Complementary Colors: Electric blues, violet, and turquoise

Style: When it comes to trends, you like to have fun and experiment. A sheer maxi skirt? Bring it on. Your fashion is reflection of your up-for-anything nature, so let your freak flag fly with an eccentric pair of shoes or a dramatic piece of jewelry.

Complementary Colors: Pastels like lavender, sea-foam green, pink, and light blue

Style: The Pisces woman’s sense of romance should extend to her wardrobe. Look for soft fabrics and lots of dresses and skirts. Also, never turn your back on pretty heels.

Complementary Colors: Bright colors that pack a punch

Style: Thanks to your natural-born confidence, you shouldn’t be afraid to try new trends and put your own spin on them. Seek out bold hues (red is your best color), daring silhouettes, and statement accessories.

Complementary Colors: Blues, earth tones, and neutrals

Style: For you, style is synonymous with quality. Don’t feel guilty about holding out for that designer handbag. We get it; you’re not a label snob: You just appreciate fine craftsmanship. In terms of shopping, you’re better off eschewing of-the-moment trends for investment pieces that won’t go out of style five minutes from now.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

Complementary Colors: Vibrant yellows, orange, and magenta

Style: Given the dualistic nature of the Gemini woman, your wardrobe can seem a bit all over the place (you prefers the term “eclectic”). That said, you’re best off looking for classic staples (e.g., a cashmere blend coat) in one of those bright, cheery hues that suit you so well, along with some fun accessories that speak to your inner magpie.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)

Complementary Colors: Light shades like white, silver, and pastels

Style: You’re not a big style risk taker and prefer to look pulled together in a ladylike kind of way. Indulge your sentimental side with vintage clothing and keepsakes. Also, on your next shopping excursion, pick up some silver jewelry. You might be surprised by how much you like it.

Leo (July 23 to August 22)

Complementary Colors: Dramatic hues like red, gold, and black

Style: Your fashion sensibility is informed by a) your taste for luxury and b) your need to be the center of attention. As such, you should seek out bold looks and (if your wallet can handle it) pieces by designer labels. In other words: Tom Ford.

Virgo (August 23 to September 22)

Complementary Colors: Earth tones; black and white

Style: You’re usually something of a neat freak, but when it comes to fashion, you look your best in cool boho togs (think flowing maxi dresses, furry jackets). Black-and-white is your signature color combo; look for it in a bold pattern like stripes or chevrons.

Libra (September 23 to October 22)

Complementary Colors: Pink, blue, and white

Style: A true lover of beauty, you can appreciate a wide variety of styles. However, don’t let this result in a case of fashion relativism. Indulge in your natural predilection for luxurious, soft fabrics like silk and cashmere and classic, feminine pieces (a Libra woman should have a dress for every occasion).

Famous Libras: Gwyneth Paltrow (pictued), Kate Winslet, Camilla Belle

Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)

Complementary Colors: Black; deep blues and reds like dark plum and midnight

Style: You’re drawn to daring pieces that accentuate your curves, but this doesn’t have to mean a body-con mini. Scorpios are known as much for their sex appeal as for their sense of mystery. This season, try a pencil skirt with a zip-up slit or a pair of over-the-knee boots.

Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)



Complementary Colors: Purple is the Sagittarian power color; light colors like peach, white, and beige

Style: Although you definitely care how you look, you put a premium on comfort. Your staples should include a good pair of boyfriend jeans, flowing dresses, and an elegant blouse. And be sure you have a handbag big enough for all the stuff you like to cart around with you!
