This month my #UntamedStyle sisters and I are back with a fun theme. We are all so different and diverse, yet have similar sensibilities. What better way to show our style and personality than with an outfit inspired by our Zodiac sign. I am not sure how many of you really know about your sign and what it means. Not everyone is into astrological signs and how they relate to who you are and your personality. I have always been fascinated by astrology and zodiac signs, it helps me understand who I am, but also the people around me. So next time someone ask you "What's your sign" don't think of it as just some cheesy pick up line. They may be genuinely interested in getting to know you and understand what makes you tic....I know I am!
So after doing some research on my sign (Taurus) and how my style is influenced by the characteristic of this sign, I found much of it to be true and not just fluff!
Here is the basic on Taurus Style:
- Gentle and affectionate, the earthly sign of Taurus is likely to stick with pieces that are traditional classics.
- Taurus fashion is all about texture. Only the finest fabrics will do, comfort is key to this senses-driven sign.
- The Taurus fashion rule number one has to be: incorporate flowers where you can.
- Taurus appreciates classic looks and sensual fabrics, generally conservative.
- The Taurus body part is the thorax, throat, neck – you name it, the trunk is Taurus!
So what does this all mean? Being a Taurus I am partial to more classic styles, comfort is key and texture does come into play. It it doesn't feel right to me, no matter how good it looks I won't wear it! I have also always been attracted to floral prints. Looking at my closet I realized, I have tons of floral prints in dresses, shirts, pants and even shoes! I also lean more towards natural fabrics and neutral colors. I have always said I am a hippie at heart, loving bohemian style, but also adding a bit of edge. I can't be a bull with out being a little bit of bad ass! My closet is also full of scarves and I am always looking to buy more...well now I know why. I love a good scarf and always feel comfortable and secure having one. In the cooler months I make sure to always have a pashmina or some kind of scarf in my bag. Its such an easy way to elevate and outfit and look stylish. Being a Taurus is about loving life's little luxuries. I some how manage to live a very "rich" life on a small budget, which what this blog is all about. Like the saying goes "it only looks expensive"! So there you have it a little insight into how my style is influenced by my astrological sign. You probably will not see me with anything too trendy, always wearing similar silhouettes and having a comfy and casual style. I am a creature of habit and stubborn at times, but I know what I like!
So next time you're picking out an outfit or wondering where you taste in fashion comes from, it may be influenced by your sign. Here is a good website I found that has lots of good info on fashion and signs Star Sign Style.
Here's an outfit I put together inspired by Taurus. I took all or most of the elements of my sign, according to my research. Incorporating flowers, comfort, natural fabric and touch of boho style.
