In this new series (at every change of the moon lol!), we will be entering the world of fashion by examining horoscope signs through styling preferences and looks! I’m here to offer curve-ball inspiration in case you’re in a styling rut. So perhaps getting inspired by the styles of famous Zodiacs might be just what you need! Should be fun!
Do you dress for your Sign? I’m by no means a Horoscope expert, but I do love the fun that zodiac associations can bring out! Especially in Fashion. Do you think there’s any relation with how a person dresses, and their zodiac sign?
September is a month of renewal for me, so I’m beginning with this month’s sign: VIRGO.
Here’s what they say about Virgo: Firstly, she’s a down to earth, practical kind of girl. She’s also a Perfectionist- big time. September fashionistas love earth-toned colours and flattering shapes. And (this one’s debatable); chic modest looks. And- although these next particular traits seem to have nothing to do with fashion- they absolutely do: Virgos are determined, persistent and hard-working.
I’ve selected my own personal favourite Virgo fashionistas. See if their style emulates your own. Even if you’re not a Virgo, maybe you’d like to start dressing like one!
Let’s begin with the queen herself: Beyonce! Have you ever seen her look not polished from A to Z? She looks incredible every single time. We’ve seen her wearing a lot of gold (which can be a neutral, warm, earthy kind of colour). Her makeup is never overstated and is perfectly matched. This woman is unstoppable and her style reflects continued determination to pump out original, top chart material. Babe Boss.
My absolute favourite: Rachel Zoe. I find her style is completely chic! Loving the oversized blazers and maxi’s she styles up. Her hair and makeup is perfection. Another staple: Sky-high platforms. Her look can easily go from day to evening. Love her!!! Official Babe Boss.
Ok, who’s never heard of Sofia Loren? Femme Fatale Icon. Her style is definitely sexy, but leaving most to the imagination. Her look is curated and works for highlighting her best features and assets. She is the on-point epitome of glamour. Virgo perfection.
Canadian- born, first digital model: Coco Rocha…who always looks like she has that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’- it’s the Virgo in her. Poised and always looking guarded; which is more like a regal look in the case of this Supermodel. Sleek, chic and intense poise. Virgo.
Omg! Can we talk about MAKING AN ERA EPIC? Twiggy!! She emanated style to the max. Her doll-eyed makeup and a la garconne style is what made her an icon and delivered her 60’s message. Twiggy was the 60’s! Intensity in her style and simplicity- enigmatic to the max.
Grand beauty Super Model: Claudia Schiffer. Doesn’t even look like she tried…and yet looks impeccably perfect. Every strand of her hair (whether the look asks for disheveled or not)- is perfection. Need I say more: Virgo.
Who doesn’t adore Zendaya. She emanates style, fashion and power, doesn’t she? I find her incredibly avant-garde in her styling. So original- but always wearing what flatters her most. Never exaggerated- just rightly one-of a kind. Virgo.
Nothing goes unnoticed with this next fashionista that I adore: Pink. Have you ever seen her go unnoticed. Her songs, her attitude and her style; all depict her beliefs and what she means. Straight to the point. Virgo.
Keeping the best for last: Iris Apfel. Ostentatious to the max…and yet, how is it that she looks so chic, poised and ever-so creative?! There is nothing subdued or modest about her style (unless we’re referring to bodily modesty- because it’s true that she never shows much skin lol!)- other than that, Apfel’s look is a designer’s dream come true. Her look may have lots going on, but true to her zodiac sign, Apfel’s style is curated to perfection…down to the very last accessory. She is a master genius of fashion creation at its best. That type of consistency and flawlessness in detail, is certainly typical of her sunsign. 100 % Virgo.
And now for: Virgo Fashion Designers!
Karl Lagerfeld. Yes. Obviously. And take a good look at his own personal style. And…Chanel; need I say more?
Tom Ford. There you go.
Stella McCartney. Innovator par excellence.
Thomas Burberry. Right?
Olivier Rousteing. Up and coming- and here to stay.
HOW TO DRESS LIKE A VIRGO
1- Stay chic and look laissez-faire.
2. Wear it like you mean it. Stay cool and confident.
3. Be daring- but keep it together.
4. Keep it all in check. Perection and flawlessness is key.
LET’S TRY THIS!
My Conclusion of Virgo Fashionistas: Breathtaking, in your face, enigmatic, straightforward, unapologetically classy, ruling in their own league. They are top creative leaders in this domain. Effortlessly feminine and always in control. Hard act to follow.
Are you a Virgo? What is your fashion zodiac preference?
Stay tuned for next one up: Libra. See ya next moon!
