Who knew red and silver would make such a beautiful combination? If you want a no-frills look during Chinese New Year, a red maxi dress is the way to go. But instead of pairing it with gold tones, opt for silver to give it a little bit of a high-fashion touch.

If you’re in the mood for something different, go for a darker shade of red, and make sure the material is made of velvet. Add a ton of black accessories. The result? A cool girl-approved OOTD.


Boho chic

Got a pair of flared red pants? Then now is the time to whip them out. Wear them with a chic laced-up shirt and nude heels to ensure the colour of your pants is the centre of attention. And to complete your bohemian transformation, braid your hair for a stylish ‘do that looks comfortable and party-ready.
