1. Go for the ‘Athleisure’ style if you’re always going back and fourth between your house and the gym
You’re always on the way to or from the gym. That doesn’t mean you can’t look good doing so! Consisting of a bright and festive button-up shirt, a white logo t-shirt, and some dark khakis with four-way stretch, you’re all set for the day!
2. Go for the ‘Coffee Shop Chic’ look for a laid back vibe

Get a shirt with a unique pattern, preferably in cooler tones, and pair it with some light grey or blue khakis. This will give you a (literally) cool look. Finish it off with a leather belt, your favourite watch, and a pair of dark boat shoes!
3. Looking ‘normal’ isn’t bad. That’s where ‘Normcore’ comes in.
‘Normcore’ is a pretty hot trend right now. It revolves around people wearing ‘normal’ looking clothes, like checkered shirts, khakis, and sneakers. When done right, you’ll look awesome. For your ‘normcore’ look, go for a festive button-up, some light khakis or chinos, and your favourite sneakers!
4. Go for a smart-casual style if you want a versatile look
We all have places to be during Chinese New Year. Sometimes plans fall really close to each other and that forces us to worry about what to wear for each occasion. With a simple crewneck sweatshirt, some neutral-coloured khakis, and a crisp pair of white sneakers, you’re ready for any and every occasion.
5. If you want to attract the right kind of attention, go for something elegant, with some understated flair
Especially great for when you’re at your boss’ open house, wearing a light blue Oxford shirt and a pair of light khakis will give you a smart, sophisticated look. Extra brownie points for you! Top it all off with a pair of leather shoes, not only do you look elegant, but you’ve got some extra flair as well.

When you pair a short-sleeved button-up with some light khaki shorts, you’ve got a winning combination. Complete the look with a matching pair of boat shoes and you’ve got yourself a super fun, beachside look.
7. Quick, comfy, and ready for anything
This is the perfect outfit for the times you just need put together a quick outfit to run some errands for your mum, or even just to get some fresh air away from the hustle and bustle of the CNY crowd.

8. If you’re travelling long distance, you’ll want to stay comfy, but also look good too
Traveling can be a real adventure, but it can also be super exhausting if you’re not dressed for it. You can opt for a nice, cosy jacket on top of an ong red t-shirt for those indoor events. Pair those two with some light khakis and your favourite sneakers. Then you’ve got yourself a completely comfortable, festive look, without all the hassle.
