5 Auspicious Colours To Rock This CNY That Aren’t Red

5 Auspicious Colours To Rock This CNY That Aren’t Red

We may have just put 2018’s festivities behind us, but we’re already shaking off these post-holiday blues because it’s almost time for Chinese New Year!

To get you in the CNY spirit, we’ve started hunting for some fresh new hues you can sport at your next get together. So step away from the red, and find out which auspicious colours you could be flaunting this festive season, and where to shop them for the best deals!

Pink

The softer sibling to our usual scarlet red, pink is the perfect fun and feminine alternative to shop this Lunar New Year. A piece we’re eyeing this season is this quilted purse from Furla that’s both delicate and daring. The gold chain adds a touch of edge that makes this otherwise retro-inspired piece a super chic accessory for the new year. We also love the idea of a pair of smart salmon pink trousers that can be worn for all occasions, all year round!

Auspicious for: Ox, Rabbit, Rooster.

Green

1. Shop | 2. Shop | 3. Shop

Green is getting big this year, especially with celebrities like Kendall Jenner donning it in daring neon hues. This Chinese New Year, however, we’re opting for deeper and earthier greens that will go great with a pair of jeans, and make your gold accessories pop! Throwing on a micro bag is another fun and uber trendy way to work green into your outfit this year, and in this instance, brighter is definitely better!

Auspicious for: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Snake, Rooster.

Yellow

1. Shop | 2. Shop | 3. Shop

Yellow got some major love on the 2019 Spring/Summer runways at New York Fashion Week, and we can’t wait to jump on the bandwagon. Double up on your trends this season by working these warm tones into this season’s top picks such as the bucket bag, or an effortlessly cool mixed print skirt! If keeping colours minimal is more your style, you can always opt for a more subtle accessory like these simple yellow sunglasses.

Auspicious for: Rat, Rabbit, Snake, Monkey, Dog, Pig.

Silver

1. Shop | 2. Shop | 3. Shop

Now I know gold is a CNY staple, but silver is a major contender this year as well! From holographic to heavy metal, we love the idea of playing with the different styles of silver. If you’re in for a more formal banquet style dinner, this sequin romper is the perfect combination of style and comfort to get you through those multi-course meals!

Auspicious for: Horse.

Blue

1. Shop | 2. Shop | 3. Shop

Picking the right shade of blue for Chinese New Year can be a tricky thing, so be sure to go for rich royal blues like we did. A trend we can’t wait to jump in this season has to be the architectural heel–fancy, we know but we love this pair of slingbacks from Yull Yie that we’re already pairing with everything. If you’d like to keep your outfit a touch more casual, you could also opt for a classic midi or the versatile staple every girl should have–a trusty jumpsuit!

Auspicious for: Dragon, Goat, Monkey, Dog.
