Ao Dai – Where to buy?
There are many things traditional to Vietnam that deeply impress people from all over the world. The Ao Dai is one of them. This is a Vietnamese traditional garment, worn by both sexes but now most commonly worn by women. Vietnamese people are always proud of the Ao Dai which is perfectly made to highlight the graceful curve of women’s body.
Throughout the 20th century, there have been numerous changes in the design of the Ao Dai, from floral to checkered patterns, the use of transparent fabric, variations in the neck collar, the shortening of the gown’s length and different colors of the loose pants. From necklace to splits above the waist, an Ao Dai brings to wearers the comfort to wear and move around. Pants with length above soles is an excellent combination with long flaps. Synthetic or silk fabrics are favorite fabrics to make an Ao Dai thanks to its cool and fast-dry function. In its current form, it is a tight-fitting silk tunic worn over trousers. A variety of colors is an extra point to make an Ao Dai suitable for people of all ages.
When to wear an Ao Dai.
For a long time, the Ao Dai has become a national symbol of Vietnam. In the past, it was worn by both men and women. Nowadays, the Vietnamese men only choose to wear it on some formal occasions like weddings or ceremonies. Even though people don’t wear it as often as they did before, you can easily catch a glance of high school students or a receptionist in their Ao Dai.
Unlike many other traditional costumes, the Ao Dai has still remained popular and influential in modern day Vietnamese culture. The Ao Dai is still women’s favorite choice of outfit for traditional festivities or occasions such as Tet, weddings or graduation. In some high schools and universities in Vietnam, the white Ao Dai is considered a school uniform for female students.
How to choose an Ao Dai Vietnam
The first thing you should consider is to choose the suitable fabric for your costume. People usually use chiffon, silk or lace to make their Ao Dai become light and feminine. However, for cold weather or elderly people, velvet fabric is a good choice.
Colors are also an important element. Due to your skin tone and your body shape, you should choose the color that fits. White skin tone can fit with any colors, while darker skin tone should go with yellow, brown, etc. If you have an overweight body, you should choose dark colors to make a look of a slimmer shape.
Decorations for your Ao Dai is also important in making an Ao Dai become more charming. The floral pattern is a good choice. Moreover, for more sophistication, hand embroidered is a delicate sample for you to take into consideration. Besides, the tailor will give you good recommendation and advice for customers to choose the best suitable option.
