2015 is here, and with it the eternal dilemma – what to wear for evening events?
According to the Chinese calendar, each year is symbolized by an animal of a different color. 2014 was, for example, the year of the horse, and 2015 is the year of the blue goat (or, as some call it, the sheep). The Chinese tradition says that in order to please the animal, one must greet the New Year wearing a color that matches it. This, of course, is done so you can have a better and a more successful year.
If it could help a little, why not put an effort, even if it’s the Chinese tradition…
So you already know that according to the Chinese, this year’s color is blue-turquoise, so if you’re going to a party, a private event, or maybe a romantic date, I’ll try to help you find a look that will transform any party in 2015 into a festive, sparkly event and you – into a creative fashionista.
These are my three recommendations for the New Year Eve or, for any festive evenings this year:-)
- Wear something blue or turquoise.
2. You don’t have to buy something especially. If you don’t have an item in this color, you can always add the ‘right’ accessories– a scarf, a bracelet or another decoration. Some sparkle adds festive atmosphere, which suits this evening so well.
3. You can combine the blue with a number of colors – classic black, white (but careful not to look like you’re off to celebrate Israel’s Independence Day). I love pairing the colder blue with warm colors such as beige and skin tones.
Following my own instructions, I searched my closet and after a moment of doubt, this is what I came up with:
This asymmetrical shirt is made from dark-blue sequins, and the fluffy skirt is shiny beige silk. Royal blue suede shoes add sex-appeal, and a small evening bag, gold and silver, is another classy touch. Oh, and, of course, red lipstick – a must add-on with this muted look, but the nails can be blue. If you want to please the goat, why not go all out! I did the blue manicure after taking the pictures above; I think it’s pretty special.
Additionally, I compiled a similar look on Polivore. Just to remind you, you can click on the items to find out their price and order them from an online store if you like.
I hope I helped a little – Happy New Year! I wish us all a good, calm and peaceful year – just like the Chinese promise – and filled with joy and success like we all want.
Happy New Year!!!
