If you've been wearing the same cheongsam for the past three Chinese New Years, then you know that it's time to mix things up. And if you're going for that chic, nonchalant look, IT Girls have plenty of styling tips to offer. We did some serious Instagram stalking and scouted some style cues and outfits to take note of when shopping for the perfect CNY OOTD.
Maxi dress with interesting details
Look sophisticated without trying too hard by taking a cue from TV host and fashion blogger Janeena Chan. Pick a maxi dress with interesting details like floral embroidery and slit. Avoid looking too casual by choosing statement accessories such as tassel earrings and subtle metallic shoes.
Cold shoulder + pencil skirt
As a model and style influencer, Chelsea Robato is often seen pairing unexpected pieces together. If you also love following trends, you can skip the shopping and just hunt for clothes in your current wardrobe. Off-shoulders and cold shoulders were a big trend last year, so it's very likely that you own at least one garment in either of those styles. Just pair your cold shoulder top with a pencil skirt, then match the outfit with pumps and some CNY-appropriate jewellery. That's it; you're all set!
