HVVGIRL CNY Outfit Ideas
The Lunar New Year could be considered the biggest occasion for most Singaporean ladies.
For those who might be mulling (or stressing) over what to wear - fret not!
We've got you covered with a mixture of styles and some sneaks from our upcoming collection.
Our outfit suggestions are grouped according to various settings usually encountered during the festive season:
At the office
If you are looking to add a bit of festive flair to your outfits but don't feel ready for a full-on oriental look, lace/eyelet dresses might do the trick.
To get into the Spring and Lunar New Year mood, sweet pastels or light and neutral hues will complement lace/eyelet fabrics for a feminine look.
For those who eschew such a look, our upcoming pantsuit provides a minimalist, subdued and professional alternative.
In addition to the above suggestions, an extra blazer or cardigan can help to make your overall look appear more formal.
Some ladies who host guests/relatives in their home might find themselves in a fashion dilemma during CNY.
We understand that you might want to feel comfortable and appear presentable - but not overdressed - at the same time.
The above outfits feature shorter hemlines (to provide some respite from the heat) and easy-to-match quality separates with oriental details.
At someone else's home
We'd advise reaching for a comfortably chic outfit to see you through your multiple rounds of visiting during the Lunar New Year.
Consider something that can make a stylish statement (for that 'wow'/'glamourous'/festive feeling)
and comfortably accommodate your figure as you enjoy the new year goodies from day to night.
A dress with a roomy silhouette, eye-catching embellishments or captivating prints will help to fulfil the above nicely.
When it's time to call on your dearest girlfriends, fashion-forward and fun pieces will fit the light-hearted occasion perfectly (and look great in those group shots).
You could try to incorporate something different - like a fringe skirt, an asymmetrical hemline or some romantic ruffles - to spice up your OOTD too.
For the fancy and dressy occasions (at restaurants, corporate functions and the like), we'd recommend putting your best foot forward.
Try longer hemlines (i.e. midi/maxi lengths) with decadent details (e.g. embroidery) and luxurious fabrics for a presentable and polished look.
