Choosing the right handbag for your collection isn’t exactly a science. Also not science? Astrology. But much like collecting handbags, exploring what your zodiac sign might reveal about your personality is a ton of fun. You may not know it yet, but your obsession with top handle satchels or crossbody bags may be totally out of your control. Your zodiac sign can actually offer up some uncannily accurate answers as to why you carry the bags you do, whether you read your daily horoscope or not.
We’ve taken the joy of mapping sun signs to their handbag counterparts based on the traits of both the handbags and the personality that will be carrying them. Whether you’re a zodiac sign skeptic or someone that reads their horoscope regularly, we think anyone could use an excuse to bring another handbag home. So, what’s your sign?
Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)
There’s nothing a Capricorn loves more than working hard for success. You are accomplished and sophisticated, so you gravitate toward classics with a twist. You need a bit of a challenge, but you also want to know that there’s a great payoff waiting for you at the end. You love the finer things in life, but don’t want something too flashy. So go ahead, get yourself a Louis Vuitton Capucines MM Bag, Capricorn. You know you have the determination to afford it. The Louis Vuitton Capucines in Taurillon leather will be your workhorse bag and you will look effortlessly chic while carrying it.
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
You love to be unconventional and refuse to play by anybody else’s rules, Aquarius. You are out of this world, and you’re very…. out there, in general. You favor fun, innovation, and intellectualism. As far as handbags go, you are averse to logos and love to have your hands free, so for you, we recommend a Mansur Gavriel Mini Mini Bucket Bag, which will develop a patina as you use it, making this bag one-of-a-kind for you.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
As the most chill and free-spirited sign of the zodiac, a Pisces deserves to have a handbag that’s going to be as easy-going as you are. Since you were born for the life aquatic, you obviously need a good beach bag. Named after Coco Chanel’s favorite seaside resort town in France, Deauville, the Chanel Deauville tote is an ideal companion from the pool to the beach, and everywhere in between. You are empowered by texture, so this canvas tote will appeal to your stars.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
As an Aries, there’s not much that holds you back, and you love making a bold statement. You are creative and cool when it comes to fashion, but you need something low maintenance to go with your busy get-it-done life. Your go-to bag is low-key but still fashion-forward. You gravitate towards a bag that boosts your self-confidence, but love a versatile bag that will help you run between errands, meetings, and more. For you, we recommend a brightly colored Hermes Evelyne Bag, the perfect crossbody bag in a bold color with a bold perforated H design and a canvas crossbody strap. Easy, effortless, and super cute.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
Nobody knows passion and devotion like a Taurus, so you’re actually the perfect zodiac sign to take on a Chanel Quilted Lambskin Leather Classic Jumbo Double Flap Bag. In classic beige, a Chanel Classic Flap bag is understated and sophisticated. You know pampering is your favorite activity, so this beauty is perfect for you: its luxurious (and high maintenance) lambskin leather will stay looking new as long as your care for her.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
Gemini, you’re totally unpredictable. You are known as the most fashionable of all the signs. You’re not afraid to stand out, so Gucci seems like a natural fit for you, Gemini. G for Gemini, two G’s for twins–this pair is definitely written in the stars. The Gucci GG Supreme Coated Canvas Broche Small Top Handle Bag would be the perfect match for you. This cute top handle is over the top with a bold fox emblem, and features the symmetrical details your sign craves.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
Cancer, both a water sign and a natural nurturer, will want a handbag that will seamlessly become part of your routine. An independent and occasionally impatient Aries will get along great with a super durable, crossbody style: the Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene Canvas Speedy Bandouliere 30 Bag. The Damier Ebene model has brown leather that won’t stain easily, so you two self-sufficient souls can go all over the place without cramping each others style. You need a trusty bag that’s going to stick with you for years and years; this bag will be your closest companion.
Leo (July 23 to August 22)
Leos are all about making a statement, and you love structure. Leo’s regal energy is a magnet for everything people, children, games, projects. You’ll find a good match in the captivating Louis Vuitton Limited Edition Golden Arrow Speedy Bag. Its classic design in Monogram canvas is elevated with contrasting black leather and an oversized buckle. This unique design is slightly different from the Speedy bag that everyone has, and it has the details you crave. People will gravitate toward you when you carry this bag–be prepared for many “I love your bag!” comments from strangers.
Virgo (August 23 to September 22)
Your practical, analytical Virgo sign means you need something functional that helps you stay organized. You need a bag that’s sturdy and work-appropriate for your day-to-day use, but something that can be a little fun, too. Ambitious Virgo, you need a structured tote with a top handle can carry all your necessary items, so we’re suggesting a chic, structured Prada Saffiano Top Handle Tote. With ample pockets, several interior compartments for organization, and a shoulder strap, this bag will be your go-to.
Libra (September 23 to October 22)
Libras are known to love the finer, classic things in life, so any garden-variety handbag just won’t do. You favor any design that’s structured and symmetrical, so for you, we’re suggesting a classic: the Kelly. Your relationship-centered sign might like the social lore of the Hermes Kelly, used by Princess Grace Kelly to hide her pregnant belly in paparazzi photos.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)
You’re intense and tough, Scorpio, and you expect everything else to be too. Your perfect handbag is a Valentino Rockstud Glam Lock Flap Bag: dark, edgy, luxurious, but still practical and useful. A bag with studs or spikes will amp up the fierce and edgy factor of your look instantly.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
There is no other sign in the zodiac that’s more obsessed to travel than the Sagittarius; you’ll need a handbag that can handle life while you take your stints around the world. Not only that, but you love dancing to the beat of your own drum, which means any tote won’t do. For you, we recommend the Saint Laurent Black Leather Large Shopping Tote Bag.
