Uygur Clothes

Costume of the Uygur ethnic minority features looseness, free style and sharp color contrast. In the past, the majority of Uygur women wore broad-sleeved one-piece dresses topped with a black waistcoat. Now, they mostly wear western-style short jackets and skirts.

Women like to wear accessories like earrings, bracelets and necklaces. In the past, girls arranged their hair into many small plaits; the longer the hair, the more beautiful. After marriage, they plaited their hair into two plaits, and decorated it with a crescent-shaped comb; some arranged the two plaits into a bun.

Uygur men usually wear a long gown with a tilted front and a waistband but no buttons.
