Mandarin Dress Styling for Winter

Tactfully Put Together a Beautiful & Warm Ensemble

The look of this week still incorporates a Mandarin dress. I insist on my long-held belief which blends Mandarin dresses into daily life so this cultural style won’t be lost.

Some people say Mandarin dresses are too thin for winter. Then how to wear a Mandarin dress in winter requires techniques.

How to dress impeccably is forever a lesson women are learning.

Day 1

Actually, there is heating indoors in general, so you won’t feel cold just wearing a Mandarin dress indoors. If I go outside, I will wear a tank top underneath my Mandarin dress and use a skin adhesive heat pad. Then I won’t feel too cold. For the lower half, I will put on two layers of velvet tights. So, don’t think I’m not intimidated by cold weather. I am, but it will be fine when I use good methods to keep myself warm.

I layered a vintage coat of my mom’s over today’s Mandarin dress. Other than that, there are some little accessories. I’m a detail-oriented person. Do you see every little thought I put into this outfit?

Day 2

A Chinese-style ensemble vs a Western-style handbag. Ethereal blue vs eye-catching orange. Traditions vs innovation. Using contrast colors has become an indispensable element of today’s styling. The combination of retro and trendy items is getting on the cutting edge, too. Fashion has never had a fixed model. Creativity is forever endless.

I continue following my heart to proceed. I have never thought about getting everyone’s approval. I appreciate all the support. Fashion is not necessarily something everyone understands, but having some supporters gives me motivation.

An annual conference recently started. Everyone was competing by comparing outfits on one another. Matching a retro Mandarin dress with modern accessories, plus a bright-colored silk headscarf, this is definitely the best style at the annual conference. The wool Mandarin dress is thick and warm. You can choose one with three-quarter sleeves or long sleeves. Then it will be even more convenient for you to wear.

Day 3

Destiny really can decide many things in life. What kind of family you were born into, what kind of education you received, and what kind of people and things you encounter can all affect your fate.

My mom was a fashionista who loved to buy luxury items when she was young. Although she has given many of them away, she keeps some classic pieces, so I can go through her closet and find so many vintage items to mix and match, such as today’s dog-fur coat. Although it sounds cruel (there used to be dog-fur clothes!), when I put it on, I could not stop uttering, “Too luxurious! Too luxurious!” In the meantime, it is indeed very warm.

Mixing and matching these items obtained from some coincidences, I put together this look, because I love these items, and because it’s meant to be.

The hunter green Mandarin dress goes with an earthy-toned jacket and ethnic-themed floral wedge shoes. The retro sunglasses come with chains in the shape of a swallow. I bought them because my name contains the word Yan, which means “the swallow” in Chinese. The floral earrings match the Mandarin dress, too. The matching handbag is still a rustic specialty product of the Yunnan Province. Discovering accessories from various places is something that gives me quite a sense of achievement, only second to creation.

Whenever you are around, I feel safe and sound.
