These Are the Lucky Colors to Wear in 2021, According to a Feng Shui Master Plan your OOTDs for the year of the Metal Ox

After a terrifying 2020 and now the understandable anxiety of 2021, we all need a little bit of luck. “The year of the Ox will be a challenging one. It is a year that will require us to hunker down and work,” says Feng Shui Master Paul Tan Caoili. “There are no shortcuts.” Like the Ox, which is a beast of burden, we must prepare ourselves to work hard but in the end, we reap the benefits of the seeds we’ll sow this year. 

One easy way to shift negative aspects of the new year and to attract good chi to yourself is by making use of color. In general, to shift whatever negative aspects the Year of the Metal Ox brings, follow these tips to restore balance.

1. Wear a lot of metal

Since metal is such a powerful element this year, it’s time to get your Bling Empire look going! Incorporating metal into your wardrobe deflects the negative effects of too much metal in the creation of energy (or Chi) that you can harness.

“Wearing metal such as necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings will cause your energy to be more motivated and assist in releasing self-doubt,” says Master Caoili.  “Wearing metal will help correct issues that you would have regarding accepting, receiving and most importantly, self-worth.”

2. Look for stones in the four lucky colors of the year

Bring out the jewels and let them be your talisman. This year’s lucky colors are white, red, green, and yellow. So search your fave IG jewelry stores or look over your jewelry box for anything auspicious that might catch your fancy.

3. Let your birth year be your guide 

Want to take it a little further? It’s easy to personalize lucky colors further by using your Chinese birth sign as a guide. Also remember that lucky colors aren’t just for clothing — it’s for hair color, eye color, nail color—you name it. It can’t hurt to give ourselves an extra boost on the days we need it. And on the days we don’t, we can be confident that we have a little fairy dust sprinkled on us to radiate the happiness and love we feel and transfer that good Chi to others.

Pro Tip: Try not to overpower yourself by putting on clothes that are all the same color. For example, if you’re full of fire and metal elements, try to add a touch of earth to temper things and harmonize the flow. If you’re dead set on a monochromatic fire and metal look, temper it with some lucky earth colors of the year in the form of jewelry or hair and all will be fine.
