Jupiter in Leo: focus on back and neck
Jupiter stays in Leo from July 2014 to August 2015. About two years ago we introduced a new concept in Fashion Astrology, which is closely related to the influence of Jupiter’s transit in a particular Zodiac sign. This is a zone of generosity. It becomes a place of attraction sights and scope of designer fantasies. Jupiter in Cancer puts the focus on the bust. Jupiter in Leo draws our attention directly to the two areas, which are the projection of the Zodiacal sign of the human body:
1) the neckline area, zone of the heart and
2) upper back.
According to the description of the encyclopedia, the neckline is this space from the neck to the female breast. Since the Middle Ages many techniques that helped to emphasize this area was invented, for example, using special dress and special underwear design. Since then, nothing has changed fundamentally. Beautiful female breast is still the center of attraction views.
So, after a period of celebration female bust (Jupiter in Cancer, 2013-2014), we launch a new period, which is caused by the interest in women’s neck and back (Jupiter in Leo, 2014-2015). How to highlight these areas with the help of modern design solutions? Let consider each of them separately.
Techniques to emphasize the neckline:
- design solutions that help to emphasize this area;
- closed or open shelves of clothes, jacket lapels, blazer;
- V-shaped, round, oval, rectangular cut-out;
- decorative trim: border, embroidery, applique along the neckline;
- jewelry, located on the chest or along the neckline.
Techniques to emphasize the back:
- constructive lines;
- the neckline on the back;
- contrasting fabrics;
- transparent or lace inserts, fabric imposition etc;
- bows, laces, sections.
Some of these design techniques you can see in our photo gallery. To understand what will be the fashion period of Jupiter in Leo, you can use the spiral model, for example, a 12-year cycle of Jupiter. Look through fashion magazines for 2002, 1990, 1978, etc. Then you can better imagine what awaits us in the near future. We will be proud of the beautiful neckline and keep a straight back!
