Happy Birthday Sagittarius and Capricorn!
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Your birthday month brings a time of reflection and the focus really becomes you. It’s all about what you like and how you see yourself for who you really are in fashion this month, dear Sags. Wear what feels comfortable- more importantly, wear what fits your mood. Ultimately, it’s your personality that will be filling in the fashion gaps.
Capricorn (December 22- January 20)
Unexpected social events are coming your way, so be prepared! Keep an open mind with holiday attire- women would look good in vintage cocktail dresses and guys in a lightweight wool tuxedo with pleated trousers to match. If all else fails have a blazer or a little black dress on reserve – this is your month to shine, so there can be no lapse in style.
Aquarius (January 21- February 19)
You’ve had plenty of time to experiment with what works and doesn’t lately. This month it’s time to put what you’ve learned to the test. Try creating a mod look by adding a wide belt to a solid color outfit or bring out your new artistry look with a pair of affliction jeans. Use your newfound insight and seek to be envied!
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
Professionalism tops your to-do list this month and dressing the part is vital to getting ahead where it counts. Use your cleverness to mix and match your attire. Ladies, different colored camisoles can be worn under solid-colored blazers. Guys blue suits can accommodate yellow and tan shirts while brown suits match well with blue, white and maroon ones. If you want to add a classy touch do so with a pop of a colorful scarf or a snazzy tie.
Aries (March 21- April 20)
Your need for the spotlight will be extra conspicuous this month, so give off the impression that you want to be noticed. Be blunt with a different shade of locks or make a statement in a fedora felt hat. Your craving for change will take you through the rest of the month, so find savvy ways to bring your wardrobe up to date.
Taurus (April 21- May 21)
So while you were able to float by on your stamina and your realistic influences in the style department last month, this month won’t be as forgiving. Too bad, because funds will be depleted, leaving you with having to negotiate good looks on a budget. No fear, places likeCrossroads Trading Co., H & M and the online Bag, Borrow, or Steal, Inc. has got your back.
Gemini (May 22- June 21)
Since Geminis don’t need to gain confidence from their clothing, keeping style straightforward this month will be the only thing you need to do to show off your brilliance in the wardrobe department. Nonchalance can come in pastel colors, spangled sequins or studded innuendos. Whatever style you chose this month the key is to keep true to your tone.
Cancer (June 22-July 22
When times get busy you are quick to fall back on your customary one-tone attire. This month amuse your passion for purpose by infusing bouts of color. Mutations of gray, amethyst, and taupe can go a long way in making an impression. If you really want to make a statement, try wearing vivid-colored shoes, belts or handbags to flare your fashion.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Being dignified will keep you headstrong in the workplace this month but unfortunately will leave you no time or energy for your wardrobe. Keep it happy-go-lucky with effective dressing- grab for the hassle-free cardigans and crinkle-free slacks to make your mornings go. Travel with shoes that slip on and oversized totes that can hold everything.
Virgo (August 23- September 22)
Relationships are getting full attention this month so dressing to impress may be something of interest to you. Dump the sensible lines and integrate the flirty wear. Ladies, let the low V-necks and flirty long necklaces out this month and don’t be afraid to wear red pumps with your skinny jeans. Virgo guys, flirt your fashion with jeans, blazer and a tie.
Libra (September 23- October 22)
Budding confidence does amazing things for your look this month so you’ll need to make an investment to keep up with your inner strife. Don’t break the bank with new threads–instead, invest in a standout piece. Libra gals, a ruffled peacoat can transform a dull outfit into a fab one. Libra guys, band jackets are perfect standout pieces that go well with graphic tees and torn jeans.
Scorpio (October 23- November 21)
You are up for new challenges this month and with these new challenges come a new look. Decide if you want to be mod, urban, preppy or eclectic and then fashion accordingly. Urbanites like the retro look and are the ones carrying messenger bags. The eclectics on the other hand are in vintage-wear and are the ones who pride themselves on uniqueness. Be playful with what you chose and come up with a style all your own.
