Please put away your big bag, business bag. Because delicate tight Chinese dress will make the bag seem to be really large, no matter which kind of bags it is. Dapper retro purse or a delicate handbag can be a good choice.

Second: we should pay attention to the color of the bag
Monochrome cheongsam is relatively easy to make collocation with, you can just choose the same color of the cheongsam or some harmonious color can make the whole feeling become very good. If you are chasing the pursuit of elegant, the color of the bag should be similar with the cheongsam, such as purple, pale purple dress can be matched with a handbag; if you are chasing the pursuit of lively and bright atmosphere, you can try to use two different colors, that is, contrasting colors, such as sky blue dress matched with a pink handbag.
You can try to choose one color which existing in the dress patterns, as the color of the bag. For example, the Chinese dress is yellow, and then yellow or red handbag can be selected.
Black, white, gray are universal colors, no matter what the color is, you can easily choose a bag to match with the dress. This pack of three colors is cool colors, which can be used to match the dress, which can be especially beautiful.
Tan, brown, coffee colored bags are more suitable for those Chinese dresses with warm colors, such as yellow Chinese dresses, orange Chinese dresses and so on, which can leave a magnificent mature impression.
So, when you are choosing a bag to collocate with your dress, you should pay much attention to the colors. Then how to choose the right one can be decided according to your own taste as well as your cheongsam.

Third: we should also pay attention to the texture of the bag
Compared to the leather made purses, the kind of handmade with decorated with pearls, tassels and other delicate elements can allow you to make the collocation be more beautiful and eye-catching.

13, wedding banquet: nowadays the western wedding ceremony combined with Chinese style is quite popular in Chinese weddings. And in the evening, the guests can enjoy the ceremony together. And the bride can take off her wedding dress and dresses in another dress to toast to all the guests one by one.

14, seeing the visitors out: after the completion of the reception, the couple should stand in front of the door to see all the guests out and say thanks to them. And several guests need to stay at the groom’s home, waiting for teasing the new couple, which I will mention in the following paragraph.
15, teasing the bride and the bridegroom on wedding night: this can be viewed as a little disaster to the new couple; depending on the couple ever teasing others in the other’s wedding ceremonies, or testing the new couple whether they will always be honest and so on. This action will be done by the new couple’s best friends or some older people who have some experiences.

With the development of economy and knowledge, new couples in many places will just choose several steps from these processes to hold their wedding ceremonies. And if you are a foreigner, and you really like Chinese culture, then you could try all these steps or just choose several of them to enjoy the atmosphere. Chinese culture is beautiful and amazing, if you really enjoy it, you can find more shiny spots from such traditions.

Because some people think that the Chinese dress is not suitable for daily wear, and they are more suitable for various types of parties. Actually the style of the cheongsam can be changeful, they can have amorous feelings, and they can also be fashionable and nifty.

Thought simple cheongsams are vey noble, they are not vulgar from any aspect. If the design of the cheongsam is relatively simple, then the fabric is using will be high end to make the feeling of the whole dress become much more elegant. And this simple cheongsam is not so flirting; many young women can also choose this dress to wear if she likes the Chinese dresses.
Cheongsam has the flavor of ages, so a lot of people think that cheongsams only fit those women who have charm to wear, so only in this way can the women have another amorous feelings, leave the deepest impression for others. Cheongsam has both western-style passion as well as the Chinese style graceful and restrained feelings. The cheongsams are noble, enchanting but not vulgar. So if you want to leave a beautiful posture among the crowd, the Chinese dress can be the best choice. The base is black, with some dark red peonies embroidery on it. The blooming flowers are charming and delicate, while the color black and dark red is mysterious. If this cheongsam can be worn in the woman’s figure with years precipitated experiences, accentuated the showily temperament. The both sides of the splits can show woman’s slender legs curve very well, and the buttons on the collar are antique, which retain the style of Chinese dresses. And the style of the original hem can form a sloping radiant. Unlike those traditional cheongsams, this cheongsam is simpler and more elegant.

