This Chinese New Year, indulge in the pleasures of offline interaction with loved ones at home (or at a restaurant). Put on your best clothes because the festivities call for lots of photo-taking and creating video content for your Tiktok. Here, we take inspirations from some of our favourite style stars.
1. Business Casual
Leave it to Singapore-based style maven Yoyo Cao to effortlessly pull off a short suit comprising red leather blazer and shorts as well as a turtleneck. If a turtleneck is too constricting for your liking, why not swap it for a lace bustier to up the huat factor? Then, throw on your favourite pair of heels (preferably in shades of red or white) and the Dior Saddle bag in multicolour butterfly embroidery and you’re all set for the Chinese New Year festivities.
2. Do It With Puffy Sleeves
You really can’t go wrong with a dress that comes with oversized sleeves. To up your style game, pair it with gold knee-high boots and accessories like Jamie QQ here for maximum effect.

4. Do It With Accessories
If a full-on red outfit is not your vibe, then consider adding pops of the auspicious colour with accessories like how Mae Tan has done here.

5. Opt For The Skirt And Shirt Combo
