We may not be experts on astrology or the moon’s position, but we do know style alignment. And in forecasting the next month, here’s what’s in store for you.
Sure, it’s always easier to react once your emotions have kicked in (as proven by your utter lust for that elbow-patched corduroy blazer that’s now in your closet). But sometimes it’s better to weigh decisions based on logic rather than feelings. For example, yes, supple suede boots are needed in 3 colors: for home, office, and your best friend’s house.
Nobody likes the feeling of being unprepared. The best counter attack? Quell all gift-giving worries with a closet stacked with what-if gifts that cover everyone from the hostess to the dog next door. Besides, anything left unused by the end of the season becomes yours by default.
It’s a fact: friends should be able to tell one another the bitter truth. So be wary of surrounding yourself with people that are too sensitive (sniffling while watching The Notebook doesn’t count). If your bestie can’t accept that her choice of wide-leg pants aren’t the most flattering – especially when flares look like they were made for her – it’s time to toughen her up.
It’s no secret that things are better in groups: parties, bangles, après-ski drinks. But sometimes, you crave a little alone time. Our advice? Add some cozy touches to your bathroom (scented candles and some decorative flourishes are a must), grab a good book, and lounge in the bathtub until you’re pruney.
That urge to add some creativity into your professional life is becoming unbearable. Sigh. But until that looming promotion gives you creative license, try mixing inspiring fashion into your workwear. Color and pattern are everything, so pop in a pocket square (yes, that means you, ladies), rock a bright pump, or spice things up with a confidence-boosting red lip.
You’re a big self-motivator – your high-strung nerves alone are proof of that. But in the spirit of this hearth-loving season, you deserve a break. First up: Create your own sanctuary. We’re talking layer the couches with textured throws, pile on the pillows, and light a holly-berry scented candle (or three).
