Not sure what to wear to your family gatherings? Check out our CNY Shopping guide for all the essentials.

Ah, Chinese New Year. Red packets and pineapple tarts mixed with the awkward “got girlfriend/boyfriend or not, ah boy/girl?”. It’s a tumultuous time for all of us. However, one thing you can control is how you’ll pull up to your family gatherings. Get your feng shui in check with our CNY shopping guide 2019.

Keeping it clean and simple, you can never go wrong with a white t-shirt or red button up. There’s no need to over complicate it. The CDG t-shirt with a mini heart is a nice simple piece with a subtle flex. But if you’re feeling adventurous, go for something with a bigger pop of color from Puma’s latest collaboration with Bradley Theodore.

Outerwear

It gets kinda chilly at some restaurants, despite all the people crammed in for the yearly reunion dinner. We recommend getting red outerwear to keep the festive spirit high. Keep yourself warm with this red Stone Island jumper or this Nike tracksuit top. The former has a more subtle branding with the Stone Island patch, while the latter offers more opportunities for outfit combinations.

Your feet will be spoilt for choice, with many sneakers out there getting in on the Chinese New Year vibe.

Adidas has released three CNY-themed sneakers in festive reds, yellows and oranges. The Superstar and Yung-96 both get a lion dance-inspired motif on the heel patch and sockliner, while the BYW gets the full Chinese New Year treatment by Pharrell.

Onitsuka Tiger celebrates the zodiac animal of the year with the GSM by featuring an embossed pig on the lateral heel. CNY-inspired branding can be found on the insole.

If you’re not a fan of blatantly themed sneakers, Puma has simple sneakers with CNY colored accents. Timeless sneakers like the Puma Cali and the trendy Cell Endura are some options you could not go wrong with.

  • Adidas Superstar – S$180
  • Adidas Yung-96 – S$190
  • Pharrell x Adidas BYW CNY – S$380
  • Puma Cell Endura – S$219 (Available at Puma outlets islandwide, Limited Edt., Tangs and Leftfoot.
  • Puma Cali Wmns – S$159 (Available at Puma outlets islandwide, Tangs, Limited Edt., Seek, AW Lab, and Star360)

House visiting is an integral part of CNY and moving from house to house can be tiring, especially with all the oranges one has to bring. Make it easier with the Prime Time Round Case bag from Puma or keep it easy and casual with the Carhartt Payton Hip Bag for all your essentials.
