Chinese New Year is a festive occasion where families get together happily! It’s one of the occasions that we look forward to the most every year as there is something for everyone. Relatives get to chat and catch up with each other, cousins have their annual gambling session, while kids get to receive countless red packets! However, one of the most important aspects of CNY has to be the dressing up! During this festive season, there is no overdressed, only the underdressed. It is common for girls to worry about our outfits even weeks before CNY! Thus, with only a month left to CNY, we have compiled 8 online retailers to complete your 2018 CNY #ootd and impress all your relatives!
