The Áo dài (pronounced Au-jaai in the south and Au-zaad in the north) is a traditional garment from Vietnam. Literally, Áo dài means 'long dress' or long shirt. The Áo dài consists of silk trousers, topped by a long dress with slits that covers the body from the neck to below the knee. Young girls and students must wear a white Áo dài. The girls who are a bit older but not married wear light pastels. The Áo dài of married women are usually brightly colored. The Áo dài fits tightly around the body, so that, even though the garment conceals everything, the body shapes are accentuated.
