Dress Code: Red

First Impressions

Chatters – OPI Infinite Shine

Such an auspicious occasion calls for indulging with a manicure. Take a break from your usual neutral tone of nail polish to paint the town – and your nails – red with OPI Infinite Shine 2 in A Kiss On The Chic.

Finishing Touches

Mane Priorities

Showcase: Negative Ion Hair Dryer

Be the mane attraction. Suited for straight hair – and ideal for winter weather – the fast-drying negative ion hair dryer is engineered for precision styling that results in smoother, shinier locks with less static or frizz.

Available at Showcase

Chatters: Refresh Bodifying Dry Shampoo

Whether you’re adhering to the “hair must not be washed on the first day of the lunar year” tradition or you’re challenged for time, refresh your hair between shampoos with Schwarzkopf Professional OSIS+ Refresh Dust dry shampoo.

Made For Men

RW & Co – 40 Hour Suit Blazer

To welcome the new year, a new suit is definitely in order. As black is a colour to be avoided when celebrating Lunar New Year, opt for a navy, charcoal or even a light grey instead.

Available at RW & Co

Aldo – Relari

Guys, put away your black leather boots and step out in blue suede shoes, dressed up with slim-leg charcoal trousers or kept casual with dark denim. The bonus? They’re easy to slip on and off when visiting someone’s home.

RW & Co – Textured Red Tie

Up your sartorial game wearing a red silk tie with an oh-so-subtle pattern. If wearing a suit feels too formal, pair with a dress shirt and layer on a luxe cashmere sweater.

Laid-Back Lads

RW & Co – Red Suit Blazer

Ruffle a few fashionable feathers donning this slim fit blazer, a modern interpretation to the dinner jacket. The gold embroidered feathers are striking against the dark red.
