‘Huat’ Shoes to Wear for Chinese New Year 2020

It’s that time of the year again when you stuff yourself with pineapple tarts, dodge relatives’ questions about your love life, and generally enjoy Chinese New Year festivities!

As you warm up to give or receive all those ang baos, remember that you’ll need to be prepared for long days of moving from one place to another.

Most people fuss over what new outfit they’re going to wear, but miss out on their choice of footwear. Don’t make this mistake and step into the new year feeling FAB with these trendy but comfy slip-on picks!


While flats generally have a more casual vibe, that doesn’t necessarily translate to being under-dressed or worse – boring. This season’s best features interesting textures and patterns that make it a dreamy match to your visitation outfit.

Pedro, Pleats Embellished Strappy Sandals

Pleats were a huge trend in 2019 that will be crossing over to 2020. So, don’t stop at just pleated skirts or dresses, have them beautifully adorning your feet with this classy pair from Pedro that features black satin pleats.

DMK, Cut It Out Lasered Sandals in Mint

If black is too strong a contrast to your outfit’s festive colours, go for something more low-key complementary with these strappy sandals from DMK. The laser-cut design on the second strap gives is a feminine yet edgy touch.

Charles & Keith, Metallic Strappy Slingback Heels

For an effortlessly sexy vibe, this pair of metallic sling-back sandals from Charles & Keith is a dream-come-true. The silver colour makes it quite versatile and a good match to most of this season’s trending colours (reds, blues, and golds).

Aldo, Deladriewiel in Animal Print

Step into the wild side with these gorgeous slip-ons from Aldo! Luckily, your choice of footwear shouldn’t have to depend on your Chinese zodiac, so go ahead and have fun with animal-prints on your choice of shoes!


If you’re the kind who just needs to be in heels for the extra fashion flair or if you just want a bit of added height, don’t fret cause there are a few sensible heels out in stores recently! Instead of going for thin kitten heels, try block heels that give you more support, thereby enabling you to last through a few days (and kilometres) of visiting this Chinese New Year.

Charles & Keith, Tri-Strap Mules in Multi-Colour

Pastels are a sure hit any time of the year! This tri-strap, multi-colour mules from Charles & Keith are such amazing dupes of some designer sandals that have been stomping down the runways for the upcoming spring season. It’s a perfect match to your floral ensemble!

Pazzion, Nude Studded Slide Sandals

For those who are no strangers to designer signature styles, you’ll know exactly what this pair was inspired from! These show-stopping slip-ons from Pazzion look elegant and expensive – without the hefty price tag. Hopefully, the gold studs will bring you more luck, too!

With this FAB selection, you’ll only have to worry about how much food you’re going to eat and how much money you’ll hopefully get this Chinese New Year! GONG XI FA CAI!
