Lunar New Year: Dressing for the Year of the Rabbit
All the goodies to consider wearing, gifting and adding into the fold when celebrating this Lunar New Year.
With the Lunar New Year fast approaching us, we thought it timely to celebrate this momentous occasion in the Zodiac calendar.
2023 in the Lunar calendar marks the year of the Rabbit, and according to the Chinese zodiac, the Rabbit represents pride, earnestness and the moon. When it comes to lucky colours for those born in the year of the rabbit, tradition favours hues of red, pink, purple and blue. That is why, you will notice a sea of red goodies in our celebratory edit of LNY goodies below.
Traditionally speaking, red is THE colour of good fortune when it comes to the major cultures in China, Vietnam, the Koreas, Singapore, and Malaysia. Just a few of our top red picks for dressing for Lunar New Year celebrations in 2023 are this Courrèges deep red singlet perfect for a balmy summer’s night, this Shona Joy shirred number for a family celebration and this APC Year of the Rabbit bag, for obvious reasons.
For those seeking to adhere to some of the other lucky hues that go along with the Rabbit zodiac, we love this lavender number by Lover, available via The Iconic, as a cute mini to wear to any festive shindig. And for those preferring to pick pink, we’re obsessed with this Magda Burtrym 80’s power suit moment complete with cute rosettes.
When it comes to the beauty game, such is tradition to bring luminosity and vibrance to your look when celebrating the new lunar year. To nail the luminous, glass skin look, apply a generous layer of Kora Organic’s Tumeric Glow Moisturiser, before applying Chanel’s effervescent Radiant Moisture-Rich Fluid Foundation.
Oh and lastly, to top everything off and really celebrate the year o the bunny with this adorable Bunny Ears Gold Ring by Natasha Zinko.
