THIS POST FIRST APPEARED AS A PART OF TWELVE FACES OF STYLE, A COLLABORATIVE PROJECT WITH SACRED STYLIST JACQUELYN TIERNEY, THAT EXAMINED STYLE THROUGH THE LENS OF ASTROLOGY.

The Aquarian fashionista falls into one of three categories: The Risk Taker, The Androgynous Zone or The Girl Next Door.
The Risk Taker lights up in futuristic fabrics, asymmetric lines, unexpected patterns and lots 'o sweet sugary pink. Creative styling is the true north of her wardrobe compass.
Those in the Androgynous Zone prefer a neutral palette, with primary color picks of black and white. Their distant cool acts as a magnet for photographers, fashion bloggers and hipsters, making them the muse of urban street chic.
The Girl Next Door is just what you would expect - on the surface. Low-waisted or mid-rise flared jeans and silky, v-neck camisole tops are polished off by long flowing hair and a pretty, cake-batter flavored, sugary lip glossed smile. But underneath those clothes? She's a sex kitten. MEOW.
In the following Cosmic Capsule, we've picked the must-have pieces every Aquarian should own.
THIS CAPSULE IS FIT FOR AQUARIUS SUN, AQUARIUS RISING, VENUS IN AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS MIDHEAVEN.
Not sure which Aquarian you want to dress up as today? Satisfy all three of your inner fashion personas with one piece cut in an unusual shape (MATICEVSKI), one piece with fitted flow (TOME), and one piece that pops (Herve Leger). At least one of those pieces should be cut low to show off the assets. ;)
Nothing gets between the Aquarian and her jeans. Flared jeans, high-wasted jeans, culottes, skinnies, classic Calvins and short, short cut-offs can take the Water Bearer from day to night.
For the Aquarian on the move: black jersey harem pants are oh-so airport + street chic.
With rabble-rouser Uranus as their planetary ruler, Aquarians like to mix things up. One of their favorite areas of wardobe experimentation is the shoe. Lace-up knee high boots, strappy sandals, white pumps, and patent oxfords are the must-haves for these fashion daredevils. (Alexander Wang's collections are on-point Aquarian season after season.)
Aquarians don't follow trends - they are the trend - and no trendy outfit is complete without statement earrings (hoops!), a funky fresh manicure, and a thoroughly modern hair style. Colored locks, and especially magenta strands, are the Aquarian's calling card. More rebellious Aquarians can pull off anything with black leather, sleek lines and a black felt hat.
Don't be fooled - in every Aquarius woman is a "bad girl" whose imagination brings the kink to bedroom activity. Pasties, garter belts and a little Agent Provacateur can be found in every truly Aquarian lingerie drawer, even if she won't admit to it at first.
Tricked-out cell phone case, a sexy string bikini, cigarettes* and lip gloss.
For the Aquarians that savor the flavor of pop-chic, invest in at least one colorful faux fur like the statement coats below by Shrimps. And for those who like to rock an edgier, androgynous style? Look no further than Rick Owens.
*or a lollipop. Something to keep the mouth occupied is preferred.
