CNY 2019 Looks from Singapore Online Stores
CNY 2019 is around the corner, which means it’s time to temporarily ditch the Marie Kondo philosophy for the ‘more-is-more’ rhetoric. After all, the spring cleaning you’ve done has made space in your wardrobe for a few more outfits. Here are some CNY looks that will please even the harshest of critics (i.e your ah-ma).
1. For the mahjong queen
If you predict you’ll be playing more than a few rounds of mahjong this CNY, slip into something chic yet comfortable so you can mo pai with ease. We recommend Love, Bonito’s Pomeranc Mandarin Collar Crop Top in Vermillion ($39.90) and Livienne High Waist Sash Pants in Wisteria ($53.90).
2. For the girl who’s always in black
Chinese New Year is a yearly challenge for those of us who feel our best in black. There’s just no other hue that as accurately represents the darkness of our souls, amirite?
Fortunately, Pomelo has blessed us with the Midi Two Tone Floral Wrap Dress ($64). A modern take on the cheongsam, this pretty piece is floral enough to please our grandmothers, yet black enough so we still feel fashun.
3. For the girl who’s all about the ’gram
If you’re the type of girl who isn’t afraid to sprawl on the grass in your grandparents’ backyard just to get The Shot, this ensemble’s for you.
The fuschia tones of Pomelo’s Chinese Frog Knot Cami Jumpsuit ($45.99) ensure your outfit pops against a variety of backdrops, while Love, Bonito’s Alexa Circular Handle Bag in White ($16.90) is the most stylish ang pow carrier a girl can get.
I mean, if you didn’t take an OOTD during CNY, did you even CNY?
4. For the girl with tai tai dreams
No rich husband, no problem. Feel and look expensive in Love, Bonito’s Roxith Cape Sleeve Midi Dress in Vermillion ($49.90), a luxe number that looks best paired with minimalist accessories and a bright red lip.
