Happy Birthday Leo & Virgo!
(July 23-August 22)
Romance sizzles for you this month so you should have no problem sharing your feelings with the one you’re with. Lionesses, spice things up with lingerie as outerwear and use your courage to flaunt a flirty lace top. Leons, you can’t go wrong with romance by enticing your flame with a classic oxford shirt. You will find that your ambitious character will allow your personality to shine through no matter what button hems you decide to wear.
(August 23-September 22)
Transition is key for you this month, Virgo, and nothing accommodates your systematic and methodical personality like a good plan. Creating a new persona can be easy as planning who you want to be, but first, you have to take inventory of what you have in your closet. Use the extra self-assurance bestowed upon you this month to try as many looks as possible- what you decide in fashion this month will carry you on through the next year.
(September 23-October 22)
Harmony and peace are falling back into place for you this month, which will give you a new found confidence boost. Harness this energy into wearing something classic, like the dress pants you already have in your closet. Add a novel outlook to your classic ideology by adding a crushed red velvet top or a plaid button-down shirt. Your symbolic outlook on life will show through your fashion this month, so let nostalgia take its course.
(October 23-November 21)
Certain people in your life are still making life a little difficult for you this month, but you will have plenty of social encounters to offset these little annoyances. Take advantage of all social opportunities that present themselves to you even if they run into other engagements. To tackle this feat, try wearing pieces that come in parts. Ladies, a jacket can easily be removed to reveal a halter dress that accentuates your toned shoulders. Guys, you can transition from work to play by throwing on a sports jacket or adding statement pieces like sunglasses or a watch.
(November 22-December 21)
Your irresponsibility in your finances will show this month, as funds set aside for fun may be lower than usual. Your flare for optimism will not hinder your enthusiasm though, and you will be able to draw the energy you need from your home life. Show more assertive behavior by pulling out your best threads: your chances of landing the part are better if you start playing the part.
(December 22-January 20)
Different aspects of your life are playing tug of war, and to be honest, you’re not really sure where to focus your energy. Something or someone new will pop up to help your situation, so you will want to be ready to make a good first impression. Goat guys, good impressions can start at trimming your facial hair and can work down to a presentable pair of shoes. Capricornian women, dress to impress by dressing appropriately for the occasion and not showing too much skin.
(January 21-February 19)
Your plate is full this month Aquarius, however, what makes this month better than last is that you can finally start sorting through the mess. With this opportunity comes new progress and developments and what better to prepare for them with a complete fashion makeover. It’s in your nature to make it a slow and shaky start, but once you find out who you want to be, everything should fall into place.
(February 20-March 20)
New and exciting things are in store for you this month, you fishes! ‘Out with the old and in with the new’ shall be your mantra and perhaps a new haircut can be just the thing you need to stay on top of your fashion game. Guys, put a new twist on the schoolboy look by tinting your locks. Gals, try a lustrous 40’s look by playing with waves and curls. Let your open-mindedness towards your fashion sense go wild.
(March 21- April 20)
Last month was a woozy, but there is no way that you are going to let last month’s battles be this month’s battles. Maintain equilibrium by bringing balance and fun to your wardrobe. Ladies, use your courageous nature to try a new look. Try wearing jeans with flare or work in animal prints. Ram guys, bring out your playful nature by sporting street or retro fashion.
(April 21- May 21)
Projects and work may be taking most of your energy this month so focus on the things that matter most in your personal life. Toning down your fashion may allow your energy to focus where it is needed most. Try to keep it simple by wearing outfits that make you feel comfortable and confident and choose only one or two statement pieces at a time.
(May 22- June 21)
As stress targets your social life this month, you may be itching to express yourself creatively. Curious thoughts come to you naturally so coming up with stylish ensembles shouldn’t be a problem for you. Gemini guys, make a bold statement by investing in next season’s fitted cargo pants. Gemini ladies, celebrate your professional success and kick your style into gear by treating yourself to some cocktail rings, they are sure to get some creative points!
(June 22- July 22)
Cancer, you are struggling with balance this month so don’t do anything dramatic with your wardrobe. This is not the time for you to try something new, so do not scout out fashion opportunities. Guys, you can find comfort in wearing last season’s goth ninja or deep V-neck cardigans for this upcoming season. Cancer ladies don’t be afraid to work in your over-the-knee boots into your wardrobe. Your love for the spotlight will have to be tamed in other ways.
