Chinese New Year 2014 Outfit Ideas

The Chinese New Year is almost here and you can see it everywhere, which is no surprise since the Philippines is composed of approximately 1.5 million people with Chinese blood. In the world, China is considered the country with the largest population, so it’s just natural that the world celebrates with them in occasions like the Chinese New Year.

What’s more exciting about this event is the outfit that people wear. We often see people wearing different shades and styles of red, as it is considered to be the Chinese’s lucky color. They believe that it attracts favorable luck and fortune. However, this year’s feng shui (Chinese philosophical system) said that red is not the only lucky color this year. This is amazing news for those who are not fans of red.

According to fengshui.about.com, green and brown are also some of the lucky colors. 2014 is the year of the Wood Horse, so green and brown are great complements. For illustration purposes, I went to Lazada Philippines shopping website. Girls are usually expected to wear dresses, but if you want to be more adventurous, try wearing some pants and matching it with a nice black dressy top. According to feng shui experts, black can still bring good luck in 2014 so yay for us!

The next thing to consider are the accessories. Believe it or not, but the color of the accessories you’re wearing can also affect your luck, that is if you believe in feng shui.

Lazada is currently having a Chinese New Year sale, so I headed there to look for some affordable accessories. Crystals and stones like black onyx, pearls, moonstone, etc. are great for 2014. It’s best to avoid Metal elements like white and gray during the festivities.

So there you have it. If you feel like experimenting with your outfit this year, you can try out the suggestions above. If it doesn’t work for you, then you can always go back to red. Hope this post helped! :)
