  “旗袍”这种这么有中国特色的服饰,雅思口语里不聊太可惜了。不过大家一定要注意,答题不要钻牛角尖,不用非得追溯旗袍到底什么时候发明的,也不用非得说源自清朝的旗人服饰,然后还得费尽口舌解释什么是“旗人”…… 关键是解释完了考官理解的估计只是“清朝的管事儿的人”……

  说说它的特点,举几个例子说明谁比较喜欢穿,在什么场合穿,就OK了!

  I’d like to talk about Qipao, which is a traditional Chinese gown for ladies. It was created about 100 years ago, and was first made fashionable by socialites and upper class women as stylish party dress.

  This kind of dress is full of Chinese flavor, on some international occasions, it’s like a symbol of China. And it’s always made of silk, which is also a typical Chinese fabric. It is the kind of material that makes a piece of clothes look more gorgeous and chic, and of course, of higher quality. And the patterns on the dress tend to be flowers and birds, which represent vigor and youth.

  This kind of dress is tight-fitting and brings out the attractive figure of women, you know, makes them look more sexy and elegant. That’s why we can always see people wear them in formal occasions, like ceremonies or important meetings.

  For example, every time our First Lady went to visit national leaders in foreign countries, she would always take several pieces with her. And Song Meiling, who used to be the first lady of Republic of China, never showed up in public without wearing Qipao.

  Not only in China, now countless foreigners have also become big fans of it. I mean, it’s not uncommon to see actors wearing this kind of dress in foreign movies.

  Oh, I almost forgot, now we have upgraded Qipao a little bit. The modernized style is more functional and better suits our taste. For example, sometimes we make the hemline shorter and a lot wider, so that ladies are more comfortable when they walk in it.
