Astrological Style: Taurus

January 27, 2010

(april 20th – may 20th)

taurus iconBasics:

* conservative, deliberate, loyal, stubborn, resourceful, materialistic, sensual

* Sign: Bull

* Colors: pastels

* Bulls enjoy luxury and prefer real to fake (real leather/fur (if they wear it), real flowers, designer clothes).  They go for luxurious fabrics like silk, leather, velvet, cashmere.  Those born in Taurus are willing to hunt for a bargain. They want high quality without the high price.

* Taurus women like no-frills, but still feminine, looks.  They usually wear traditional looks that are not overtly sexy.

* Taurus rules the throat and neck, so lady bulls love accentuating their necks with ties, scarves, and stand-out necklaces.

* To Taurus ladies, comfort is all-important: They are very focused on how things feel.  Bulls search for clothing with low-key charm.

Celebrity Taurus

Taurus trendsetters Jessica Alba, Jessica Stam, and Kirsten Dunst each have a unique personal style. Jessica Alba is a big fan of scarves:Here, she pairs her neckwear with tweed trousers and a cardigan for a menswear inspired look. Jessica Stam has the ultimate model off-duty style.  She wears the same things often, mixing and matching them for a new look: case in point the luxe leather jacket she’s wearing above. Kirsten is all about sexy – but without showing too much skin. Her red carpet look is glamourous, without a doubt, but also unfussy. She opts out of excessive jewelry and accessories, as a true Bull would.

Get The Look

Taurus Style

Outfit #1 would be perfect for a lunch date with long-lost friends, or a day of garage-sale shopping with your mom. It has the best of both worlds (completely intentional reference to Ms. Cyrus): A feminine, ultra-soft cashmere sweater, and then a rough-and-tumble biker-ish boot to balance things out. A plaid shirtdress adds some interest, but isn’t busy enough to be distracting. A simple but interesting pendant necklace draws attention to the neck, and tights (double layer if it’s as freezing where you are as it is here) give the look a finished touch. I would also wear this look with black denim.

Outfit #2 makes me weak at the knees. I don’t know if I could pull off a leather mini (faux), but I know any Taurus could! The key to working this look is the top: it needs to be reasonably conservative in comparison to the skirt, and I think the ruffled neck makes this blouse seem super classy. Crackled silver heels give a monochrome look some texture, and I couldn’t resist the Bull-esque simplicity of those stud earrings!

What Do You Think?

Are you a Taurus? Even if you aren’t, would you wear either of these looks? Have any tips on pulling of a leather skirt? I’d love to hear from you!

    I’m a Taurus and almost everything above is true about me! I just LOVE the second outfit, actually ordered that blouse today and…I own two leather skirts! ;) Now I definitely know what to wear next time I’m going out! :)

    I’m so jealous that you got that blouse! I am in love with it! And I think that outfit would be perfect for a going-out look. Thanks for the feedback :)
