Virgo Fashion

Virgo's style is the opposite of its predecessor, Leo. Virgo wants toned-down fashion, minimalist ensembles, and simplicity. A proper Virgo outfit is elegant, colorless, and practical. Don't show off, don't try to look like a giant dragon, and don't try to be edgy. Your clothes should blend together perfectly; nothing should clash. Virgos are supposed to look clean, presentable, and serious.

Virgos are associated with scholarship and intelligence, so you don't want to look youthful and immature. You are an old soul with classic and traditional persuasions, you're not someone who shows up with glitter in their hair, a cape, and 8-inch platform shoes. Virgo is someone who goes to bed at a decent hour, plans ahead, studies to be a lawyer or accountant, and has a designated spot for everything.

You can buy expensive and nice things, but they shouldn't look flashy. Virgos want items that will endure time.

Virgo wears simplistic clothes in neutral colors and earth tones. Avoid bright colors.

Colors

Virgo's power color is brown. Your color palette should be based on earth tones and neutral colors. A Virgo wardrobe will have plenty of brown, beige, gray, black, and white garments. Olive green and ochre are other colors you can bring into your world.

Avoid bright colors like red, hot pink, and yellow. Your sign doesn't care for bold or biased colors. Avoid blue as well because it portrays water, and you're kind of stubborn for brown. A light blue is better for Virgo than a dark blue. Colors that look faded and close to white are acceptable.

Virgo doesn't want to shock people, so they avoid shocking colors. They want to keep things as neutral and bland as possible. They're supposed to be a negotiator or mediator, not a celebrity.

The elements have the following color associations:

  • Fire: red, orange, yellow, white
  • Earth: green, brown
  • Air: yellow, blue, purple, pink, green
  • Water: blue, gray

Patterns

If you're wanting to project a Virgo vibe, patterns won't help you. Stick to solid colors as a Virgo. If you do want a little bit of pattern, it needs to be incredibly subtle, like tiny dots, hearts, or flowers. Your pattern should look unassuming and simplistic. Never wear something that looks chaotic.

Avoid striking patterns like vertical stripes, triangles, and flames. Virgo doesn't want to draw attention or raise the energy of a room. They want to keep things tame and simple, which is why solid colors are king.

Virgo jewelry is simplistic. I would encourage you to wear silver pieces with white jewels.

Jewelry

Virgo's jewelry should be subtle and small. Opt for silver jewelry over gold. Silver is a more subdued color and is associated with the moon rather than the bold and in-your-face sun, which is associated with gold.

Virgo's birthstone is blue sapphires. I would encourage you to get stones that are round rather than square. Your jewels should be small and elegant. Wear studs for earrings, rings with no gems, thin bracelet bands, and necklaces with small charms.

Diamonds are another popular option for Virgos. Diamonds are classic, elegant, and have a delightful shade to them. Other white stones will also work in Virgo's favor like quartz and zircon.

When it comes to fashion, Virgo should opt for things that are more yin-based than yang-based. Yin favors roundness, silver, less saturation, modesty, and simplicity. Yang favors squares, gold, oversaturation, high energy, and complexity.

Makeup

To get the right Virgo look, you want to appear natural. Don't crowd your face with a lot of colors and glitter. You want to liberate your face by using less makeup.

Nude lipsticks are your thing as well as very pale pinks. People should question whether you're wearing makeup or not. A little bit of mascara and a light brown eyeshadow will help to give you the natural look you desire.

Buy a foundation that is an exact match to your skin color. Buy blush that is subtle and makes people wonder if you're wearing makeup.

What's more important for Virgo is to buy products that help improve the condition of your skin. Buy lotion and moisturizer. Have a facial routine to keep your skin looking healthy and radiant. You should look fresh and healthy, not like a circus clown or stage performer. Your look makes you appear approachable and down-to-earth.

Neutral makeup colors are your best friend. If it isn't an earth tone, it probably isn't right for you.

Nails/Hands

Keep your nails trimmed and healthy. Clear nail polish is all you need. If you want a touch of color, paint your nails white or beige. Your nails should be short, not long.

Keep your hands moisturized and healthy-looking. Wear jewelry or accessories that are simple, clean-looking, and colorless.

Hair and Hats

Keep your hair trimmed and tamed. Your hair should look healthy and shiny. Go for a natural look rather than something more rockstar or diva-like. Wear your hair in standard styles, like ponytails, pigtails, and buns. For men, your hair should be appropriate for a business meeting. Longer hair should be put up.

Virgo's hair color should look natural. Brown is Virgo's power color, so Virgo embraces brunettes. It's okay if you have red or blonde hair, especially if it's your natural color. Virgo is comfortable with gray hairs, so embrace them.

Wear simple hats like ballcaps or wide-brimmed hats with ribbons. A gardening hat is appropriate for this star sign. Avoid gigantic hats or other headgear that looks ostentatious.

A simple white dress whispers the fashion secrets of Virgo. Add a denim jacket for a little warmth.

Clothes

Virgo wears clothes that are traditional and minimalistic. Don't wear lots of accessories, pick things that are practical, and buy items that will last in your closet for years. A Virgo closet should be clean and organized. It's easy to find what you want, and you don't waste a lot of time trying to pick out an outfit.

Virgo should invest in some nice hangers rather than regular wire hangers or something cheap. This sign isn't one for really showy stuff, but they do like nice stuff that makes their lives easier and comes off mature. Virgo wants to be seen as serious and capable.

Shirts/Tops

Virgo should buy tops, shirts, and the like in solid colors. You want clothes that are easy to put on, look nice, and have no snags. Cashmere, silk, chiffon, cotton, and other gentle fabrics are all suitable. Shirts with buttons can look casual or business smart.

Denim jackets work well for Virgo. Denim is an excellent material that's neutral, so stock up on it. Virgo rules the chest, so you want your shirts to fit correctly and to draw more attention than your pants or shoes.

Buy lots of cardigans and sweaters. Avoid shirts that have no shoulders or single straps. Your shirts shouldn't have anything controversial to them. When in doubt, remember to minimize and keep things simple.

Pants/Bottoms

Bootcut jeans, skinny jeans that aren't too tight, and mom jeans. Your jeans shouldn't be too flashy, you want to look normal and like you can blend into a crowd.

Buy suit pants and get a tailor. You want to look like you're smart and have your crap together. Pants that have holes, stains, bleach spots, or have gone stringy should be donated. Don't buy pants with funky materials, you want to keep things unbiased and unfussy.

Dresses/Skirts

Your dresses should be simple and can work for a variety of occasions. Don't wear something that's too short, too long, too big, or too tight. You have dresses and skirts that are tailor-made. The dresses and skirts should be symmetrical, in basic colors, and have simple design features like buttons and pockets.

When in doubt, you can put on a cardigan, denim jacket, or suit jacket over your dress. A-line, empire, blouson, high waist, and column dresses are all excellent choices. V-necks or turtleneck dresses are great; they both emphasize the neck but in different ways.

Wear basic shoes to give off a Virgo vibe. You should have at least one pair of brown shoes.

Shoes

Limit your shoes down to what you need. Don't have lots of extra shoes for no reason at all. Your shoes should be in basic colors and have basic designs. There shouldn't be a lot of fuss to get your shoes on or off.

You need a pair of sneakers, sandals, dressy shoes, and boots. Don't buy shoes that are wacky, like Crocs. Heels should be small and in a solid color that isn't shocking. Nude, black, and white are the right colors for your heels.
