Lucky colour: Red
Red is already an easy colour to pull off for most of us, so Ox mummies don’t have to worry about how they’re going to wear this colour. If bright red isn’t your cup of tea though, try on a red swipe of lipstick instead.

Lucky colour: Pink
Pink is a great colour, but for some, pink can be a little too sweet or feminine for their liking. If you’re agreeing to that statement, then consider rose gold jewellery instead. They tick off the pink box, and they still add some elegance and glamour to your look without you looking too saccharine and sweet.
