— Glamour magazine put Greg Polkosnik's "Cosmically Chic" fashion predictions to the test.

According to Polkosnik, Aquariuses are supposed to look good in electric blue and gravitate toward sexy skirts and high-heeled boots.

That jibes with the taste of Suzanne Yalof Schwartz, the magazine's executive fashion director.

"It has to work for the people who work here for it to be in the magazine," Yalof Schwartz says.

After reviewing all 12 signs of the zodiac and their fashion tendencies, Yalof Schwartz said every hot look was represented, proving that there is something for everyone.

"We're opening our eyes that not everything is your taste, but it is somebody's taste and there may be a reason for it."

The magazine's January issue puts together a signature outfit for each sign.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The look: tailored pieces with a hint of sex appeal. The outfit: a red, mandarin-collar, belted jacket, tweed-like pants and an elegant watch.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The look: a mixture of unexpected pieces. The outfit: an electric-blue top with metallic dots, a white patterned leather skirt and camel-colored high-heeled boots.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20). The look: romantic dresses that blur the line between sweet and sultry. The outfit: a delicate pink satin shift with low-heeled mules and a handbag of several pastel colors.

Aries (March 21-April 20). The look: minimal, pared-down styles. The outfit: a sleeveless predominantly cornflower-blue turtleneck, camel pants and strappy platinum sandals.

Taurus (April 21-May 21). The look: sensual clothing that feel and look good. The outfit: a rose-colored turtleneck, off-white leather pants and a colorful beaded choker.

Gemini (May 22-June 21). The look: a mix of athletic details, airy fabrics and energetic colors. The outfit: a team-inspired, numbered T-shirt, low-slung red pants and red sneakers.
