Hanfu clothing, being the representative for the Chinese style, is integrating traditional designs into modernized womenswear, which forms a new fashion direction. For denim products, designers apply I-shaped frog buttons, fancy frog buttons, slant front opening, stand-up collars, buttoned slits, and tied-up plackets to reflect the Chinese accents and embrace the understated, traditional culture.
