StyleScope: October 2013

Your monthly astrological guide to cosmic chic.


Aries: Use this month as a time to get out there and express yourself. To make your look feel fresh, fall for a daring new print. Attention-nabbing graphic designs are coming in all shapes and sizes this season, so it won’t be hard to find the perfect pattern to fit your unique personal style.

Taurus: You are the kind-hearted one, always caring for others and putting their needs before yours. Take a little me-time and up your style factor with that investment piece you’ve been drooling over. Whether it’s a timeless pair of knee-high boots or an amazing leather jacket, splurge this month because remember: you deserve some love, too!

Gemini: Being a recent social butterfly, it’s time to wind down and have some low-key time and R&R. An oversized knit sweater will do just the trick when sitting in front of the fireplace on a cold autumn night.

Cancer: Enjoy the first half of October as much as you can – a cosmic mid-month hiccup will put a little damper on your good times. Boost your spirits with bright colors to mimic the foliage -- reds and greens are exactly what you need to get you back on track.

Leo: It’s obvious you are a true fashionista, but instead of endlessly shopping for a new wardrobe, try mixing and matching within your own closet, boosting your existing pieces with a new statement bag. Whether you tailor well-loved essentials that you haven’t worn in a while, or simply discover new combinations that click, use your creativity to form new outfits you might never have thought of before.

Virgo: Travel and adventure are on your mind – the jet-setting life of a Virgo is never a dull moment! Start packing the right way with a large and pocket- filled tote, whether it’s traveling just a few towns away or around the world.

Libra: Venus, the planet of love, is in your sign and means more than ever this month. Nothing is more alluring than a fresh new fragrance, so invest in a scintillating new scent. Florals are ideal for flirtatious romantics, so they’re perfect for you, Libra!

Scorpio: Lucky for you, Scorpio, this season is all about channeling your inner rebel. You know you love some tough-luxe leather in your closet, so whether you feel like rocking a T-shirt, pants, gloves or a bag, shopping for a new leather piece to spice up your collection should be easier than ever right now.

Sagittarius: Embrace your inner confidence and light up every room you enter this month. Metallics are great for doing just that, so opt for a new pair of silver pumps or a bold gold statement necklace to illuminate your look.

Capricorn: Your personality leans more towards the streamlined side of things, but nobody ever said that minimalism needs to be boring. A pair of effortless black leather booties can make any outfit sleek and stylish.

Aquarius: You’ve been at a standstill for quite some time, but things are about to change… for the better! Why not welcome the positive vibes by looking and feeling your best? Some amazing new statement baubles are a great way to switch up your look without the price tag of a whole new wardrobe.

Pisces: You are back in action this month, so it’s time to match the motivated mood with some new staples. Cobalt blue is a bright, bold color that’s just right for the fall season. Go out on a style spree with this bold hue on the mind, and prepare to stand out.
