Chinese New Year is always exciting because it’s the only time of the year when it’s mandatory to buy new clothes! Haha. There will be New Year SALES or Special CNY collections both online and offline vying for your attention. Have you at least started to browse around yet? I sure have! Speaking of online shopping, I found some lovely and affordable outfits at Zalora.sg that make you look gorgeous without breaking the bank.
I’ve picked out several outfits for that I would totally love to have from the Eve of CNY to the third day of CNY, and also put together OOTD collages!
Eve of CNY: Sweet Reunion
Unlike others, my family doesn’t have reunion dinner on our own. I also don’t go to my grandparents’ cuz they’re residing in Canada. Instead, we head to my uncle’s place (mother’s cousin), where a bunch of my cousins, uncles and aunties will be present. For some others who are heading out to restaurants to have reunion dinners, I think something simple and casual will just be fantastic. I’ve chosen a floral shirt dress, with a really nice pink sling bag and rose gold sandals.
Fit & Flare Shirt Dress 29.90 SGD
First Day of CNY: The Mandarin Twist
It’s the New Year!! Wear the best piece of dress/clothing you have!! Hahaha. First day of new year usually constitutes visiting relatives’ houses to ‘bai nian’ (offer new year wishes). I was really drawn to this red hot fit-and-flare dress with a mandarin collar. It’s a twist from the usual tight-fitting cheongsam, but elegant nonetheless. I’d match the dress with black T-bar wedges and a clutch bag.
Second Day of CNY: Prosper with Polka
More visiting to do on the second day of new year! Appear in this shoulder-baring mandarin collared polka dress! I love the delicate yet playful vibe this dress gives off. The deep blue is luxuriant, and may your gambling winnings be as plentiful as the polka dots on your dress. Hahah! I would pair this dress with minimalistic accessories.
Polka Dot Cheongsam $59.90
Third Day of CNY: Laced With Joy
Third day is usually more relaxed as most people has started work already and visiting is done in the evenings. I would move away from dresses, instead opting for a more casual outfit like a laced top and floral paper-bag bottom, with matching accessories!
Lace Yoke Fitted Top $24.90
