Chinese diaspora asking here: I saw the questions about making hanfu. Would it be weird for a girl to wear men’s hanfu? I kind of want to own either a zhiju(?) or yuanlingpao since seeing the drawings of female characters wearing yuanlingpao.
Hi, thanks for the question!
It’s definitely not weird for a girl to wear men’s Hanfu! Plus, as I mentioned in my post on unisex Hanfu, both Zhiju and Yuanlingpao are considered unisex garments, as they’ve historically been worn by both men and women. Some examples:
Zhiju from 挽纱坊:
Yuanlingpao from 重回汉唐:
Especially in this day and age, you should feel free to wear whatever kind of Hanfu you like ^^ Hope this helps!
