Top 5 Trends for CNY 2017

Top 5 Trends for CNY 2017

By: Yi Jun

We can’t be the only ones that love the idea of eating a lot of CNY cookies, getting ‘angpaus’ and dressing up all week long? (Okay, 2 days for you working folks) Whether it’s just a short trip to your hometown or a plane ticket across the world, choosing your brand new outfit for the first day is no easy feat. We’d love to help, so get to know these 5 trends for Chinese New Year 2017!

Trend 1: Reds

Trend 1: Reds

Okay fine, it’s not really a trend, but it is a lucky colour to wear for the upcoming festivities! If you’re up for that whole traditional look, red cheongsams are classic choices. If you’re just not a fan of this colour palette but still want to look CNY-ish, try other bright colours like oranges or yellows. You don’t have to don the colour from head-to-toe, but a splash here or there will suffice. If you’re still not a fan, read the next trend!

Trend 2: Florals

Trend 2:Florals

Now, florals are not just there because it’s pretty. For those that don’t know, flowers represents new growth for the new year, which is why some of the houses you visit may have vases full of flowers everywhere. Embrace this by wearing an off-the-shoulder floral dress or a floral top with a basic skort. Not a fan of prints? It can be in small doses like a floral-printed bag or accessories.

Trend 3: Lace

Trend 3:Lace

We’re not quite sure if this relates to CNY at all, but it sure does look pretty! We’re guessing because lace gives off a very elegant look, and can transform a plain dress into something you wear for special occasions. The choices are endless! For reunion dinners, a dress with lace sleeves would look great. For CNY annual dinners, lace co-ords with some sheer will turn heads. Whichever you go for, just make sure it represents you.

Trend 4: Accessories

Trend 4:Accessories

Accessories can make or break your whole look, and they’re just as important as your clothes! May it be bags, shoes or jewellery, add one or two in to complement your outfit. If you’re wearing a plain dress, wear a necklace with some ruby earrings. If your outfit is already a statement piece on its own, a simple clutch and studded earrings will seal the deal. Since you’re probably going to be doing a lot of walking, keep a pair of flats in your car if you’re wearing heels. Trust us.

Trend 5: Modern Cheongsams

Trend 4:Modern Cheongsams

This is our favourite trend so far! We love the idea of keeping the old, but also ushering in the new. Incorporating the classiness of traditional cheongsams, modern ones have more colour choices, a range of different cuttings and styles. Modern cheongsams are perfect for any CNY-related activities, may it be reunion dinners or visiting relatives. Invest in a good one!
