qípáo (旗袍) is a body-hugging one-piece dress for women. It can display Chinese women’s softness and beauty. Qipao is elegant and gentle. Unlike other costumes, Qipao is simple and complicated: simplicity in its features but complication in design. When wearing Qipao, women should pay attention to the match as a whole; particularly middle-aged or elderly women should do so. Hairstyles, jewelry, socks and shoes should match Qipaos properly in color and design.
