As Lunar New Year approaches, it's time to think about how to welcome the new lunar cycle with style and grace. Whether you're attending a family gathering, participating in local festivities, or simply want to honor the tradition, choosing the right dress can make your celebration even more special. Here's a guide to the different outfits that are perfect for the Lunar New Year.
1. The Quintessential Cheongsam/Qipao
A traditional Chinese dress known for its elegance and form-fitting silhouette, the Cheongsam, or Qipao, features a high collar, delicate floral patterns, and side slits. Modern iterations might include variations in length and sleeve style, offering a perfect blend of classic and contemporary. Check out our Ruyi Short-Sleeved Cheongsam Dress & Luna Oriental Keyhole Cheongsam Dress~
2. Vibrant A-Line and/or Fit and Flare Ruffle Dresses
For those who prefer a more relaxed fit, A-line and/or fit-and-flare ruffle dresses in red or pink or yellow can be a charming option. These dresses are flattering on various body types and offer more freedom of movement, making them ideal for long celebrations. Ruffle dresses have always been trending, and most of The Fleur Label's ruffle dresses have functional side pockets that you can keep your phones & red packets! We also have sleeveless (Selina Sleeveless Ruffle Dress) and short-sleeved options (Serena Short-Sleeved Ruffle Dress)~ If you prefer more adorable looks, you can check out our Bailey Babydoll Ruffle Dress too!
3. Floral Prints Dresses
Flowers symbolize growth and prosperity, making floral midi dresses an apt choice for the occasion. These dresses, often adorned with blossoms, convey a sense of joy and renewal. Some of our prints are exclusively designed and manufactured on our own, and some include reversible sides where you can have 2 different looks with just one piece of apparel!

4. Elegant Long Dresses
For a more formal Lunar New Year event, long gowns in auspicious colors can provide a sense of grandeur and formality to the celebration. Presenting to you our Helena Tiered Midi Dress which comes with adjustable straps and functional side pockets.
5. Pastel Pleated Apparels
Soft pastels can also be a part of your Lunar New Year wardrobe, especially if they're in pleated styles that add texture and flow to your outfit - such as our Estelle Pleated Jumpsuit.
Choosing the Right Colors
Red is the most auspicious color for Lunar New Year, symbolizing good fortune and joy. However, don't be afraid to explore other options like yellow for prosperity, pink for romance, or green for health.
Whatever style you choose, pick the outfits that reflect your personal taste while respecting the Lunar New Year's rich traditions. It's a time to celebrate new beginnings, family, and the hope of a prosperous year ahead, so dress in a way that makes you feel confident and joyful.
