Nothing says ‘China’ like the combo of red, black, and gold. A red pump adds modernity to a traditional kimono jacket, and the touch of gold makes this outfit perfect for a night out.

If you’d rather be in a Japanese garden than out celebrating Year of the Dragon, go Zen with cool colors and white. This approach to mixing prints works since it is all in the same color scheme and the prints are relatively the same scale.
(Trénde Fémme earrings $38 and hairpins $25, J.Crew belt $8, Maripe heels $22, Alyn Paige dress $18, Made in Hong Kong kimono $36)
This spring, we’re loving a traditional-meets-contemporary style. The delicate floral embroidery (you should see the back!) and sheen of the white satin softens the bold, modern bands of green. The look is bright, yet serene.
(Coral necklace $18, gold leaf earrings $8, belt $8, size 7 Yves Saint Laurent mules $110, Riller & Fount dress $22, Custo Barcelona cardigan $58)
When the cold weather inevitably returns, you can still be inspired by oriental style. Take the colors from the changing leaves to create a rich and earthy ensemble. Draped outerwear resembles the Kimono shape but is so cozy!
Let the Asian Invasion begin!

Want to go further with this trend? Find your perfect piece from an upcoming Asian designer like Alexander Wang. Young designers like Wang seem to have a very structured take on style, and their interpretation of Asian fashion. How would you combine the two elements?
