Aries 

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

  • One of the most dynamic and exciting signs, you’re ready to break new ground and make original things happen. Your signatures are sleek and streamlined pieces as well as fun accessories. You’re confident enough without needing the power of clothes to build you up. So for Valentine’s, wear something that helps you feel more relaxed and comfortable.

In a relationship: You’re a busy bee but your sign’s usually good at making your partner feel number one. Spend quality time with your dearest and you’ll be well rewarded.

Single: You know you have several admirers, but right now you’re probably too busy to commit properly.

Your dress:

Taurus

(Apr 20 – May 20)

  • A talented dresser and not afraid to stand out from the crowd, you’re all about bold pieces and bold accessories. You’re fashion forward and love to make a statement. However, you still favour comfort in your fashion, so you’re most confident in styles that have form and function.
  • In a relationship: You’re naturally a loyal and committed partner, so Valentine’s Day is going to be sweet and smooth. You might even get some good news or an extra special gift!
  • Single: You’re likely to meet someone you share a lot of common traits with. However, your loving and resourceful side will conflict and you’ll be unsure whether it will be a romantic relationship or a business partnership.
  • Your dress:

Gemini

(May 21 – Jun 20)

  • A risk-taker and head-turner, you’re ready to experiment with your style and would never settle for simple. You often manage to reap great sartorial rewards for this. You hardly ever wear the same thing twice and love getting new ideas. For Valentine’s you’ll be on trend, but switching it up a little bit with your usual experimenting is going to make you very popular.
  • In a relationship: There could be some rough patches to get through before V-day, but stay cool and it will end in celebration.
  • Single: You have a tendency to flirt and string along, but try not to give too much false hope!

Cancer

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

  • Constantly keeping it poised with a refined sense of style, you might be the most dressed up in the room but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. People will often be envious rather than critical of the way you look. You’re most confident in an artistic and timeless piece with a relaxed silhouette and feel. You enjoy an opportunity to dress up, so have some fun with that this Valentine’s. That flashy twist you like adding to your style will work well on a date – showing this side of you will add a spark to the romance.
  • In a relationship: Keep up the good relations, but this time take extra care to choose your date location! As usual, you’ll try to dress to suit this location too.
  • Single: You might be seeing someone with a high profile. Your sartorial charms will find this no problem, but be aware that there will be others trying to compete.
  • Your dress:
Louis Vuitton Printed Fine Pleats Dress with Knotted Detail. Available at Louis Vuitton. Locations: Siam Paragon, M Floor, Rama I Road, Bangkok, 10330 (10am-10pm).

Leo

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

  • Notorious for your headstrong, loving, and humorous personality, you’re unafraid about trying new styles and can trust your own gut when dressing up. Your zest for love and life will shine through in your style this Valentine’s Day either through a head-to-toe head-turning outfit, or a fiery statement piece. You can’t go wrong showing off your bold side through your style on V-day: if it works, it’ll show your stand-out luminosity. If not, it’ll show your bravery and good sense of humour.
  • In a relationship: You two may have a Valentine’s day at a location you’ve never been before, but you’ll be glad about the results and the new memories that will be made.
  • Single: There are several admirers and potential partners around you but you’re probably not going to go steady with any of them soon. For now, there’s nothing wrong with just keeping it relaxed and fun (if you know what we mean…) because you’re at a peak point in your life for mingling.
  • Your dress:
Vatanika Dobby Weave Backless Minidress. Available at Vatanika. Locations: Central Chidlom, Level 2, Rama I Road, Bangkok, 10330 (10am-10pm). Siam Paragon, Level 1, Rama I Road, Bangkok, 10330 (10am-10pm). Emquartier, Level 2, 639 Sukhumvit Road, Bangkok, 10110 (10am-10pm). THB 14,000.

Virgo

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

  • Your style is ladylike and grown-up, always noticeable but never overdone. You’re very good at knowing how to work your strong points with fashion, and this will be a big attraction point to you on date night. You’re a stunning lady in red. Take advantage of your power colours, red and ivory, which also happen to be ideal for Valentine’s.
  • In a relationship: Your date night will be sweet and comforting, but it might be best organising a special night staying in.
  • Single: Stay alert! Someone could be feigning interest in you… So, forget about them and have fun with some girlfriends instead.  
  • Your dress:
Kate Spade Rose Lace Dress. Available at Kate Spade. Locations: Siam Paragon, M Floor, Rama I Road, Bangkok 10330 (10am-10pm). Emquartier, G Floor, 639 Sukhumvit Road, Bangkok 10110 (10am-10pm). Central World, Level 1, Rama I Road, Bangkok, 10330 (10am-10pm). THB 14,396.

