Fashion Trends and Chinese Astrology
Notice how animal prints made a big comeback -- just in time for Tiger Year 2010?  If you want to be chic this summer, wear a tiger print, or a pattern of any of the big cats. A tiger-print bikini would be smashing with a red cover-up. 

If you consider an animal print to be too flashy, then simply accessorize with animals prints. Find the perfect belt, sandals, hat or scarf -- just don't wear them all at the same time!

Follow these Chinese astrology fashion guidelines, based on what animal rules a particular year, and always be in style!

In a Tiger Year …
Animal prints are in vogue, especially prints of the big cats. Fur makes a comeback, jewelry is over-sized, and fashion borders on costume especially accessories. Time to be brave, bold and daring. (Note: ifyou were born in Monkey year, avoid the big cat prints because Tiger is your opposite.)

In a Rabbit Year …
Soft and fluffy are in with light furs, silk, and other fine fabrics. Quiet feminine luxury is desired, and fine craftsmanship is valued, Rare vintage or antique pieces are in vogue too, especially one-of-a-kind jewelry of colored stones.

In a Dragon Year …
Big prints, bright colors, and look-at-me dressing is fun, as are exotic animal skins; anything and everything dragon-like such as crocodile. Shoes and boots are strong. Over-the-top, diamonds, and lots of red can work in a Dragon year. (Note: If you were born in Dog year, Dragon prints or any type of Dragon imagery is not lucky for you.)

In a Snake Year …
Exotic animal skins continue such as snakeskin, lizard, and stingray. But style is far more subtle and classic. The Little Black Dress makes a comeback, and pearls return. Elegance is key.

In a Horse Year …
Athletic wear is on the rise, everyone runs errands in workout gear, and casual pared-down outdoorsy looks have their day in the sun. New synthetic material is used in most everything, not just for sports.
