How Can I Switch Up the Chinese New Year Style Classics?
Bring good fortune, wealth and style to your festive season get-up.
1 Mix and match your prints
While not a revolutionary style idea, floral prints keep on giving long after the festive period so it’s good to invest in a few now. By mixing up your print styles, and clashing florals with stripes or spots, petal power can go way beyond your average pretty print. Take style inspo from this fashionista and introduce clashing via your accessories too.
Mix and match your florals.

2 Get creative with layering
Chinese New Year wouldn’t be the same without a splash of red, but consider layering hues instead of sticking with one tone. From burnt orange and deep burgundy to berry hues, a tone-on-tone outfit will give a fresh twist to a fashion classic.
Style tip: Florals don’t have to be girly. Roll the sleeves and pair with cropped jeans for an easy day.

3 Add shine
Metallic is set to be huge for S/S ’18, so finding gold pieces to suit will be easy. Layer your shiny metallic finds with more casual pieces like a plain tee or oversized knit.
