Here’s the first of my Lunar New Year outfit inspirations. Colours like red are safe, striking and definitely fitting for this occasion. Red stands for prosperity, good luck, happiness, wealth and all the good things. In fact, it is a really auspicious colour for most Chinese people.
I thought a beautifully tailored cheong sam, in the most classic french lace, would be really feminine, elegant and glamourous. I decided to add to the look with a cute little statement fan clutch from Kate Spade, and a pair of pointed toe lace detailed heels from Jessica Simpson, topped off with a pair of earrings from Dannjio.
If your family and relatives like to go the traditional route, do not be afraid to experiment. Just a tip though, a good fit is really important for cheong sam’s. Get a piece that accentuates your assets and hide your flaws.
