Chubby Chubby is known for their fun, quirky, graphic prints that make their range well loved by children and parents alike, and this year’s Two-Oh Two-Oh collection is no exception. In fact, they’ve taken things up a notch with matching family outfits that truly suit the whole fam — pets included! We’ve personally got our eye on Mommy’s Flutter Shirt Dress ($138), and also love the vibrant Blue Victory Yay print (pictured above) that has cute matching styles for the whole family. Limited quantities available.

Elly is a stalwart on our annual Chinese New Year cheongsam list, and with good reason – their prints are always playful and oh-so adorable on babies and kids. They’re all about clothes that are classic, chic and fun, yet comfortable enough for kids to run and play in. Plus we love the matching designs for older siblings, mamas, dads, and even grandparents! This year in honor of the Year of the Rat (or mouse?) they’ve done a super fun collaboration with Disney, which means some adorable Mickey Mouse-themed dresses (we can’t even with this baby cheongsam!) and shirts. On the subtler side, we love the chic and well-priced Red Ladies Pleated Midi Skirt ($69), which we think will provide mileage all year round!

It’s no secret that Le Petit Society’s threads are some of our faves, and it seems their designs just get cuter every year! This time round they’re playing with mostly florals (love the delicate cherry blossoms!) and bird prints in coordinated (but never too matchy-matchy) outfits for the whole fam, with options even for the littlest ones in the family. And how much do we love the playful Ladies Long-sleeved Romper ($128) pictured above?!
The biggest stockist of CNY family fashions in Singapore, Little Qipao can kit out the whole fam in coordinating prints and colours. We particularly like their matching dresses for mamas and daughters, along with their bold geometric and pineapple prints.
This homegrown, super well-priced fashion label has turned out a gorgeous collection of Chinese New Year outfits for mamas, with some adorable matching outfits for kiddos to boot. The Tropicana Dream pants in Cream ($46.90) and Amboree Sash Tie dress ($49.90) top our mama wishlist, while the matching Nickelle camisole top ($33.90) for little girls is sure to become a wardrobe mainstay.
We’re so excited for Luna and Moon’s follow-up to their debut Lunar New Year collection from last year! The range features muted tones and pretty prints for boys and girls alike, with subtle Mandarin collars and adorable Mama & Me matching cheongsams (like the cutie pictured above!). Sizes range from 6 months to 10 years old, so there’s definitely a piece for every kiddo. Sibling twinning sets are also available! Click here for stockists, or order online.
Hurry mamas: some of these adorable, reversible dresses and rompers have already started selling out. Two designs in one dress? A boy’s shirt that can be worn two ways? In many, many, fun prints? How brilliant – you get two outfits in one! Click here for stockists! (Psst! If dresses aren’t your thing, Maison Q makes some very cute cheongsam tops for women, including the requisite mouse print for this year!) This girl’s reversible jumpsuit ($79) is also pretty rad.
This boutique homegrown brand offers gorgeous looks for the whole family – including girls, boys, and dads – though their selection for mamas is particularly wow-worthy, with fashion-forward pieces like rompers, shoulder-baring styles, modern cheongsams and and maxi dresses. (They even do custom pieces for special events – amazing!) Sizes go up to UK Size 16, and all their fabrics are breathable, soft and kid-friendly. On the pricier side, but the quality shows!

We’ve been seeing Moley Apparels a lot in our IG feed, and have to give the thumbs up to anyone who can create a 5-piece family outfit ensemble that even incorporates an adorable baby onesie! We also like that Moley Apparels is well-priced, and has convenient shop locations all over the island. We think the “Oriental Rings” series is the cutest of the bunch!
Both we and our kiddos are Sea Apple devotees when it comes to CNY outfits; they always bring it with stylish cuts and unique prints made from 100% certified GOTS organic cotton that stand out (but in a good, understated kinda way). This year’s collection is filled with pieces for women, babies, little girls and boys (this cheongsam, OMG!), with an additional capsule collection, “The Mouse Who Loved Red“, just for littlies.
