With every Chinese New Year we celebrate, the one thing most of us have to contend with when it comes to what to wear for two days (or more) of festive celebrations is the tradition of wearing red. The redder the better, says customs and age-old superstitions; but what if going red gives us headaches everytime we see ourselves in the mirror?
Luckily, while red is highly preferred, other jolly shades are generally acceptable as well - just as long as it isn't black - so we've picked out 12 outfits that will please your elders and distant relatives, without having to don the crimson shade.
And, just in case you get a disapproving glance your way, we've got a handy excuse for each one. You can thank us later.
