YEAR OF THE HORSE / Lunar New Year in denim and tweed

business casual winter layering outfit
Happy Lunar New Year to all who celebrate!  May happiness, health, and prosperity and exciting adventures gallop into you and your family's life for the year 4712, year of the mighty horse!

I decided that for the Lunar New Year I should follow the tradition I have for the new year day of the Gregorian calendar and that is to start off wearing jeans.  However I realized that maybe I should have worn a red outfit, as I did last year, seeing as that color is associated with luck and prosperity.  An interesting tidbit is that the red and gold decorations that are put up for the new year is not to bring good fortune but actually serves as a means of protection against "Nian", a legendary monster who is said to hunt people (legend has it that the monster is fearful of the color red).  Since the Lunar New Year celebrations last for 15 days I have until February 14th to don a lucky outfit (or a few).
