The Year of the Rabbit is nearly upon us. As we hop towards another year in the Lunar calendar, it’s time to find the outfit that will ensure it’s filled with fortune and light.
Red is synonymous with luck in Chinese culture, so what better colour to wear to celebrate? Whether you like to go all-in or prefer a more paired back look, here’s how we’d showcase this shade in style.
Welcome Surplus In Silk Satin
Our Rouge Emma Silk Pyjama set is the perfect look for those wanting to welcome in abundance. Soft and subtle with some serious style creds, this relaxed set features a stunning Japanese chrysanthemum inspired floral print in vivid red that's been designed exclusively by Emma Wallace. Wear with metallic stilettos, slick your hair back into a low pony and add on a chic cat eye to turn the glam up for this special occasion.
An Abundance Of Colour
We know the Emma Wallace Woman loves to go big when it comes to celebrating and nothing makes you feel like the star of the show like an all-red look. Our Lora Jumpsuit in bright crimson is the only choice for those who want to bring that main character energy to any Chinese New Year event. Crafted in soft jersey, it’s comfy and casual in feel, whilst the draped neckline and wide leg dial up the style value. We’d wear with barely there stilettos and opt for a red lip to really ensure luck is on your side.
Laid Back Lunar
If you’re ringing in the year of the Rabbit with a more casual affair, then our Bofly dress in cherry red is the wardrobe staple you need to hop to. Made in soft jersey, it pairs perfectly with chunky sneakers, a denim jacket and bucket hat – a look that can take you from a lunch with the family to shopping with your besties. Designed to be worn forwards or backwards, this mini dress is as versatile as it is cute.
If you’re heading to a glamorous setting to ring in the New Year, then it’s all about dialling up the impact. Our best-selling Tien Gown in bold and bright scarlet red, features a wrap front and cut out details on the waist and back. Elegant and sexy in equal measure, this evening gown is the only dress you need to dazzle as any celebration. Wear with chunky platforms and your hair in a slicked back bun for a bang-on-trend formal fit.
Details That Dazzle
If you’re more of a neutrals kind of girl, then going all in on the red trend can feel intimidating. If you’re looking for a more subtle take on the trend this Chinese New Year, then it’s all about those little details that can bring you a mighty dose of good fortune. We’d pick our Rouge print scrunchie in a decadent shade of red. With a cute bow edge, you can pretend these details are your own little ears for a bunny beautiful touch.
Now you know how to rock the luckiest shade around, it’s time to bet on red and get your outfit for Chinese New Year ready to roll. Don’t forget to tag us in your red looks on Instagram at @emmawallacedesigner.
