What’s your lucky colour this year?

Chinese New Year 2024 is fast approaching - in fact it kicks off this weekend, Saturday, February 10. This year ushers in the Year of the Wood Dragon, which occurs once every 60 years! 

According to tradition, one of the simplest yet most effective ways to attract positive energy into one's life is to wear a lucky color.

While Pantone's Color of the Year may be Peach Fuzz, Feng shui experts have declared that the auspicious shade for 2024 is none other than the lush and rich emerald green. Other generic colors recommended for this year are lime green and emperor yellow. These colors align with the elements of wood and earth, complementing the Dragon year. Red and white are also suggested to balance the year's energy, representing the fire and metal elements.

But is green really the luckiest of them all?

Turns out, it depends. Here are our personalized color recommendations based on their natural element and the prevailing energies of 2024:


Rat (Water): Yellow, browns, blue or black to enhance luck. Green or red is advised for career negotiations. While there are challenges ahead, you should expect and seize every opportunity that comes your way.
