Your Fall Fashion Starter Pack, According to Your Sign
We took three things we love—starter pack memes, "back to school" shopping, and star-guided discovery—to map out exactly what you should buy this fall.
"Opposites attract" is the rule to live by this fall, Aries—romantically and style wise. Pile on a pastiche of unlikely combinations like a boxy shearling jacket over evening wear—and hey, feel free to rock that ensemble in the daytime. Or, if subtlety is your art form, trek through your 9-to-5 in glittery brogues and a suit.

The limelight—and the red carpet—are beckoning you, Gemini. Let "Rock Royalty" be your style profile for the fall 2016 season. Stock up on leather minis and pair Bowie-inspired platform boots. The statement fur (real or vegan) could be your trademark topper. You'll be running around town till the wee hours, so tote your life with you in a sturdy bag with an embellished wide strap—maybe one cribbed from a guitar!

Cooler weather might be the death knell for beach season (always sad news for a water sign) but take heart: Cooler weather also ushers in the cozy vibes that Cancers live for. Wrap yourself in oversize everything and opt for tops with extra-long sleeves. Consider it an ersatz crab shell. But don't drown out your curves. Put a belt on it, Cancer.
