Regardless of how and where they appear when it comes to clothing, we can all agree that dragons are pretty amazing. And who wears dragon-themed clothing? The cool kids. So if you want to be one of them but you’re on the fence about bagging your own Chinese dragon t-shirt, keep reading and let’s see if we can change your mind.

Let’s begin with a bit of a lesson in Chinese culture and about the significance of the Chinese dragon. Dragons appear very strongly through folklore and festivals, artwork, astrology and more in Chinese culture. 

Dragons are associated with power, strength and auspiciousness. Needless to say, channelling what dragons represent into their personal style is something many enjoy, and something you can enjoy too - as long as you remember to do so in a respectful way! 

How to style a Chinese dragon t-shirt

Dragon motifs are very eye-catching - from the colours used to the intricate outline of the dragon design, there is a lot to take in. So when it comes to a good Chinese dragon t-shirt, it’s important to know how to style it so it feels cohesive with the rest of your outfit. 

One way to tackle styling a Chinese dragon t-shirt is by making sure other elements of your outfit also sport some sort of dragon motif. The best way to achieve a matching look is by looking into a t-shirt/sweater that may also have matching jogging bottoms. A small but pertinent detail such as matching dragon motifs makes a look feel coordinated.

Don’t forget to utilise your accessories! It might be a bit trickier to find hats, belts or shoes that have the same exact dragon motif, but sometimes it doesn’t even need to be that complicated. Think about the colours that are present in the motif, is it red? Gold? Why not find accessories that match? Or if you want to go the extra mile, perhaps accessories that are in complementary colours. 

If you don’t want to go overboard with dragons in your outfit, then focus on making your Chinese dragon t-shirt the star of the show. Grab yourself a casual dark pair of jeans and a blazer to match and you’ve got yourself a solid base that will work well with any dragon-related t-shirt you decide on.
