Libra Style

|
Libra Season kicks off tomorrow (September 23 - October 22) and just like I do every month for my Astrology Style Series, I'm sharing the style traits of the sign of the month.  I examined the everyday style of some famous Libra ladies to see what they have in common and what outfit ideas I can get from them.

Last year with this series, I focused more at the personality traits of each sign and one of the key traits of a Libra is their need for balance and harmony (see the post here). In Chinese Philosophy, the Yin Yang symbol represents balance and harmony (more here), and go figure, the black and white outfit is the signature look for Libra ladies.

Here's my recent Libra-inspired outfit:
Top: Express / Jeans: Express / Necklace: Purple Peridot / Bracelet: Banana Republic (Gifted, Similar) / Shoes: Nordstrom / Bag: Express

Yin Yang-ish, right?


I'm not a Libra (I'm an Aquarius, which is also an Air Sign like Libra), so I've rounded up the signature Black and White looks of a few other famous Libra ladies to show you how they do it from athleisure to red carpet style:

Gwen Stefani (October 3, 1965):

Gwyneth Paltrow (September 27, 1972):

Candice Swanepoel (October 20, 1988):

I am a huge fan of black and white Libra style, and it's my go-to on pretty much any day when I'm not feeling very creative in the outfit department:

ONE:
Top: ExpressJeans: ExpressNecklace: Purple PeridotBracelet: Banana Republic (Gifted, Similar) / Shoes: Nordstrom

TWO:
Top: Express /  Jeans: ExpressNecklace: Express /  Sandals: Target / Bag: Express

THREE: 
Top: Express / Skirt: Express (Similar) / Necklace: Old Navy / Sandals: Lord & Taylor

FOUR:
Top: Express / Shorts: J Crew Factory /  Necklace: Express (Similar) / Sandals: Macy's

Okay Libra ladies, let me know if Black & White is one of your style staples like your sign mates! I loved seeing how Gwen, Gwyneth and Candice all have such different individual styles but still gravitate toward black and white so frequently!

  4. Love all four of your looks! I definitely need a new white long sleeve portofino blouse to add to my closet again this fall. I am totally rethinking my sign might be a libra. I'm a black and white girl all the way. I love how all three of these celebs have more of an edgier style, I just love all the leather and Candices thigh high boots!!

    Hope you have a great day!

    I do have a question, is your Portofino the pure white or the soft ivory?

  17. I've always liked the look of a black top with white bottoms and I really love your take on it with the shoes and accessories. Of all the Libra ladies, I'd say Id like to be more Gwyneth, but in reality I'm not really pulling it off. I do especially like the one with the bright blue shoes though.
