Chinese New Year
Chinese New Year is upon us, just about a week or so away. On the 16th of February, about a million of Chinese Australians will celebrate the occasion with their families and friends. Some will travel overseas to reunite with family members long not seen, some may celebrate the Spring Festival by visiting cultural events in the major cities such as Sydney and Melbourne. Most will celebrate by a gathering for a festive, traditional dinner. A perfect opportunity to add some chinese new year dresses and accessories to your wardrobe!
Chinese new year dresses: Red dresses
Red is one of the luckiest colors in Chinese culture, so we know. One of the most gorgeous red dresses around is this tiered ruffled chiffon See by Chloé dress. Match it with these red Loeffler Randall ruffled suede mules for extra long legs. Accessorise with these stylish Isabel Marant bead-embellished tassel-drop earrings and Versace medusa belt. Finish off the look with a red Prada bag.
Chinese new year dresses: Gold dresses
Another very lucky colour indeed, is gold. There are plenty of gold dresses to be found, but I would opt for this Raey V-neck silk-satin midi slip dress for a warm February evening. But if the temperature decides to fall all of a sudden, the red vintage Chinese-style jacket will keep you warm enough. Continue with the Jimmy Choo lancer glitter pumps and the Dior leather card wallet. Finally, treat yourself to a golden gift a la Le Gramme brushed bracelet.
Chinese new year dresses: Green dresses
Lastly, green dresses could also bring you some luck in the new year. Have a look at the ASOS long sleeve ruffle wrap maxi tea dress, which is not too thick or too thin. I would advise the Tabitha Simmons barbi suede block heel slide sandals, a perfect shade of grey that compliments the green dress. Add the golden Pippa Small diamond necklace and the Miu Miu leather wallet for an extra touch of luck.
There is an incredible amount of possibilities. You could choose for one of the red dresses for the most luck, one of the gold dresses for luck and light or one of the green dresses for luck and growth. Or, you could combine all three colours in one outfit and secure yourself of the most luck, light and growth! Whichever option you choose,
Happy Chinese New Year!
