Get your hands on a standout CNY outfit
When you visit all your relatives during the festive season, you are going to want to look your best. CNY is the perfect excuse for you to splurge on a good quality dress or shirt! After all, getting decked in a new outfit from head to toe is almost a customary practice. Zalora has beautiful Chinese New Year outfits for both men and women from their new CNY collection. The females can choose to get a floral cheongsam to fit the occasion or a simple peplum top paired with an origami skirt for a more casual feel. On top of that, if reds seemed like an intimidating color, why not try darker shades like plum or maroons? Vibrant shades like pink, pastels, and yellows are not only stylish and modern, they are also fitting of the happy vibes in the air this season.
For the gentlemen, find an array of shorts and sleeved shirts, both long and short, to stay festive and chic at the same time. Opt for printed patterns on a white crisp shirt to add funk and colors to your assemble. Add a cotton blazer from Benjamin Barker and roll up the sleeves for a casual yet smart look. Match them with a pair of sneakers from Nike if you are expected to do a lot of walking in one day, or simply get a pair of loafers, which never goes out of style.
Besides Zalora, other shops like ASOS, ShopBop, Pomelo, MR PORTER, and online marketplaces like Qoo10 are also great spots to get your wardrobe refreshed. Don't forget to check out the accessorizing options for a full outfit. A cute pair of ballet flats or a gorgeous pair of toe-peeking suede heels from Charles & Keith will change up the entire mood of your outfit. Feminine and cute to eye-catching and sophisticated, mix and match to decide your Chinese New Year style in 2020! Keep your eye out on this page to get the latest deals.
Remember, this is the season to mingle, play catch up and have light-hearted fun! Even if you are someone who prefers to stick to minimalistic styles and muted colors, try to pair with one contrasting color as an accent point. A pair of neon earrings or a shiny pair of shoes with studs would make for a great topic starter as well! Experiment more this CNY 2020!
Achieve healthy, glowing look this Lunar New Year
Getting our outfits done is just part one - having a healthy glowing skin and amazing makeup is essential to complete the look. Skincare has been an increasingly looked into topic by both men and women, and for good reasons. After all, who don't want to have healthy-looking skin?
Skincare could be separated into two sections - the cosmetics that you apply on your face, and the supplement and good diet that you consume. iHerbs, GNC, and Brands are here to help you detox and achieve a healthier diet. This is especially important during Chinese New Year, where most gatherings revolved around full and scrumptious meals. More often than not, this results in over-eating, or consumption of high-calorie and unhealthy food. All these could cause stress on the body, causing breakouts - yikes! Grab these detox and vitamins to replenish what you lost from late-night snacking and social drinking.
And then, there is the skincare! For Asian skin types, we often turn towards Asian brands. These brands could be found on Hermo and Althea easily, or on the official sites on Lazada for your online shopping leisure. Alternatively, Sephora also boasts of a great list of mid-range to high-end skincare. No matter what age you are, skincare is important to have great skin in our hot and humid weather. Be sure to moisturize and give that layer of sunscreen this CNY!
For those who go the extra mile, make up is there to conceal any remaining flaws, pores and add a touch of bling to the CNY look. Sephora and Lookfantastic have a list of crowd favourites from brands you might not usually see, including the well-loved UK brand Pixi, or Nyx. Whether you're going for the natural look or the full-on glamour chic, there's an array of items and palettes to get started on. New to makeup and need tips? We suggest going with a good, flattering highlight and contour, which adds depth and dimension to your face. For the eyes, go for a rosy red shade, or opt for natural browns for a soft flattering look. Don't be afraid to try new things this year as well!
Get stuffed on CNY goodies with these awesome F&B deals
With the New Year festivities coming along, you want to make sure that your house has enough food for your guests.

Not to forget, what is CNY without alcohol? Get beers, liqueurs, wine, sake and other alcohols. No matter what kind of guests you are hosting, there's bound to be something for their tastes.
Alternatively, you're an amateur chef and would like some options to fill your table. Getting into the car and driving off to the nearest restaurant might be a possible idea, but another would be to call food delivery! That's right, food delivery services could help you prepare a few a la carte dishes of your choice as you get working on the others at home. With a mix of both homecooked food and restaurant delivery, you are ready for a feast this Lunar New Year!
Also, don't forget to grab some snacks! Dried fruits, biscuits and pineapple tarts are staples not to be missed. They help to keep the guests occupied before the actual meal starts, especially for those who arrived earlier in the day. Plus, they're great munchies to keep you, the host, powering through the day as well!

Don’t miss out on limited-time-only CNY promotions!
There are more promo deals to be found this year of course! Whether you are looking for items to spruce up your home, like furniture and decor, or resources like Ang Bao (red packets), the best way to discover them is through online marketplaces. Qoo10, Taobao, AliExpress, Shopee and more, find CNY promos abound as you roam for your shopping list.
On that note, it's best to start off having a clear list of what you are looking for! Are you on the search for a large, replacement furniture, such as a new couch or bookshelf? Then better act on it earlier as it takes more time to have them shipped and then for you to assemble it by the time Chinese New Year rolls around. If you're looking for decorations like lanterns, spring flowers and more, jot them down and try to visualize how you want to turn your living space into.
The best part about marketplaces is that you can purchase a large variety of items across different categories. If you can't find a particular shirt or a lipstick color of your favourite makeup brand on the official sites, try your luck here! Keep an eye out for the fabulous CNY events that would take place, on top of these glorious flash deals and festive promos. Clear out your shopping list on a single site or across several, as you will still get cashback whenever you shop via ShopBack!
