What happens when the stars aren’t aligning for you — literally. This week’s news of the shifting Zodiac, threw me, and apparently a bunch of others, into planetary/wardrobe chaos. If you’re having a Zodiac-related identity crisis, here is our cheat sheet for upgrading your wardrobe to match your new sign:

CAPRICORN: You’re practical, so versatile and comfortable clothing, like a great pair of black pants, just makes sense.

AQUARIUS: Your style is edgy and unique – so go over the top with over the knee boots and bib necklaces.

PISCES: As an artsy girl with creativity to spare, head to an exhibit in black booties, but hit the studio in UGGs.

ARIES: You’re energetic and need colorful, bold clothing to keep up. Shop leopard print shoes.

TAURUS: You’re loyal and grounded, so neutrals are your thing. Stock up on flat black boots and trench coats.

GEMINI: You’re a trend-setter, so you’ve gotta try a pair of lace-up booties and a faux fur vest.

CANCER: You’re a romantic so play up your sensitive side in a flowy maxi dress with a chunky cardigan over it.

LEO: As the lion, you’re always the center of attention. You look great in everything–but just don’t forget the red lipstick and sexy bra.

VIRGO: Keep it neat with simple lines and clean, crisp silhouettes. You can never go wrong with a great sheath dress.

LIBRA: It’s all about staying balanced, so know your proportions–go for skinny jeans and sexy oversized v-neck sweaters or wide leg jeans and blazers.

SCORPIO: You’re sexy and you know it, so build up your arsenal with black dresses and a pair of pumps. You never know where the night will lead.

SAGITTARIUS: You’re the luckiest of the signs–things always seem to go your way and everyone wants to hang out with you. Throw a soiree and show off your best party dress.

While I’ve been a Taurus all my life, apparently, I am now an Aries, which means I’ve shifted from being resourceful and wearing classically tailored neutrals  to being a fiery siren that sports bold colors and prints. See how I upgraded my look:

I will certainly be more daring as an Aries in this vibrant printed Torn by Ronny Kobo Printed Dress ($143). The form-fitting silhouette is party-ready with sky high pumps and a matching clutch.

Perfect for a lighting your look afire, this Roberta Chiarella Coral Brava Bib Necklace ($128) in audacious coral will add drama to any outfit.

Forget the standard black pump, as an Aries, I dare wear bright purple platform pumps (and I may even layer contrasting socks underneath for the ultimate statement). These Dolce Vita “Valencia” Peeptoe Platform Pumps ($111.30, down from $159) are pure sultriness in suede.

Shop more bodycon sheath dresses, bib necklaces and more pretty pumps that’ll catapult you style-wise into your new intergalactic orbit.
