Aries: Block Heels

When it comes to fashion, Aries want people to notice them. You've got a lot of confidence and flair, and you're not afraid to show it off. But your go-go-go energy means your clothing needs to be functional as well as fun.

That's why a pair of block heels will make a perfect addition to your wardrobe. The chunky wedges will keep you firmly grounded as you power through your day.

Taurus: Kitten Heels

Tauruses aren't known for having a wild and crazy fashion sense. Your wardrobe screams "quiet luxury," which is what makes the kitten heel the right match for you.

The subtle heel makes it perfect to wear with jeans, skirts, or dresses. And they're professional enough to wear to work while being sexy enough for grabbing drinks after hours. An investment piece that'll never go out of style—what more could a Taurus want?

Gemini: Slingbacks

Curious and creative, Geminis are a bit unpredictable, including when it comes to fashion—which means your closet is full of things you haven't worn in years. So, if you're going to buy a new pair of heels, they should be classic and versatile, like slingbacks.

Not only are these shoes incredibly fashionable and flattering, but they also won't hold you back from going about your busy day and many social engagements.

Cancer: Wedges

Cancers like the look of elegance that wearing heels provides, but as a creature of comfort, you don't like how unstable they make you feel.

Wedges still give you the same height and elongating effect as regular heels, but their sturdy soles and supportive ankle straps mean you'll feel comfortable and confident—very important factors when the zodiac's homebody decides to go out on the town.

There's nothing subtle about your style, Leo. You like to add a bit of glitz and glam to any outfit you can. And when it comes to choosing the perfect pair of heels, you're looking for something that will turn heads the moment you walk through the door.

So, grab a pair of platform heels for your next night out. Despite their height, their chunky design means they're easy to walk and dance in—important for a party animal like you!

Virgo: Pumps

Virgos are famous for having impeccable yet effortless style. But as the perfectionist of the zodiac, you like to keep your wardrobe clutter-free, so any new purchases will need to fit into your existing capsule wardrobe.

That's why you can't go wrong with a pair of patent leather pumps. Known for their timeless design and versatility, you might find these shoes making their way into your regular outfit rotation.

As one of the most stylish zodiac signs, Libras see fashion as an opportunity to express themselves. You like clothing with classic design elements, but you're also a sucker for an artistic spin on an old favorite.

That's why we think you'll love the look and feel of d'Orsay heels. Styled like a classic pump but with a stylish side cut-out, these shoes are just the right mix of sexy and sophisticated.

Scorpio: Stilettos

Scorpio is the most sensual zodiac sign. And while your personality is more reserved, your fashion sense isn't, so you need a pair of heels with some edge and flair.

Thanks to their staggering height, stilettos are some of the toughest shoes to wear, but you aren't one to back down from a challenge. Not only will you seriously impress everyone around you in these shoes, but you'll feel super sexy. The only downside to wearing them is that everyone will want your attention.

Free-spirited and adventurous, Sagittarians don't take fashion too seriously. Like most fire signs, your personal style is fueled by passion and creativity. You're spontaneous, so you need a pair of heels that goes well with anything.

That's why we think you'll love a pair of fun and flirty peep-toe heels. Add your own personal touch with a brightly colored pedicure or even a toe ring.

Capricorn: Strappy Heels

Capricorns are known for being some of the best-dressed and classiest people around. You might not be the most daring in your fashion choices, but you'll always look well put together.

That's why you can't go wrong with a pair of simple strappy heels. They're not too fussy, but the delicate straps add a bit of sex appeal, giving you the perfect mix of flair and function.

Inventive and imaginative, nobody has a more unique style than an Aquarius. You tend to find your favorite pieces buried in a rack at the thrift store, and when it comes to footwear, you'd rather just go barefoot. You love the feeling of being free!

But more than that, you love shocking people, which is why we think you should get yourself a pair of sexy, high-heeled booties. They'll make a big statement and add something a little different to your outfits.

Pisces: Lace-Up Heels

Pisces are dreamy and romantic, and your style certainly reflects that. You're drawn to natural materials, flowing fabrics, and whimsical designs that make you feel like you're in a fairytale.

That's why we recommend lace-up heels. They have a soft, feminine look on their own, but finding a pair in a pretty pastel color is even better.
