In Chinese culture, red is a colour that symbolises wealth, luck and happiness, which makes it a good enough reason for you to wear this particular hue out during Chinese New Year. Let your tops be the centre of attention at this year’s house visits!
We’ve culled 12 great options for you to take your pick from. And since some of you might be giving out hongbaos this year (because #adulting), we’ve made sure none of the pieces we’ve shortlisted are above $188. You’re welcome.
What we love about this Mango floral printed shirt is its versatility. You can elevate it by wearing it underneath an orange satin slip dress, but once you’re done with Chinese New Year, dress it down casually with denim shorts for a trip to the malls, or work it as a cover-up over your pastel pink bikini to a beach party.
Don’t be afraid to go for something eye-catching. Opt for a piece that features striking leopard prints, like this pajama-styled top from Reformation. Finish the look with a touch of formality by wearing it with a pair of smart trousers and some mid-heel sandals.
If donning a vermilion top isn’t something that is in line with your style, wear a piece that has subtle shades of red, like this bra top. Rock this piece with a white tshirt underneath and a sleek leather skirt.
Stylish and sophisticated, we recommend rocking a bright number, like this H&M piece, that’s versatile enough for you to weave into your work closet (talk about two for the price of one!). Plus, this wrap blouse features a feminine bow, which will create the illusion of a curvier body silhouette.
Boho lovers out there, this top is for you. Flaunt your collarbone with this V-neck blouse that adds a tinge of sexiness. Channel the effortless Parisian vibe by wearing it with a pair of cropped flare jeans and some thong heeled sandals.
Nothing beats a simple, scarlet t-shirt. They’re highly versatile pieces that can be worn with anything in your closet. However, don’t play it safe with a plain piece — add a dose of girlish charm with one that sports a cute Mickey embroidery.
Exude femininity with a piece that sports floral prints and delicate ruffles on its sleeves. Approach it with gravitas by wearing it with a sleek satin midi skirt and a dainty necklace.
Ring in the Lunar New Year with a bang with this bold, baroque printed shirt from Zara. Make a statement by tucking it into a yellow pleated skirt and round up the ensemble by slipping into a pair of khaki sneakers.
A silk camisole top will always get our approval, since it’s both stylish and sexy. What we’d recommend: Wear it with skinny jeans and throw on a sharp cotton blazer to elevate your look.
Bare some skin by wearing a top that highlights one of the sexiest body parts: The collarbone. Keep things classy by matching this piece with either a maxi skirt or a pair of denim jeans.
Keep yourself cool and comfortable during house visits by donning a short sleeve shirt. Wear this with a tartan printed wrap skirt and a pair of leather brogues for that preppy vibe.
