It’s been a rough few weeks for fans of astrology as NASA shed light on a new Zodiac sign, Ophiuchus, only to turn around and throw some major shade at astrology devotees. Regardless of what you believe, we’re excited to get to know the new star sign. We’re even more excited to imagine what a woman born under Ophiuchus (November 29 – December 17) would wear.  
 
Depictions of Ophiuchus always include some variation of a buff man yielding a serpent. The "snake bearer" of the Zodiac, he is said to be intelligent, flamboyant, highly spirited, and prone to jealousy. With a magnetic personality, Ophiuchus can easily get away with more impulsive behavior. The sign is also said to be a seeker of unity with lots of “big-picture” mantras. 
 
In other words, a 13th Zodiac baby will be a tantalizing, sparkly, high-maintenance tornado.Their taste in fashion would feel very darkly romantic and elegant, with a bit of Vivienne Westwood-style punk sprinkled in; their wardrobe would be sleek but full of texture: think brocade snaking about their shoulders, heavy lace, and jewel tones aplenty. They’d pile on the statement pieces and never shy away from a bold pop of color (or two). 
 
This is definitely a star sign with more than a few sequined bralets and kimonos in closet – we're certain they'd wear lingerie as outerwear à la Kendall Jenner. On her day off, we see an Ophiuchus girl lounging around in one those artfully embroidered blouses by Bruta (the new London brand who sees its fans as "often aloof and individualistic”) while delighting in seeing contestants get kicked-off Top Chef
 
For work, Ophiuchus would favor a long silhouette: a pinstripe pantsuit, anything that draws attention and creates a sinewy form. She’d incorporate lots of rope and crocodile belts and slide on some malachite jewelry. Staples would include solid, dark high-wasted jeans and plenty of bodysuits. She’d insist on layering her favorite pieces to get through the seasons and be the last to hang up her mini-skirt in the fall.
