As the popularity of Hanfu continues to grow, there are more and more voices saying “Let’s integrate Hanfu into daily life”, but Hanfu for daily wear is not an easy task for some Hanfu lovers, not only should they wear complete sets of Hanfu, but they also need to match the appropriate hairstyle, accessories, shoes, and bags, which is also the reason why many Hanfu lovers are not willing to wear Hanfu every day.
But! Today, I would like to introduce to you a lovely lady who perfectly integrates Hanfu into her work life: Li Guoguo (@李蝈蝈要当红军咕唧).
Miss Liguoguo has been in contact with Hanfu for many years, and often shares her Hanfu outfits on social media. She loves to go to exhibitions, loves handicrafts, and is obsessed with the beautiful patterns in ancient Hanfu clothes. Best of all, she is creative in mixing and matching Hanfu with fashion.
In the video, she made of her Hanfu for daily and commuter style mixed and matched with modern fashion, showing four elegant and charming looks, each outfit is beautiful, with the distinctive charm of Hanfu, and the dapper charm of commuter wear. It turns out that a gorgeous Hanfu can also be worn every day.
1: Grey Checkered Fashion Top + Ginger Mamian Skirt
A short gray checkered top with lantern sleeves and a long ginger Mamian skirt are retro and cute. When lifting the skirt and walk up the stairs, the draping skirt has a gentle air.
2: Dark Green Polka Dot Narrow Sleeved Shirt + White Twill Couture Half Skirt
This shirt is a standing collar short shirt in Hanfu, and the collar is turned down, making it a fashionable shirt.
3: White Narrow Sleeve standing Collar Shirt + Mustard Green Wide Leg Trousers + Dark Blue Blazer
The Chinese buttons on the chest, which are very common in Ming-style Hanfu, add uniqueness!
4: Black Long Bijia + Black Polka Dot Dress
The fourth outfit with the strongest design, the Ming Dynasty Bijia is belted up and used as a sleeveless trench coat. Pair it with a long white and black polka dot skirt for a sophisticated and fashionable city girl.
Of course, Guoguo shared a number of Hanfu for daily wear:
A brown Mamian skirt with a beige sweater and wide leather belt.
A black knitted sweater cardigan with a bean green Mamian skirt and a small brown bag, gentle and mature enough to be just right.
There’s also this superb set of Song style airplane sleeves shirt and a two-piece Mamian skirt, plus a belt and a black hat.
Even if all the items are Hanfu, they can still be paired with a special effect: the raven blue Bijia and the white skirt are light and unique.
The floral embellishment of the shirt, more leisurely classical flavor.
For Guoguo, the pleasure of pairing it with a Hanfu is the motivation that supports her in doing so! She will match the theme of traditional Hanfu according to traditional festivals.
The Dragon Boat Festival is the color of the rice dumpling leaves and glutinous rice.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is a soft moon rabbit pattern with a light moon yellow color.
Spring and summer is the color scheme of gardenia, soft yellow and aqua green, refreshing and gentle.
Add silk scarves to Hanfu for an instant change of elegant style.
Wear a top antique hat and switch to a romantic French garden style.
In order to explore a wider variety of Hanfu for daily wear, Guoguo also tries to design Hanfu, choosing fabrics, designing embroidery patterns, and finding a tailor to make them.
Although the styles are simple and the fabrics are plain, the color combinations alone make the clothes stand out.
Guoguo shines even brighter with the love of Hanfu and the persistence of interest. Any kind of thing, which is chased and loved, must be because it can make people feel happy. It’s because of these interesting things, life, that makes people feel lovely everywhere and everything shines!
