Your Celeb Icon
Sophisticated and demure with a slight edge, French singer and actress Françoise Hardy epitomizes the Capricorn woman.
Like fellow goats Kate Moss, Kate Bosworth and Vanessa Paradis, Capricorn women tend to have wide, deep-set eyes and high cheekbones. As a Cap, you prefer to keep your makeup to a minimum, but still look put-together. Take advantage of the fuller brow trend happening now, and let your own arches frame your intense gaze.
Capricorn's colors of choice are dark browns and greens—nothing flashy for this surefooted gal, who prefers the traditional over the exotic. If you're a Cap, look for vintage-inspired pieces in natural textures and earthy tones.
Because Caps love the natrual colors and shapes th ebest if you choose amber jewelry. Amber is your lucky stone plus perfect to your wardrobe. Those natural stones are easy to combine as many ways as you want.
Your Street Style
Sensible, secure and somewhat reserved, Capricorns have a sophisticated yet simple style and look. Cozy knits and a shearling-lined coat in neutral colors suit your down-to-earth demeanor.
Independent Capricorns need to be in control of their surroundings. Like everything else you do, your home has to be structured and organized. You gravitate toward traditional furniture in dark woods, offset by clean, modern accents.
Your Creative Outlet
Capricorns aren't generally the imaginative type, but that's not to say you wouldn't benefit from some sort of escape. You just have to choose something that suits your nature. Your innate powers of concentration would be great for something that require meticulous work like jewelry-making. Because you are practical, you also take on household DIY projects, ensuring that your time is well-spent.
Your Fitness Fix
Caps are very much concerned with reaching new heights, even when it comes to working out. Climbing and hiking are two activities that will give you a sense of accomplishment. Or start training for the next marathon—running in the open air is the perfect release and an ideal way to clear your head.
Your Ideal Vacation
With Capricorns' love of history and hiking, a trip to Buenos Aries would satisfy their needs. Visit the city's museums, along with the San Telmo district, which has some of the best flea-market shopping in the world. For a change of scenery, there's the nearby Nature Reserve in Costanera Sur where you will find plenty of trails to explore.
Your Love Match
Driven by success, Caps need a partner who is equally ambitious in their pursuits. Aimless drifters, take a hike. You're looking for a man who is mature, responsible and confident. Hardworking Taurus, who has the integrity to keep commitments, is an ideal match for you.
Your Love Clash
Capricorns are cautious with their hearts, but once committed, are as devoted and trustworthy as they come, and expect the same in a partner. Slightly suspicious, they're inclined to be jealous. Seductive types who will say anything to woo a woman into bed, like Gemini, are not your type.
Fairly introverted, Capricorns prefer a select few good friends who have proven themselves trustworthy and reliable, as opposed to a bunch of acquaintances. And while you can always be counted on for support, you have a hard time being on the receiving end and must learn to let others help you. Look to a Leo for a friendship that will stand the test of time.
