I'm completely against the concept of cultural appropriation and I think it's a bunch of retarded leftie nonsense.

However.

Wearing a kimono to a dinner party or a formal is a bit gauche if you ask me. I'd say it's something of a social faux-pas if you're not Japanese or at least not well-versed with Japanese custom.

Really, if you're going to a dinner party, the thing to do is to respect the host and wear a cocktail dress or evening gown (depending on what kind of party it is) not make up your own dress code that's outside of your own norms. That's the point of a formal. It would be like going in a gentleman's morning suit. It's a kind of formal dress for *someone* at *some occassion* - just not for you, or for this occassion.
where would you reccomend I wear it? I'm curious because I'm not one for wearing dresses in public on a day to day basis.

I suppose as a dressing gown. That's all you can really do with it. You don't have all the stuff to go with it - the belt and all that, and you don't really know how or when to wear it otherwise.

Like I said - I don't find this kind of thing in any way culturally offensive - it's just a bit.....bad mannered socially. Put it like this - if you went to a dinner party in a wedding dress, people would rightly think you're a nut. That doesn't mean the wedding dress isn't nice, or that it can't be worn to a certain occassion - just not the one you wore it to.

I suppose if you had your own party and wore it that would be ok.

You should host your own dinner party. It's a great thing to do.

Can definitely picture people asking you why you're wearing your dressing gown outside if you were to wear it somewhere.

You could wear it over your pyjamas when you do the shopping at the supermarket.

Japanese people absolutely LOVE gaijin adopting their customs. Wear it.

Even if they didn't, wear it anyway.
