After the cutest kids’ cheongsam in Singapore this Chinese New Year? Nab these festive dresses and Mandarin collar shirts for girls, boys and babies!
Chinese New Year begins Friday 12 February, mama! Between safe, intimate family reunions at all the best restaurants and socially distanced 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 children’s CNY fashion looks for 2021, including kids’ cheongsams, Mandarin collar shirts and more!
NB: A lot of the designers’ websites are showing that designs are selling fast, but we think you’ll find a great selection at major department stores. When all else fails, the CNY fairs in many malls’ lobby atriums should have a kids’ cheongsam in a pinch!

Could we love stylish and comfortable, minimalist kidswear line Melon any more? Their new Fresh Edit will start you off bright and fresh for the new year, and the best part is they can totally be worn all year round!
Chubby Chubby is known for their fun, quirky, graphic prints that make their range well-loved by children and parents alike! Their latest collection is a little more modern, so if you’re looking for traditional-looking cheongsam-inspired outfits you can have a look at past collections (that also happen to be on sale!). The bright colours will lift anyone’s mood this festive season and will definitely make for great photo ops.
