The fascinating flower dress
When do you wear a qipao?
The qipao is a beautiful piece of clothing that is worn by many Chinese women. This garment is worn for both special occasions and informal occasions. The only difference is that no accessories such as a necklace, handbag or sunglasses are worn on a special occasion.
The dress is always painted with Chinese animal or flower patterns or other Chinese paintings. The dress is worn by young and old and will remain one of the most popular pieces of clothing in China. Now see the ''Courtesan Ogiya'' from the Asia collection from Walljar! This is a beautiful example of a qipao in Asian art.
Shape of the woman body
The dress is made in such a way that it emphasizes the shape of the woman's body, but does not make it too sexual. For example, the neck, arms and legs of the woman are visible.
In addition, the shape of the qipao ensures that the shape of the woman is reflected. This is because the qipao has a tight waist. In short, the qipao allows the women to look beautiful and elegant without being dressed too sexy.
The garment of the Japanese woman
When do you actually wear a kimono? The kimono is a Japanese piece of clothing worn by Japanese women. The garment is generally worn for official occasions such as a wedding.
There are different rules about how the kimono should be worn per occasion. Long sleeves are worn on one occasion and short sleeves on the other. In addition, two layers of the kimono are worn from December to May and one layer from June to November.
