Pro-tip: Get a dress that comes with a waist sash or an adjustable waistband that still provides some shape.

Quick math shows that unfortunately, Mondays through Fridays account for more days of the week than Saturdays and Sundays. So it only makes sense that practical folks prioritise CNY clothes that are also work-appropriate.
You won’t be at risk of looking like a stereotypical OL with the modest yet flattering apparel from Mds. From cinched waistlines to below-the-knee “mermaid” cuts, their dresses help to accentuate that hourglass figure so you’ll look like you had a glow up since last year’s reunion, all while being well put-together at work once festive season ends.

Rule number one of prudent CNY shopping: don’t buy something that you wouldn’t wear otherwise.
If you refuse to be caught dead wearing firetruck-red prints in any other month of the year, Love & Bravery carries versatile, neutral essentials you can easily dress up or down, depending on the occasion. Amp up the glamour during CNY home visits with accessories like statement bag, or keep it effortlessly chic for future weekend hangouts just as it is.

A for Arcade offers old school-influenced apparel for something bold, baggy and less-conventional for your next bout of reunion gatherings. Both apparels for ladies and lads are available here as well, there’s also the option to go matchy-matchy with your siblings or S/O.

When in doubt, lace and ruffles are easy go-to elements to exude that demure charm. Appropriate for visiting the BF’s family for the first time, these dainty dresses from Fayth have high necklines and modest skirt lengths will help score some points. No one would be able to guess you snagged them at up to 40% off!
P.S. Sizes here are running out fast so be sure to get them ASAP.

Lace and ruffles aside, floral prints are also something that never fails for CNY. Look sweeter than that mandarin orange you’re eating with Her Velvet Vase’s variety of floral outfits. Other than midi dresses, you’ll also find discounted jumpsuits and floral-embroidered pants to play blackjack and banluck on the floor without worries.
At Shopsassydream, the good news is that most of the products in their sale section are going at around a nifty 40% off – so savings will be more than marginal. Bring extra huat to your gatherings with their fun floral dresses of vibrant colours – or, if crazy colours aren’t your thing, softer, solid-coloured designs are available as well.

Any shopaholic worth their salt will know of The Closet Lover. On top of sales pieces, their regular collections often get swept off the virtual shelves in a jiffy. So, we’re more than happy to find that as of time of writing, they’re still more or less fully-stocked, with sizes that range from XXS to XL for many of their designs.

Among their 18-page-long list of sales items, find plenty of CNY-appropriate wears with floral prints and reddish hues, going at up to 20% off. After, these chic dresses can also easily be repurposed for your next semi-formal occasion, like the upcoming Valentine’s Day or a fancy dinner.

While most CNY 2021 collections are going at a premium price, The Stage Walk has last year’s CNY collection offered at a sweet discount. Among the many designs from lace to floral, those who love dreamy pastel colours can go for their abstract prints for a subtle touch of colour. But be sure to buy them soon as sizes are selling out fast!
