A furisode (振袖, lit., “swinging sleeves”) is a style of kimono distinguishable by its long sleeves. Furisode are the most formal style of kimono worn by young women in Japan. In the present day, furisode are by default considered to be formalwear, despite the existence of some yukata (informal summer kimono) with furisode-style sleeves; the furisode is generally worn for formal social functions such as tea ceremonies and weddings.
