As Chinese New Year is approaching, we bet that you have already applied your leaves and scheduling your itinerary. But one thing for sure is that most of you are probably also trying to plan out what to wear during those numerous upcoming house visits, parties and for those who are lucky, that CNY dinner date. If you are overwhelmed with choices from your latest shopping spree picks, fret not as here are some looks that will help you in deciding what outfits to flaunt to every Chinese New Year occasion.
1. For the family reunion
For that annual formal family reunion dinner where your grandparents are present, of course you will want to keep it a little bit traditional. Opt for the classic cheongsam collar dress and still in touch with your personal style. And yes, you don’t have to wear the red classic cheongsam dress as there are plenty patterns and two piece sets you can choose from depending on your fashion preference.
2. A Day-to-Night Look
For those who prefer to have an outfit which works from day-to-night because you have a lot of things lined up throughout the entire day, this look is perfect. Simply match a skirt and a blouse to rock during the night and layering up during the day with a oriental print cardigan on top for that festivity mood.
3. CNY Party Night Out
It is the New Year’s after all, so no harm in donning a sparkly or metallic designed outfit on for that party night out with your friends. You can always infuse in those oriental prints in your ensemble too. Party the night away looking modern yet still in that festive mood.
4. Special CNY Dinner Date
For those couples out there, why not take advantage of this long holiday as the opportunity to go out on a romantic date. Whether you decide to go to a fancy restaurant or a casual type of date, play with the pantone colours of the year to embrace the festivities. Take the chance to talk your new year plans and future dreams with your partner while looking fabulous on the date.
5. For Openhouse Visits
We know that we all have a lot of openhouse visits lined up and this means that you will be eating A LOT. So, for those who might be overeating the delicious CNY meals provided at every house, it is recommended to wear something loose for example, a shift dress. Choose a pattern which reflects the Chinese New Year mood and eat to your heart’s content. You will never have to worry about having a bloating tummy, plus, still look amazing throughout the day.
