Chinese New Year is here and 2017 is the Year of the Rooster, according to the Zodiac calendar. People associated with the rooster sign are generally upbeat and energetic, known for being trustworthy, determined and reliable.
Chinese New Year is a time for food, festivity and family, but traditionally, it’s also a time for reflection and fresh starts. According to Chinese tradition, the new year marks a new beginning. That means the days before the change in calendar are spent cleaning every room in the house, to get rid of the bad luck that’s associated with dust and debris. It also means throwing away old clothes, so that bad memories from the past year don’t cling to you.
When you arrive to your New Year’s dinner, it’s often expected that you show up in new threads, symbolizing an openness to new things and an embracing of the new opportunities ahead. Like they say in all traditions, it’s out with the old and in with the new.
With that in mind, what better time than now to pick out a new outfit for yourself? Here are four suggestions to get you started.
