Celebrate The Year Of The Rooster With Style

Happy Lunar New Year! 2017 is the year of the Rooster, and if you want it to be a lucky one, there are some intriguing traditions to follow, such as what colors you should wear, what you should eat and more. Plus, the fashion is fantastic! You’re supposed to wear new clothes and get a new haircut, so the holiday is a great excuse to shop!

Red For Good Fortune

Red is the good luck color that’s worn and used for decorations during the lunar new year, including the red envelopes containing gifts of money – meant to bestow happiness and joy on the recipient. So we think it might be time to bestow some happiness and joy upon yourself by splurging on something utterly fabulous in red like this Balenciaga tote with gold hardware and a Chinese-inspired knotted tassel.

The Colors Of Luck

Red is not the only auspicious hue; purple, pink, magenta, orange, and yellow are also quite favorable. These Vanessa Mooney tassel earrings are right on trend and come in yellow and pink as well as red, and this magenta Gucci scarf could be a new favorite for the new year.

Put A Rooster On It

If you want to celebrate the year by wearing or carrying something with a rooster on it, Marc Jacobs has you covered with a rooster card case. Or pick up this Michael Kors key chain for a little rooster luck.

Put Your Best Face Forward

Plenty of cosmetics brands are doing something special for the year of the rooster, but this luxe red tasseled Yves St. Laurent blush or this Giorgio Armani compact might be our favorites.

And if you were born in the year of the rooster yourself, you’re considered hardworking, observant, active, amusing and popular in a crowd; your lucky colors are gold, brown and yellow, and your lucky numbers are 5, 7 and 8.

For the rest of us, the year of the Rooster means that hard work should pay off,  and it’s also time to show off! Rooster years bring out the flamboyance in everyone, whether that means amping up your personal style or showing off the bolder facets of your personality. It’s something to think about as we start the lunar new year!
