The Astrology of Fashion

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

I've often wondered about my attachment to my hair. Sure I've done my share of major cuts but I always return to long length, it just feels right even though I can't put my finger on why. Turns out my sign may have something to do with it, after all, lions love their mane...check out these fashion horoscopes from Chris Petrakos and tell me, do you feel yours is accurate reflection of your fashion choices?

Aries: Red is a natural color for Aries and you'll often see it turn up in an accessory. As it rules the head, Aries inclines towards hats or scarves. There's often a bit of flair in Aries, not overdone, but as an accent.

Taurus: Much like the sign itself, Taureans like clothing that is comfortable. Earth colors often predominate here and there's not a lot of interest in fads. Look for materials that have a strong tactile quality like wools or corduroy. As Taurus rules the throat, necklaces, chokers and so on can be prominent.

Gemini: There can be a lot of variety here and some great creative mismatching of styles. The closet is filled with a lot of different things, reflecting the Gemini impulse for versatility. Hands are ruled by this sign, so you might see a lot of rings or bracelets.

Cancer: Soft colors are often used by Cancerians, particularly white or silver. There's a pretty quality to their dress, often with a touch of vintage. Nothing real harsh or surprising. You'll see very comfortable fabrics such as flannel or velour.

Leo: Look for some drama here, something that makes an impact. Closets may be filled as well the jewelry boxes. Leos like to stand out, so you'll probably see some gold. In the extreme cases, the hair is like a mane - you know, like lions.

Virgo: The fashion here is very "put together," with strong attention to detail. Nothing real flashy, rather clothing will be more tailored, a bit conservative, often with an emphasis on the color blue. Like Taurus, nothing faddish.

Libra: Strong fashion instincts here. Librans are aware of the latest trends and know how to use them in a way that is tasteful and stylish without screaming 'I'm wearing the latest.' Very tasteful with jewelry, knows how to accent almost anything.

Scorpio: There's a lot of imagination here, but the range is typically small. Black is often a key color, but it's not a depressive black, more of a mysterious, suggestive one, if you know what I mean. One Scorpion client wears nothing but black jeans, but is always changing the tops in interesting ways.

Sagittarius: Their independence often shows up in their dress, which is casual and may include a lot of jeans. You sometimes see purple here as well as orange or yellow. The emphasis is on comfort but the look is fresh.

Capricorn: Muted colors - tan, grey, dark blue - are often present and the clothing is pretty classic. There's a certain formality to Capricorn's dress even when the look is casual. Nothing funky or garish here.

Aquarius: Typically very original and fashion-conscious. Something stylish and unique in the way of dressing that is more cool than quirky. The true Aquarius has a gift for putting outfits together than nobody else would think of but look perfectly natural on them.

Pisces: On women, you'll generally see more skirts than pants and you'll notice that shoes play a key role. In their clothing and jewelry, the colors and hues of the ocean are often giveaways. There's also a wide range of textures, from silk to wool.

P.S. The picture above is a constellation embroidery kit available on Etsy, isn't it cute?


  1. I'm a Libra and I think it's pretty accurate. Well, I'm HOPING it is ; )

  2. Hmm...well, my closet is full of variety and I do like to creatively mismatch but I don't wear a lot of bracelets or rings, ha ha! This is fun though.

  3. This is so fun, and yes mine is totally on the money! My closet is almost all blue, as is my husband's, laundry day is pretty hilarious: a load of white, a load of reds, and three loads of blue/green =)

    And I know what you mean about long hair, I am super attached to mine too even though I have done bobs and all out short hair on occasion. I think it is because when I picture myself in my mind I always have long hair. Even if my hair is in a bob at that moment, I'm unable to make a mental picture of myself without long hair. Weird, eh?

  4. That embroidery kit is so cute! I actually see a bit of myself in almost all the signs. How funny.

  5. Being an Aquarius I think it's pretty true of me; although, I'm not so sure I'm necessarily great at pulling off outfits others wouldn't put together. But maybe others think differently.

  6. How interesting! The Capricorn part for me is half right.

  7. HA-no wonder I love my long hair and gold jewelry! Such a great post!

  8. Mine isn't super right. Taurus. I would agree that I don't really care about fads, just more of what I like, the other stuff, not so much. :-(

  9. I loved this post! So fun and mine was true, too!

  10. Gemini is so accurate for me. That explains my closet and love of rings/bracelets. Great post.

  11. Huh...I'm a Virgo and I think that's pretty accurate. I just cut my hair and now I want it long again. So indecisive!

  12. I actually agree with this Aquarius fashion horoscope.:D
