Happy Chinese New Year to all of you.

I have been so busy over the last week with preparations for the New Year. Getting our favourite traditional new year goodies, buying cases of tangerines and of course putting a few outfit inspirations to share with you on how to dress for the Lunar New Year.

Keeping in mind that bright colours are favored, particularly red, yellow and metallics, this year I decided to put together an inspirational outfit video to share with you on how to mix and match items you may already have in your wardrobe to create a whole new look for the Chinese New Year. As always, keeping fashion sustainable, try and create new looks with items you would already have rather than dashing out to purchase a whole new wardrobe for this occasion. I wanted to style these gorgeous vintage clutches with my new year outfits and therefore had put together 3 outfit inspirations trending each clutch bag, of which it can be paired with both modern as well as a traditional Chinese cheongsam. Whichever tinkles your fancy. 

I love this purple based floral print cheongsam that ends slightly below the knee for that more conservative and elegant feel to this traditional style of dress. A modern take on a traditional outfit, this sleeveless number is non-crease and can easily be worn both during this festive period ( 15 days to be exact for the Lunar New Year celebrations) or even after for a dinner. Of course taking it up a notch, I decided to go bolder with this pretty Rainbow Candy metallic heels by The Tui Collection. The heel height is just perfect for the many house visits one needs to do over the New Year period but also detachable pretty bow at the back, elevates this traditional dress to a modern item. Since we are in the bold is more pairings, I went all out with the pairing of this vintage kimono fabric clutch with also a bow detail, therefore tying the whole look together with the bright colours of fuchsia pink and purple.

For those of you not really into Chinese traditional outfits yet either because you live in Asia or would likely be invited to an asian friends' home for celebrations, here are some inspirations of modern outfits you can work with for this festive period. Again as I mentioned, these looks can also take you outside of the Chinese New Year festivities. Let me know which is your favourite then.




Here's wishing all of you a blessed, prosperous and most importantly healthy Year of the Rat. 

Love,
Simone xoxo
