Just because it's Chinese New Year, that doesn't mean you have to wear cheongsams, qipaos, or other traditional outfits.

Instead, you can dress up in fun and modern 'Year of the Tiger' collections that fashion brands have launched.

The best part? These pieces are wearable all year round.

And we've found great fashion pieces at all prices so you can snap up a tiger accessory and stay within your budget or splurge a little for timeless tiger pieces that are both comfortable and flattering.

From tiger handbags by Gucci to stunning tiger blouses from Mango, this list of tiger-print fashion for 2022 has everything you could want.

Tiger print shirt, $89, from Mango

If you are looking for a piece that will make you feel like a girl boss in the urban jungle, this top is perfect. The realistic black tiger print against a warm orange-gold colour is very versatile.

It can complement women with darker skin tones while standing out against lighter skin tones.

You'll love the light and flowing fabric in Singapore's heat; tuck it into your pants or wear a belt to give yourself a cinched waist.

Tiger-print midi skirt and trucker jacket, $199 and $349, from Clot x Levi's

Denim lovers, get ready to add fresh tiger-patterned pieces to your wardrobe. Clot X Levi's high-waist midi skirt with a back silt and their cropped trucker jacket with Chinese button knots elevate denim with designer details.

The slightly cropped female version of the trucker jacket comes with Chinese button knots, which is a Clot signature.

All pieces in the collection also come with specially designed co-branded shank buttons, double-layered patches, and silk back patch adorned with Clot's emblematic Silk Royale pattern.

This blue and white collaboration by the two brands is the east meet west style that we didn't know we needed.

Available exclusively in Levi's at VivoCity from Jan 14, 2022.

Tiger Graphic Technical Wool Jacquard Dress, $1650, Burberry

Even without accessories, this tiger-print polo dress is a complete outfit on its own. The tiger print features felines with bright red scarves, making it a definite eye-catcher. Just throw on a pair of shoes and you are good to go.

The dress is made from technical wool - which means this outfit is super-easy to wear. Technical wool is when wool fibres are chemically straightened to make a super smooth, super fine natural fabric knit that's cool enough for tropical weather.

The process of making technical wool is a bit like straightening or perming hair, apparently. You don't have to iron technical wool - creases just drop out. Plus, it's very smooth to the touch and does not cause the skin to itch.

Burberry also makes this same tiger pattern in a sweater ($1650) and cardigan ($1750), so there are options to choose from if a dress isn't your thing!

With hand-painted edges and polished metal hardware, this little furry Burberry bear screams 'luxury', and we want in.

A Tropical Tale handprinted silk scarf, $80, from Binary Style

It doesn't get more versatile and tropical than this silk scarf. Handprinted by local Singapore designers Binary Style, this design takes you back to early Singapore when pineapples and rubber trees filled the island (and when tigers roamed through the plantations and forests).

The scarf is larger than usual and the edges are sewn by hand. This means you can tie this fabric as a scarf, shirt, skirt, or as a hair accessory. YouTube is full of tutorials showing you new ways to tie a silk scarf if you want to look for new ways to wear this piece.

Bandana 'Wrappy' silk scarf, $290, from Fendi
