The start of a new year is a time for hope, new beginnings, and heritage. It’s also a time for embracing festive styles that nod to tradition while looking forward to the future.
When it comes to casual dress codes, call upon fashion that is equal part festive and cosy. For women dashing the streets in search of Lunar New Year supplies or catching up with friends, look stylish and stay warm in an oversized red jacket, and a glossy patent bucket hat from Prada. A crossbody bag from Loewe keeps your hands free, while lucky, gilded accents complete the look.
The same style motto transcends to the gents. Whether running errands or curling up on the sofa with family, now is the time for carefully considered colours. Pay ode to the moment with auspicious red and pink which represents happiness, passion, and luck, and consider a shade of the Water Tiger with a blue accent. For both men and women, Amiri’s Lunar New Year capsule collection offers the perfect off-duty tribute to the year’s zodiac animal.
On the eve of Lunar New Year, opt for a look that feels harmonious with a celebratory and lavish reunion dinner. For the ladies, red is always a classic choice, while a bag that shines or sparkles from Saint Laurent adds to the look. Finish with a pair of heels from Mach and Machto summon in both success and opulence.
For the dapper gent, don’t be afraid to dial up the drama when it comes to getting dressed. Along with tailored pieces in shades of prosperous pink and red, opt for lucky metallic accents, such as a necklace or bracelet from Emanuele Bicocchi, or fun cufflinks from Tatteossian. Your phone deserves to dress up too – house it in a sleek, understated crossbody from Mark Cross for the occasion.
