I haven’t finished it yet.
Saw a video on Chinese fashion through the dynasties. To be frank, it was pretty inaccurate; one of the reasons was that of the choice of photographs was terrible. Those are modern clothings, and most of them are not even hanfu.
Modern hanfu are very different from the historical clothing although they might carried description like “Tang style”. Retro fashion doesn’t mean one actually totally covered in one’s grandparents old clothings. In addition, fashion changes through time. Trying to represent a dynasty, which was usually period of a few hundreds years, is like using 80s neon footless tights to summarize everything people wore for the last 300 years.
I am just going to briefly go through an example from each period style. I am not professional as well. Here are a book on historical clothings with lots of artefact pictures (中国织绣服饰全集) and a website with lots of modern hanfu (汉服荟) for one to observe the difference onerself.