If someone said that the Chinese dress is only used to add amorous feelings for the older women, then this can be wrong. Because cheongsams can also have other temperaments, for example, the cheongsams can be simple and elegant.
Young woman will not buy cheongsams, they will just stand in front of the cheongsams, mostly due to the elegant fractious of this kind of dresses, cheongsams can not only show the nobility, and it can also show a pure, fresh and natural feeling as well. The light pink, light purple, white, shallow blue are scattered gradually on the cheongsam, to form a picture just like the gouache pattern. No gorgeous namby-pamby feeling and it can reveal a little low-key feeling and the elegant temperaments, so it is also very appropriate for the daily wear. This kind of style is more suitable for those young woman who born in the scholarly family, holding up a long hair, like a blooming orchid, which is not bright, but refreshing. Compared to all kinds of other dresses and skirts, a cheongsam deserves to be collocated with a slightly retro style coat, to show the unique temperament. Cheongsam is the representative of Chinese culture, we should show respect to it and at the same time, cheongsam itself is very beautiful, many pretty girls will like the design of the cheongsams. And for those young girls, light colors can be the best choices for them if they really want to have cheongsams, because dark colors are more suitable for those older fashionable women.
Many people think that a cheongsam is only suitable in the summer, but if the Chinese dress is made of thick satin, then even in the winter, this dress can easily be worn, in order to cooperate with the thick cheongsam, the fur can be very heavy at the neckline, cuffs. The fur can also be appropriate to added to match the dress, a lively and clever temperament can be revealed in an invisible way. As the traditional clothes of China, if you like Chinese culture, then you can have a try of this cheongsam.
Cheongsam waistcoats can also be used in any situations

No matter the cheongsam is with a noble feeling or an elegant feeling, or has the simple but elegant temperament which likes the orchid, in this era of fast food, all these can be viewed as a “China”. “This cheongsam is really good, but I won’t wear it and touch it!” Miss Chen who is choosing the cheongsam said like that. The Chinese dress is beautiful, but there are not so many people who want to wear it, this can also be the reason why cheongsams cannot be seen in the road.
So, after we find this problem, we make some new improved cheongsams to fit the taste of the crowd. Therefore, this kind of the cheongsam is more popular with the public. Those improved cheongsams mostly retained the cheongsam’s main features, such as front opening (a kind of Chinese-style jacket with buttons down the front), buttons and so on. Some modern fashion elements can also be added, such as a layer of lace can be added to the hem of the cheongsam, which can be more fashionable and breathtaking.
To make it more convenient to wear, the design of the cheongsam was improved into a brief short vest style, still uses the traditional lotus leaf collars of the cheongsams, tightening the cuff, and keep the design of the chest called as the front opening. But the improved cheongsams are more handsome, collocated with skirt and shorts can show a flamboyant vitality. And you can also wear a pair of boots to make it more comfortable and fashionable.

 

Blue Cheongsam

Blue Cheongsam

Cheongsam is the product of the cultural exchange between China and the western countries, but at the same time, the Chinese dress still retains its own unique aesthetic characteristic. And the way to express sexiness is different. For the western country, they think that to be frank and to be bold can be the basic tone of sexy. However, in China, people think that only the implication, grace and restrained temperament can be called as the point of sexy. Hazy feelings can make others think that you are a sexy beauty. The Chinese dress absorbs the beauty of the curve which is invented in the western country. And the slit of Cheongsam is created as the finishing touch of Chinese dress. Such dress is very suitable for those people who enjoy Chinese aesthetic culture. In order to give people unlimited reverie, the slit is made to show the legs vaguely. The slits of Cheongsams open the door of sexiness.
However, in the early age, Cheongsams don’t have any slits, because of the implicit and restrained characteristic of Chinese woman. So as one Chinese nation’s traditional clothing, Cheongsam should be restrained and implicit too. The dress can cover your figure from the collar to the ankle. This is the characteristic of early cheongsam. And the cheongsam is also keeping advancement with times, and continuous improvement makes cheongsam become more and more beautiful. Though it is restrained, it also has flamboyant characteristic.
Only one line can cut out the infinite and amorous feelings. Under the seemingly prosaic slits of cheongsam is instinct enticement. This is probably the sexiest place of Chinese dress. For those long cheongsam, the slit is cut from ankle straight to the waist, so any one who is wearing a cheongsam, when she is walking on the road, she must walk slowly and leisurely. If you see her from the side, you can find that amorous feelings have been revealed.
Completely different from the gaudy sexiness, even when the cheongsam do the sexy thing, it is subtle and introverted. The gleaming snow white skin can make people have lots of imagination. The cheongsam can make people have the feeling “still holds partly concealed”. Only this can arouse people’s curiosity and imagination. So, though the slit of Chinese dress seemingly simple, this is not only a simple line.
We should know that the supreme realm of beauty should be simple. And the cheongsam has formed the temptation to the ultimate point, and the clothing pornography has been raised to the art level, which is so lovely. Just this line, I do not know that how much effort of senior designers has been involved in. As an old saying goes” good faith due to open stone”, the simplicity of the Chinese dress has now become a fatal temptation, and it is favored by more and more Chinese women now. When you walk on the road and see a woman in cheongsam, you should stand by and enjoy the beautiful scene which presented in front of you.

