Call off the search: Your CNY fashion shortlist has arrived. And don’t worry, there’s no red in sight.
CNY is the time for reunion dinners, non-stop snacking and dressing up to the nines. If you’ve maxed out on the scarlet outfits or fancy taking a non-red approach to festive dressing, you’ve come to the right place. This year, we’re falling in love with timeless neutrals, Peranakan designs, verdant prints and other stylish creations. Here are the gorgeous CNY outfits for 2020 we’ve shortlisted…
Botanical energy with Lily & Lou
If you wanna lean into floral vibes for spring, look no further than Lily and Lou’s newest drops fashioned out of eco-friendly fabrics. Go big on botanicals with the easy yet statement-making Sasha dress, or make a petal-infused entrance with the Selena jumpsuit (pictured top). Psst: The brand also makes personalised wear with customisable pieces.
Lily & Lou, available online and at stockists Zalora and The Attaby Collective.
Local food lovin’ with Reckless Ericka
CNY visitings might be the best chance to evaluate your relatives’ food preferences, and Reckless Erica is here to help. Don a stylish piece from the chili crab collection on day one and another from the durian collection on day two, then compare the number of compliments you receive and tally the scores to find out where your family’s loyalties lie. (We’re only half-joking.)
Reckless Ericka, available online and at stockists including Design Orchard and Society A.
Easy breezy with H&M Conscious
There’s something particularly fetching about found-in-nature prints stamped on dainty silhouettes, and H&M’s zebra print bandeau dress shows exactly what we mean. Giving prints a swerve? Feast your eyes on the short halter neck dress that’s giving us throwback noughties vibes.
H&M Conscious, available online and in stores, locations include Suntec City, NEX and Kallang Wave Mall.
Peranakan threads with Ans.ein
Obsessed with the gorgeous patterns of Peranakan tiles? It’s time to wear your love for them on your sleeve and beyond. For this endeavour, we’ve got our eyes on Ans.ein’s Peranakan Blu jumpsuit in a porcelain blue design. Swoon.
Ans.ein, available online and in stores, locations include Takashimaya, Tangs Vivocity and The Artground at Goodman Arts Centre.
Summer dreams with Pomelo Purpose
Tropical weather apparel gets an eco-friendly upgrade with the Pomelo Purpose line. Neutral obsessives, snag the v-neck knit tank and flared ruffle pants for a chic monochromatic combo. If you’re into statement sleeves and flowers, we’d say the floral puffed sleeved dress could be right up your alley.
