The 2016 Chinese New Year may be right around the corner but there is still some more time to find the perfect dress to wear as you start the New Year.
The Chinese New Year is known as the most important and the longest holiday (15 days) in China. It is also considered as the start of the spring season as it is also the first day of the lunar calendar, thus being called Lunar New Year. As a tradition, each member of the family starts the New Year with new clothes from head to toe while doing a lot of different activities.

It is usually made out of silk and is embroidered with different kinds of decorations such as pearls or sequins.
