After the cutest kids cheongsam in Singapore this Chinese New Year? Scurry to nab these festive dresses and Mandarin collar shirts for girls, boys and babies!
Chinese New Year begins Saturday 25 January, mama! Between family reunions at all the best restaurants and school celebrations, it’s time to get your little ones’ Chinese New Year outfits sorted. Ditch fast fashion styles and instead look to these cute prints and designs from local brands in our list of top CNY children’s fashion looks for 2020, including kids’ cheongsams, Mandarin collar shirts, adorable mouse-themed rompers and more! NB: A lot of the designers’ websites are showing as sold out, but we visited Takashimaya this past weekend and found a great selection. When all else fails, the CNY fairs in many malls’ lobby atriums should have a kids’ cheongsam in a pinch.
With our style guide, your Year of the Rat outfits are sure to make your littlies feel like a big cheese!

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. 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.

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, with options even for the littlest ones in the family.
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 bold geometric and pineapple prints.
This homegrown, super well-priced fashion label has turned out some adorable Chinese New Year outfits for kiddos. Deck your mini fashionista out with the Nickelle camisole top ($33.90) or Katerina ruffle hem romper ($46.90), both sure to become wardrobe mainstays.
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. 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 sold out. Two designs in one dress? In many, many, fun prints? How brilliant – you get two outfits in one! This girl’s reversible jumpsuit ($79) is also pretty rad.
This boutique homegrown brand offers gorgeous looks for girls and boys. (They even do custom pieces for special events – amazing!) 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 babies, little girls and boys, with an additional capsule collection, “The Mouse Who Loved Red“, just for littlies.
