EVERYTHING that I wear has a peter pan collar. Or some zany 60s paisley print. Paired with a boxy bag. It needs to stop! I would describe myself as a general 60s throwback anyway, but I need to start dressing from a diferent fancy dress box!

this is how it broke down-

1 piece- belgian

yep...
that sounds about right... :p

softgrey, you might really be more like a labyrinth or a pineapple than an androgyne.

anyway, lastly, samuel taylor coleridge defines beauty - "that in which the many, still seen as many, becomes one". that is, "multeity in unity".

Does anybody think their zodiac sign plays a role in their personal style?

I'm forever guilty of buying the same item in two different colors. It's definitely the work of a dual personality guiding my shopping decisions: this part of me wants the red one, but that part of me wants the blue one, too. Dual personalities: Gemini.

Yes! I haven't really considered this before, but if there is anything to astrology I am a Capricorn through and through. Tailored classics, earthy colours, luxurious fabrics (I'd pick wool and leather over silk and chiffon any day - more grounded, less etheral), menswear or military details (quietly authoritarian), part Kate Moss, part Kate Middleton (both Capricorns). I usually have quite a clear idea of what I like and want and sometimes spend years searching for exactly the right piece (focused, steadfast, patient).

I could never be a fashionista and have never cared much about trends, and my style can easily slip into boring if I am not careful. The good thing is that I can't remember ever having seen an old picture of myself and thinking "what on earth was I wearing?!" - as my style has been quite consistent over the years.

Well, I believe that what you believe about yourself affects how you shop... If you think you behave like your sign, then you might act more like that sign....

At the moment I am very obsessed with black skinny jeans paired with blouses. I could buy more and more blouses.


It is quite funny that I have always been anti-Zara.
But now I have fallen in loooooove with their blouses and black pants.
I just have to be careful and check out the material first.

Also I try to learn how to wear white t-shirts but darn, they are hard to find. Eather the fit suck OR it is way too see through since I don´t really like wearing anything but a bra underneath.

At the moment I try to find a good bag that is not made from leather.
I am vegetarian and avoid anything made from leather.I know few vegetarian who buy leather stuff... .

Found this about how does your sign affect your style:

Quote:
Aries would want to always try new styles first, and enjoy sporty type clothing because they’re so active.

Taurus is a big fan of expensive or brand name clothing with nice texture– it has to feel good on their skin and be good quality or they won’t wear it.

Gemini [is] a tough one– they probably can have very different styles, like one day be stylish, and [the next] day not care; they’re all over the place.

Cancer would want comfy, [sophisticated] clothes, and would probably have a favorite piece of clothing that they wear a lot.

Leo likes to be the center of attention, and would want to wear clothes that draws attention to them, and brings out their attractiveness.

Virgos would want a practical style like for working that’s not too hard to maintain.

Libras always want to look beautiful, and they do.

Taurus and Libra are ruled by Venus, so they are said to be the most beautiful signs. They tend to care alot about their personal appearance and style.

Scorpios like black and other dark colours. They might look intense or have a sexual vibe to their style .

Sagittarius are always on the go so also sporty, like Aries but they might like more “exotic” looks.

Capricorns like to look professional, maybe wanting to give off the sense that they’re the best at what they do-leaders, in control, etc.

Aquarius would be quirky, always ready to try new styles like Aries . They’re the ones most likely to create or tryout new styles.

Pisces are very susceptible to whatever is around them. They are most likely to copy other people’s styles around them, but they would probably favour a more bohemian style.

Do you agree what it says about your sign?

^Mine doesn't fit in general. It did when I was younger and didn't know who I was at all. I thought my sign was some sort of unquestionable answer

I think this can make perfect sense. Depends on the reason why you are a vegetarian. If you do not eat meats etc. to reduce your carbon footprint, then wearing leather makes sense. If you do not eat meat because of the animals, then, yes, wearing leather is a bit odd.

This sign thing is fun! I kinda agree with it..i like trying new things and whatnot..


Right now though i like to wear jeans, not too skinny. I like straight more or wide but i do wear skinnies also,,and i think i am the one vegetarian who wears leather. Guilty. Maybe that is the reason why alma kemp is rude to me in person. sorry off the topic...
Anyhow i pair the jeans with basic t shirts or mens tee shirts with sleeves cut out, button down shirts, i need to find moreof them, also i need more good t-shirts .
I love cowboy boots and look a likes, boots with not so high heel. Flat sandals or flats.rather boring. I get these phaces that i am not very experimental..
Also i have started to invest more to quality, so i wear desinger more nowadays..though i do still shop high street but not so often..less is more.
Right now i dress like erin wasson mixed with olsens and my own.

Mine doesn't fit at all either (I'm a Sagittarius); I was never a sporty girl, not even casual one. But I do like and invest more in quality clothing for sport and free time. And I surely don't like exotic looks.
I'm definitely more like Scorpios.

And I think it's very common for vegetarians to wear leather; but not for vegans. Man can't call him/herself vegan if he/she is using any kinds of animal products whatsoever, regardles the reasons behind such lifestyle, imo. And veganism is a lifestyle, not just the way of eating.

Non-vegetarians (and non-vegans) never fuss over the terminology

Mine doesn't fit either. I'm an Aries and yes I liked to experiment different styles when I was younger, but now at 21, I think I've discovered what suits me and what doesn't and I can easily say that I've found my own style. I don't wear sporty clothes either, probably because I'm the laziest person of the world when it comes to sports.
I can see myself a lot in the Cancer description.
