What is a yukata?
A yukata is a casual, summertime garment from Japan. It resembles the more formal kimono in basic design, but it is unlined and is usually made of cotton. Yukata also come in fewer variations than the kimono; the sleeves are never elongated, the collars are never wide or layered, and the patterning is usually repeated and rarely asymmetrical.

A typical yukata ensemble consists of a cotton undergarment (juban), yukata, obi, bare feet, sandals (geta), a foldable or fixed hand fan, and a carry bag (kinchaku). The left side of the yukata is wrapped over the right side and secured with an obi sash tied in a bow with the excess or with the koshi-himo and traditionally the bow is placed in the back. Yukata are often worn with wooden sandals called geta, but tabi (socks) are not usually worn.

Yukata are a common sight in Japan during the hot summer months.

As a cosmetic override:
The cosmetic override would not deviate from the traditional design of the Japanese yukata. The male override would feature a striped or geometric pattern with varying shades of the override's base color. The female override would feature a floral pattern with flowers of a lighter shade of the override's base color. Both overrides would feature an obi (sash) of a contrasting color. The male override would not include trousers.

The override would be recolorable in any color of the player's choice. The color of the decorative patterns on the yukata would be varying shades of the player's chosen color. The obi's color would contrast with the override's base color and would change according the player's chosen color (e.g. blue yukata with pink obi, red yukata with black obi, or purple yukata with yellow obi). The geta would be black with recolorable straps.

as a person very interested in the orient, I support thee!

(would also love a long sleeved version that billows when we walk/run) ;)

That sounds like a furisode, which is different than a yukata. They're traditionally worn by unmarried women during formal occasions. A male character wearing a furisode would draw some controversy, so a men's kimono should be substituted in it's place.

Support. How about a sakura-motifed one as well?

Sakura blossoms are associated with Japanese culture and would be a great design to go with. I think a lot of players would go for that. :)
