In feng shui, it is believed that every aspect of our surroundings influence our energy and wellbeing

Feng shui is rooted in ancient Chinese geomancy or natural energies, which include the elements of fire, earth, water, metal, and wood.

According to John Lok, principal consultant at Feng Shui 0011, even handbags can influence the new year.

"Their colour, how women hold them, and what goes in them can all affect your luck," Lok told Reuters. He goes on to explain that holding your handbag on the left will increase what goes inside and decrease what goes out.

Here are the meanings behind your handbag colour according to feng shui:

1. Red

Red is associated with luck, passion, and positive energy. It is the colour of intensity, fire, and auspicious Chi. If you want to stir up the energy and attract more money, go for red and choose an angular shape.

Wear it if you want: Good fortune and overall vitality.

2. Black

Black represents the water element and is associated with respect, strength, and power. Combined with a curvy shape, you can manifest more wealth. A black handbag will help you feel in charge of your money.

Wear it if you want: A sense of security and help navigating challenges.

3. Green or light blue

Yellow symbolises happiness, warmth, and positive energy, while brown represents stability, grounding, and reliability. Both are connected to the earth element.

Dark, earthy yellow and brown handbags attract financial stability and dependability, while bright, sunny yellows can attract attention and cause more movement in your finances. Square-shaped bags are best for days when you want to be approachable.

Wear it if you want: Joy for brighter tones and stability for darker tones.

6. Pink or purple
