With Chinese New Year right around the corner, tis’ the season to dress to impress. Of course anything red’s a safe bet, but what if we told you that there’s a better alternative?

Since Western designers have constantly drawn on Asian influences as a source of inspiration (dating as far back to the 17th century, but notably in the world of fashion was the late Yves Saint Laurent’s 1977 Chinese collection), chinoiserie chic has always been a near-constant.

So, rather than choosing vermilion, carmine and scarlet for your Lunar New Year #OOTDs, why not opt for oriental-inspired fashion pieces instead?

From brocade and embroidery to oriental motifs, we’ve sussed out the best chinoiserie-styled numbers that will elevate your look during house visits this year.
