Aries: Red


Since Aries are passionate and spontaneous, they need a daring color to showcase their personality. Maria Hayes, astrologer and founder of Trusted Astrology, explains that this "energetic, active, and brilliant sign wears red to enhance these traits."

International astrologer and best-selling spiritual author Linda Berry agrees, noting that red attracts attention and represents "fame and reputation, which makes it the best suited for this fire sign to wear."

Taurus: Green

Tauruses are known for being stubborn and hating change. But Hayes says a pine green shade "will not only help calm their minds and souls down but also help them move towards growth and development." This earth sign is very at home in nature, and this hue will also make Taurus feel more connected to the outdoors.

If you're friends with a Gemini, you know how outgoing and fun they are. Because of their cheery and sunny nature, yellow is their go-to color. "Their personality—which is as colorful as the rainbow—would be much more enhanced with the brightness that this color can give them," says Hayes. They already spread positivity wherever they go, and in yellow, they can visually, too.

Cancer: Sky Blue

Cancers love to provide comfort to those around them, whether it's their friends or family. Hayes says this sweet and sensitive sign is known as the ultimate homebody of the zodiac, so "their calming presence would always be amplified if they're in the color blue." A tranquil pastel hue will help them and those around them feel relaxed and at ease.

Geminis aren't the only ones who showcase their sunny dispositions through what they're wearing. "Leos are the bold and regal showmen of the zodiac, so they're always looking to make a statement," explains celebrity astrologer and lifestyle writer Lauren Ash. "Ruled by the Sun, they know how to light up any room and use their energy to inspire and motivate others. Orange reminds them of all the optimism and joy life has to offer. Plus, it helps them feel powerful as they tackle the world head-on."

Virgo: Gray

The perfectionists of the zodiac can be quite intense and sometimes intimidate people around them. But Berry says wearing gray or silver can calm them down. Why? Gray can "bring balance" to their lives, which is especially helpful if they're "bombarded by too many stimuli," she explains. And being that Virgos are very type-A, gray is a neutral color that's simple to throw on with anything else in their wardrobe.

Libras strive for balance and long to feel comfortable in any situation. Because of that, their power clothing color is a muted, mellow pink. Berry explains that pink is best for Libras because it "symbolizes love, joy, purity, happiness, romance, and brings calming and serenity to relationships." Since Libras have a reputation for falling in love easily, a romantic color is perfect for this open, affectionate sign.

Scorpio: Black


Complex, intense, and mysterious—is it any surprise that Scorpio's traits translate into black? "Because of their penchant for darkness and secrets, it is a no-brainer that Scorpio's color is black," says Hayes. If you're a Scorpio and want to add a little color to your wardrobe, Berry recommends maroon, a mixture of red and black. "Wearing the combination of these two colors brings the deep consciousness of black with the action of red, adding a spark to life," she explains.

The adventurers of the zodiac are always on the move, exploring a new country, trying a new hobby, or meeting new people. Hayes explains that the regal color purple can aid them in arriving at "certain revelations about themselves and the world." Plus, when they're out and about, this approachable hue will attract all the friendly faces they desire.

Capricorn: Navy Blue

Capricorns are serious, business-minded people, so they thrive in colors that speak to their professionalism. Hayes recommends navy blue because it's "no-nonsense" and will help them feel "more confident in their ability to get the job done." And since this practical sign likes to keep things simple, a neutral color like dark blue will take the guesswork out of putting together an outfit.

Aquarians are big thinkers who care deeply about social causes and often want to inspire others, and aqua can aid these messages, explains Berry. Hayes says this color helps them "not only feel more comfortable but also calm and collected regardless of their situation." And given that the rebels of the zodiac often find themselves in unique situations, this is definitely a good thing.

Pisces: Lavender

"Pisces are known for their playful and colorful personalities. They turn any situation into a positive, making them some of the best friends you can find in the zodiac," says Ash. "They give a lot of themselves to other people and toward their own dreams, so they need a lot of downtime to recharge and refresh their batteries. The soothing color lavender not only brings out their imaginative side but helps them relax them as they dream about the next adventure in life."
