Did you know that each of the twelve astrological signs possesses its own, unique style? How does your sign show its true colors? Spring is the perfect time for a makeover — or even a complete closet overhaul. Read on to learn how to enhance your natural astrological energies through your clothing and accessories, and give expression to your very own style through the lens of your Sun sign.
Aries (March 20th - April 19th)
Whether prepping for a date, an evening out with friends or a meeting with a client, Aries loves including a pop of bold color in your outfit, such as a fire-engine-red scarf or an orange bag or briefcase. Fiery colors — red, orange, fuchsia — are perfect for Fire signs, since they command the kind of all-eyes-on-you attention that Aries thrives on. Yours is also a Cardinal sign, which lends you all the qualities of a natural leader, so why not dress the part? When you aren’t dressed in a power suit, you’re probably showing off your high energy and competitive streak in athletic clothes. Don’t forget your visor, hat or headband, since the sign of the Ram is associated with the head.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
For sensual Taurus, fashion is all about comfortable luxury — think silk, linen, bamboo and other natural fibers that feel wonderful against your skin. The sign of the Bull tends toward classic colors and lines; your closet may be filled with high-quality pieces in soft earth tones that never go out of style. For you, dressing well is a matter of simple good taste, so while you’ll always take pleasure in finding a bargain, you also don’t mind paying for bags, clothing and shoes that are finely made. Taurus is associated with the neck and throat, so be sure to show yours off with gorgeous earrings or a lovely scarf.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
Playful Gemini should have a great time experimenting with fashion. Look for bright, fun colors and patterns that express your natural vitality. As a Mutable sign, your flexible nature demands clothing that can move with you from daytime to nighttime, or from the office to an evening out on the town. On that note, clothes that allow you plenty of physical flexibility and movement are right up your alley, but that doesn’t have to mean athletic clothes. Look for styles that let you mix it up a bit — a full skirt with a vintage top, perhaps, or slacks with a great pair of shoes. Gemini is associated with the hands, arms and shoulders, so be sure to put yours on display with a sparkly, chunky ring or a shoulder-baring blouse.
Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)
Deeply emotional Cancer tends to wear clothes that correspond with your mood, which can shift from one day to the next. Generally speaking, however, you gravitate toward traditional styles along with items that have sentimental value or carry a history. Vintage shops and thrift stores might be your clothing mecca, along with your grandparents’ closets. Wearing or carrying even a small yet meaningful item, such as your dad’s handkerchief or your grandma’s ring, makes you feel wonderfully connected to generations past. When clothes shopping, seek out hues that evoke the depth and mystery of water, such as green, blue or silver, and project your natural authority as a Cardinal sign with well-made pieces that stand the test of time, such as a fine leather briefcase, belt or pair of shoes.
Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)
Bold, dramatic Leo loves wearing clothes that make a statement. Designer duds are definitely your thing, as are interesting details like vivid colors or architectural lines. Yours is a Fixed sign, so while you’re definitely fashion-forward and more than willing to drop some serious cash on an item you’ve fallen passionately in love with, your tastes run toward the timeless. Seek out colors that are reminiscent of the Sun, such as gold, yellow, orange and red, and when a funky pattern or texture calls your name, go for it — your personality is bold enough to carry it off.
Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)
Refined Virgo gravitates toward elegant clothing styles and understated colors that won’t make too much of a splash. Traditional, classic lines appeal to you, and you always make an effort to appear well put together. Yours is a Mutable sign, so seek out outfits that can do double-duty, moving with you from work to a date or meeting up with friends. You’re at your best in muted colors like dove gray, lavender and sage green, but don’t be afraid to challenge everyone’s expectations from time to time with a loud pop of color. After all, it’s okay to have a little fun with your look sometimes! Finally, especially if you have pets, be sure to pack a lint roller in your bag or the glove compartment of your car, so you can always make your best impression.
Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)
Lovely Libra always wants to make a great impression on everyone you meet. Furthermore, yours is the sign of Balance, so your fashion sense tends toward a creative yet balanced look that displays your natural sense of style. Since yours is also one of the most romantic signs of the Zodiac, you might be drawn toward gorgeous, flowing fabrics or patterns that appeal to this side of your nature. On top of all that, you love accessorizing with something surprising and artistic, such as a striking pair of shoes or earrings. Don’t be afraid to show off your authoritative side, as well; Libra is a Cardinal sign, after all, and while you work best within a partnership, you do know how to take charge when necessary. Project the right image with a classic, tailored suit, and make the look unique by adding your own creative touches.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
Whatever your personal style might be, as an intense and enigmatic Scorpio, you love creating an edgy look that keeps everyone guessing. Many Scorpios stick to a palette of nothing but red and black — mysterious, passionate hues that project the complexity of who you are — but deep blues, greens and purples can also create that air of mystery that you love. Plus, these shades evoke the depths of water, which is appropriate for a Water sign like yours. Scorpio is also a Fixed sign, making it likely that you prefer tried-and-true styles to temporary fashion trends. Your sign is associated with the pelvis, so provocative clothing and accessories, such as leather pants, spiked bracelets or a velvet choker, are right up your alley.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)
As an adventurous and athletic Sagittarius, you need to be ready for any escapade that calls your name — and your fashion sense reflects this. Your standard outfit might be jeans, a knit shirt and a fleece vest, or perhaps cargo pants and hiking boots. You also might have a closet filled with ethnic clothing styles, fabrics or accessories from around the world, reflecting your love of travel and other cultures. Most Sagittarians also have a quirky side, and fun, youthful pieces like plaid pants or a funky hat speak to this facet of your personality. Sagittarius is associated with the hips and thighs, so don’t shy away from showing off your legs in cropped pants or skirts. Supportive shoes are also a must, as they won’t hold you back from chasing down the next big adventure.
Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)
The sign of the Goat has rather conservative tastes when it comes to fashion. You want to project the right image, and considering your ambitious streak — yours is a Cardinal sign, making you naturally authoritative — that image probably has something to do with power and success. As an Earth sign, you look your best in soothing earth tones and natural yet luxurious fibers like silk, wool and linen. Your power colors — charcoal gray, violet and black — also project that air of subtle elegance that you seek. You aren’t one to blow your paycheck on a shopping spree, but you do see the value in a closet that reflects your classic sense of style, and well-made clothes and accessories that won’t fall apart in a hurry. Thus, you’ll splurge on the right item — and if it comes with a designer label, so much the better.
Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)
When it comes to fashion, most Aquarians fall into one of two camps: Either you can’t be bothered to pay much attention to what you’re wearing — there are so many other, more important pursuits to attend to — or you love playing around with funky, unusual clothing styles and accessories. Your look might even change dramatically from one day to the next, and you might do all your shopping in vintage or thrift stores that carry the one-of-a-kind looks you love. One thing is certain: Whatever type of clothes you gravitate toward, you always make eco-conscious and cruelty-free choices when you can, such as steering clear of beauty products that have been tested on animals. You might also seek out clothing companies that donate portions of their profits to benefit important causes.
Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)
Flowing clothing in subtle, shimmery hues like blue, green or silver that conjure up the mysterious depths of water or moonlight — these are the kinds of clothes and colors that define the fashion sense of a Pisces. This mystical and romantic sign loves beautiful, fanciful clothing styles that play up the whimsical side of your nature. You also adore artistic, handmade items — a silver bracelet that twists around your wrist, perhaps, or a fish pendant in mother-of-pearl that evokes your sign’s symbol of the Fish. Yours is also a Mutable sign, so you love playing with fashion and even switching up your look from time to time. You also might have a serious love of gorgeous shoes, since your sign is associated with the feet.
