What to Wear with Cheongsam Dresses in Winter


A cheongsam is a one-piece Chinese dress that can flatter your body figure, most of them hit the knee or even shorter, and more often, they are sleeveless. They are sexy, they are catchy, and they can be wore alone in warm seasons, while some women might find it hard to choose a warm keeper to go with a cheongsam dress, when in fact, cheongsam dresses are more versatile than you might think. In this article, I’m going to cover types of women’s clothings to work with different kinds of cheongsams:

A fur top to go with stand collar cheongsam

There is a variety of choices on fur tops, especially last fall/winter. Long fur mix with short fur, fur jointed with tweeds, cotton, wool or leather, or as decor attached to the edge of collar or sleeves, and by adopting techniques like dyeing, embroidery, inlay, knitting, and jointing, fur are becoming hot and fashion. But you don’t want fur to take the lead off your cheongsam, so you can choose a high stand collar cheongsam or a cowl collar one with ankle length or knee length made with changeable silk, luminous polyester or with tweets.

Tips: to avoid the fur stealing your cheongsam’s wind, try not to choose a giant fur coat, use colors of similar tone, a match of contrast colors might be chic too. Accessories like cappas, hand bags or boots made of fur might be also a nice alternative.

Box jacket to go with long length cheongsam

Three-dimension cutting has been a hot design feature since last winter. Besides featured colors for this spring / summer, designers also blended three-dimension cutting into their new line. Use cuttings of wide upper with narrow lower portion, twisting, and lacing to show effective layering and composition. Just imagine the look of a brisk 3D cutting jacket going with a comparative conservative cheongsam.

Tips: choose box jackets with puff sleeves or with cuttings of a cape, if your cheongsam is in deep color, match it with jackets of brighter colors like light yellow, turquoise, or bright red. Cheongsams with graceful watercolor painting or flower-fish painting would be a nice decor pattern.

Long length coat to go with mid-length cheongsam

Choose a long length tang suit of similar material and design to that of your cheongsam, with details like Chinese button, stand collar. If you would like to mix western and eastern elements up, choose double-breasted coats or coats with bowknot or cowl collar. Last autumn / winter, manufacturers launched series of straight knee length coats with 3/4 , 1/2 sleeves, or with no sleeves at all. Double-waisted military coat and cowl collar coats are quite fashionable this season, and is an ideal match to go with cheongsam.

Tips: Bright colored coats would be a eye-catcher, match it with plain colored cheongsams with shadow floral to balance the saturation.
