Fashion Through The Zodiac
When you are Aries or dress for Aries in your chart, you are all about getting it done, no fuss, no muss, out the door, thank you very much. The Aries woman wants to look good but can’t find the time to soak, pluck, paint, tuck and ponder when it comes to beauty and fashion. Life has been made easier for you, Aries dresser, so step up to some new ideas and some old ideas that work again to bring yourself up to date!
Hairstyles that scream “Aries” are fast, easy and look fun while having just a bit of seriousness to them. Aries dressers and not for curling and straightening if they can help it but the signs of the times are just right for our Aries friends because it’s all about natural these days. The idea is to have a cut that can be maintained easily by using product, almost no blow dry time and that falls into place with no problems. Go with your natural hair type by finding a cut for straight hair if your hair is straight or curly hair if your hair is curly. Many Aries types like to find a short cut that can be tossed after washing and worn but some Aries dressers like to keep it long and let it air dry. Whichever way you wear your hair the idea is to have a cut with some layers that show, and if your hair is short wispy layers look all the rage. If your hair is curly it is sometimes easier for Aries types to wear it longer so it does not puff out on them and keep it where it needs to be with product.
Wash, apply product and air dry are great steps for Aries dressers. I love new wispy layers for straighter hair, and for long hair the chin, shoulder or long cuts look great. There are great new additions in product lines for curly hair so find your product by talking to a hairdresser even if you are not their client. Ask what will work best to hold and condition your curls. If your hair is straight ask a hairdresser what products work best to show your wispy parts and keep them separated. For straight hair it also helps to have a product to condition your hair that is not too heavy but that is effective. Try the wash, add product and air dry trend, Aries dresser, for true happiness!
Clothing these days is all over the page but be sure your jeans are still out there to wear and they are not going anywhere. You might want to try a pant instead of a jean from time to time since Aries dressers are often pant wearers as they want to be ready to lead people wherever they may need to. The right dress for an Aries dresser is a “no brainer” which is a dress that is easy to wear, has no belt and not too much in the way of embellishment, one that can be pulled over the head or zipped up in a flash. Jeans can be found in skinny leg which are like leggings, a boot cut or “cigarette leg” style, a flared bottom, and every other leg in-between! Since Aries dressers love their jeans it’s best to choose the right fit for you and stick with it unless you feel you can wear a number of styles.
If you feel you have hips the flair leg pant can be helpful since the flair at the bottom can balance the hips. If you are thin and love your legs, a skinny jean can be your best friend because you can wear them as leggings or pants. A boot cut pant looks best on most figures because it goes to no extreme and is a classic look.
If I could give you one new fashion tip this season I would say “fringe.” Fringe is making a comeback now and you Aries dresser can wear it with flair! You are on the move, love to make a statement and can wear it with your pants, so maybe look a bit for a great vest or coat with fringe! You can search thrift stores and vintage stores for fringed clothing as well. I don’t think you will be disappointed if your “go to” jacket has a bit of fringe on it. Aries love to have fun!
If you buy a dress this season think about buying a different shape. It’s all about shape this season and in seasons to come and you can bet the change starts now. Grab a “no brainer” in your signature red or another bright color in a length that suits your leg and body best. Any length goes now although there is a real engine behind the longer dress again this season. Aries, no one tells you what to do in life so grab the length that suits you and wear it!
Bold colors are great for you and this is the season to find them in things like color-blocked clothing or the new patterns that are sprouting up everywhere. You will find patterns, Aries dressers, in so many different styles you might want to throw up your hands and run out of the store so let’s make it more simple for you since you usually hate to invest time in shopping. Look for prints that make you smile or make you feel powerful. It does not matter what anyone thinks of your pattern choice but you, so look around and look for a pattern that you know you will feel good in and go for it! Don’t worry about what anyone else is wearing because patterns are all about expressing yourself.
The waist on dresses this season is the natural waist. It’s not about empire waists this season so you will find more and more dresses with a real waist, even belts which normally drive you crazy!
Shoes for you this season should fall between the great, almost flat heel or the comeback of the platform if you are the type to wear them. To get a good fit on your leg you can try a fabric top on your boot and leather bottom. This boot that is made to stretch around your leg always fits the best and can be the most flattering if you have good legs. The idea is to find a boot or shoe that you can wear most often with your clothing and stock up on a couple or three choices for this fall.
Black and white is a new trend in shoes and boots but can be tricky for wearing every day and an Aries dresser does not like to put a lot of thought into what they are putting on for their day. I recommend a quality boot or shoe for Aries so spending a bit more on your boots and shoes is a good idea since you can be hard on them and taking care of them is not your favorite thing to do. You can be judged on your shoes so remember to get the very best you can to show who you are with no effort on your part. If you are one who dresses for Aries you are a person who does not like to put a great deal of thought into what others think of you but it is important to look pulled together. A classic cut boot always works too so if you are an Aries dresser who wears jeans and cowboy boots or even combat boots, find the very best you can afford. Your shoes should last you five years before going out of style, at least, so invest a bit!
As for your look, one thing to think about is the type of makeup you put on your face. You want a base that is easy and I always recommend for Aries dressers to try moisturizer with tint or brush on mineral makeup. You can find both in most lines at most price points. Both these types of base are easy to apply and can do anything from hide your pores to lift your face if you find the right one! Bases these days can minimize your pores, lift your skin, lighten your coloring and even work on wrinkles, so do a bit of research and have your base work for you!
One application of one product that does double or triple duty is perfect for time-pressed Aries! A wisp of mascara, a smudged line on the upper lid and a lipstick that comes close to your natural lip color is about all you need to complete your day look! Add a blush if you have the patience but most Aries types do not!
I have tons of tips for those who dress for Aries, so post questions here if you have them and share your ideas as well! Happy Fall, Aries!
