The holidays are here and we know that means: Parties! Even the budget-conscious will probably pick up a few new pieces for the festivities. Every store window tells us what to wear, but the fact is, the style that makes you glitter is based on more than passing trends, or even your body type.
Not everyone can pull off a leopard-print cocktail dress under the mistletoe -- but if you're a Tiger, your wild side may be your best side. Your animal sign can tell you about your own personal kind of charm, and how your wardrobe can showcase your natural essence this season.
Perfectly polished Rat should always dress for success, and jazzy executive touches are appropriate, no matter how formal or informal your event. It's the details that set you apart: a silk neckerchief tied smartly, with matching shoes and clutch. Coordinate jewelry and hair accessories for that put-together finish.
Timeless elegance is your domain, so avoid this year's "it" dress. A truly classic look suits you best, and makes you a presence in any room. Try a little black number with a simple, flattering cut and a long strand of pearls. Add retro touches like long gloves or furs (faux, of course, animal friends!).
Bold and brazen is your trademark. Your only boundary is imagination -- Tiger is as crazy as she wants to be, so unleash your inner diva and put on a show. Only you can get away with breaking all the rules. Go ahead and shock Santa with your leather micromini-skirt.
Revel in your perfect balance of sweet and sexy. Soft, touchable textures like angora or cashmere highlight your natural sensuality. A figure-hugging sweater dress with saucy kitten heels will make you the one they want to cuddle up next to.
You don't follow trends -- you set them. Risk-taking becomes you, both in life and in fashion. Pick one unusually extravagant element as the focal point of your ensemble: a distinctive hat, crocodile shoes, or a bright red trench coat with movie-star sunglasses.
Cultivate a mystery to enchant whomever you meet. Opt for sheer fabrics and layers, especially in dark, rich colors like purple or forest green. Choose an unusual piece of jewelry, gemstone or animal pendant as a conversation piece, and watch it hypnotize your admirers.
Go your own way and follow your instincts. Showing up in someone else's dress is your worst nightmare; accent your signature edgy style. If you suspect it will be all ribbons and lace, go urban: wear zippers, spiky heels, a cropped jacket and chain-link belt.
Baby, it's cold outside! Let your outfit warm your body and everyone's hearts, even if it's not snowing. Those adorable boots weren't really made for walking, but for strutting at parties! Don't forget your candy-cane striped scarf and mittens.
Your ironic wit can't be suppressed, so why not bring some levity to your attire? The reindeer sweater from your grandmother would give some people fits of shame. On you, it just reminds your friends that you are the life of the party. remember, nothing is sexier than a great sense of humor.
Being the brightest bird in the room comes naturally. Experiment with a couture style you've only seen on the runway. Sure you'll stand out, but the more heads that turn, the better. Everyone will wish they had your guts and glam. Bonus points if you incorporate vinyl.
A class act like yourself doesn't go to extremes to attract attention. What's important is that your clothes are tasteful, high quality and perfectly fitted, so to really impress this holiday season, visit a tailor for your custom cut. Traditional never looked so good; the rest seem like they're trying too hard.
Luxuriate in lavishness and highlight your femininity. Dress for Cinderella's ball in a chiffon dress, if you like. How often do you get to be a princess? Is a tiara okay? Anything for you. Glass slippers, too?
