While most women would opt for a more traditional look during the CNY festivities, sometimes a cheongsam might suit your tastes. After all, between all the bak kwa and the mahjong sessions, a tight-fitted cheongsam feels like the most uncomfortable thing to be wearing. And if your clothing is going to judge you for having that extra serving of pineapple tarts, then you’re probably better without it.
So in the mood of CNY and with all things yummy and comfortable in mind, we’ve come up with 5 outfit options that you can wear this year that doesn’t involve a cheongsam. Each of these looks will keep you feeling comfortable, and they won’t raise an eyebrow with the older folk.
