However there are parts which have their little differences. You will find out what is the difference between a kimono and a yukata below.

The fabric

While yukata are usually made of cotton, kimono can be made of a wide range of different fabrics such as cotton, silk, wool or synthetic fibers, and can be weaved in many different ways.

Scene to wear

Kimono are often worn at new year eve or parties or at formal events such as weddings and funeral.
Yukata on the other hand can be worn as a housedress or nightclothes or at at more casual events like festivals.

Origin of kimono and yukata

The origin of yukata began during the Heian period ( 794-1192 ) when an aristocrat used it to enter a steam bath. By wearing a yukata, it prevented getting burn from hot water vapor. Kimono also started during the Heian period and is said to have short sleeves which is called “Kosode” .
