5 FRESH AND MODERN CHINESE NEW YEAR OUTFITS

Gong Xi Fa Cai, New Clothes Na Lai!!! 😝

Hello guys! Chinese New Year is just around the corner. Have you shopped for your CNY clothes yet? πŸ™ˆ

Well, when it comes to CNY outfits, most of us will be like: Oh, I must only wear RED!! 

As for me, I think that CNY outfits aren't necessarily restricted to red (not in this era, at least), as there are many more interesting and creative ways to dress up for this festive season! Hence, I teamed up with Forever 21 to create this lookbook to feature my take on fresher, and a more modern approach of CNY outfits. Enjoy! πŸ’›

- LOOK 1: A POP OF TANGERINE - 
Tangerine is an excellent alternative to red. Not only is tangerine an auspicious colour for Chinese New Year, it also adds some zing and vitality to an outfit! I paired a striped tangerine top with a denim skirt, and threw on a bomber jacket to bring out an edgy, refreshing look. So if you are already bored of wearing red during CNY, start experimenting with tangerine! πŸ˜‰






- LOOK 2: FLORAL BLOSSOM - 
We all know there is no running away from floral prints when it comes to Chinese New Year. In Forever 21, I managed to find a beautiful floral-printed bomber jacket in Forever 21. Made of chiffon, it's really soft and lightweight, which I think is perfect for the humid weather during CNY. 

I attempted a fresh, bold and new look that I've never tried before - I threw on the jacket over a brick red top (yeah, red), a pair of really cool frayed-hem mom jeans on top of a pair of chained loafers. To accessorise, I strapped a choker around my neck and wore a belt for some extra oomph

I have never worn a pair of jeans like this, and I must say this: I'm totally digging it! With the shredded fringe detail, this pair of jeans is absolutely eye-catching - nothing short of a bold statement, I would say.







- LOOK 3: SPRING HAS SPRUNG - 
I toned down the colours from the previous outfit to this really soft, pastel-looking outfit which is more feminine and dainty. I put on a floral-embroidered sheer top and a pastel-blue skirt, and jumped into some really cute furry heels! For the bag, I chose a mini, camel-colour one as I think it goes pretty well with the entire look! 

Combining the pastel-toned palettes, the floral details on the blouse are extremely intricate. And the corduroy skirt in pastel blue - so freaking cute! This look is just oh-so-fine for those who want to look girly and sweet for a family reunion dinner or a family gathering. πŸ’˜

- LOOK 4: ROAD TRIPPIN' - 
Whether you are going on a road trip this CNY, or you are simply heading back to your good ol' hometown, this set of coordinate can be your best road-tripping / airport look as it is casually fashionable and extremely comfortable as well!

I wore a red corduroy cap, a high-necked brick red top which proudly read: "Born in the 1990's" along with a pair of high-waisted jeans. To bring the saturation of this outfit some chill, I put on a pastel-pink satin bomber jacket and a pair of comfortable white sneakers. Oh, and don't we all need a mini backpack for road trips? Here, I got myself a freaking adorable furry backpack (which I fell in love with at first sight), which can actually store quite a lot of your road trip essentials! Also, I think it will be such a great conversation starter when you are with your relatives (or yeah, awkwardness-deflector if you will). 😜

- LOOK 5: CLASSIC DENIM LOOK - 
Let's say you're not really feeling the red nor florals this CNY, well then I guess the classic denim look will be the pull-off you shouldn't avoid. The look itself is already timeless and classic, suitable for all occasions - it's surely a no-problem for CNY too! An oversized denim jacket, a white graphic top and a pair of pastel-pink button down skirt with a pair of basic black sneakers are all you need for a youthful, casual yet sweet-looking look. As for the accessories, simply put on a thin choker and you are ready to roll!

Geddit..? Roll? Money roll roll? 贒源滚滚? 🀣








Whether your poison is street, bold, feminine, or casual, I certainly hope that this lookbook gave you some inspiration on what to wear for CNY this year! All the garments above are from Forever 21 (yes, from head to toe)! 

Not forgetting to mention, Forever 21 is now having a Scratch & Win promotion in which you can walk away with amazing discounts, vouchers, even earphones when you spend minimum RM108 in-store! ✌

Happy shopping, and don't forget to leave me a comment and let me know which look is your favourite!!! πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›
