When you step into any one of Chinese colleges, you can find that there are various dressing styles. As most of the boys in China are not so keen in fashion, it’s hard to tell which style of dressing they are. However, things are different in Chinese girls. Every time you see a Chinese girl, you can easily tell the style of her dressing. Actually, the dressing styles, or we say China fashion trends of college girls can be divided into three categories. I will tell you one by one in the following part.
The most common one is ‘Japanese style’. The major feature of this kind of style is cute or we say ‘kawaii’ in Japanese. If a college girl wears a t-shirt with a big hello kitty on it or a pink backpack just as the primary school kid’s, there is no doubt that she’s following the Japanese style. The popularity of Japanese style is actually following the daily-better relationship between China and Japan. But the political issue is not our key point here. Not only because of the frequent cultural communication between China and Japan, but also because the Japanese culture is basically based on the traditional Chinese culture although we can see many innovative change here, like the miniskirts or sun-tops.
Then next style arises only in this decade along with the popular TV series. Obviously, the trend I mention here is the Korean one. Chinese even coined a local word ‘Hanliu’ for this special fashion trend. We can use a key word to describe the Korean style: the Girl Next Door. How can we define the dressing of a girl lives next door? It always means that it’s comfortable, looking good but not so exaggerated as the Japanese style. Girls may carry the little elegant hand bag with them or wear the hairband with a bow on it. Instead of being sexy, girls in this style seem more accessible to others.
Last but not least, the western style. This trend has the longer history than the two we mentioned above, however, it’s not adopted by the majority of college girls in China. The major reason is that we Chinese girls have different builds from the western people. You can find that college girls who have preference for this style are mostly tall and thin like models. They wear super miniskirts to show their slim figures or huge coats to outstand their arrogance. Actually there is a minor trend that’s not easily discovered by most people, the campus trend. Students in college are no longer required to wear uniforms which makes them cherish the memory of that dressing.. That’s why campus trend appeared. It’s rooted in the western dressing style since they have the most beautiful uniforms for student in high schools.
China College dressing fashion is actually the combination of the three kinds of styles from different countries as I mentioned above. Next time if you have time, you could come to China and walking around in the Chinese Colleges, you will find it very different from yours.
