How to Dress Like a Gemini
Gemini fashion is colorful, eccentric, and dramatic. Air signs embrace colors more than all the other signs. Gemini is also known for their intelligence, so they may don a professor ensemble or the outfit of an odd introvert reading a book in a coffee shop.
Noel Fielding and David Tennant as Dr. Who are two of my favorite examples of Gemini fashion. Coincidentally, both of these actors are British! Picture lots of tweed—academic dress is a favorite of Geminis.
Gemini's power color is yellow, though this sign will embrace any color. They like shades that pop—the brighter the hue, the better.
For comparison: Taurus, the fixed sign of spring, wears pastel colors. Gemini, on the other hand, prefers oversaturation and vibrance. This is because Gemini is at the end of spring and heading into summer. Gemini is open to colors with warm tones.
Yellow is bright, happy, communicative, and it reminds people of the Sun. Gemini is from May 21st to June 21st, when you'd get plenty of sunshine.
Red is a tad fierce for Gemini—it brings out Gemini's more aggressive side, so it should be used sparingly. Blacks, browns, and faded colors are not ideal for Gemini fashion. Gray is the opposite of anything spring-related. Remember: spring looks youthful, energetic, and innocent.
Gold is a better metal color for Gemini than silver because it is bold whereas silver is subtle. An outfit with various metal types is better than one that's monochromatic.
A good rule of thumb: If it seems appropriate for spring, you're probably okay. If you feel like your colors are veering more toward Halloween, then you're probably not conveying a Gemini look.
What to Wear
Bright colors, especially ones associated with spring or summer. Yellow is your power color. Pink, purple, green, and sunkissed orange are other options. Go gold!
Gray, beige, bland, and silver.
Any patterns are fair game for Gemini. The more unusual, the better.
Depressing imagery isn't ideal.
Gems with gorgeous colors are a plus. Diamonds are acceptable too.
Silver is the lesser option.
Opt for volume. Try different hairstyles. Unkempt is in vogue for you.
Don't neglect your hair entirely. Go for pretty and enticing rather than intimidating or edgy.
Wear shirts that are roomy, colorful, exciting, and accentuate your shoulders and arms.
Shirts that are simple and in basic colors like white, black, and gray. Midriff shirts because you want people's eyes up higher to the shoulders and neck.
You can wear any material. I would encourage solid colored pants as a base for your shirts.
Pants that make you look old and aged.
Dresses with patterns, interesting strap features, ruffles around the shoulders, bright colors, and interesting buttons.
Dresses that focus more on the neck. Dresses with no personality. Does your dress fit more for a Virgo? Then it isn't for Gemini.
The more you have in your collection, the better. Shoes with color or interesting design features are a plus.
Shoes that look like everyone else's.
The wilder the design, the more appropriate it is for Gemini. You could pull off the following patterns: flamingos in top hats and glasses, a blend of floral and plaid, dizzying zigzags and swirls, coffee cups spilling coffee, strings of math equations, dinosaurs in polka dresses, and fairies at a tea party.
Gemini loves patterns! As long as it's colorful and bold, it's fair game. Gemini wants color and style in their life; they're not minimalists who reduce their wardrobe down to white, beige, and black. Gemini wants clothes that grab attention, not ones that fade into the background.
For the smart professor type, try to incorporate stripes and subtle patterns into your wardrobe. That way people still take you seriously while you also offer a little bit of pizzazz.

Gemini should go bold with their makeup, just like they do with their clothes and pretty much everything else. It's always a good idea to have lipsticks in nude, pink, and red, but you can go beyond that and try orange, purple, yellow, and black.
Your nails will signal that you're a Gemini if they have a lot of color and design to them. If every nail has a different color with random shapes, I would definitely think you're an air or fire sign.
Have fun with eye makeup. Bronze, rose, purple, orange, yellow, and blue should all be staple colors for your eyeshadow. Buy eyeliner in different colors, and change things up every once in a while with violet mascara.
It's best for you to have a rainbow of makeup options, so you can have a different look every single day. You're encouraged to get creative and do whatever you want. Take your eyeshadow all the way into your eyebrows or leave them to your eyelids. Put different eyeshadow colors on each eyelid.
