Do you know your Chinese zodiac sign? It’s very similar to the astrological signs but every year there is a new sign/animal. 2013 is the year of the snake and it’s very evident in fashion. But before we dive into the fashion side of things, here’s some insight into the characteristics of a person born in the year of the snake. Good tempered and a skillful way of communicating are top on the list of characteristics. Although they are skilled at communicating, they say little. Think of it as everyone’s favorite uncle who never said anything, but when he did open his mouth he had words of wisdom! Along with those traits, people born in the snake year are very fashionable and stylish. No wonder snakes have made such a splash this year!
