When it comes to wearing matching outfits with your partner and the little ones, there is no better time to do it than the Chinese New Year. And yes, we hear you.
The pandemic will likely limit the number of people you visit and meet. However, you can make every CNY stop count for the upcoming New Year by having fun with the family.
Perfect for photos (and the gram), we found nine local brands that offer adorable, chic and gorgeous matching outfits.
From cheongsams to flowing dresses and mandarin collar shirts, there’s a good mix for every family.

For its CNY2022 collection, The Elly Store offers 16 prints and four different lace colors. From pastel pink peonies decorating the fabric to colorful tigers on a white background, there are patterns suitable for all families.
The best part is that they don’t limit their cuts to cheongsams or changpaos. From summer dresses to polo shirts, the outfits in this line can be worn outside of Chinese New Year, so say goodbye to CNY exclusive clothes that seem awkward any other time of the year.
