9 Things Every Scorpio Should Have in Her Wardrobe

The most intense of all the zodiac signs, Scorpios are also a jumble of contradictions. Passionate but secretive, low-maintenance but also perfectionistic, you guys have a lot going on. Here’s how to dress like the nuanced woman you are.

9 Spot-On Gifts for the Scorpio in Your Life

Body-hugging Tees

How do you strike a balance between your fiery passion and reluctance to be the center of attention? With a comfortable top that shows off your curves but is also, like, reserved. Turns out turtlenecks can, indeed, be sexy.

Timeless Denim

Scorpios value loyalty, so they tend to pick a jeans style and stick with it…for a long time. (Trendy crops? Nah, we’ll take timeless skinnies, thank you very much.) Invest in quality brands and you can go years without replacing.

Sexy Night-out Dresses

Though not many get to see this water sign’s emotional, feminine core, you know how to bring it out for maximum effect. In other words, you’re a pro at drawing out the two-syllable “day-um” when you want one.

Sneakers You Can Wear All Day

Scorpios are incredibly practical, which means you’ll rarely find one teetering around town in sky-high stilettos. Supportive (but always stylish) sneakers are the way to this fall birthday-girl’s heart.

Leather Jacket

The scorpion has its tough outer shell…and the fashionable ones take that literally. It doesn’t matter whether you prefer a classic leather moto or long leather trench, so as long as it’s unadorned, neutral in color and totally badass.

A Super-portable Rain Jacket

As the most practical of all the water signs, you'd never get caught in a downpour unprepared. And you’re never without a lightweight rain jacket that folds up nice and neat into its own little pocket.

Something Red

Most of your wardrobe consists of black, white, gray and beige so you can easily blend in with any crowd. But when you do decide to give color a try, look to your ruling planet Mars for some burgundy, rust or crimson inspiration.

A Well-tailored Power Suit

Scorpios are professional, successful and natural leaders—though not as vocal about it as their Leo or Aries friends. An understated but sharp power suit is a must for wielding your power without making it all about you.

Neutral-hued Stripes

Scorpios like to be concealed observers, meaning they’re unlikely to gravitate toward vibrant colors or bold patterns. Navy and beige stripes, however? That sounds like the perfect mix of fun and function.
