Going overly matchy-matchy as a couple can be – as the kids say – “cringe”. But when it comes to the Lunar New Year and family dressing, we’re all in the mood to match. There’s just something sweetly significant about wearing your family bond on your sleeve (literally!) on this festive occasion, and marking your loves as part of your team, isn’t there? So get clad in one of these combos, and trust that the fashion scales will definitely be tipped in your favour this CNY 2024. May you live 龙 🐉 and prosper in the Year of the Dragon!
Maybe it’s just me, but the new dragon-inspired ‘Legend Has It’ print is utterly adorable! Even better, it’s available in designs for all ages, yes, even for the littlest ones (the smallest sized baby romper is 55cm). Prefer something less obviously dragon year? The (also) new Birds of Paradise print is a an instant classic that can’t go wrong! Shop Online, and at 58 Seng Poh Road #01-21 Singapore 160058

For everyone else in the family, there’s the tangerine New Beginnings range that’s perfect, as you can see above, for a happy family photoshoot. Shop Online
Le Petit Society
We’d face every fire while clad in the vibrant Dragon series, stay cool in the Chinese Motif series, and party on in the Garden series. Does this sound like we’ll have to buy something from each series that Le Petit Society has created for this Lunar New Year? Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps wink P/S: There are matching pet bandanas so fur-kids can twin along with the family too! Shop Online
