🧧 Here's 5 - Let's get started on CNY outfits! 🧧
Once again, Chinese New Year is just round the corner!! This might be the one occasion that we are all so excited about the most, out of all the occasions in the entire year! It is the time where family and friends gather and have fun! It is a joyous period where some collect angpows (red packets 🧧), and a not-so-joyous period for those who give them out! 😆 It is a period where gambling till wee hours becomes a tad more legitimate and where we EAT, EAT, and EAT!
Can we not forget that it is also a period where most people do fashion show on the streets? It is amazing to see how people dress up on Chinese New Year (CNY) to do their visitings! People-watch is often one of my favourite things to do on the first two days of CNY since it is believed that wearing new clothes symbolizes a new start and fresh hopes for the New Year! 🧨
Well, let us get started on the outfits perfect for Chinese New Year!
HUANZHU FLORAL KEYHOLE A-LINE CHEONGSAM
The one piece that caught our eye at first sight - Huanzhu. The beautiful floral prints on the minty-jade canvas mimic hand-painted chinoiserie art pieces and exudes a classy vibe of sophistication. Featuring a gentle, A-line silhouette and a mandarin collar with keyhole button, this graceful number is sure to make heads turn this Chinese New Year!

SPRING SONATA EMBROIDERY COLOURBLOCK MIDI DRESS
Incorporating a modern spin into an otherwise traditional cheongsam, Spring Sonata comes with a flattering fit-n-flare silhouette and contemporary colourblock detail. Its intricate floral embroidery patterns that line across the bodice adds to the feelings of the Lunar period, making it even more auspicious and appropriate for the festivities!

LUNAR BLESSINGS FLORAL EMBROIDERY PIPING SKATER CHEONGSAM
This classic mandarin collar with decorative buttoned detailing, when included in a timeless skater dress, makes for a perfect Chinese New Year wardrobe update, and is most ideal for the modern lady. Lunar Blessings features contrasting piping details and elaborate floral embroidery patterns, thereby providing an ornamental touch. Further, the vibrant wine red hue is definitely a popular colour believed to bring luck to the wearer!
SPRING BLOOM EMBROIDERY TEXTURED CHEONGSAM
After many renditions, this one might be our best Spring Bloom design yet! The quintessential cheongsam silhouette that features an exceedingly good fit, and one that flaunts the womanly figure effortlessly. The beautifully embroidered floral patterns that provide a simple, yet decorative touch to the overall look, and one that extends out as a raw-edged embroidery design, making it undoubtedly voguish. We also love the hint of see-through mesh at the neckline offering a contrast to the otherwise opaque, brocade material.

BLISS FLORAL EMBROIDERY MIDI TRAPEZE DRESS
Unquestionably, this design has got to be the most non-CNY style of all the designs featured in this post! Without the ornamental mandarin collars with decorative buttons, and the more modest and fitted silhouette, Bliss Floral comes in a slight v-neckline and a loose-fit trapeze form that leaves you twirling like Odette in Swan Lake. Nonetheless, the light-pink floral embroidery patterns surely lends a festive touch to the casual number.
