Speaking of the beauty of Hanfu, I can't help but think of a poem: "The sun rises in the southeast corner and shines on my Qin family building. The Qin family has a good daughter and she names herself Luofu. Luofu likes sericulture and picks mulberry in the south corner of the city. The green silk is used as a cage. The cinnamon branches are used as cage hooks. The headband is in a bun, and the moon beads are bright in the ears. The xiangqi is the lower skirt, and the purple qi is the upper jacket. The traveler sees Luofu, and the lower shoulder is stroking his mustache. The young man sees Luofu, takes off his hat and wears a bow. Those who till the soil forget their plows, and those who hoe forget their hoes. We come back angry with each other, but we sit back and watch Luofu."

Here is a description of a very beautiful and dignified young woman, with her hair in a ponytail and pearl rings in her ears. She wears a short coat made of purple damask and an embroidered light yellow silk skirt. This kind of dress is a typical "upper skirt and lower skirt", showing an elegant and tranquil style. According to the description in the poem, this man was extremely beautiful. Flowers fell when he saw them, people were dumbfounded when they saw them, and horses stopped when they saw them. Someone drew two pictures based on this. Let's analyze them together.

Let’s look at this one first. The color of the clothes matches what is described in the poem, but as a type of Hanfu, what is an underskirt? It turns out that the ancients stipulated that the short coat worn on the upper body and the skirt worn on the lower body are collectively called Ru skirt. The upper body is called "Ru skirt" and is shorter in length, usually no longer than the knee. The lower body is called "skirt". According to the height of the skirt waist, skirts are divided into waist-length, high-waist and chest-length (seen in the Tang Dynasty). Doesn’t this look a lot like our modern classification of skirts and pants? According to the style of the collar, the undershirt is divided into cross-collar and straight collar. Therefore, this photo is not an accurate portrayal.

Looking at the second picture, first of all, the style of clothing is basically consistent. In Chinese history, there were many types of "skirts". The famous ones include the valerian skirt, the single-filament flower cage skirt, the pomegranate skirt, and the Cuixia skirt. Skirt, hidden flower skirt, bird feather skirt, double butterfly skirt, tulip skirt, moonlight skirt, phoenix tail skirt, elastic ink skirt, fish scale pleated skirt, colorful embroidered horse face skirt, etc., but obviously the use of color here Wrong. Moreover, the face shape and expression look too much like a Japanese geisha. I don’t like this one very much.

Of course, if you really want to learn more about ancient costumes, there are many descriptions in historical texts and various novels. For example, the ones in "A Dream of Red Mansions" and "Jin Ping Mei" are more realistic, and the costumes of the generals in Water Margin and Three Kingdoms look more like Costumes and outfits.

It is worth mentioning that during the Tang Dynasty, with the prosperity of the empire, the openness of ideas, and the blending of cultures, the women's clothing at that time was colorful and dazzling. From the freshness and purity of the early Tang Dynasty, the wonderful creation of nature "the lotus leaf skirt is cut in one color, and the hibiscus blooms on both sides of the face. You can't see it when you enter the pool, but you can only feel someone coming when you hear the song"; to the luxurious atmosphere of the prosperous Tang Dynasty, with snow on the chest, The Luo shirt is transparent with fat, "The embroidered shoes are delicate and slow, and the smile is late at the flower feast. The body is light and the snow is falling, and the Luo is thin and transparent with fat"; and then to the autumn dyeing of lotus root silk in the late Tang Dynasty, which is soft and desolate. "Xishi Dao Huanchun gauze, jasper today At that time, she was fighting against Lihua. Her eyebrows were as red as day lilies, and her red skirt was jealous of pomegranate flowers."...

Looking back at that time, "Every time before and after Grain Rain, on the road leading to the flower capital Luoyang", I smiled at the scenery, "The fields are covered with crowns, and beauties are like clouds. Those who appreciate the flowers have their skirts fluttering, and their skirts are blown by the wind; those who drink wine are blown by the spring breeze. Their faces and manners are graceful. It can be said that their appearance is more beautiful than peony, and their people are as red as peonies. They appreciate beauty and create beauty. The beauty of their scenes and the effect are unprecedented..."

As before, the prosperity has come to an end; as in a dream, the bright moon is still...
