This is particularly obvious in Hanfu, because the style of Hanfu is more dignified and classical, so many decorations on Hanfu are traditional patterns, such as dragon patterns, phoenixes, peonies and so on.
Peony is a representative of luxury and dignity, both in ancient times and in modern times. Especially in the Tang Dynasty, peony existed as a national flower. Therefore, many Hanfu are now printed or embroidered with peony patterns.

People who can be compared with peony generally have a higher status and elegant temperament.

In ancient times, when the level of medical treatment was not high, many People in China pursue longevity, and some even do not hesitate to make alchemy and eat alchemy to achieve the goal of “immortality”. In the eyes of modern people, the cranes are more like “spiritual beasts”. They are the cranes ridden and raised by immortals in ancient Chinese myths and legends. The crane pattern represents the high and lofty aspirations.
3.Dragon and Phoenix Elements
The dragon and phoenix patterns have been symbols of imperial power since ancient times, and ordinary people cannot easily use them. Only rulers can embroider dragon or phoenix patterns on their clothes. Now that there is no class distinction, dragon patterns have entered the homes of ordinary people, and many Hanfu are now decorated with dragon patterns.
Because the dragon pattern itself is more domineering, it is more suitable for matching with some more stable and more atmospheric colors, such as black. The calm black and silver dragon embroidery look gorgeous and full of personality. Although this suit is a relatively fresh Hanfu made in Song Dynasty, the style of the whole suit is very handsome, and it belongs to both men and women.

Now that the feudal society is over, it is perfectly possible for everyone to choose the dragon and phoenix pattern when wearing Hanfu. As long as you like it, others will not say much.
If the dragon is a symbol of domineering, then the style of the phoenix will be more dignified and gorgeous. Although the dragon and the phoenix are both virtual animals, the ancients concretized them according to their own imagination. The phoenix after being concrete is a very atmospheric image, which is very gorgeous at first glance, especially the wings of the phoenix are particularly colorful.
Many Hanfu will use phoenix wings to express the phoenix. This design will give the clothes a looming feeling, which is more artistic than embroidering a whole phoenix on the clothes. When the phoenix and the dignified Ming-made Hanfu are matched together, it is even more atmospheric and full of aristocratic atmosphere. Wearing this suit is the head mother of a large family.
