Life Path number 7
If ever there was a number cut out for sweats and a t-shirt, it's Life Path number 7. That's not to say you lack class or taste, simply that your attention is turned inward and upward. You are a deep person with spiritual passions, and you prefer not to spend most of your time primping. Since so much of your life is devoted to study and seeking higher wisdom, fashion is not at a premium for you. Strike a balance between comfort and being presentable by filling your closets with loose-fitting pants, breathable knits and fabrics that make you feel at home all the time. It's entirely possible you work from home, or that you spend much of your free downtime at home. It is therefore advisable to have plenty of clean sweatshirts, sweatpants and tees at your disposable.
But remember the adage "no man is an island?" That's true for women as well, and whatever passionate path you're on mentally and spiritually, you will find the need to connect with other like-minded individuals. You have the mind of a detective, always searching out new information and seeking to have your questions answered. Take special care that you are well turned-out when you leave the house -- this will gain you credibility and the trust of others.
Also, your solitary pursuits make you very interesting company. Do make sure to go out every once in a while, and on those occasions, let your natural charm and attractiveness shine through. It doesn't take much effort -- a simple dress with a feminine touch, for example, will do the trick.
Life Path number 8
Your Life Path number has the greatest potential for material wealth, but it comes at the cost of great effort. Therefore, "dress the part" applies to you most of all. Find a way to dress like a million bucks -- on a budget. Be careful, because 8s can also be extremely reckless with their resources.
It is your imagination and vision that will make you the big bucks and get you the attention, so go for formal with only the occasional touch of flamboyance. Get a little bit of bling and make sure that your outfits make a positive impression. This doesn't mean wearing something with a plunging neckline, provocatively high hemline or loud print: you can wear bateau-necked sweaters and wow people with your sense of elegance, for example. Since you are trying to be taken seriously, go for solid colors over unusual prints.
It isn't always easy to get others to see your vision, so make sure you don't distract them with how you present yourself: think "less is more," then make an impression with subtly distinct outfits. Pair simple dresses with savvy, classy shoes, for example.
Life Path number 9
Your humanitarian interests ensure that you don't spend too much time in front of the mirror or digging through the closet. Utility is the name of the game for you, and you don't want to spend too much time fretting or spending money on what should, for you, be function, not fashion. You could never spend too much money on clothes, but you can combine your passion for various causes with simply getting dressed -- stock up on Amnesty International tees, or even clever shirts that make people think about the state of the world.
You may be getting your hands dirty planting a community garden or building a house for Habitat for Humanity, but make sure that you dress simply rather than slovenly. If you're drumming up support for your passion, you need people to know you are professional. Whether you're trying to get a grant, donations or more volunteers, you need to present yourself in a way that makes others feel they can relate to you.
Because you also have a streak of the creative and romantic to you, make sure that you choose simple clothes with flattering cuts -- you can satisfy all sides of your overwhelmingly generous nature. You don't have to spend a ton on outfitting yourself, either -- go to thrift stores and second-hand shops to find comfy tees, movable dresses and shirts.
