Whether you believe in feng shui or not, you've got to admit that the idea to wear specific colors on New Year's Eve in order to attract good luck is at least fun. According to the Chinese zodiac, 2017 is the year of the Fire Rooster. To be in harmony with the energy of the year and befriend the Fiery Rooster, celebrate the New Year in gold, brown or yellow colors.
Outfit ideas for wearing Gold on New Year's Eve
The color gold means completeness and wealth. It is also associated with abundance, prosperity and luxury. Want to attract money in 2017? Wear an oufit in bronze or accessorize with gold. Although rocking gold sparkles to a New Year's Eve party is nothing new, it is a time-tested and fail-safe outfit option. Befriend the ruling Fiery Rooster energy (and look stunning while doing so) in a metallic gown or a sequinned romper.
Brown symbolises stability, security and comfort. Want more stability in your life in 2017? Why not celebrate the New Year in an elegant maxi dress in chocolate or a dark brown suede dress for an on-trend look? Granted, brown is not the most festive color, but this may be exactly why you will stand out if you wear cognac, camel or other shade of brown to a New Year party.
Yellow is the absolute color of happiness and warmth. It is also associated with the sun, power, activity and abundance. It carries the energy of the fire feng shui element in a gentler way than red and purple. Yellow is also a color that can express two elements depending on its intensity. A rich, bright shade of yellow brings the feng shui Fire element, while a pale yellow represents the Earth feng shui element. As 2017 is the year of the Fire Rooster, go for an outfit in saturated, fiery yellow.
The best part is that you can always celebrate the New Year twice. As you know, the Chinese New Year starts on a different day each year. In 2017, the New Year, the Fire Rooster Year, starts on January 28. This gives you another chance to wear the Fire Rooster's lucky colors and attract all manners of luck and success in 2017.
