It’s been a real rollercoaster ride of a year, and while we see 2023 on the horizon, we’re not out of the woods yet as the last month of 2022 is going to give us a few plot twists. So make sure you have your favorite coat ready, but things are about to get chilly.

First, it’s the season of the goat with major planets entering Capricorn throughout the month: Mercury on the 6th, Venus on the 9th, the sun on the 21st (marking the winter solstice and the shortest day of the year), and the new moon on the 23rd. Capricorn is the sign of determination, ambition, and maturity. It rules the house of career, public image, and reputation. So the fashion mantra of this month is “dress for the life you want, not the one you have”. This is a time for power suits, blazers, and tailored pieces that can really make you feel like a boss.

Also happening this month, Jupiter, the planet of luck and success will be loving back into Aries on the 19th, encouraging us to be bold, loud, and take action as we get ready to enter a new year. Don’t be afraid to add some color to your outfits and wear things that allow you to move freely so you can tear it up on the dance floor. We’ll also need outfits that are adaptable when Mercury goes into retrograde on the 29th, putting a damper on our New Year’s Eve plans. Wear your PJs instead of a fancy outfit.

So what do the cosmos have planned for your wardrobe this month? Check your stylescope below, and remember to check your sun, rising, and Venus sign to get the best insight (and more outfit ideas).

Aries (March 21—April 19)

You’re ending the year looking sharp and stepping into your power. Especially when Jupiter enters your sign on the 19th.
