As a Chinese girl growing up in America, I didn’t always get to celebrate Lunar New Year, which is the biggest holiday in China. So I’m super excited that this year, I’ll be going back to China to spend the Lunar New Year with my Dad and his side of the family. My Dad actually lives in Hong Kong, so Lunar New Year is the perfect time to go back and celebrate with my loved ones. I love spending the holiday in China as it’s so fun and festive, it’s kind of like Christmas here in the states. So of course I’ve already planned out my festive attire for the occasion. The one thing you must wear on Lunar New Year is red – it’s a symbol of good luck and prosperity. So I went with a vibrant red blouse and red plaid coat for a joyous vibe. I chose a big striped circle skirt to go with the blouse and match my black and gold jewelry from Folli Follie, which is the real star of this outfit.
I have to say I’m obsessed with these black and gold jewelry pieces from Folli Follie. I’m not usually a black jewelry type of girl as I tend to gravitate towards color, but these pieces manage to be elegantly timeless yet contemporary chic at the same time. The mix of black and gold is so tastefully done and the jewelry has such weight to it, making it look and feel expensive. I chose a matching earrings and bracelet set from the Style Stories collection at Folli Follie. These black bauble earrings are just so effortless, they would go with anything from a super feminine outfit to a T-shirt and jeans. But my favorite piece is definitely the large black and gold statement bracelet, I just can’t get over how simple yet bold it is!
As a self-proclaimed master of layering, of course I had to layer two necklaces to accentuate the neckline of my blouse. I chose two pieces from Folli Follie: a delicate butterfly necklace paired with a more edgy black chain necklace. The great thing about both necklaces is that they are adjustable in length, so I was able to make the butterfly one longer and the chain one shorter for a layered effect. This is one of those outfits where the jewelry really completes the look and pulls everything together.
