During Chinese New Year, red is considered to be a lucky colour, meaning “happiness, passion and luck,” which is why so many people wear it during the celebrations. One of our favourite ways to incorporate red into an outfit is with a colourful sweater – it’ll instantly elevate any look.。
We love going bold with our outerwear and what better way to make a statement than with a bright red coat. Extra points for this furry style.
Mix Your Textures
If you do want to go for a monotone look, then the key is to mix your textures. Opt for red leather pants and try a wool sweater for distinction.
Red and white
Red and white are two colours that always look good together, with white clothing acting a temper to bolder pieces.
Chinese New Year is the perfect opportunity to go bold with your accessories and what better way to do this than with some red jewels, a scarf or handbag. Opt for one vibrant piece and pair it with a neutral outfit in order to let it steal the show.
