How to look dapper this season: the CNY edit

How to look dapper this season: the CNY edit

From prints galore to essentials to beat the heat, revamp your Chinese New Year wardrobe with these new-season additions from Burton and Topman.

We’re more than two weeks into 2020 and before you know it, Chinese New Year’s right round the corner with barely a month to prep for the festivities. If you (like some of us) have been recycling the same red shirt every Chinese New Year, it’s high time to hit the refresh button when it comes to your wardrobe staples.

No idea where to begin? Take cues from Burton and Topman this season on ways to upgrade your CNY look:

Go Wild

Take a walk in the wild side with spring-ready motifs that are perfectly festive-ready without looking too try-hard. Hawaiian shirts get a spring reboot with leaf and parrot printed short-sleeved shirts, spotted at Burton and Topman. Available in neutral (navy and cream) and pastel hues (lilac and powder blue), all are versatile enough to be worn with slacks, trousers or shorts for any occasion. Last but not least, nothing spells “auspicious” than a tiger print shirt—festive and on-trend.

Prints for the Discerning

Not a fan of bright, loud motifs? Try a subtler approach with prints that quietly beckon a second glance. Wear geometric pique knit shirts for a casual day out, and switch your style up for the evening with paisley-printed and gingham oxford button-downs—excellent options to impress the relatives during one of the many yee-sang dinners you have lined up.

Keep ‘Em Short

No room for denim jeans or trousers this CNY? Beat the heat while still looking well-dressed a pair of tailored shorts. Opt for skinny chino shorts in red, pink and grey stripes that can take you from day to night without breaking into a sweat. For a dash of formality, throw on a light jacket, hoodie or even a plaid shirt over your tee-and-shorts combo to ensure you still look good for pictures this festive season.
