Daily Life :: Traditional Clothes
A lasting impression for any visitor to Vietnam is the beauty of the women dressed in their long gowns called ao dais. It is a body-hugging, sweeping tunic with long sleeves worn over loose, flowing trousers that brush the floor. The tunic has a high neckline and side slits from the waist to the hem.|
Colors often indicate the wearer's status ...
Men once wear a variation of the ao dai with shorter and fuller tunic. Today, men generally wear it for traditional dance or music performance during ceremonial occasions.
