Did you know that as the first sign of the zodiac, Aries rules the head?
Represented by the Ram, Aries takesÂ theÂ lead, head down, ready to charge. Theyâ€™re Doers!
They believeâ€¦ and they Do it!
Being a fire signâ€¦ dilly-dallying and slacking in not in their DNA! They do things with burning passion and zest!
Theyâ€™re not afraid to stand out! Okâ€¦ forget ‘not afraid’…, they LOVE to stand out! They love to be differentâ€¦ they thrive under attention! Others might think and worry about what people think of themâ€¦ but not our zesty Aries beauties! For them, as long as people are thinking about them, they donâ€™t care what it is!
And this reflects in their style as well! They despise the conventional and believe in inventing their own styles! OTT (Over The Top) is not a word in their dictionary! OTT for them translates to UNIQUE! I mean, just look at Lady Gaga! Sheâ€™s the iconic and quintessential Ariesâ€¦ Gorgeous, bold, strong, self-dependent and always the centre of attention!
Aries Style Symbols:
Colour: Red. An Aries woman, with her personality can pull off a bright scarlett any time of the day, in any season and at any place! And they look stunning in them! Red dresses, bold red lipsâ€¦ theyâ€™re all about making that statement!
The colour Red, also acts as a boost of warm energy that can lift spirits and act as fuel to the fire! So anyone in need of that extra dose of energy and a burst of passion (even at work or anywhere ;)), Iâ€™d say just take a cue and go for red!
Hats and Headgear: Since Aries rules the head, hats, head-wraps and head accessories are an Ariesâ€™s most beloved and suited accessories.Â Especially the more dramatic kinds â€“ Fedoras, helmets, hoods, top hats and large turbans!
Unapologetically Attention Seeking: For me, the most admirable part about Aries is that theyâ€™re one of the most attention seeking lotâ€¦ and they’reÂ unapologetically so! Theyâ€™re not the kinds whoâ€™ll pretend not to enjoy it! In fact, theyâ€™ll admit to loving all the attention and will bask in its gloryâ€¦ and you canâ€™t help loving them for it!
This also makes them amazing style iconsâ€¦ always doing things and creating looks that are bold and out of the box! Boots, stilettos, dramatic hair-dos and make-upâ€¦ they know the works!
Larger Forehead: Â Aries women tend to have larger fore-heads symbolising the brave determination and head-first nature of the Ram.
Now that, in my mind is great because it gives them a larger canvas to accessorise! ðŸ˜‰
They generally have bold, angular brows which give them that confident, â€˜donâ€™t mess with meâ€™ kinda appearanceâ€¦ and enhancing those and playing them up would be a fabulous idea for the Aries!
Another thing that would look amazing on them is the â€˜Bindiâ€™! A large forehead can make a large round or a long bindi look absolutely wicked! Bindis also are symbols of honour, responsibility and determination â€“ everything that Aries stands for! So itâ€™s like a match made in fashion-heaven!
And if youâ€™re an Aries woman, you wonâ€™t just be looking at wearing the bindi with Indian outfits! You could wear them with a pair of ripped denims and a long cape with a turban and be all set to turn heads!
Other forehead accessories like head chains (maang tikkas) and really oversized sunglasses would look great too!!
Details of the Look:
For this look, Iâ€™m wearing a bright red silk dress with stiletto, ankle length boots! Iâ€™m also wearing summer gloves, i.e. lace which makes sure youâ€™re not feeling hot and at the same time, looks classy and makes a massive statement â€“ the Aries way! Oh, and no look meant for an Aries, would be complete without the Fedora hat and the bold red lips! ðŸ˜‰
