The most ‘huat’ celeb OOTDs this year

Earlier this week, you saw the shenanigans local celebs got up to this Chinese New Year, now get a peek at the huat-worthy (or not) outfits they donned during the festive season. Some of our favourites include Chua Enlai’s pineapple print shirt which is 100 per cent CNY appropriate and calorie-free, Rui En’s casual tank with shoulder cut outs that give her hands the freedom they need for some serious lo hei action, Rebecca Lim’s very lust-worthy Chanel top, Tong Bingyu's sexy bold jumpsuit, and Hong Ling and Nick Teo's traditional CNY outfits. Read on for more!

Zoe’s outfit by Fendi, looks boardroom ready on top and dance floor ready at the bottom. We’re positive its vivid red hue creates an energetic mood wherever Zoe goes.

Huat or not? Huat, especially with Zhu Bao Bao in tow!

Cute couple alert! For this year’s celebration, these lovebirds favour a more traditional CNY dress code and they’re nailing it!

Huat or not? Double the huat for these lovebirds

With its striking fuchsia pink hue and keyhole detail, this Diane von Furstenberg jumpsuit will definitely make Bingyu stand out among the crowd.

Huat or not? Huat, of course!

Fann's colourblock two-piece is minimalist-chic at its best and also very food baby-friendly. Yay more room for bak kwa

Huat or not? Huat ah!

Rui En isn’t going to let her outfit stop her from her lo hei. That’s why she’s cleverly picked a relaxed fit tank with shoulder cut outs that allow her to move freely when tossing the yu sheng.

Huat or not? You bet.

Chua Enlai

Every year, our waistlines are in great danger whenever CNY rolls around because of all the delicious snacks. En Lai has the perfect solution - instead of sinking his teeth into them, he’s decided to wear them (how adorable!). Best of all, these fruity prints are entirely calorie-free.

Huat or not? Super huat!

While we’re loving Bonnie’s girlish two-piece ensemble, we’re not entirely sure of her hairdo which didn’t complement her girl-next-door vibes. Is it a bad hair day or curl gone wrong? You decide. 

Huat or not? Huat for the outfit, not so much for the hair.

We would have preferred if one of them turned up as the Red Ranger, but we’ll give this trio points for looking extra handsome when executing their wushu poses during their performance at River Hongbao.

If Fang Rong’s printed dress could speak, it would probably say, “Go bold or go home.” And we most certainly agree.

Conservative parents, aunties and uncles will probably frown at Denise’s monochrome style this CNY season.

Huat or not? Not totally huat because of the lack of colour

For guys who own mostly black clothings, try JJ’s simple styling trick for a refreshed look. Here, he pairs his T-shirt and trousers with a red trucker cap and jacket, adding a jolt of colour to his outfit.

Huat or not? Huat and swagalicious

We can’t think of any reasons not to shop Constane’s maxi dress from Love Bonito. It  looks especially elegant and lovely on the Crazy Rich Asians actress.

Ying Ying’s mismatched ensemble includes many attention grabbers such as a ruffle top, sparkly skirt, bold red bag and chunky heels. We’re getting a headache just by looking at it.

Rebecca looks splendid in this head to toe Chanel ensemble. Her Chanel logo top is also worth a spot on your lust-have list.

If you feel that the weather’s too hot to handle this CNY, you’re not alone because Tosh probably feels the same too. It’s no surprise then that he’s decided to ditch his clothes and go shirtless.

Huat or not? Too huat to handle!

Who says high slits only work on runways and red carpets? Here, Kimberly flaunts her thigh in this two-piece number like a pro.

Biren jie’s floral red dress looks especially festive and feminine. Its flowing silhouette also means she’ll have no worries in reaching for a second or third serving of bak kwa during her CNY visits.

Huat or not? Huat!

"All about the Dragon Horse Spirit. 龙马精神!" wrote Joel. Sorry dude, but your Hawaiian-inspired shirt looks more beach ready than CNY ready.

 

Huat or not? Huat, but only in spirit.

Judging from Shane’s Instagram feed, we’re pretty sure he’s got an impressive wardrobe. Sadly, this plain outfit which looks more like a secondary school uniform pales in comparison to the rest of his stylish clothes.

Huat or not? Meh

Few stars are adventurous when it comes to experimenting with fashion. Looking at Kelly’s Instagram feed, she’s definitely one of them. We’re in love with her streetstyle star worthy outfit here which features clashing prints and patterns. She’s also ditched stilettos for sneakers, a smart move for CNY visiting.

Mark’s eye-catching printed shirt is extremely wearable in Singapore. Pair it with pants, shorts or jeans, the choice is entirely yours, guys.

Despite looking extremely appropriate for CNY, Hazelle’s play-it-safe red dress is anything but conversation-starting.

Kewei’s pretty pink pleated dress by Klarra looks lightweight and comfy enough for a full day of CNY visits. 

Huat or not? You can't go wrong with pink but little Shen Momo stole the show with his red and gold chinoiserie outfit.

Jade’s dress from Pomelo Fashion gives the traditional qipao a fresh spin by adding a wrap design and peplum hemline.

Did Dennis mix up his dates? It certainly feels like Halloween has come early for him as he dons a bumble bee costume for Channel 8's countdown show.

We’re sure Sonia’s bold slip dress, complete with a plunging neckline and back-bearing details, is a conversation-starter at her CNY reunions.

Huat or not? Super huat!

Instead of picking a plain shirt to layer over his T-shirt and pants combo, James has chosen a more statement making option that features interlocking gold chain motifs. And he looks great in it!

Kimberly takes on Singapore’s sweltering weather by keeping herself cool in this one-shoulder tropical print dress.

Sure, the gigantic Mickey illustration on this jumper dress looks cute on Candyce but we’re not digging this look. It’s a tad too short, making Candyce look like she’s left her house without any bottom.

To make tone-on-tone dressing standout even more, go ahead and try different accessories. Michelle’s printed neckerchief, shoulder bag and nude booties complement her outfit in a sophisticated, grown-up way.

Not all prints are created equal. The apple prints on Yasminne’s qipao, for example, might look adorable…but only if they were printed on a dining table mat.

Huat or not? Sorry Yaz, but we think Hershey's huat-worthy cheongsam is more on point.

Yellow can be a tricky colour to wear but this dress, contrasted by red and green floral prints, looks ultra feminine and date night appropriate on Carrie.

A team that dresses alike, stays tight - right? Anyway, this group photo is also proof that bold prints can work across all shapes and ages.
