Personality: Patient, sociable, practical, compassionate
Lucky colour: Green
How to style your lucky colour: Lucky for you, shades of green continue to be one of the most popular colours in fashion.

If you like to go bold, jewel-toned greens are a great way to add a statement to your CNY outfits this year.
Personality: Sensitive, introspective, empathetic, artistic
Lucky colour: Blue and Black
How to style your lucky colour: For the people born during the Water years, blue and black might already be one of your go-to colours in your wardrobe. This CNY, jazz it up by trying new ways of styling these two staple colours, such as textures and abstract prints that will showcase your moody, artistic side.
Personality: Unyielding, loyal, disciplined, ambitious
Lucky colour: White
How to style your lucky colour: With white as your lucky colour, it’s no wonder that you’re known to others as an ice queen! Instead of stark whites, soften the rigidity of your personality through warmer shades like cream and egg shell. Alternatively, use your lucky colour as a blank canvas, and sprinkle on more colour through prints and accessories!
Personality: Peaceful, just, giving, calm
Lucky colour: Yellow and Brown
How to style your lucky colour: Yellow, known to be one of the luckiest colours in Chinese tradition, is loved for its symbolism of prestige and prosperity. Coupled with the grounded shades of brown, these two colours make up a power duo for you this year. Both colours come with great versatility in your wardrobe – you can easily style up with saturated sunny yellows, or take it down a notch with a minimalistic beige.
Personality: Creative, passionate, spontaneous, adventurous
Lucky colour: Red
How to style your lucky colour: Oh, red, the colour associated with joy, luck and celebration! For the big and bold, try colour-blocking fiery red tones together for a fierce statement look. If you’re not a fan of flashy top-to-toe red, we suggest bending the rules a little with soft blush pinks, or adding a bold splash of red as an accent to your neutral outfits!
