Category 1: Dress Code: Red
H&M: Take inspiration from the colour of Chinese New Year and put on a red party dress. This frock star is sweet and sassy with a ruffled mandarin collar, puffed sleeves and full skirt.
Larua: Not one for wearing dresses? You can look just as dressed up – and even stand out in a crowd – wearing a sophisticated red jumpsuit. Details to seek out: a notice-me neckline, wide legs and inverted pleats.
Melanie Lyne: A full-length dress is the perfect choice for more formal Lunar New Year plans. Au currant details to look for: open shoulders or single shoulder designs revealing just enough skin to be noticed – and in scarlet red, of course!
Category 2: First Impressions
Laura: Take a break from the little black dress to shine in a ruby red dazzler. This faux-wrap dress is comfy in jersey and figure flattering with strategically placed gathers cinched at the waist with a sparkly rhinestone clip.
H&M: Such an auspicious occasion calls for indulging with a manicure. Take a break from your usual neutral tone of nail polish to paint the town and your nails.
Category 3: Golden Opportunities
RW&Co.: Take advantage of this special opportunity to get all dressed up. Effortless and elegant, dress to the nines and look a perfect ten in this sparkly gold sequin cocktail dress.
ALDO: A nude shoe is an easy way to create the illusion of appearing taller. So rise to the occasion with this gorgeous Wicalindra block heel in go-with-everything rose-gold glitter.
Category 4: Stellar Style
Ardene:Take inspiration from the tradition of gifting with a red envelope (hong bao) to treat yourself to a classic envelope clutch – in Chinese red, of course. Perfect for adding an eye-catching pop of colour to any outfit.
Category 5: Mane Attraction
H&M: Be noticed from all angles of the room, drawing attention to your hairband in metal with pearlescent beads.
Category 6: Finishing Touches
Swarovski: It’s not a proper celebration without taking Tik Tok and Insta-worthy photos. While doing so, all eyes will be on your cell phone cover – so bling it up with this cheeky New Love smartphone case. The mirror finish is handy for lipstick touch-ups, too!
Category 7: Made For Men
RW&Co.: To welcome the new year, a new suit is definitely in order. As black is a colour to be avoided when celebrating Lunar New Year, opt for a navy, charcoal or a light grey.
ALDO: Guys, put away your black leather boots and step out in blue suede shoes, dressed up with slim-leg charcoal trousers or kept casual with dark denim. The bonus? They’re easy to slip on and off when visiting someone’s home.
Category 8: Men of Leisure
H&M: Keeping things casual or looking for a guy gift? Celebrate the Year of the Rat with a nod to the most famous rodent of all, Mickey Mouse, on this special Disney sweatshirt.
RW&Co.: Ruffle a few fashionable feathers donning this slim fit blazer, a modern interpretation to the dinner jacket. The gold embroidered feathers are striking against the dark red.
Soft Moc: Whether hosting dinner at home or after a long night out, let him slip into a comfy pair of suede and leather UGG Ascot China Tea fashion moccasins, made with a warm sheepskin lining.
Category 9: Gifts For Girls
H&M: Your little princess will be “red-y” for family celebrations dolled up in this picture-perfect brocade dress – made for twirling in with two layers of tulle.
Swarovski: A charming keepsake for Lunar New Year, this Limited Edition 2020 Anniversary Mouse celebrates 125 years of Swarovski sparkle with the brands own iconic rodent, called the “UrMouse”.
Category 10: Lunar Must-Haves
