  In Your Element: According to Thierry, each zodiac sign is associated with one of the five elements --  fire, metal, earth, water and wood. Each element can boost or harm one's luck, health, career, relationships and so on. Thus, in Feng Shui, striking the perfect balance (in relation to each zodiac sign, birth date and time) is one of the absolute keys. Putting this theory to work, in terms of fashion, we've put together several key points to help balance out your elements.  

As a rule of thumb:

Metal compliments Water; Water compliments wood; Wood compliments fire; fire compliments earth; earth compliments water. Refer to your zodiac sign to find out what element compliments you best! 

  Metal
Celine Sally Lapointe George Jenson
Ralph Lauren Chloé  Judith Leiber
Anything white, silver or gold is associated with the metal element, as well as circular objects. Objects such as mirror, scissors or even decorative swords can boost the metal energy, which symbolises wealth and fortune.   Wood
Alice + Olivia Veronica Beard Hunting Season
Gucci Celine  Dolce & Gabbana
Believe it or not, the colour green is also associated with the element 'wood', alongside the obvious wooden colour choices. For home decor, adding wooden furniture or figurines, and books or magazines could help boost growth and symbolises kindness.     Water
Balenciaga Chloé Celine
Escada Christian Dior  Isabel Marant
Weird as it sounds, black is a 'water' colour along with the obvious shade -- blue. Fish tanks, swimming pools or even a depiction of water can increase your water energy, so if you can't afford a swimming pool at your backyard, you know you always have backups!    Fire
Diane Von Furstenberg Ralph Lauren Alexander McQueen
Gianfranco Ferre Helmut Lang  Tory Burch
What can better represent the fire element than reds, oranges and pink? Not into bold monotone outfits? Try wearing red or pink underwear! The element is known to boost passion, love, joy, but too much of it can lead to frustration, aggression and vanity.    Earth
3.1 Phillip Lim Chloé Balmain
Carven Gianni Versace  Oscar De La Renta
As you may able to tell, yellow and tan are the obvious representatives of the Earth energy. Other these two colours, ceramics, stones and dogs are the more subtle options for boosting the energy. Adding the earth element to your style and home can bring supportive energy, ground and stabilise unbalanced energy. So if you're feeling scattered and anxious, it might be a good idea to invite more of the earth element into your daily life.
