Zodiac Dresser: Aries Again

My astrologically-themed series The Zodiac Dresser is back after a year's hiatus. This time around, I'll have less info (don't like repeating myself) and more jewelry. Today's post celebrates my own sign Aries. It was inspired by my birthday twin, Asa
kaftan: thrifted, I couldn't style it how I wanted due to the weather
Given Aries's passionate, fiery nature, being associated with the color red makes perfect sense. Aries are direct, trend-setting and upbeat but also argumentative and impulsive. 
jewelry: vintage Kuchi 
Each astrological sign is associated with a different part of the body starting from the top and moving down the body. First in the zodiac's calendar, Aries is associated with the head hence my head-dress.

Because it's represented by the ram, I've always associated Aries with big, hoop style earrings alluding to curved horns.

Fashion-wise, Aries tend to be trend-setters because they like to be first, are confident and love novelty. 

Any Aries readers out there? What is your personal style like?

  1. I'm an Aries (April 2nd) and I love flamboyant, colorful dressing, but my style also tends to change with my mood. Thanks for the info on my zodiac style! You look gorgeous!

  2. After I saw this post and the one about Asa, I had a dream that I got to wear tribal jewelry and when I woke up, I was sad. The point being, I LOVE it. Big silver, big shapes, bright colors. But as you know, not an Aries. :(

  3. but did you know I find Aquarius to be the most inspirational sign for outfits over all? my aquarius outfit from 2011 is one of my favorite outfits I ever, ever posted here

  4. the one with the purple dress? huh, really? i wonder why... i would have thought Aries or maybe Virgo (something totally opposite and therefore challenging).


looking forward to hearing from you!
