What To Wear For NYE, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

New Year’s Eve is a night filled with jeweled tones, sequins, and good energy. Your zodiac sign in Astrology has a unique fashion blueprint, and the style that you resonate with most often has something to do with your sun, rising, or Venus sign. When it comes to New Year’s Eve, it's a night when you are ready to celebrate. It’s a time when you are letting go of one cycle, and about to prepare for another. Some signs may prefer to stay in on a night like this and reflect on all this year has taught them and do their new year's rituals. (I’m looking at you homebodies: Cancer, Virgo, and Taurus.) Other signs prepare for this day months in advance, and that includes what they will be wearing.

Fire signs may or may not do New Year’s Eve the best. From the festivities to the fashion, to the excitement for it all; you definitely want to go shopping with a fire sign or plan a night out with one.
