For the next two weeks we will be exploring the Northern and Southern Dynasties. This week’s post will focus on clothing from the Sixteen Kingdoms and Northern Dynasties from Experiencing Dynastic Restoration 朝代復原體驗. Some of these states from this period had a diverse background which eventually underwent a period of sinicization.

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.
