Wear a red dress for Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year, or spring festival begins on January 31. As the year of the horse looms on the horizon, it's time to finish up old business, tidy up, reorganize your closet and your life! Are you ready to celebrate the Spring Festival? If so, put one of thesered dresses to send your wishes of health, wealth and happiness!

A keyhole neckline and gentle gathers spread good cheer in this red sleeveless dress. The keyhole motif repeats itself at the back neck, which has to be auspicious! Tiny beads embellish the empire waistline. The full skirt and rich red are a great choice for parties and family celebrations. Think of the fun ways to style this dress for Chinese New Year!

Stitched sequins create a scalloped motif on a white background, which contrasts nicely on this red high low dress . Who can resist a strapless dress for all of its styling options? The sheer fabric flutters in the high low skirt reminding me of the lion dance you see at Chinese New Year parades. This is a great red party dress!

Even I can get motivated to tidy up if I know this one shoulder dress awaits me at the end of the work! The asymmetrical flounce captures a rising fashion trend. While you can't see it in this photo, there's a nice beaded brooch that sparkles at the shoulder. Here's a sophisticated party dress that attracts good luck.

Flowers are an important aspect in Chinese symbolism, so I had to include this red dress with a floral laceoverlay. While this is a semi formal dress, for sure, I could think of many opportunities to wear this classic party dress.

With Valentine's day not long after Chinese New Year, these red dresses are an irresistible selection. Which one would you choose?
