Here’s a #firstworldproblem: Splashing out on a brand new outfit for Chinese New Year, only to have your outfit ruined by the garish red paper bag commonly used to tote around oranges for CNY visitations. 

It’s not just its aesthetics that bother us — most paper bags for CNY oranges can only hold two oranges, and with heavy rainfall expected during the long CNY weekend, a flimsy paper bag just won’t do. 

So why not use this as an excuse to shop for a bag that can keep your oranges safe, with compartments you can slip your red packets into? Click through above for some chic options that are roomy enough to hold a sizeable number of oranges without looking clunky, to bring you from house to house.
