Lunar New Year Style
The Lunar New Year festivities are knocking at our doors once again and while we’re definitely looking forward to the goodies and red packets, there’s only one thing that gets us even more excited – the #OOTDs.
Auspicious colours are always ideal when it comes to Lunar New Year dressing, which is why we’ve handpicked a selection of bags, shoes and accessories in three of the “huat-est” hues to curate your outfits from. Fret not, there’s longevity in these pieces too, so you can tote them to the office and beyond once the celebrations are over.
But wait, that’s not all. We’ve also included first-hand tips on how to rock these three shades from our very own in-house stylist. Read on for all the top fashion titbits.
Despite its uplifting tone, yellow isn’t always top of mind when you think of auspicious colours. But there’s no reason it can’t be the shade for you this year. Take our canary-yellow mock-croc top handle bag for example – in a sprightly shade and a luxurious print, it’s also perfectly sized to store your red packets. After a little more brilliance? Move up the colour spectrum to shiny gold, equally bright, but with some gilded glamour to up your festive game.
Our stylist says… “Opting for a sunny colour usually shows off your cheerful disposition. If you’re feeling adventurous, go tonal by styling a head-to-toe look in various shades of yellow and gold.”
Perhaps as prosperous as the fruit itself, shades of orange will definitely add effervescence to everything you choose to wear this festive period. If you’re looking to add a little zest to your Lunar New Year outfits, keep these vivacious orange buckle mules in mind. Bonus points for the walkable kitten heels that make it perfect and practical for house-hopping.
Our stylist says… “Love orange? Chances are you’re an energetic soul. Contrary to what many think, orange isn’t actually as loud or blinding as it seems – especially when you team it with complementary colours such as purple and blue.”
And finally, what is Lunar New Year without the ubiquitous red. Even if you think it’s a shade that’s overdone during this time of year (or a bit tacky), a little scarlet touch in a pretty design can definitely elevate your look, and maybe even your luck. Reach for our luscious red strappy sandals as a vibrant addition to your festive look.
Our stylist says… “The original bold, bright and statement-making colour, red reveals your confident side. So, let it stand out by wearing it with neutral tones.”
