At M.M.LaFleur, we believe that when women succeed at work, the world is a better place. We design beautiful, office-appropriate clothing that keeps the spotlight on you, and we host intimate events for the remarkable women in our community.
As we slip into summer and the calendar fills up, picking the perfect go-to dress can be head-spinning. So rather than seeing stars, why not let them guide you? We turned to Huy, M.M. stylist and resident astrology enthusiast, for help. He selected the best summer staple for each sun sign. Which one is yours?
Aries (the Ram, March 21-April 19)
As a fire sign, you’re a passionate person and you need a dress that lets you command the room. Your dress: the Annie in crimson. This M.M. classic defines no-fuss chic, taking you smoothly from a heated meeting into a warm summer night.
Taurus (the Bull, April 20-May 21)
You’re traditional and reliable and, perhaps unexpectedly, elegant. Your dress: the Marilyn. Its draped neckline frames the face and the adobe color echoes the down-to-earth nature of this earth sign. Cap sleeves and its mid-calf length keep it all dignified.
Gemini (the Twins, May 21-June 20)
Easy, breezy, and adaptable—you are an air sign for sure. The sign of the twins, you also have a dual nature. Your dress: the Jessica in brushstroke, which comes in two colors and reflects your outgoing personality. Additionally, the twirl-worthy skirt and art-inspired print make the Jessica an ideal fit for your day-to-night needs.
Cancer (the Crab, June 21-July 22)
This water sign signals summer. Your dress: the Ashley in sea glass. Like the ocean, you have depth, and you are deeply in tune with your feelings. Given that your symbol is the crab, you need a durable shell, which is perfectly mimicked in the structure and square neckline of the machine-washable Ashley. In sea glass, the Ashley speaks to your aquatic affinity and emotional intelligence.
Leo (the Lion, July 23-August 22)
You’re fierce and loyal, a no-nonsense, natural-born leader. Your dress: the Sarah, ideal for an eyes-on-the-prize attitude. Understated and sophisticated, the Sarah is the perfect shift dress for your power days. When your sights are set, nothing can stop you.
Virgo (the Virgin, August 23-September 22)
You are modest and keen on detail. Your dress: the subtly intricate Katie, with its flattering fit, strategically placed seams, and textured ponte fabric imported from Italy. The rainforest color is especially pleasing to the Virgo, a nature-loving earth sign.
Libra (the Scales, September 23-October 23)
As a thoughtful and kind person with sociable tendencies, you look for meaning and balance in everything you do. Your dress: the Aditi in crackle, which expresses the harmony you seek. Its classic shape and sleek cut are enhanced by its quirky crackle print—pairing sophistication with personality (much like you do).
Scorpio (the Scorpion, October 23-November 21)
You’re deep, a keeper of secrets and a loyal friend. Your charisma and passion demand a dress that stands the test of time. Your dress: the Hailey, a modern twist on a traditional wrap dress, with roomy pockets. In cerulean, of course, given your water affinity.
Sagittarius (the Archer, November 22-December 21)
You value your freedom and space. As truly independent travelers, Sagittarians need a dress that’s light, breathable, and able to go wherever the wind takes them. Your dress: the Eliza, with its 60s-inspired swing and machine-washable, summer-friendly staccato fabric—a superb selection for a free spirit like you.
Capricorn (the Goat, December 22-January 20)
You’re focused and traditional and have an eye for the finer things (think Charlotte in “Sex and The City”). Polished and well-mannered, a Capricorn appreciates classy, tailored outfits. Your dress: the Evelyn in micro jacquard. Its flattering V-neck frames your face and shoulders, and its cotton fabric from Italy is super luxurious.
Aquarius (the Water-Bearer, January 20-February 19)
As a bright, independent thinker, you’re one-of-a-kind and you need a dress that’s fashion-forward yet practical. Your dress: the Jasmine, a modern take on the traditional wrap dress. This dress has the appearance of an elegant blouse tucked into a skirt but with the ease of a one-piece. The dash print adds flair and keeps things cool and quirky—just like you.
Pisces (the Fish, February 19-March 20)
You’re a wise, old soul, fond of exploration yet also prone to daydreaming. Your dress: the Nanette in baroque print. Its lightweight fabric is effortlessly elegant and the custom print conjures turn-of-the-century Italian tapestry. The Nanette dress is a work of art—and suits your escapist tendencies to a T.