Blush is also your friend: light pink is smart and apple red keeps things cheerful. Be careful not to go too dark or red with your makeup, otherwise you might start to look more like an Aries, Leo, or Scorpio.
Gemini can do whatever they want with their hair. If your hair is a little messy, that's okay. You don't always need your hair to be on fleek. I recommend that Gemini try to magnify the volume of their hair. Long locks, curls, waves, and bright colors scream Gemini.
The air sign could get away with wigs, even powdered wigs. Your hair should make a statement, which might be a preposterous one or that you just woke up and haven't showered.
Try different ponytail and braid formations. For Gemini, I recommend challenging yourself to see if you can come up with a different hairstyle for 30 days.
Gemini can dye their hair whatever color they want; unusual colors will give off a Gemini vibe. Purple, pink, and teal are all great choices.
Don't forget hats! You can really make a statement with a hat. It's a good idea to have a hat section in your closet and to encourage yourself to buy new hats.
Gold is the best metal choice for Gemini because gold stands out. Gemini should wear big statement pieces, unusual jewelry, and items that make people laugh. Your accessories should be idiosyncratic.
You don't necessarily need to go whacky, you could harken back to the olden days: pocketwatches, monocles, corsets, Victorian-style boots, and muffs. Gemini is like a crow who finds little treasures and assembles them into their trove. Gemini should look put together, and they should have many trinkets and tricks up their sleeve.
Gemini is the type to own:
- Angel wings
- Pirate hats
- Cowboy buckles
- High tech accessories
- Bowling shoes
- Ballet shoes
- Clothes made entirely of a strange material, like tires
Prince had a style that could slay. A famous Gemini, the singer wore whatever he wanted to and it made him a rockstar. If you ever listen to or watch his old interviews, he could still be down-to-earth and on the level of his interviewer while also being eccentric.
Prince was a brilliant communicator who could appeal to the masses while also being the absolutely strange bird we all adored. Prince also broke boundaries by wearing items that were considered more feminine, so there was a kind of androgynous way that he approached clothes. He could make what was staunchly considered feminine a unisex garment.
Gemini should wear shirts that are playful, floaty, and saturated with color. You want your clothes to push boundaries. If you're in a more serious profession like accounting or finance, your clothes should just barely push past the status quo of white, brown, black, and blue button-ups. Look for shirts with patterns rather than solid colors.
Gemini rules the shoulders and arms, so your top should be more dominant than your pants or lower half. You want to accent your upper body, especially if you have muscles. Vests can help bring focus to your arms. Rolled-up sleeves are very flattering. Baseball shirts with different colors for the arms are also attractive.
It's a good idea to buy a variety of pants in different styles and sizes. You want enough pants that if you gain or lose five pounds, you'll have something to wear.
Your pants are your base, so I would suggest a strong solid color like black, red, yellow, or green. Gemini can get away with any material for pants, but the main attraction is above the belly button. It's okay if your bottoms clash with your top if it makes for an appealing effect.
Gemini's dresses are absolutely gorgeous with all kinds of colors, buttons, zippers, straps, ruffles, and bells. Gemini needs a dress that says something. Simplicity isn't your friend.
The perfect Gemini dress looks like something that escaped a dream. It's visually impressive, maybe slightly alarming, and definitely brilliant.
Dresses that are flattering for the arms and shoulders are a plus. Taurus dresses focus more on the neck; Gemini dresses focuses more on the shoulders. Asymmetrical straps are appropriate for the air sign.
Buy shoes in loud colors. You want shoes that make you happy and still look pretty. Spring colors are the way to go. Think purple, yellow, green, pink, and sunkissed orange.
- Red is more associated with fire signs and rage.
- Blue is more associated with water signs.
- Brown is more associated with earth.
You can at any point get shoes in the above colors, but I would recommend that the rest of your outfit veers to another color or two . . . or 12.
If you really like a specific color and just want to wear it, go for it! To make it more Gemini like add bold accessories and opt for clothes with patterns.
You want a collection of different-looking shoes. You'll need normal ones for exercise and chores, and you'll need showstopping shoes for your more exciting days.
