Now that we’re done with NYE celebrations, on to the next big event: Ringing in the Lunar New Year on January 22! If you’re following Chinese traditions or are feeling superstitious, here are a couple of vibrant and bold outfit suggestions that can definitely bring in luck this 2023, as well as positive feedback from your family and friends during reunions (or mahjong sessions). Our favorite Singapore-based clothing brand Love, Bonito recently released the first out of many weekly pieces featuring feminine styles and mother-daughter twinning sets for all occasions. These can be spotted on their website from December 26 to January 23:
VIBRANT PIECES FOR A VIBRANT YEAR
Featuring a range of cosy knits, camisoles and dresses, this collection captures the lightness of the new season with bold, vibrant colours, symbolic of a vibrant year ahead. The Paige Pleat Flare Skirt features a unique flare silhouette and includes functional side pockets to hold multiple red packets! For an all-day steamboat-friendly look, the full-length Chantal Elastic Off Shoulder Trapeze Dress emphasises comfort for endless enjoyment of New Year goodies. The modest Clover Lace Column Dress is a stunning piece for family visits with its embroidered guipure lace detailing and sleeveless design. Opt for a more casual look with Brynn Fit & Flare Linen Dress, which provides a flattering fit with its sweetheart neckline and ruched detail.
