The Colour of Happiness
5 ways to work red into your outfits

Friday, February 5, 2016

Red is the colour of the Chinese Lunar New Year and also the colour of happiness. And so, with the long CNY weekend upon us, here are 5 ways to work red into your outfits from the likes of Victoria Beckham, Theory, Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen, Paula Cademartori, Sonia Rykiel, Anton Heunis, and Thakoon!
A red packet symbolises good luck and like an accompaniment to all things of the Chinese Lunar New Year, to wear a red accessory is the least you can do to keep within the theme.

This calls for an exquisite red gemstone to accent your outfit. Aside from rubies and pink sapphires, we’re in love with red coral – the most sought-after shade of coral. It is a gem of passion, optimism, and inner peace. In other words, a good luck charm to wear now and forever!
Are you wary of going overboard with red this year? Fret not and wear pink! It is after all a shade of red. The sweeter side red, if you will.

Show off that pure feminine energy and wear head-to-toe pink. We’re looking at this silky combo of blush pink separates from Theory. Pajama-chic is definitely in trend this year and this outfit is the closest you will get to actually wearing your pajamas out. It’s time to take a much-needed break this holiday!
Red signifies joy, an immense happiness that brings about contentment. A red bag is a carrier of joy. A conversation-starter, this well-crafted Paula Cademartori tote bag is quite the companion to take with you on your house visits.

Strictly all-Italian made, this bag features ornate printed leather, a rarity in traditional handbags. With such exuberance, match it with a simple outfit and let the bag do all the talking. Your year, this year shall be as vibrant as this bag!
Red goes easily with black or white, or any other neutral colour for that matter. Throw on a moderate amount of red and wear it subtly. This multi-coloured floral printed Thakoon top is just what we need.

For an easy match, pick a colour from the print to pair it with. For a healthy dose of freshness, pick a flared midi skirt and yet another red bag. Cropped at the top and slightly flared at the bottom, this silhouette is not only chic but also oh-so flattering.
In love or in life, red unwittingly gives us the courage and strength to walk with faith. As you welcome the Chinese Lunar New Year, walk on in a pair of red shoes like this Sonia Rykiel espadrille wedges. At just about the most comfortable height, your feet will be thanking you after a heavy day of walking.

Amp up the vim and vigour on top as well and pick out a strong bag together with a stylish top. Against a white base, you can’t go wrong!
