The mystical “chipao” (Chinese dress)

16 Apr

Modern women in China mostly wear Western clothes.  So I was always on the lookout for the chipao.  They were usually found in storefront windows and not on the Chinese fashionista.  Young women were dressed very fashionable, while older women wore plaids and flower prints together.  I’m not knocking plaid or flower prints.  But, they are not meant to be worn together though.  Do you agree?


These are some of the beautiful dresses in the window.
