Although today there is no obvious difference in the contemporary costumes of Zhuang ethnic minority and Han people, the traditional Zhuang costume, worn on special occasions, is unique in style. Zhuang women wear collarless, embroidered and trimmed jackets buttoned to the left together with baggy trousers, embroidered belts and shoes, and pleated skirts. They love to embroider patterns of flowers, figures, birds and beasts, etc., on their shoes, hats and bellybands.

Zhuang women are good at weaving and embroidery. The specialties of the Zhuang ethnic minority are Zhuang Cloth and Zhuang Brocade, which are famous for the elaborate designs and colorful styles. The wax printing of the Zhuan people also enjoys wide acclaim.