Libra

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

  • You’re quite the modern woman, so your classic pieces often have an edge to them. Never afraid to go to the darker side of your wardrobe, you feel most confident and sexy in your blacks, navies, and burgundies. Your modernity and edginess shines through in leather, studs, and metallic colours or texture. But, this Valentine’s, balance the look with your softer and romantic side with velvet, silk, or lace.
  • In a relationship: You might sometimes give the impression you take your partner for granted. Take the time to show your appreciation this Valentine’s.
  • Single: Because you’re being such a pro at work, romance will have to be a weaker side for you this year…

Scorpio

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

  • A creature of habit, you like sticking to your close favourites when dressing up. But because you’re a mysterious creature with a knack for looking put together 24/7, don’t be afraid to add a sense of that mystery in your outfit too. You have a signature outfit that you feel most confident in. There’s nothing wrong with sticking to it, but remember to make it interesting by playing up your mysteriousness.

  • Single: Someone, or some people will be finding your intelligence and the way you carry yourself attractive.

Sagittarius

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

  • Timeless classics with a touch of unexpected femininity are your thing. You love a good laugh and your style is clean and unfussy. Polished, but not prim. This Valentine’s your usual polished and feminine looks will look great with statement accessories or a bold silhouette. Being a fire sign, you’re naturally full of positive energy but can also pair this with an intellectual side. Your style should show off both these traits.
  • In a relationship: You’re getting along better and better so it’s as if Valentine’s has already started for you two. A new milestone is about to be reached.
  • Single: You may find some attraction to someone younger or less experienced, which will be fun for a time, but let’s face it – it probably won’t last long.
  • Your dress:
  • Chloé Cream Lace-Trimmed Silk Dress. Available at Chloé. Locations: Emporium, M Floor, 622 Sukhumvit Road, Bangkok, 10110 (10am-8pm). THB 65,789.

Capricorn

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

  • A Capricorn loves getting dressed up, but always in something comfortable. Your style is sophisticated while keeping it cosy and movable because this gives you the most confidence. You’re into pieces with quality craftsmanship, understated status, and tradition. People might see your style as bold and unusual, but this is all very much a compliment to you, especially when you wear your pieces with such confidence.
  • In a relationship: This Valentine’s you’ll have more privacy and intimacy with your partner than usual. Dress to this occasion.
  • Single: You’ll be surprised to spend time with someone quite eccentric, and get inspired by their charming strangeness.

Givenchy Zig-Zag Pleated Dress. Available at Givenchy. Locations: Siam Paragon, M Floor, Rama I Road, Bangkok 10330 (10am-10pm). Central Embassy, G Floor, Rama I Road, Bangkok 10330 (10am-9pm). THB 58,000.

Aquarius

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

  • Adventurous and rebellious in style, an Aquarius doesn’t back away from bold prints, colours, or cuts. You’re progressive, original, independent, and creative. You’re always willing to trying new things in fashion and enjoy dressing up because it often means you’re about to go out and do something fun. However, there’s also a laid-back vibe about you and you often end up with a look that is effortlessly cool. 
  • In a relationship: You could be feeling quite stressed out around Valentine’s Day, so be sure to channel your energies into dressing up, no matter what happens.
  • Single: Maybe not a serious relationship, but having a friend with benefits could be on the cards.

  • Michael Kors Cold Shoulder Ribbed Metallic Black and Gold Dress. Available at Michael Kors. Locations: Emquartier, Level 1, 639 Sukhumvit Road, Bangkok 10110 (10am-10pm). ICONSIAM, Level 1, 299 Charoen Nahkorn Road, Bangkok, 10600 (10am-10pm). THB 9680.

Pisces

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

  • You’re a free-spirit at heart so you like adding a whimsical flourish to your outfits. Fun-loving and good-humoured, you look and feel your best in flowing silhouettes with an easy-breezy vibe. Your Valentine’s outfit will naturally have a subtle sexiness, but play your strengths by including something whimsical and carefree too.
  • In a relationship: You may have already been enjoying a few extra romantic dates so for actual Valentine’s Day,
  • Single: Single, but definitely not lonely. Although, you could be asked out by someone you meet through work-related settings.
