1. Black cheongsam with dinosaur prints ($21.60)

Available in 3 colours—dusty pink, plum and navy—the En Ci Sleeved Cheongsam Dress by Topazette is simple and elegant. The lace overlay extends to the sleeves, making it perfect for those who prefer not to bare their arms.
If the minimalist aesthetic of geometric lines and block colours strikes your fancy, consider MGP’s Harmony Colourblock Cheongsam In Rose. The fit-and-flare silhouette is feminine and youthful, and the pockets add a utilitarian touch.
Get a two-in-one outfit with Neonmello’s Madebynm Mallory Two-Way Floral Embroidery Cape Dress in Rosewood. Also available in pink and navy blue, the dress comes with a detachable cape that reveals a sleeveless shift below. This is perfect if you have a romantic restaurant date after work, but lack the time to change up your entire look.
5. MGP Le Lourve Ruffle Cheongsam In Mustard ($42.50)
A bold solid colour can pack as much of a punch as a printed ensemble. Trendy elements like the asymmetric hemline, ruffles and puffed sleeves make this a staple garment, even for a weekend out with bae.
