black, of course, brings in feelings of darkness and mystery. These opposites give us a season where light and dark are at play and people can feel their inner mysterious spirit rising to the surface.

Bringing Out the Power in Your Kimono Style

We love the mystery that’s inherent in the color black, but there’s another quality to it that makes black such a dynamic visual. According to color psychology, black gives protection from external emotional stress. Because the color is the absorption of all color and the absence of light, there is a protective quality to the color black. We love the idea that black brings out the mystery, protectiveness and power of whoever wears it. And that’s why we think a long black kimono robe is the perfect kimono style for the season.
