Don’t be a *boar*, ring in the new year with a piglet on your sleeve

The countdown to Chinese New Year 2019 begins! As we bid farewell to the Year of the Dog, we welcome the prosperous pig into the calendar. Gentle, playful and cute as a button, pop culture has made a long list of famous little piggies. From the talking farm piglet Babe, the ever-fashionable Miss Piggy from The Muppets to the timeless tale of the Three Little Pigs from our childhood days, one can't deny that the animal is beloved and a favourite.

Inject humour and fun into your CNY #OOTD with our edit of pig-themed fashion picks. Dsquared2 celebrates the animal with a hand-drawn design on a long-sleeved cotton fleece hoodie in black with red elements for good measure. For a luxurious flair, look to Salvatore Ferragamo's pure silk scarf adorned with beautiful Chinoiserie print, with a large gold pig in the centre symbolising good fortune. You may recognise the cartoon characters printed on Gucci's GG Supreme portfolio and Moschino's leather embroidered phonecase. Childhood memories to lighten the mood! Looking for a more subtle approach? Miu Miu's gold charm bracelet is a pretty sight, complete with a pink bow and sparkle.
