Go Red The Subtle Way With These CNY-Appropriate Accessories

Not all of us are into head-to-toe red outfits for CNY. Here's our edit of the red accessories to rep the auspicious colour this season instead.
Leather and metal belt, $1,590, Chanel
A thin belt is a great way to accentuate the waist, and this one from Chanel adds a touch of luxe-prep with its ribbon bow. Pair this with a plain white dress for that touch of New Year red, or why not pair it with a full-red outfit? Leather belt, $490, Moschino
If you’re looking for a more basic red belt, this belt might be the one for you. Perfect for casual CNY outfits, this red and gold would contrast nicely with jeans and a basic tee.  Shrimps beaded headband, $205, www.matchesfashion.com
If you’re in the mood for hair accessories, why not try this whimsical beaded headband? The London designer is known for her eclectic playful designs – so up the ante this CNY with this unique accessory.    Silk Scarf, $570, Salvatore Ferragamo
From wearing it in your hair bandana style, to using it as a neckerchief to amp up your outfit – the scarf is one of the most underrated accessories you can incorporate into your outfits. Outfit hack: you can even swap through the different scarf styles for each house you’re visiting.  Leather belt bag, $1,543, Gucci
As mentioned before, a belt bag is one of the best ways to go hands-free and still look chic during CNY.  Plus, this bag doubles up as a clutch when you remove the belt – talk about pretty and functional. Tom Ford Eyewear acetate sunglasses, $375, www.matchesfashion.com
With the perpetual Singapore heat, what better way to keep your peepers safe from the UV rays when you’re out and about than with a pair of chic sunnies? The red frame of these glasses also make it a simple-yet-statement addition to any outfit.  Sunglasses, price available in-store, Fendi
These sunglasses are another option when doing your CNY visiting. The extra red trimming on the top also help to channel futuristic vibes while still looking “safe” enough for family visits.     Earrings, price available in-store, Balenciaga
A pair of earrings should never be underestimated when it comes to completing your outfit. These small charms will add a dainty and minimalistic touch to your look, without feeling too heavy on the ears, which is crucial when you’ve got to wear your earrings for extended periods. Pacharee gold-plated earrings, US$216 (S$291), www.net-a-porter.com
Want something more OTT when it comes to your earrings? This pair that slightly resembles the traditional firecrackers might be perfect for the festivities. Felt hat, $1,100, Gucci
Hats are also a great option when it comes to accessorising during the CNY season. This classic red fedora will have you looking chic and put together with little effort. Hat, price available in-store, Miu Miu
If fedoras aren’t your style, try this hat from Miu Miu. It’s oversized silhouette is flattering for just about anyone, and it’ll keep your face protected from UV rays while doing your visiting.
