In the previous article, I have told you that the shape of Hanfu can be roughly divided into three categories. That is: underskirts, tops and bottoms and dark clothes. However, the category of tops and bottoms often also includes skirts. Since the underskirt is more common when people wear Hanfu, today, I will use it as an example to explain!

1. Underskirts

The jacket, that is, the short top, is classified according to the style, including double-breasted (also known as straight collar), crossed collar (also called slanted collar), flat collar (also called U-neck), etc.; skirt, which is the lower skirt, is usually a one-piece apron. , classified according to the production method, into pleated skirts, piece skirts, etc.

Underskirts are divided into waist-length underskirts, high-waist underskirts, chest-length underskirts, etc. Wear it with a half-arm skirt, also known as a half-arm skirt. Can be worn with a shawl. Sleeve styles are not limited to narrow sleeves, there are also straight sleeves, wide sleeves, wide sleeves, etc.

The characteristic of the underskirt is that the top is short, the skirt is long, and the skirt is tied above the waist to show the slender figure. Use cloth belts or palace ribbons for skirts, not wide belts or girdle.

2.Dark clothing

The curved robe is a type of deep robe. The back piece of the robe is lengthened, and the lengthened skirt forms a triangle. Curved trains are divided into single winding, double winding and triple winding based on the number of lapels. According to the length of the clothes, they are divided into long and short trains. Usually there is a girdle around the waist and a long belt tied with a knot.

The emergence of the curved train is related to the original crotchless trousers. It is more reasonable and more polite to have such a few layers of protection for the hem. Therefore, the curved train and dark clothes were more popular from the pre-Qin to the Han Dynasty when the hakama was not invented. Moreover, Quju can be worn by both men and women.

The straight train is a type of deep clothing in the Chinese clothing culture system. This kind of clothing has appeared as early as the Western Han Dynasty, but it cannot be used as a formal dress. This is because ancient trousers did not have a crotch, only two trouser legs that went to the knees and were tied at the waist with a belt.

This kind of crotchless trousers is worn inside. If it is not covered by outer clothes, the trousers will be exposed. It was regarded as a etiquette taboo at the time. Therefore, you should wear a robe outside. Later, with the improvement of clothing and the increasingly complete clothing system, the form of trousers also changed, and crotch trousers appeared.

Due to the improvement of underwear, the skirted skirt, which was more popular in the pre-Qin and early Western Han Dynasty, was gradually replaced by the straight skirt because it was cumbersome to wear.substitute. After the Eastern Han Dynasty, the straight train gradually replaced the curved train and became popular and popular.

What everyone needs to pay attention to is that the zhijing robe is usually a kind of daily attire, not a formal dress. Can be worn by both men and women. There are long straight trains, short straight trains, fishtail straight trains and other styles.
