Everyone wants to wear some bit of color in their outfit—whether it’s just a pop to give an element of fun to an ensemble or something to scream to one and all that you have arrived. But what if color could more than enhance your wardrobe? What if it could enhance your luck?
Princesse Lim Fernandez of the Yin and Yang Shop of Harmony in New World Hotel pointed out that lucky colors aren’t just for clothing, it’s for hair color, eye color, nail color—you name it. Luck can be enhanced simply to give us that extra boost on the days we need it. And on the days we don’t? Well, who doesn’t want some fairy dust sprinkled on as extra sparkle before we head on out of the door in our OOTD?
Don’t forget that when you’re using colors to enhance your luck try not to overpower yourself with only one color (Oh no, there goes our monochromatic looks!) For example, If you’re full of fire and metal elements, try to 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.
This is the year of the Dazzling Earth Pig, so show Mother what you’re made of and strut your stuff in earth tones, for those are the colors that will overpower all other colors. Lucky colors of the year are orange, coral, pink, salmon, yellow, beige, and brown; but according to Princesse, these colors only apply during days of celebration or when attending parties. For everyday wear, she advises that you wear your personal lucky colors, which are based your your birthday. Since your birthday sign does not change, your lucky colors do not differ from year to year, either. A mix of these hues plus a confident strut into the room, and you have the potential to be the luckiest girl in the world.
Pro Tip: If you want to truly personalize your colors, then you should also consider your sign during the day of your birth and your birth elements because they will affect these. There’s always two zodiac signs to consider should you want a more accurate reading: your year and day of birth because it shows a better balance of your personality and fortune.
