You might be staying at home this Chinese New Year, or out visiting a couple of your closest relatives — either way, no matter the safe distancing measures in place, you’ll want to make this year count. For that, red and gold, the traditional colours of luck and prosperity should be on your radar, but how do you make dressing on theme with the Chinese lanterns and sometimes-gaudy decorations effortlessly chic? We’ve got these NET-A-PORTER‘s picks to thank.
With hints of pink, orange, subtle golds, and classic reds, the dresses, tops, skirts, and accessories — and even some beauty items too — the luxury retailer manages to transform the typical Lunar New Year colours into something to be envied. These include ready-to-wear pieces from Bottega, Gucci and Balmain, as well as contemporary designers such as Alison Lou and Jennifer Mayer, items which we don’t mind wearing all year round actually. A deep red, for instance, beats the cliché with style points to spare, while gilded accessories in small doses will elevate rather than overwhelm your look. Then, top it off with a red lipstick and gold highlighter to stun at reunion dinners to come.
