I am not a psychic. I am not a fashion psychic either. However, I am a chancer. It's Spring, the sun is shining and I feel like chancing my arm. Today, I am going to forecast the 12 Zodiac signs, in terms of fashion, of course. Are you ready?
20 February-20 March
It's your Birthday, Pisces. I could wish you some nice thoughts for the special day, but instead, I will tell you what to buy. This month, Pisces you have to turn all your Birthday wishes into reality. According to a source (reputable, it might not be), the number two is lucky for you. According to another source (Elle UK magazine) Mars is Pisces all month, so in terms of fashion, this is the time to be courageous. What should you buy, I hear? Heels. Daring heels. And heels always come in two's. Lucky, or what?

21 March-20 April
It is nearly your birthday, Aries. An Arian is a do-er. They talk the talk, but they can walk the talk, also. There is no holding back when it comes to fashion. Florals, gingham, denim, bandanas? Yes. In fact, I just described the D&G Spring/ Summer 2011 collection. We would all try to pull off this collection. But a true Arian would pull this off with panache. You will look better than the models. Trust me. Think Italian, be Italian.
21 April-21 May
Thinking about a new direction? If you are, don't forget to take along your birthday gemstone. The emerald. If you don't have an emerald jewel, buy yourself one. If you can't afford one, well then, buy a fake emerald. This emerald will always remind you of who you are. Even in the most testing fashion situations. And, it's a beautiful stone. Your outfit will always shine. It's a win-win situation!
22 May-21 June
We all like to spend a bit of money, but Gemini's love it. March will be a good month for your wardrobe. Why? Make March the party month, Gemini. Think sequins, ruffles and flats (for dancing). Don't even think about buying basics. And who knows, maybe that Topshop dress will catch the eye of someone. *wink wink* I am not to be held accountable if that doesn't happen, though. Just blame Topshop.
22 June-22 July
The dreaded crab is your Zodiac symbol. These creatures are ehhhh, crabby and so are you. Only joking! However, if you are not feeling very sprightly, I order you to go on holiday. When I think of holidays, I get images of the sea & sun in my head. An exotic Island, who knows...? Do you get the same images, Cancer? So, make sure to pack fun, flirty sun dresses and plenty of sandals. You might as well throw in a floppy hat or two. Get in the sunshine mood!

23 July-23 August
Leo, you are a lion! Think like a lion, act like a lion, dress like a lion. If you can't (or don't want to) do any of this, just take inspiration from Coco Chanel (famous Leo fashionista). Think simplicity with an edge. Think stripes, pearls. Think chic. You need some va-va-voom, though. You are a Leo after all. Where do you get this va-va-voom? Lipstick, darlings. Deep red, dark pink. You choose. You are the lion-ness after all.
24 August-23 September
Virgo's are known to be creative. However, the Month of March may not be good for your creativity. Let me ask you Virgo: are you feeling tired & lethargic? I have the cure for you. Colour. Loads & loads of colour. Put your creativity to test and try to pull an outfit together than includes several colour blocks. Think Pink. Think Green. Think Blue. All bright. You will be set for the rest of March.
24 September-23 October
Feeling fashionably restless? But can't afford a holiday? I advise that you exercise. Trainers are a major must-have. And I don't mean big white clodhoppers that would scare even the the biggest fashion hater. No white, but go for bright. Colourful trainers are the way to go. And you Libra, will pull them off with flare. Do you want my advice on what trainers to buy, Libra? You say no, but you really mean yes. My choice are Nike Air. Just do it! Remember colour.....
24 October-22 November
I am a Scorpio. I love being a Scorpio. People are afraid of the sting before they even meet you. But, my fellow Scorpions will agree with me by saying 'the' sting only comes out in desperately hard fashion months. Am I the only one feeling that the rest of March will be a hard time for fashion conscious scorpions? I feel the sting is a-coming. In a rut? Scorpions are known to be fashion forward, so go ahead, wear something fierce & fashionable. I know, I will! Outlandish head pieces will be the norm when going to Tesco next month. Mark my words.

23 November-22 December
The month of March has been a fun one for you so far, Sag. And the coming weeks will be even more fun. What do fun people wear? Now, that is the question! A party dress? Nah. A pair of leather trousers. No, way. Too much effort. A jumpsuit. Yes to yay. As in, absolutely. Buy a jumpsuit, Sag, and the rest of March will be a lot of fun for you. You will be literally jumping around. Okay, I'll shut up now...
23 December-20 January
You are a Christmas baby, child, adult. Do you like red, white & green? You say no? Stop being such a Grinch. You should like those festive colours. Well, you should definitely like white. I mean it's Springtime. Wear white and you will be less uptight. It's a known fact. From the My Republic of Fashion fact book. Wear white and you will be a delight. Dresses, skirts, trousers, blouses. End of.
21 January-19 February
Are you having a bit of trouble trying to express your fashion views this month? Aquarians, do not fear. I have just the thing to get your views heard. Write/type some fantastic letters to magazine editors. Who knows, Anna Wintour might be tickled pink by your ramblings and give you a column in Vogue. Your ramblings would be infamous in no time. And then you wake up. Worth a try, though.... Go for it, Aquarius!
Pick what sign you are. Let me know if I am accurate. My sincere apologies if I am wide off the mark. My Psychic abilities are wearing off.
