Have your own red carpet moment  when you visit friends and relatives this Chinese New Year with these outstanding outfits inspired by your favourite celebrities. Have fun with your #ootds across the festive season with these fashion forward options, whether you prefer a dress or playsuit.

Break free of traditional thinking that you have to wear red — incorporate the auspicious colour with your lipstick, bag or shoes instead. Rather, think pink, gold and florals with asymmetrical detailing, bold prints or dazzling embellishments. Plus, these delightful pieces can be worn again for birthday parties, fancy dinner dates and whenever you need a pick-me-up.


Heize's mini dress with romantic ruffles and exaggerated shoulders is a bold look you can dress down with strappy sandals instead of thigh high boots.