So, actually, just from the Qing dynasty, with the implementation of hair cutting e-service, the silk made buckles had begun widely used in various types of clothing.

Introduction: Cheongsams are the garments which can highlight the advantages and characteristics of those Chinese women, they are graceful and restrained, noble and elegant. But if we unlock a couple of buttons, or change the height of the slit, the sense of flirting can be developed at once. So cheongsam is honey to somebody as well as the arsenic for the other people, which should be treated differently. The cheongsams should be chose according to the occasions, the ages and the statures. Only in this way can you wear your exclusive style with those seemingly popularity dresses. Because sometimes, though the dress is really beautiful, if you wear the wrong collocation, it might be really stupid.

Recently, our first lady Peng Liyuan’s a series of photos of Chinese dresses have caused wide attention around the world, known as the “Li Yuan style”. Peng Liyuan was really elegant when she dressed in the cheongsam and she can give people the dignified feeling. This action has pushed the cheongsam to the cusp of fashion of the traditional clothing of China once again. Cheongsams can really show the advantages and characteristics of oriental women, because those clothes are graceful, restrained, noble and elegant. And you can unlock a couple of buttons, and change the height of the slits, so in this way the deep sense of flirting style can be shown again. So cheongsam can be called as honey and arsenic at the same time, they need to be treated differently due to the occasions, the age and the statures. You can wear your own style with those amazing cheongsams.
The minefield of the cheongsams
First minefield: high slits of the cheongsams
In the traditional Chinese aesthetics, the height of the cheongsam slits directly determines the moral outlook level of the cheongsams. In the early 20th century Shanghai, the gradual rise of the Chinese dress had even been criticized as being a prostitute by some people. Actually, with the passage of time, no matter in which era, cheongsam can bring specific reserved and gentle feelings for the oriental women. Though in the sexy part, it can also reveal an attitude as black Venus. My suggestion is that if you don’t need to do a performance with those cheongsams with high slits, you can give up. Because high slits dresses can be called as slatternly dresses.
The second minefield: the figure just like wrapped dumplings
The beauty of Cheongsams is highly pointed at the fit beauty in appropriateness, but if you show your shape defects when you wear this dress, it might be really embarrassing. For example, the pants are a little tight, which can make some tighten trace on the body. If you usually wear loose clothes or those with crisp fabric, they can cover these problems. But when you wear the cheongsam, every lines will be shown directly, because cheongsam is really tight. The beauty of the cheongsam is just to show the charm of your body itself. So, when you choose a tight cheongsam, it’s very difficult to disguise the flaws of body. In this case, what should we do? The first point is that you can’t choose those too tight dresses to wear. The second point is that you can wear the underwear backing inside the cheongsams on those formal occasions.
The third minefield: how to deal with a bent back
Even like the actress Chen Hao who wears the perfect effect of cheongsams, if she doesn’t have elegant postures, she will also seem strange in the cheongsams. Some girls may be hunchbacked, who we are not talking about. Those tough girls who want to be elegant to wear a cheongsam as fair ladies, if they walk with the large length stride, or throw off their arms time to time, these actions can all show their true personalities immediately.
The fourth minefield: Unlock the buttons
The way of unlocking buttons when you are wearing cheongsams, the embarrassing point is just like the one with high slits. So far, I have not ever seen one lady wear like this in normal circumstances. Because most of us think that wearing a Chinese dress to unlock the buttons will not be really beautiful. Expect the picture of Eileen Chang in the “Contrasts “. If you want to wear the same effect just like Eileen Chang to wear unbutton cheongsams with your own characteristic as well as charm, unless you have the frivolous unruly, having the talent which can help you challenge the world.
The fifth minefield: Large flowers patterns
Many European and American stars will choose cheongsams with large flowers when they make the interpretation of our cheongsams. They may prefer to choose large flowers to be the patterns, plus the unabated printing fashion trend of this year; I believe that there will be many people choose cheongsams with large flower patterns after this summer. But in fact exaggerated printing or pop pictorial are not tractable for the cheongsams. Because of that we oriental women have the different features from the European women and those from the United States. Big flower will grab off the facial features of us.

Every woman has one dream about cheongsam in her heart. As we all know, cheongsams can make the figure of us much more charming than usual. We all want to be the princess when we are little children, and now, as the time past, we began to hope that we can turn into a fair lady. And Chinese dresses can help us reach this dream. The characteristics of cheongsams are elegant and simple, which really fit the definition of a fair lady.

