With the Lunar New Year just around the corner, it is time that you put some serious thought into what you will be wearing. New clothes are after all, part of the tradition – and that simply means you have a good excuse to shop.

But festive dressing can be tricky in this instance. Do you go for something classic? Or will a more modern look suffice? You actually don’t have to choose. With the right fashion picks you can fuse the two elements together.

Take a look at the brands from Parkson that we have on this page. Any one of these outfits could very well impress your friends or relatives when you go visiting during the festive season.

A Blend Of Old And New

Peonies, birds and fish have long been regarded as auspicious in Chinese culture. Well, nothing heralds a fortuitous beginning more than having the three symbols come together in a harmonious romance.

On her: Voir Clothing dress, Miemoda earrings, Oggi necklace, Dynasty clutch, Shuz Ann heels. On him: Valentino Rudy shirt, Rare Rabbit Sweater, Rav Design jeans, Volkswagen shoes.

As it is, the blooming beauty of peonies serves as a sensual backdrop to Parkson’s fashion shoot. They appear on a galore of gorgeous qi paos, which are available from the Monica Quen, Cynthia Tang, Carven Ong, Phenomenal and Ethnic Sense labels.

Should that not fit your need to jazz things up a contemporary notch, look to the beautiful chinoiserie offerings instead. Vangie, Sfera and Voir Clothing all have beautiful selections that will charm you.

Those who prefer simpler styles yet still want to make a statement can check out Hush Puppies Edition, Ne:ss, South China Sea or Arrow. These labels offer casual chic pieces that would fit right in for reunion dinners.

For the lads, revisit old school charm with China Town Classic shirts with oriental motifs but keep your look trendy by pairing them with comfortable, fuss free pants from Snails or Polo Haus.

If Eastern chic is not the look you are going for, then keep it charmingly urban. Stylish gents can take their pick from labels like Rare Rabbit, Marq, The Class, Pierre Cardin and Jeep – each with its own distinctive style.

You can’t forget about accessorising though. Complement your unique, personal style with dainty earrings, elegant necklaces and handbags. Be sure that you are well heeled as well, as the right footwear can make or break your carefully selected wardrobe.

Dynasty, Miemoda, Oggi, Carlo Rino, Sachs, Dynasty, Savile Row, Cr2, Shuz Ann, Lee Cooper, Josef Seibel, Ciano, Volkswagen and US Polo Assn are all brands you need to look out for when shopping for accessories.
