It’s election season, it’s spooky season, and it’s Scorpio Season - and that kind of sums it all up. In short, Scorpios are intense and sexy and they feel everything twice. Scorpio Season is totally crazy town from October 23rd to November 21st, and we’re ALL feeling this one, so buckle up and read on for our Cold Gold Gift Guide to Scorpio Season.
Scorpios are a complicated bunch - ruled by Mars (God of War) and Pluto (god of the underworld), it’s no surprise that Scorpios are firstly and foremostly dark and deep. With the stinging Scorpion as their animal representation, it’s also no surprise that these water signs are often mistaken for fire signs. Scorpio energy resonates with a strong and quiet power, sensuality, and that classic water sign gift of near-clairvoyant intuition. Scorpios are known to be natural-born leaders, brave, loyal, ambitious, honest, and vengeful, making them excellent friends, but deadly enemies. If you need a shift in perspective or a deep, meaningful conversation, your Scorpio pal is the one to call. Their moody + mysterious ways translate into their physical form and you can often find a Scorpio in a dark, brooding wardrobe of black, fiery red, and deeply saturated jewel tones. (Hellooooo Winona Ryder, yeah girl we mean you.) Other celeb Scorpios include such stars Hillary Clinton, RuPaul, Leo DiCaprio, Tracee Ellis Ross, Adam Driver, Bjork, and (king of broody-moody Scorpio land himself) Drake.
Black, dark black, and darker black are the foundational colors of the Scorpio wardrobe. For Scorpio pals, we recommend starting with a go-to classic: the long bar geo studs in black. These are ride or die earrings, a wear-with-everything accessory that any Scorpio can throw on with any outfit and get on with fearlessly blazing a trail. And we would absolutely die if we saw Hillary rock these with a pantsuit. She’s already got the black and gold combo on lock - it’s always a power move, and Scorpios are all about a power move.
Next up for Scorpios, a little something to represent that strike first, think later, fiery style: the Inferno Earrings in red leather. It’s not by chance that many Scorpios get mislabeled as fire signs - you’ve got to watch out for that stinger. These statement earrings can hold their own with a full dramatic look, and command attention effortlessly like the Scorpio wearing them. Speaking of commanding attention, Rupaul can borrow these earrings anytime.
Black leather has its place in every Scorpio’s sexy, sultry wardrobe, or at least it really should. The black Point Move earrings are the perfect touch of tough and chic to pair with a black moto jacket and jeans (the Scorpio uniform as modeled here by Winona herself). Pair these tough earrings with a black, red, or turquoise leather keychain for the Scorpio with a to do list.
Our final gift recommendation for your Scorpio friend is something a little unexpected (mysterious, even?) - pull your Scorpio friend out of a dark, brooding funk with the Light Trace earrings in Marigold. It’s hard not to feel at least a touch lighter while wearing these! Paired with an all-black outfit, these stunners will stand out and still feel authentically Scorpio. Conveniently, they also pair perfectly with a full-sparkles catsuit moment, a la stylish Scorpio Tracee Ellis Ross.
We hope this gives you some guidance in finding the right gift for your Scorpio pals!
