This blog is dedicated to lolitas who want to celebrate the Lunar New Year but don't know what kind of lolita clothes to pick. 20th January is the Chinese Lunar New Year and many lolita indie brands have already released their "Lunar New Year Celebration" series. Therefore, you have plenty of lolita fashion choices and ideas to discover this year.

In addition to some lolita and kawaii coordinate ideas, this article will also introduce some Chinese New Year customs to help you celebrate the New Year better.

 

Idea 1: Qi Lolita in Lucky Red

In Chinese traditional culture, wearing red clothes in the lunar new year means good luck, health, peace, and wealth in the upcoming year, which is why red-colored lolita dresses are especially common at this time of year, especially in Qi Lolita and Han Lolita.


Tank Top + Pleated Skirt + Outerwear • $94.5


Hairclips • $5.14

Leg Warmers • $16.57

Shoes • $41.49

 

The bun hairclips and Pankous(Chinese Frog, a type of button in Chinese traditional culture) on legwear and collars make this outfit full of the Chinese Qi Pao vibe.

 

 

Idea 2: Maid Lolita in Lucky Red

2023 is the Year of the Rabbit, so rabbit-themed elements in prints and other lolita items are also particularly abundant.

And a maid-style lolita dress with rabbit prints is a popular theme this year.


OP + Apron + Neck Bowknot + Waist Bowknot • $109.50


Bunny Ear Clips • $7.66

OTKs • $12.80

Shoes • $55.81

 

This outfit really brings me of a girl who loves cooking Chinese food and I can smell the delicious food right now. Except for the Pankou details on the sleeves and front, the removable white aprons feature cute rabbit embroideries and bunny ears on the waist.

 

 

Idea 3: Hime Lolita × Qi Lolita

Some indie brands will also release some Qi Lolita dresses with a strong "Chinese Princess" vibe, using Chinese traditional lucky elements such as clouds, cranes, red lanterns, winter sweets, etc.

*Winter Sweets - In traditional Chinese culture, the Chinese plum is praised by the people for its ability to open in the cold winter, symbolizing a noble soul, faithfulness, independence, and perseverance.

This "Spring Rabbit" outfit also has a plush winter coat and the JSK is made from corduroy which makes it warm enough to wear on a cold day. And the overlays on the dress add airy and gorgeousness to the whole look.

The big red bowknot hair clip features some typical Chinese ornaments in the center and both sides are decorated with plush balls and tassels.

 

Idea 4: Casual Lolita with Rabbit Elements

Casual lolita is also a good choice if you just want to lounge. The cut and silhouette of this main piece are easy to walk around in and you can wear it on a day-to-day basis. 

*Red Lanterns - Red lanterns symbolize family reunion, business prosperity, red-hot, happiness, light, vitality, success, and prosperity. Red lanterns are always hung high to signify the beginning of the new year with good luck.

The JSK and bolero are all in velvet and very comfortable to wear. Besides, the matching bag is in a lion dance face shape, which adds a strong Lunar New Year vibe to it.

*Bamboo firecrackers -The ancient Chinese celebrated the New Year by burning bamboo, as the burning bamboo would make a crackling sound to dispel bad luck and misfortune.

 

 

Idea 5: Casual Lolita with Clouds Elements

Cloud elements are also commonly seen in Lunar-New-Year-themed clothing. In ancient Chinese traditional mythology, the auspicious clouds were taken by the immortals from the sky, and also had a reverence for nature.

*Auspicious Clouds - 祥云(Xiang Yuan) means Auspicious Clouds in Chinese. For China, where farming was the mainstay, clouds and rain represented the harvest, and as an ancient ornament, it kept evolving and enriching, signifying good wishes for the future.

*Wuxia - a genre of Chinese fiction and film, concerning the adventures of sword-wielding chivalrous heroes.

 

 

 

Idea 6: Rabbit Fairy From the Moon

In ancient Chinese mythology, the moon is the home of Chang'e and the Jade Rabbit, and this year is the Year of the Rabbit. Therefore choosing the right rabbit-related accessories can make a big difference to your whole look.

*Chang'e -"嫦娥", a goddess in ancient Chinese mythology. She ate the elixir of immortality and became immortal and flew to the moon, where she lived with her pet rabbit in the moon's Guang Han Palace.

The bunny ear KC and Heels that be chosen to coordinate with this outfit remind me of a goddess from ancient Chinese mythology who could bring good fortune and wealth.

 

Idea 7: "New Year Greeting" Vibe

The following outfit gives off a strong "pay a new year call" vibe. Usually, on the first day of the Lunar New Year, parents will lead their children to walk around the streets to congratulate their friends and relatives. The youngest will kowtow to the elders and the elders will return with snacks and lucky money.

As you can tell from the image below, the girl is holding two spring couplets, which means"Wishing you prosperity" and "Money and treasures will be plentiful"

*Spring couplets - Spring couplets are an important custom for the Chinese people to celebrate the Lunar New Year, with two lines of neatly matched verses, which are often used to decorate the walls of doors and send people good hopes and visions for the new year.

Spring is around the corner and strawberries would work well with Rabbit Lunar New Year.

By choosing pink bunny ear KC and pink sakura tights, we can make a good combination of red and pink.

 

Idea 8: Tweed Two-piece Set

The tweed two-piece set below is very Chinese-style.

The coat features tassels with elements such as rabbits, copper coins, and plush balls. Wearing ancient copper coins means long life, health, peace, and happiness. The exquisite embroideries on the skirt are also themed with rabbits and auspicious clouds.

* Copper Coins -  In addition to symbolizing wealth, copper coins since ancient times are still a magic weapon to avoid evil, because the ancient money in the transaction process will be passed into the hands of different people,  so the older the ancient money avoids evil the better the effect.
