Finding the right handbag is hard work. Not only does it have to hold your essentials (read: a small drugstore’s worth of makeup and fashion tape), it has to effortlessly complement your dress and shoes. Take the stress out of this often last minute decision by looking to the stars for guidance. Below, discover the best handbag to carry to your next event by your zodiac sign. These insights will help you choose the perfect bag to finish your look, no matter where you’re headed.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
As a laid back Libra, you need a handbag that’s as easygoing as you. We suggest opting for a soft leather clutch in a color that’s polished, yet still playful. This way you’ll be prepared no matter what your schedule has in store, whether it’s a cocktail party with colleagues or or a brunch date with the girls.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)
Bold, spirited, stylish, Scorpios are the ultimate sartorial risk takers. Instead of settling for a neutral bag, express your passion for experimentation with a printed clutch. Take a risk by pairing your go-to basics with a clutch featuring a bold pattern you’ve never tried. This small step outside of your comfort zone will open new territories for your personal style.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
Your optimism shines through in all aspects of your life, from your behavior to your style. Showcase your unique ability to spread sunshine by carrying a quirky clutch that turns heads and makes people smile. A clutch with a fun, creative design — like a sailboat, for instance — is sure to add a whimsical touch to your look (and your Instagrams).
Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)
Determined, practical, helpful — all are among the winning qualities of Capricorn women. These characteristics are ideal for the office, but often get in the way of style spontaneity when it comes to your closet. Use your next event as a chance to push the limits of your natural tendencies and try a look you’ve never dreamed of wearing. An intricate, beaded clutch, for example, is a great way to add unexpected texture to your feminine look.
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
You’re known for your inspiring imagination, Aquarius. Friends are fond of your playful spirit and comfort towards risk-taking. This makes you a natural trendsetter. Put this gift to work and opt for an unconventional handbag-outfit pairing. Styling a cocktail dress with a daytime cross body bag, for example, will show off your inventive approach to personal style.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
It’s no secret your appreciation for the finer things makes you an elegant dresser. As a romantic sophisticate, you gravitate towards soft shades and feminine silhouettes. Compliment this style with a clutch featuring metallic details. The pairing is cool, classic and polished, just like your winning charm.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
Show off your cool, confident vibe with a rule-breaking bag. Instead of carrying a clutch to your next evening affair, rock a cross body that’s as playful as your personality. Don’t be surprised if you start a trend within your group of close girlfriends. Your effortless ability to take risks is infectious, Aries, so you might as well own it.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
Your elevated taste makes you a lover of the classics, Taurus, and you wear them well. Channel your inner Grace Kelley, as you often do so effortlessly, and pick out a handbag that expresses your timeless style. A structured clutch with a modern finish should be your go-to standard for formal affairs and nights on the town.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
To match your dynamic personality, carry a handbag that starts a conversation, like a marbled clutch. Not only is this choice chic, it’s also adaptable, which will certainly come in handy given your spontaneous mood and spirit of adventure. In one minute you’ll be seen at a post-work function, and in the next you’ll be making an appearance at a friend’s cocktail party. We suggest selecting a bag your comfortable bringing along for the ride.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
Your loyalty is one of your best qualities, Cancer, which is why your ideal handbag should be tried and true. You dislike change, so find a bag that will go with anything, like a ladylike top handle tote. Spice up this classic choice by opting for a bag in an unexpected shade, like blush or blue.
Leo (July 23 to August 22)
Energetic, personable, glamorous — this describes you to a tee, Leo. You can make something simple look special simply by rocking it with confidence. Use this talent to transform a standard rectangle clutch into a statement piece. This choice will pair perfectly with whatever knockout dress you plan on wearing to your next event.
Virgo (August 23 to September 22)
SHOP: CLUTCH, INGE CHRISTOPHER
Clean lines, smooth textures, sleek details — these are a few of your favorite things, Virgo, which is unsurprising, given your love of organization and precision. Aim to carry a clutch that satisfies your love of refinement, like a rounded clutch in a moody hue. This elevated choice will elevate any outfit you throw together, whether you’re headed to a girl’s night out or your best friend’s wedding.
