StyleScope: January 2014

Your monthly astrological guide to cosmic chic.

ARIES: You are exuding newfound confidence these days, so it’s time to forgo your simple, streamlined wardrobe staples and give yourself a luxuriously decadent upgrade in the form of a fanciful feathered skirt or luxe faux fur vest.

TAURUS: Rather than splurging at the moment, tighten those purse strings and take advantage of all the stellar sales going on right now. Shop wisely and don’t fret -- as the year progresses, you will be able to indulge all your fabulous urges once again!

GEMINI: Jupiter, the planet of abundance, is in your chart through the rest of winter, so take advantage with a mini-spree. Highlight your super-sparkling personality with rich gemstone hues, whether it be shoes, a new dress – or both! And be prepared to dazzle while you attract everything you desire.

CANCER: It’s time to take those less-than-flattering flat boots you’ve had for ages and tuck them in the back of your closet for now. As January progresses, you will sense things in general are getting a whole lot better, so reflect these much-awaited positive vibes with a sparkling pair of sky-high stilettos.

LEO: Sure, the holidays were super-fun and you had a blast – you certainly deserved it! But now it’s time to buckle down again and get back to work. Even if your nose is to the grindstone, it doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous! Opt for a soft, flowing top or dress to lighten your mood.

VIRGO: You know better than most people that it’s all in the details, and this month is when you should focus on putting them all together. You already have amazing basics in your fashion portfolio and you most certainly have been working very hard. Make a smart style investment by indulging in a statement watch that is both timeless and up-to-the-minute.

LIBRA: This January, take the time to invest in your innate sense of style. You are naturally gifted at accessorizing, so take advantage of this slower winter month to organize your repertoire and while you’re at it, invest in a little something new for yourself, say some dazzling earrings or a statement ring?

SCORPIO: You’ve been hiding out more than usual recently, but fret not: the stars are moving quickly in your favor! Time to ditch the boring all-black ensembles and channel your fierce Scorpio energy with a bold pair of t-straps in a fiery shade of red.

SAGITTARIUS: You know that life is all about having fun, and this credo is reflected in your daily fashion choices. Forgo your basic black pants or boring blue jeans and opt for denim in a daring print or sexy lacquered finish. Who says you can’t be comfortable and stylish at the same time?

CAPRICORN: You have always been a fan of all things streamlined, and you love to collect items you truly believe are a good investment. Tap into both of these passions with a versatile clutch – the bigger it is, the more you can carry with you on your upcoming life adventures!

AQUARIUS: This month is full of surprises for you – in a good way – and you must prepare to charm and be charmed. Attract attention in all the right ways in bold and bright dress – the more you embellish it, the better!

PISCES: You are finally entering a time full of love and light, and what better way to represent that than making fashion choices in pretty shades you are drawn to? A subtle sprinkle of eye-catching sequins or sparkles will best emphasize a year of pure enlightenment ahead.
