It is traditional to wear new clothes in red and gold for the Chinese New Year celebration to honor the birth of fresh, new energy, and to symbolize a new beginning for the new year. If you want to support and nourish your energy, you can wear specific colors based on your personal birth element. If you don't know what your Chinese Zodiac sign and Ba Zi element is, you should check out my previous post here. Since I'm a weak yin Earth Tiger, my favorable elements are Fire (red) and Earth (yellow). That's why I've decided to wear a red cheongsam to welcome the year of the Wood Horse!
So, what are you going to wear on Chinese New Year?
