The first energy center, the Root Chakra, is all about survival and being grounded -- both metaphysically and physically to the earth. Think the color red, maroon, sanguine -- bold and beautiful and striking. It's astrological correspondence is Saturn, symbolizing structure and limitation. Capricorn is the astrological sign of the Root Chakra.

Capricorn is classy never brassy.

When it comes to fashion, Capricorns are conservative and tend to like those earthy dark reds, like delicious Merlot. Usually well-cut and tailored business suits look best on them. Capricorns appreciate quality in the fabric and style (think Savile Row, London). Trendy and flamboyant and frilly do not entice the fashionable Capricorn, as they appreciate their clothes to stand up against Grandfather Time. Their style is sober, but not boring. But Capricorns are certainly no flamboyant Leos.

In general, Capricorns are ambitious with excellent work ethics. They are good with money and you will find most Capricorns are reliable. Meaning their sense of style must reflect these qualities, so that they feel safe and efficient in their lives.
