What's Your Sign?

Creative Director Joe Zee teams up with fashion’s favorite astrologer, Susan Miller, to get a reading on what you’ll be wearing circa 2011. Take their advice: Don’t get dressed without it!

SCORPIO Oct 23–Nov 21

Susan’s Take: Sensuous, sleek, and authoritative, Scorpio keeps life simple with a few well-cut, smart “uniforms.”

Joe’s Take: Scorpio has a reputation as the sex sign, so we accentuated ELLE photo assistant Louisa Parkinson’s amazing legs with cutoffs, but kept her top more modest and carefree—it’s flirty without the big reveal.


LIBRA Sept 23–Oct 22

Susan’s Take: Libra is polished, well-groomed; being supersocial also makes her trendy and creative.

Joe’s Take: It’s also the sign of balance and scales, and ELLE photo producer Julie Hammond works with budgets all day. To keep balance in her personal style, too, we chose elegant but extremely stylish menswear—and no crazy accessories.


VIRGO Aug 23–Sept 22

Susan’s Take: Virgo wants things to be productive, multifunctional; she appreciates tailoring, beautiful embellishments, and a solid investment.

Joe’s Take: In this crisp jacket and trousers, Rebecca Gordon, a professional astrologer, is practical, meticulous, detailed—here, every button, zipper, and seam makes a difference.


LEO July 23–Aug 22

Susan’s Take: Leo’s style reflects her healthy ego and major confidence. With her, nothing is halfhearted.

Joe’s Take: Female Leos are quite a bunch: headstrong, take-no-prisoners (see: Madonna, J.Lo). Graphic designer Stephanie Jones rocks a ’70s-inspired military jumpsuit—another big trend next spring—with killer heels.


CANCER June 22–July 22

Susan’s Take: Cancer adores girly, ultrafemme shapes and soft, beautiful fabrics.

Joe’s Take: Cancer is also considered the domestic sign. Since fashion publicist Kelly Ricci is always on the hunt for a look that’s both professional and fashion-savvy, we chose this cute print. It’s chic, elegant, and decor-inspired, reminding us of the comforts of home.


GEMINI May 21–June 21

Susan’s Take: Ruled by Mercury, Gemini—considered the smart and versatile planet—has a fashion editor’s eye.

Joe’s Take: The ultimate dual-personality sign! By day, Angela Bliumis is a hardworking ELLE assistant with a pared-down look, but her after-hours style is far more adventurous. This color-block dress is a 180-degree turn from her daywear.


TAURUS Apr 20–May 20

Susan’s Take: A Taurus, like Amy Zalneraitis, cofounder of Giftgenius.com, loves body-con clothing that shows off her killer figure. The “bull” sign likes to shop more than any other, but spends wisely.

Joe’s Take: It’s tough to get these stubborn types out of a style rut. The simple solution: chic classics that don’t date or scream but do mix and match.


ARIES Mar 21–Apr 19

Susan’s Take: Aries is an early adopter who adds her own twist to what’s new. She loves color and clean, dramatic lines.

Joe’s Take: Aries is constantly on the lookout for the next big thing. Makeup artist Tracy Alfajora bravely takes on the new fit ‘n‘ flare skirt shape that just popped up on Prada’s spring runway. Note: A shorter hemline makes this shape work.


PISCES Feb 19–Mar 20

Susan’s Take: Pisces puts her look together eclectically, the way a costume designer might dress an actor. She’s soft, feminine, and dreamy, and loves her fabrics the same way.

Joe’s Take: I find Pisces women so calming—perhaps it’s the naturalness with which they approach life. I wanted FIT student Aisha Allahi’s dress to convey the water-sign idea of floating through life. This diaphanous, tiered blue print feels elegant yet casual. Yes, she’s dressed up—Pisces love to dress up—but she doesn’t look stiff or matronly.


AQUARIUS Jan 20–Feb 18

Susan’s Take: The individualistic, independent Aquarius woman is always ahead of the fashion pack. Others may find her look shocking at first but they’ll end up copying her every move.

Joe’s Take: Unconventional, individual, and unwavering. Aquarius shuns black, classic shapes, and anything run-of-the-mill. Case in point: An assistant principal of an NYC public school, Jamie Watkins has an exuberant personality that pointed us toward a dress that’s loud and new—but still sophisticated, given the print and the lean, one-shoulder silhouette. She’s certainly not going to miss out on the fun.


CAPRICORN Dec 22–Jan 19

Susan’s Take: Capricorn’s look is well-bred, understated. Like Prada’s New York City store manager Chi Kim, Capricorns always manage to look like they come from wealth—the old-money kind—even if they don’t.

Joe’s Take: There’s a silent-killer quality with a Capricorn. She’s grounded, secure, practical. There’s not a lot of fuss in her style, but it’s never sloppy or drab; a true Cap will put an intelligent spin on the simplest basic. For Chi, we paired a simple fitted top (nipped jacket, men’s shirt), with high-waisted jersey harem pants—a little twist that makes a big difference.


SAGITTARIUS Nov 22–Dec 21

Susan’s Take: Fresh-faced and natural, Sagittarius prefers elegant, relaxed, and unpretentious clothing that allows for ease and speed—she’s on the go!

Joe’s Take: I’m a Sagittarius and always rushing from place to place (or plane to plane), so I have to be ready to roll at all times. Like PR assistant Emily Gambir, I never want to look too done up. Emily’s classic trench, white T-shirt, and black leather pants (all of which I also own, minus the leather) get her where she needs to go without drowning her out. Sag has enough to say without her clothes speaking too.

MARIA ANTOINETTE

Ciao My Lovely Readers! Marie Antoinette trades Versailles for Los Angeles in the latest Wildfox lookbook. Wildfox Couture seriously takes the cake when it comes to seasonal lookbooks, and the California knitwear brand outdid itself with the Spring 2011 offering. Starring Naty Chabanenko as Marie Antoinette, the book illustrates her untold story, which involves running away from King Louis in France to take a holiday in Los Angeles with her sisters (even the Queen could use a vacation every now and then). Enjoy!

BLUE & CREAM


Samantha Greenes, head womenswear buyer:

Camilla Skovgaard shaved pony wedge mule
This British footwear designer makes wearable shoes for fashion forward girls. Her rubber jagged edge saw sole was a sellout for spring 2010 and for fall she did a fabulous shaved pony wedge mule wit the same sole. These should fly right off the shelves at The Bowery boutique.


Aminaka Wilmot short-sleeve drape dress
British designer duo Maki Aminaka and Marcus Wilmont created one of my favorite collections for fall. Creative and colorful prints with drapey body conscious silhouettes are right on trend for fall. In particular, the leaves print is to die for.


A.L.C. hooded moto jacket
Andrea Lieberman Carter is making some of the most wearable wardrobe essentials this fall. I particularly love her twist on the popular moto jacket from last season- she added a hood! I think every NYC fashionista definitely needs this staple piece in her closet.


3.1 Phillip Lim Bowery Bootie
We are very excited to be debuting Phillip Lim's women's footwear collection and I am in love with The Bowery Booty. Although they will be featured at our Easthampton boutique, the name is a tribute to the Manhattan neighborhood I love most.


"Spurr" by Simon Spurr tees and cashmere sweaters
2010 CFDA best menswear designer nominee Simon Spurr will be launching "Spurr" for fall 2010. The line will consist of basic bestselling denim and tees from the main collection.We areexcited to be one of the only locations to be carrying both the higher end collection "Simon Spurr" as well the diffusion line "Spurr". I love to buy his super soft tees and cashmere sweaters in extra small size.
