Happy Birthday Capricorn and Aquarius!
As the new year springs into action, unfortunately your fashion sense isn’t bouncing with it. Try to be persuasive with outfits that exude confidence. Aim for clothes that fit and that have a sense of quality. It’s not too late to get a great deal on a pair of statement shoes or military jacket.
Optimistic Aquarians, you certainly have a lot in store for you this year, making your fashion output a priority. Don’t let stress damper your New Year’s spirit; instead, let your self-image do all the talking. Look for tassels on belts and hats to walk the part in 2011.
The planet of beauty brings with her an opportunity to let you shine this month. Encapsulate this foresight and stock up on clothes that will catapult your tastes for professional attire. Pisces men, rock the work front with a sleek cut suit. Pisces ladies, make your female coworkers jealous by striding around in a wool crepe dress.
While a wolf dressed in sheep’s clothing may be too harsh in describing your take on fashion this month, there is some truth behind this symbolic meaning. Until you figure out who you are [and you will] you need to work with what you’ve got. Small prints can camouflage a blight fashion insight, while a wide-collar coat can rationalize why you aren’t feeling up to the task.
You are consistent with what you carry out and for the most part deliver on your word, so make a point to do the same for your fashion this month. Embrace your makeover attitude with layers. Pair chunky sweaters with heavyweight vests or wear a bright long sleeve shirt under a faux fur gilet. Your willingness to change will pay off by month’s end.
While the focus has been on your professional aspects for a while, now is the time to let loose. Use your curiosity to come up with something stylish and fun. Try an affluent velvet jacket with a pair of skinny jeans and ankle boots or style with attitude by showing off your edgy motorcycle jacket.
Fashion ruts have a way of following you so try to hone in on the behavior before history repeats itself. Do clothes fit? Are you picking the right colors? What IS your style? These are all questions to ask before making contributions to your closet. This best thing you can do for yourself this month is to find your fashion vibe.
As the new year is ringing in, fight the urge to be compulsive with the hustle and bustle of a new style. Try fashion out first by experimenting with items you already have. Then gather items that you normally wouldn’t wear and try infusing the two together. You will be surprised with the upshot.
This month you want people to take notice of your hard work. Dazzle your audience with pieces that add subtly to your wardrobe without rocking the fashion boat. Stay away from the sheer and the bulgy. Dabble in crimson lipsticks or decorate your professional wear with trendy cufflinks.
Not in the mood for all the winter fashion hype? No problem-this year is all about accommodating how you feel and what you want to contribute to your personal style. Give justice to whatever you are feeling – quarky, rebellious, optimistic and curious can all represent the undertones you are feeling at the moment.
You have been very sensible and riding on whatever fashion wave the stars have been giving you. This new year will give you clarity, so stay dedicated and sensible to your tastes and your fashion will be rewarded. Gravitate toward styles that add spice without compromising your personal touch.
Don’t jump into the new year using your animal instincts, just yet- it will take some time to find your fashion footing. A little patience can go a long way in solidifying a new look. Look at magazines, blogs and TV for inspiration, but take time to develop your style before you begin your metamorphosis.
