Red and gold

How to skirt the yearly struggle of toeing the line between festive and tacky: bring on the accessories, of course

Dressing up for Lunar New Year proves to be a perennial conundrum, and even the sleekest red ensemble can teeter towards a show of over-enthusiasm. The key here is to keep it tame instead of giving the auspicious shade free reign. Our suggestion? To don the colours red and gold in the form of accessories. 

Opt for extras in the eye-catching hue with a mini chained backpack from Miu Miu, Meccano pins from Loewe or suede sneakers from Gucci. These accessories build a visually impactful yet tasteful outfit, but steers well clear of the kitsch.
