“All of the 12 astrology signs have different personalities, talents and challenges. They each have a unique fashion sense that is associated with their sign, too. Fire signs are more dramatic, while the water signs are more muted and, yes, watery. What is your color palette? You might be surprised that it was written in the stars when you were born. Here is a quick guide to your perfect color scheme, using your birth date.” — Susie Cox
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
The color for Aries is red. This fire sign can handle a bold or dramatic style easily. Remember that Aries is the warrior, and female warriors are seen today as commanding business women or lawyers in power suits. A black jacket, pencil skirt with a red silk blouse is perfect for this sign. The confident Aries can wear a robust print with a red as the dominant color. Everyone notices when a female Aries enters the room.
Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
The color for Taurus is blue or earth Tones. Taurus is an earth sign and feels more comfortable with a more classic style. They are not prone to trendy, hip or crazy fashion. I call Taurus the “sign of cashmere.” They like the best quality with the finest fabrics. The typical Taurus has tender skin and needs soft fabric. Their closets are filled with classic pieces that will last forever.
Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
The color for Gemini is yellow. The youthful Gemini is an air sign at its lightest. This sign is always up for the new, trendy styles. They love being current with fashion and aren’t afraid to wear color. In fact, Gemini is made for bright color. It makes them happy. Yellow, mint green and bright orange all work for this exciting sign. If any sign could wear neon, it’s Gemini.
Cancer (June 22 – July 23)
The color for Cancer is aqua and silver accents. The watery, conservative Cancer prefers a more traditional style. They are not attracted to flashy, trendy or revealing clothing. Softer, muted colors as well as fabrics appeal to the nurturing Cancer. This sign is drawn to small prints, skirts with a light wrap worn around their shoulders. Kind and loving is the style here.
Leo (July 24 – August 23)
The color for Leo is gold. The fire sign of Leo is grand and, in fact, is the sign associated with royalty. Their fashion sense is dramatic with lots of hair, powerful makeup and leaning towards high fashion. They strut their stuff with ensembles that others would love to wear, but couldn’t. The bold Leo loves big gold jewelry and is always well-dressed for their audience… the world.

The color for Virgo is brown and Earth Tones. The earth sign of Virgo is typically very meticulous with everything, including their fashion sense. They are always neat and polished and enjoy a more modest look. Never flashy or too revealing, Virgo likes to be understated. Less is more with this sign. A tailored, structured dress of high quality works perfectly for Vigo.
Libra (September 24 – October 23)
The color for Libra is green and white. Libra is an air sign and is connected with the planet Venus. So the romantic Libra is always stylish with a decided feminine flare. They are fond of pastels and the soft touch of silk against their delicate skin. Libra always looks sophisticated and seems to make fashion effortless.

The color for Scorpio is black and maroon. Think of an exotic spy with dark shades and a hooded cape, and you just got to know Scorpio.

Smokey eyes and red lipstick, of course.

The color for Sagittarius is scarlet and khaki. This adventurous fire sign prefers a more relaxed, sporty style in fashion.
