Remember when Govinda sang ‘What is your style number, karu kya dial number’ to Karisma Kapoor back in the 90s? While it may have seemed ridiculous at the time, turns out there’s more logic to these lyrics than what came across.
Yep, your life path number can help you sort out your life as well as your wardrobe. Finding a one-stop solution to your morning wardrobe crisis is numerology. They say fashion and style are a strong way to express your personality, to be comfortable in your own skin and let your inner crazy out. Whether you’re an OCD-stricken control freak or a free-spirited dove, your personal style will, and should, reflect it. I know what you’re wondering. What, exactly, is a life path number, and how can you find out what it is. It is one of the fundamentals on which the science of Numerology runs. Just add up all the digits in your birth date (DD/MM/YYYY), until you get a single digit (1-9), to arrive at your life path number.
Now that you have it, what do you do with it? Well, each number has a few dominant traits. These can help you align your wardrobe with your personal dominant trait. We’ve done the research for you, you’re welcome! Read on below to see what your number says about your personal style:
Number 1, you never slip up. Always on point, always ahead. Yes, you’re a natural leader and taking style risks is your hobby. Granted, they always pay off. Whether it’s at work or at a party, there’s no way you go unnoticed - you love to mix prints and have a thing for off-beat silhouettes. Keep it up: no pressure.
Your life path number might be 2 but you’re all about one thing and one thing only: attention to detail. According to you, it’s all the little things that life is about. Whether it’s fabric quality, fit or statement trims, you’re on it. You might not be an avid risk-taker but your style investments are nothing if not excellent. Numerology FTW, amirite?

Books, films, sculptures and paintings: a few of your favourite things, Number 3. You’re an art bug, and there’s no denying it. Your personal style, for you, is all about self-expression. Woke up happy? Your outfit is most definitely going to be a rainbow. But if you’re upset, you’re wearing that ripped t-shirt with a rude slogan. Yep, I gotcha.

You believe in long-term relationships, whether it’s with your job or with your boyfriend. You’re in for the long haul. You love spending time alone and would trade a book on the beach any day over shots at the local bar. When it comes to dressing up, you rely on classic prints and silhouettes, a failsafe outfit.

Number 5, everyone wants to be around you. All day, errday. Your energy is contagious and you sure know how to show your peeps a good time. Your wardrobe tells the tale. Statement fashion is your jam. Holograph detail? Ruffles? Metallic? You want it all, and if anyone can make it work, it’s you.

Ah, the hopeless romantic. Number 6, here’s the deal: you daydream about fictional heroes, icing pink hearts on cookies and love happy endings (obviously).

You love pastels and ‘less is more’ is your life motto.
