With the Lunar New Year around the corner, there’s no better time than now to start shopping for your CNY clothing. As with most people, we are of the opinion that you should kick off your festive period with a bright red colour, and that is why we have compiled a gallery of stylish red pieces for you to select from, ranging from cotton dresses that help you stay cool to the cross-body bag every angpow-giving woman needs to carry.

  1. Blouse, RM169, from Ms. Read.

With romantic layerings that pull double-duty in keeping you stylish while hiding a potential food-induced belly, you’ll breeze through the Lunar New Year in this blouse.

2) chrusty ng rm206.70- (Small)

2. Stack mules,  RM206.70, from Christy Ng.


Style your cheongsam with a slick of flashy satin in the form of a pair of high heels. The block heel also means that you can stand comfortable without having tho contend with aching feet.

3) guess-071717_Pr-Flats1892 (Small)

3. Dress, from Guess.

The CNY period is usually known for its humid weather, so keep cool in a sleeveless dress complete with lace that help to allow more breathability.

4) hmprod-1 (Small)

4. Skirt, from H&M.

Put on your best front as you visit your relatives by pairing a simple t-shirt with a dressy lace skirt.

1) TOPSHOP (11) (Small)

5. Top, from Topshop.

With its dainty polka-dots and its flounced hemline, this top will pair with anything effortlessly. So whether you’re in the mood for jeans or you want to dress up a bit more with a midi-skirt, this top will match practically everything.

6) Furla Metropolis Chinese New Year 2018 (Small)


6. Metropolis Chinese New Year bag, from Furla.

You’ll need to keep your essentials within reach at all times, and not to mention the mandarin oranges and the angpows kept in stylish bag. Well, look no further than the limited edition Metropolis cross-body bag from Furla. Best of all, it comes in a festive shade of lucky red  with a zodiac sign of the dog, an animal which is a symbol of loyalty and gentleness and a stylized digital motif of the rose, sign’s auspicious flower, so if you need to send a hint to your husband on what he should be getting you for Valentine’s Day, this is pretty much it.

7) zalora rm369- (Small)

7. Wrap dress, from Zalora.

A wrap dress is perhaps the smartest thing to wear this season. What with all the feasting and the CNY snacks, you can count on this wrap dress to sneakily hide away your little paunch and keep you cool throughout your two days of visitations.

8) mydp- rm289 (Small)

8. Jumpsuit, RM289, from Dorothy Perkins.

Can’t decide what to wear? Throw on a red jumpsuit and call it a day! With its sleeves and longer hemline, it remains cool enough to be worn without raising your grandmother’s eyebrow.

9) zara velvet rm269 (Small)

9. Embellished velvet slip-on shoes, RM269, from Zara.

All these red can be quite scary for women who don’t usually wear a lot of colour. So rather than deck yourself out in a colour you are uncomfortable with, start off slow and small with a pair of shoes in a deeper shade of red.

10)) poplook rm59-adelpha-drawstring-pants-cranberry

10. Trousers, RM59, from Poplook.

The elastic waistband on these trousers are a dream for every foodie, because you can eat all you want and you won’t have to worry about not fitting into your trousers.

11) esprot-018EO1E007-001 (Small)

11. Floral dress, RM449.90, from Esprit.

A floral dress will afford you plenty of style mileage, because even once the 15 days of the Lunar New Year has passed, you can still throw on this dress and head to the office. All you need to do is ground it with a black waist belt and some neutral-coloured accessories to wear it beyond the festive period.


10) mango-21030617 (Small)

12. Pants, RM229, from MANGO.

Wide-leg pants are a favourite of ours because they give us the illusion of longer legs and we don’t feel so restricted in our movements as compared to a pair of skin-tight jeans. These tomato-red trousers are fantastic, because you can keep the rest of your outfit pared back and let your pants do all the impressing.
