For some signs there's a certain item that they love (like Virgos and their neutral cardigans), and other signs seem to gravitate to a color (like Gemini and black or Leo and white). With Scorpios it is definitely about the color. Last Year I focused more on Scorpio personality traits and learned they they are intense, passionate people. So it seems very fitting that their signature color is also an intense, passionate red, like these Scorpio ladies are wearing:
Bethenny Nov. 3, 1970 / Emma Nov. 6, 1988 / Jenny Nov. 1, 1972 / Demi November 11 1962
Another interesting thing I discovered is that in the U.S., election day falls under Scorpio Season. And coincidentally, some well-known political ladies like Hillary, Condoleezza, and Laura are all Scorpios. And of course, they love to wear red!
Hillary Clinton October 26 1947 / Condoleezza Rice November 4 1954 / Laura Bush November 4 1946 /
I thought this quote about Scorpios from Astrology.com was very interesting and completely fitting of my perception of Hillary in particular. "The great strength of the Scorpio-born is in their determination, passion and motivation. Scorpios don't know the word quit, which is why they usually get the job done. A powerhouse? Like no other."
Now comes the part of the post where I try to get some style inspiration from the sign of the month. And here's the deal: I only own one piece of red clothing that I can use this time of year - my red Barcelona Cami as seen in these past outfits:
Top: Express / Necklace: Express / Skirt: Express (Similar) / Sandals: Nordstrom
Top: Express / Jeans: Express / Shoes: Aldo (Option) / Necklace: Express (Similar) / Wristlet: Express (Similar) /Bracelets: Express (Similar)
Top: Express / Jeans: Express (Similar) / Blazer: Express / Shoes: Dolce Vita Safia (Option) / Necklace: Express (Similar) / Wristlet: Express / Bracelet: Etsy
I'm an Aquarius, so red isn't exactly my signature color. In general I like it a lot! But when it comes to outfits I have a hard time styling it in a way that doesn't make me feel "festive" since it's associated with so many holidays (Christmas, Valentine's Day, 4th of July). I usually tone it down by pairing it with black (as evidenced above). However I wanted to use this post as motivation to branch out and get some new fall outfit ideas, so I hit up Pinterest for some new-to-me ideas.
Red and Camel/Beige:
(I swapped the colors on the tops and skipped the boots since it's too warm for those here):
Express / Top: Express / Necklace: Express / Jeans: Express / Shoes: Sole Society / Ring: Target
Red and Grey:
Express / Top: Express / Necklace: Kendra Scott (c/o) / Jeans: Express / Shoes: Sole Society
Result: I really wasn't comfortable in either of the new-to-me outfits and I don't see myself wearing them outside of this post. They were okay, but just not quite "me." I guess I just don't have enough of that Scorpio intensity!
As always, I can't wait to hear from Scorpios how you feel about your signature color! I don't have any female family members or close friends who are Scorpios to compare notes with on this one!
