Ladies, have you decided on what to wear this coming lunar new year yet? Did our previous CNY party outfit ideas help you in any way to narrow down your selection? Still on a hunt? Then, feast on these ready-to-wear cheongsam or qipao dresses that can be shopped on the go.
The first cheongsam dress I’ve picked out from YESSTYLE as seen on the intro image of this piece is for the ladies who love charming lace in dreamy cream or flesh tone. The cap sleeves and mandarin collar are common features in the traditional Chinese dresses that I find very charming. This short cheongsam dress has short side slits on the skirt.
Available from size S to XXXL, you can be sure to find one that will fit your figure. Just make sure to utilize a measuring tape to ensure that you get the best fit for your body. If you don’t know how to use the measuring tape, check out this very simple video to guide you to measure your dress size.
Next, here’s a cheongsam dress that features a vibrant floral motif. If you’re a fan of patterned dresses, this one’s to consider:
A dress that can be taken from day to night, this floral qipao comes in various sizes so again, be sure to find the correct measurement. To see the dress in detail, click on the image to go to its product page. For those who prefer eye-catching prints, make this one your go-to dress! I love the short sleeves and compared to the first dress, this one has a longer hemline.
Do you know that green is the lucky color for the year of the sheep? So, instead of the predictable red, opt for a green cheongsam dress like this one. The three-quarter sleeves, the long hemline and the fact that it’s made of cotton makes this dress an instant winner. The long side slits will help you flaunt a little leg in an elegant way that only a qipao will be able to pull off.
Here’s another dark green cheongsam dress with long sleeves:
The solid green color makes this a minimalist qipao style to don paired with a white heel. This dress is made of linen and has a lovely midi hemline which is quite the trendy length to sport now. Love the decorative detailing on the neck and side slits.
An off-white cheongsam with cap sleeves and a midi length whispers the distant era of the nostalgic past. Although white as a color is shunned during celebrations if you’re adhering to strict Chinese color symbolism, it depends the wearer herself to decide. I know that some people wear black on the lunar new year for the sake of fashion and standing apart from the sea of red.
I just love the creamy floral look of this cheongsam dress. The subtle print rendered in pastel pinks, blues and a pop of orange and the pearl-like buttons make this dress a real stunning feminine piece to invest.
If you like to wear this dress for the lunar new year, be sure to make your order soon as it will take about one to two weeks to arrive. YESSTYLE does ship to Malaysia so you can breathe a sigh of relief!
Here’s another dreamy floral number that will ease right into your CNY party wardrobe if you’re looking for something effortless and romantic.
I don’t know why but I am swooning over the rustic floral patterns that decorate this cheongsam dress. Made of linen and cotton, this dress has a short hemline and also short sleeves. If you’re looking to express the wood element of the year of the ‘wooden’ sheep through your wardrobe, something earthy will fit right in!
Obviously, red has to make an appearance. This patterned cheongsam in pink and red ends my covet-worthy cheongsam dress list.
