22 Street style inspos to celebrate Chinese New Year in style
Paint the town red
Chinese New Year is around the corner; if you've always been the one to skip past the racks of red for easier-to-match options (read: navy blue and white), this is the perfect time to give the bold colour a shot. Whether you'd like to dip your toes in the trend with just a hint of red (lipsticks don't count), or take the plunge by rocking the same tone head to toe, here are some style tips for an on-point ensemble to welcome the Year of the Dog—good fortune and joy, guaranteed.
1) For a less blaring finish, try donning it in the form of a printed piece à la look 4 and 8. Accessorise in matching colour for added interest.
2) Red-on-red 101: Incorporate different tones into the mix. Look 7 and 18 opted to match with a slightly darker tone and pink respectively.
3) If bright red is not your thing, a merlot velvet piece (as seen on look 11) may be the best way to start.
4) And lastly, you can always count on the little details such as a pair of sunglasses or a bandanna scarf to serve as a perk-me-up.
