Seeing Red: 5 Ways To Ring In The Lunar New Year With This Fiery Hue

Today is the official start of the Lunar New Year, and unless you’ve been holed up in a rabbit warren somewhere, you know that it’s the Year of The Rabbit. It’s a time to welcome luck into your life, forgive grudges and give (and receive) cute little red envelopes with goodies and money in them. We like. We like.

There are many ways to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit, but we don’t recommend serving up hossenfeffer and stroking your lucky rabbit’s foot as the best way to get the year started off on the right, er, foot, so to speak. Instead, we at Fashion Trends Daily recommend adorning yourself with something hot and red, the auspicious color of the Lunar New Year. Let this color command your wardrobe and your ch’i will be chic in no time!
