What we love about Peas and Plums? All their clothes are made of natural fibers like cotton and Tencel which makes it all the more attractive especially during the long hours of visiting during Chinese New Year! Plus, they've kept their designs and prints minimalistic, which is great for those who do not like the whole fanfare of this season and want to keep things simple. Mom can also pair their indigo, ruby, or emerald mandarin collared tops with jeans or choose to jazz it up with a flowy skirt.
