Astrology is having a major impact in fashion. From Dior’s to J. Crew’s zodiac collections, everyone seems to be asking, “What’s your sign?” Whether you’re as difficult as a Gemini, or as sensitive as a Pisces, here are some tips in incorporating fashion into your zodiac.
♈Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Known for their exciting and energetic nature, an Aries stands out. Sometimes stubborn and confrontational, an Aries has no problem expressing their feelings. They are not afraid to take risks, knowing that the crowd will admire or even envy them. Bold accessories are necessary for this fire sign, such as kitsch-inspired earrings, statement handbags, or anything red. Elevate your look with a pair of white chunky sneakers.
♉Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, which controls love, beauty, and money, but looks beyond superficiality. People under this sign love devotion and things that please the senses. Since they are on a constant quest of comfortability, steer towards things that feel good on the skin. Soft sweatshirts in your favorite color paired with a good quality, long lasting, ripped black jeans will satisfy a Taurus’ sensitivities to texture and comfort. Too simple? Swap the jeans for versatile biker shorts. Don’t shy away from the color green Taurus!
♊Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
This air sign is notorious for being perceived by others as two-faced, as Gemini’s weakness includes indecisiveness and inconsistency. But others fail to realize that Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury, the planet of communication and brotherly love. Geminis put forth maximum effort to maintain relationships. Connect with your inner Gemini by merging your versatility with your style. Don’t be afraid to attempt different looks. Pair your relaxed skater jeans with a feminine top. This air sign is all about lightness. Play around with cream and blush. Or incorporate your interest in art with your wardrobe as you experiment with bold graphic prints.
♋Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
As natural nurturers, Cancers are very connected with their loved ones. They can be very sentimental, sensitive, and are in touch with their emotions. Embrace your sensitivity and let your emotions rule your style. Feeling moody? Try a monochromatic blackout outfit all the way down to your biker boots. On a sunny spring day, veer towards items with primary color blocking. As a water sign, soak in some blue hues, like a pair of blue pinstripe trousers.
♌Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Strong-willed and determined, Leos are at constant work, but rarely take time to decompress. Because of their self confidence and leadership, Leos have trouble accepting others’ ideas and can be stubborn. Take pride in your creativity. As a fire sign, red is your power color. Red sunglasses or a red statement bag will accentuate your powerful personality. Take it to the extreme with a monochrome red outfit, or radiate your warmth in hues of orange and yellow.
♍Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgos tend to stay in their head and analyze themselves and their surroundings. However, Virgos are dedicated, dependable, and will follow through with their plans and promises. Fashion can be a chance to get of your head. Use your analytical side to play with colors and patterns. Stand out in textures of neutral or earthy colors, earth sign. A grey shag or faux fur coat, or brown corduroy pants work well with this sign. Add some green nature-inspired jewelry. Mixing textures, patterns and accessories can bring together an outfit.
♎Libra (September 23 – October 22)
As depicted by a scale, Libras constantly keep a golden mean, staying away from extremities in their lives. When the scale is tipped, they can be uninvolved or bossy. Keep the balance in your life by mixing loud and soft pieces. Metallic jackets look chic over a solid shirt. A matching belt, shoe and earrings are a great way to keep balance while completing a look. Adding white sneakers can dress down any outfit, keeping a casual feel and soothing the fear of tipping the scale.
♏Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Pluto rules the Scorpio. This water sign can seem mysterious or hard to read. They have a magnetic energy and are trend-setters. Like a scorpion, you have a protective outer shell. Shield yourself with a classic denim jacket with your favorite top. Add to your mystery with dark, moody colors, like Navy blue. Pop on a pair oversized sunglasses for a complete look.
♐Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
People under this sign are fast-paced and high energy. They are confident in their abilities to perform, but often overconfident in the results of their performance. Show your confidence in a black turtleneck tucked into a high waisted jean. Make a statement with a cowboy buckle belt. Add a pair of heeled boots and you’ll be ready to rule. As a fire sign, a pop of red or orange into your color palette won’t hurt.
♑Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Hardworking Capricorns always stick to what they know and find comfort in their practices. They are responsible and show incredible self-control. This can cause Capricorns to be condescending to those who do not exhibit those traits. Let your guard down and wear something you usually wouldn’t, like bold patterns. Or, stick to your routine with cozy, earthy colors. A deep green pant with a neutral top is a perfect expression of your sign Capricorn.
♒Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarians are great communicators and have humanitarian-like qualities. Often progressive and open-minded, they love being around different kinds of people and bringing them together. You have a positive energy. With spring right around the corner, you can wear colors that radiate that energy. Try an outfit of one or many pastels. People of air signs look great in light colors. Layering is key due to unpredictable spring weather, so pair with a casual, cool sneaker since you’re always on the go.
♓Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
The Pisces sign is characterized by the fish. This water sign is sensitive in the best and worst ways possible. They also have a deep appreciation for art. Wear the art you love. Whether it be prints or dresses with ruffles, visuals are an important part of your life. Look for sheer fabric, or anything baby blue for an extra ethereal look.
