Villavogue: Your Fashion Sense Based on Astrology

Kaelin Trombly, Staff Writer

With an interest in astrology or not, many believe that zodiac signs determine one’s basic personality. This is one’s default emotional state that regulates how you present yourself, who and what you tend to attract and what work you ultimately feel called to do in life. Since fashion is a way of expressing ourselves, it is said that astrology can play a role in how we express ourselves through a signature style. Here is how one’s sign may affect this.
