A new trend is emerging…
SS17 runways are crammed with tarot and zodiac inspired pieces. The best news? You can get ahead of this trend now as there are loads of horoscope themed items available on the highstreet. Topshop and Wildfox have amazing PJs’ and Zara have the cutest clutch bags. Wear your sign with pride! I for one haven’t been this into my star sign (Taurus btw) since I was a 13 year old “tweeny bopper” and I lived for the horoscope section in Cosmopolitan Magazine. I sought great comfort, over analysing the ridiculously open statements and interpreting them to mean whatever my subconscious wanted them to mean at that given time (yes, I am 100% a horoscope sceptic).
What about dressing for your Star Sign?
So, having looked at the budding trend of Zodiac inspired fashion I have become curious. Never satisfied to just sit and ponder, I got researching.
Is there any merit to dressing for your sign? What are the Style Rules for each sign?
I can only speak for myself as a Taurus. Researching my sign and its impact on me as a person and my style I have learned the following:
- I am stubborn
- I enjoy food
- I like scarves and expensive things (what a shock!).
All this because I am “ruled by my throat” (PMSL) and as a result I am told that taureans are obsessed with decorating their necks and stuffing their faces!
Although I laugh, I really am drawn to oversized scarfs and statement necklaces. So, maybe, just maybe, there is something in it. Then again, I’m also drawn to shoes, handbags, leopard print, coats (you can never have enough, they are the last thing you put on but the first thing people see you know!), glitter, sunlight, the ocean, the smell of bacon (despite being vegetarian)…the list is pretty endless, can it all be blamed on the bull? My conclusion…. Yes! Let’s blame my “hanger” and inability to back down on the position of the stars at my time of birth.
In the edits below, I have selected a style crush of my own that represents each star sign. I have annotated each image with some simple style rules/advice related to that specific sign and because I am super good to you guys I have also selected a “star buy” item for each sign (in accordance with the aforementioned “rules”).

So, that concludes my weekly fashion musings. Does your star sign influence your style? well, I think you can find some truth in most things, if you look hard enough. Do these star buys reflect your personal style? Do the style traits listed with your sign ring true? Or does the whole lot strike you as total baloney?
Id love to hear your thoughts.
