An Embroidered Floral Cheongsam Top

Fashion | February 17, 2015 | By


As tomorrow is Chinese New Year’s Eve, today’s post will be on one of my CNY look comprising of a pretty cheongsam top with embroidered details. The rest of the week will be dedicated to celebrations so this will be the only outfit post this week! As all of you are important to me, I just want to let you know I will be slower in responses during this period.

Cheongsam designs sprout up in many boutiques and online stores as Chinese New Year approaches every year! I love such designs (also known as the Mandarin gown in English) as they exude a nostalgia charm which is very appealing. The version I featured today is a modernized style of a long top with lovely embroidered floral prints! I wore a flare skirt underneath it to add a fun touch to the look.

Wishing everyone who celebrates Chinese New Year a great holiday! See you again after Chinese New Year!

Top – The CheongsamShoppe

    Thanks for the inspiration! I’ve actually been thinking lately that I’d want to give one of these tops (also, thanks for teaching me that it’s called a “Cheongsam”) a modern look, but I didn’t quite know how to approach it.

    Very pretty! I love how you modernized this cheongsam outfit. 🙂
    I remember when I went to Taiwan during Chinese new year, the shops were closed for about a week. Is it the same in your place? 😀
    Happy Chinese New Year! I hope you have a great celebration! 😉
