On New Year's Eve, wearing something red is a tradition to start the new year with the best luck!
I'm not sure if it's true, or not, if it works or doesn't but i'm a very just-in-case-team, so here u have some options to that special day! Choose one!
In my case, I think that I'd wear the red in my underwear, accessories, shoes or bag before than in my dress, but a red dress is a very good option too!!
