What Is The Traditional Vietnamese Clothing?

Clothes In Vietnamese

If you’ve ever traveled to Vietnam or seen photos of Vietnam, you’re probably familiar with the traditional Vietnamese clothing known as an áo dài.

In Vietnamese, áo means “shirt,” and dài means “long.” So, when you put the two words together, the Vietnamese term refers to a “long shirt.” If you’ve ever seen an áo dài in person or worn one yourself, you know it’s like a tunic over trousers. What’s fun about this garment is that you can find it in every pattern! But, if you still can’t find one you like, you can even have one custom-made with the exact pattern you want.

If you happen to be in Hanoi, don’t forget to visit Luong Van Can Street, where you can get fitted for an áo dài. If you want to see even more beautiful patterns, you can head to the city of Huế, which is known for its áo dài.

Typically, men and women wear the áo dài for special occasions, such as weddings, graduations, and the new year festival. However, you might see some female high school teachers wearing it. Nowadays, the áo dài is even worn in the famous “Miss Ao Dai” pageants, which have caused the garment to gain significant attention from those overseas.

There is even an áo dài festival held every year in San Jose, California, by Jenny Do. Since San Jose is home to a large Vietnamese community, the festival aims to showcase áo dài from international designers. Looking at recent áo dài designs, you might notice that a shorter, more modern version is becoming more popular. This is known as the áo dài cách tân and is often worn by the younger generation.

Fun Fact: Did you know that the áo dài is one of the few Vietnamese words that appear in the English dictionary?
