This week, we look at more Eastern Han Dynasty hanfu through pictures from Sinan Ge Hanfu‘s (Compass Pavilion Hanfu) 司南閣漢服 weibo.
Just going to make a note here that sometimes, clothing styles persist in different eras and groups go on a limb and do things like be creative or combine elements from different eras. Therefore, every now and again, some clothes get kind of hard to classify into a time period and we are left to rely on factors like fabric choice, style of the sleeves, make-up, adornments, etc. to guesstimate a time period. That being said, not everything we assign may be completely correct despite how much we try. Hanfu from this weibo are in the category that I would say are a bit more “creative” and tend to be a bit hard to classify so I am putting them in the period they would probably fit most closely in although some variance and arguments are probably possible for other periods.
More pictures below the cut.
Hanfu groups seem to work together so I apologize ahead of time in case there are any repeats. Also, please understand that sorting Hanfu by era can be hard due to similar styles carrying over into different eras, lack of historical evidence or knowledge, and various other factors.
The following are some links that may help you get some background information. Please let us know in the comment section if there are any other sites you may be able to recommend for more pictures.

The shape and form of the hanfu above is so elegant and aesthetic although the fabric is simple and plain.
I totally agree with you! I just scrolled and couldn’t stop saying so pretty….I just love how it flows.