Chinese dresses have been developed from the lower class to the higher class. And we can find that cheongsams could show the real self in a good way. We should also chase the footprints of the trace of the cheongsams. This Chinese dress is made out at first in Shanghai and had been popular in a short period. Women in upper classes all like them very much. They like the designs, like the lines, like the patterns, like the styles, like the temperaments.

The skeleton of Chengdu women is smaller, which can make it easier to wear a cheongsam. They can wear the central idea of the cheongsams that “adding one more inch is too large, cutting one inch is too small”. A sexy girl cannot sure to achieve a better effect wearing cheongsam than those girls with the A cup. Because the beauty of Chinese dress is undertone rather than showing off.

Garment Edition
Chinese dress should be best customized, because the readymade edition might be difficult to fit the figure. From an economic point of view, you can also buy garments. Going to the shop is the best choice. If you have to choose the online shopping, you can first carefully measure the measurements. When you choose a cheongsam, you should choose the one with the size fitting you or better choose the one larger than your size. Because different shops may have different size tables, so you’d better to ask the customer service at first whether the size is true. If the cheongsam is a little lager than your size, you can ask someone else to modify the dress to the size fitting you well. If you choose the wrong size which smaller than your accurate size, you cannot wear the cheongsam with the best effect or even you cannot dress in it. Girls and ladies are recommended to choose those short cheongsams made of cotton cloth, which can give people the fresh feeling and make others feel that you are the girl just beside his house. In our China, the girl next door means that you are a beautiful girl who is easy going and there will be many boys love you. In other words, if you choose a short cheongsam with an appropriate hairstyle, you may become the goddess of them.

Customized version
For most of people, customized clothes may be a little troublesome. But there are a lot of advantages about such dresses. For example, you will get the most appropriate dress for yourself. No matter in the color aspect or in the size aspect. In Chengdu, there are many ordinary fabrics and a large number of good fabrics in the tailor shops. The basic price can be from few hundreds to one thousand or more. That’s according to the materials of the Chinese dresses. There are a lot of different fabrics, such as silk, cotton, linen and so on. Different fabric will have different prices. In fact, cheongsam can not only be dresses in spring and summer, but also can wear them in autumn and winter seasons. But you should custom a cheongsam with thick fabric which is suitable for autumn and winter.

Dignified and generous temperaments are the best interpretation of the Chinese Dresses
The characteristics of this kind of dress is elegant and simple, they can be subtly changed according to different occasions. If you need to attend a formal occasion, you might need a long cheongsam, because long dress can highlight your elegance in a better way. And if you are invited to a cocktail party, or a dancing party, you can choose the short cheongsams. So you can be look like a cute girl. And it is easy for you to dance to the tone. As the Chinese traditional costumes, elegance and natural can also be the interpretation of the Cheongsams. And you should keep this in your mind, no matter which kind of Chinese dresses you chose, you should pick some accessories or some other things to fit the dress as well as your hairstyles. The whole feeling is the most important.

Key number one: a standing collar
The standing collar of a cheongsam has been extended to the coat, which can give people a solemn sense, so they can be dressed in especially formal occasions.

Key number two: fit tailoring
The fitness of the Chinese dress is directly deciding the final effect of the cheongsam. Chinese dresses all believe this idea “adding one more inch can be larger, cutting one more inch can be smaller” . So in Chinese tradition, fitness is very important.

Key number three: changing into a set
A type straight dresses will have a problem that if sedentary sitting, there will be some indecent creases appearing on the abdomen, especially if the dress is using the kind of silk or cotton fabric which is easily to be wrinkled. Once you met this situation, you might feel really embarrassed. So decomposed the dress into one a set of Chinese dress, retaining all the characteristics of the Chinese dress, which can be a clever approach.

Key number four: High heels
If you are wearing cheongsams, you’d better to wear high heels. Because high heels can show the elegance of you well. If you don’t have any high heels, you can use middle heel shoes. That’s the least requirement. Because ordinary length of cheongsam is over-knee, if you don’t have any high heels to make your stature much higher, even though you have slim legs, the whole image of figure would still be strange. High heels can make you higher and much beautiful than those flat shoes. And once you wear the high heels, you have to walk upright, which can make the posture much more attractive as well. And high heels are the representative of sexy, if your dress is not so sexy, you can add the sexy point from the high heels. What we need is the whole feeling. Though the Chinese dress is the most beautiful dress around the world, if you wear wrong collocations, it might still be depressing.

All the tips above I mentioned, you can read as a reference. Indeed, you should choose the dress according to your own appetite. If you only like garment instead of customized dresses, you can also choose them from online shops.
