“Summer lovin, had me a blast. Summer lovin’ happen so fast. Met a boy as cute as can be….oh oh those summer nights..” Most of you summer babies know this song quite well. You may have been procreated late fall to early winter, but you have summer in your souls. With that being said, the most popular trends in summer are nautical (navy blue) and metallics, specifically silver and gold and here is why..
Those lovely trends are related to the power colors of the astrological signs of the summer, Cancer, Leo, and Virgo. These three signs represent the summer of our lives. The time we start careers and possibly families. Where we truly understand who we are and are comfortable with it. Water, Fire, Earth… all the ingredients to emotional stability, the passion to pursue our dreams and have our voices be heard and the stability and meticulousness to make it all happen.
Let’s break the fashion part of this game down, shall we?
ATTRIBUTES: NURTURING, MOODY, SENSITIVE
MOTTO: ‘I FEEL’
COLORS: SILVER, PEARL, SEA GREEN
Cancer is ruled by mother Moon. The moon rules our emotions. She is maternal, but at the same time fiery. Mother doesn’t put up with much and she knows how to get the waves roiling. Cancers can be quite moody at times and can be quite hermit like. When times get tough, they go inside their shells to lick their wounds, ride those waves, and figure it all out. But the one thing that gets them to come out of their shells, is something shiny and silvery, like the moon that rules them. In fashion, they lean more toward the flowy whimsical clothing.
ATTRIBUTES: FIERCE, AMBITIOUS, MELODRAMATIC
MOTTO: ‘I WILL’
COLORS: GOLD, ORANGE
Leos are the quite different from Cancers. They are ruled by the sun. The sun represents the persona that we show to the world. Leos are lions, they are fierce, they rule the Pride but that’s all they do. They don’t go out hunting (the female Leos do) they just roar and prance around showing off their manes. They are somewhat the peacocks of the zodiac. And like the sun, they tend to be the most mesmerizing person in the room. Like orange, you can’t up but trust them and once you are pulled into their orb, you can’t help but be drawn to them. Leos are fierce and will rip your heart out if you threaten their family or someone they love. In fashion, they tend to lean toward the more showy designs. They must always be strutting their stuff, even when no one is looking, because they know that it may seem that no one’s watching, but everyone is always watching them.
ATTRIBUTES: ANALYTICAL, SKEPTICAL, PERFECTIONIST, REFINED
MOTTO: ‘I ANALYZE’
COLORS: GREY, NAVY
Virgos, what can I say about them? Everyone knows a virgo. They are the accountants, the CFOs, the trainers, and other field that requires unwavering focus. Virgos are extremely analytical, they break things down to the last possible denominators. Contrary to popular beliefs, Virgos are not virginal, instead think of them as Queen Elizabeth I. They are quite nit-picky and are ruled by Mercury. They are all about communication, but often find it difficult to do so in their personal lives, but they are normally the stars in their careers. Virgos are refined, you may find them lurking around art museums, symphonies, operas, and ballets. Being that they are refined they tend to lean towards more professional outfits such suits, fitted dresses, and blazers.
