Wear floral prints with an oriental spin loud and proud this Chinese New Year.
Floral prints come by a mad variety. To find oriental-inspired floral motif is super easy if you know what you’re looking for.
Opt for patterns of flowers infused with Chinese elements such as the use of bold bright blooms in earthy natural shades and watercolor/paintwork print styling.
But of course, it would be alternatively great if you choose to wear modern blossoms in other un-earthy shades and abstract interpretations. The key here is to get a floral print style that looks supremely fabulous on your figure. The rest is purely indulgence, yes?
Although wearing a completely black/white garb to celebrate the Chinese New Year isn’t recommended, you can get away by making the two non-colors the background feature instead.
A burst of floral patterns in a white or black contrasting background on a blouse, for example is perfectly alright, unless you’re a seriously hardcore Feng Shui follower.
Or if your grandma has set a serious rule that all must be in red, OR…you will be banned from taking part in family photo shoot sessions. Grannies before fashion, eh peeps?
