Hello! Would you consider wearing just pieces of hanfu with other clothing (such as just the top of the ruqun with jeans, or maybe beizi/banbi with Western style clothes) as part of the hanfu movement? Is hanyuansu considered part of the movement?

Hi, thanks for the question!

Yes, I consider wearing hanfu pieces with other non-hanfu clothing as part of the hanfu revival movement. I also consider hanyuansu/汉元素 (hanfu-inspired fashion) to be part of the hanfu movement. Keep in mind, though, that there are also people who don’t consider these to be part of the hanfu movement. I used to be more “orthodox” (I didn’t accept anything besides traditional hanfu), but now I consider hanyuansu and combining styles to be essential parts of the hanfu movement.

Like you mentioned, you can wear just the top of the ruqun with non-hanfu pieces such as jeans, or miniskirts, like in the examples below:

You can also wear just the qun (skirt) with different types of tops. This is the most common way to wear hanfu separates:

Feel free to get creative – like this combination of a chest-high qun with a turtleneck top:

It’s also popular to accessorize with a piece of hanfu outerwear, such as beizi:

And hanfu ku (pants) are easily paired with other pieces, such as this simple camisole and weimao-inspired hat:
