AIRES (March 20 – April 19)
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and likes to be first. Unafraid of the limelight, you enjoy cutting-edge fashion and will always be the first to try upcoming trends – even if you’re ahead of your time.
Ruled by Mars, Aries is a fiery, strong and independent sign, commonly associated with the colour red.
Opt for strong colours and bold patterns in your wardrobe to be at one with your astrological sign – or on the other end of the spectrum, go for ever-stylish monochrome. After all, you’re also pragmatic and decisive and tend to see things in black and white.
Every sign of the zodiac rules a body part, with Aries ruling the head, so don’t be afraid to experiment with a hat or headband to really bring your outfit together.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
The Taurus sign is associated with beauty and comfort, synonymous with earthy tones, florals and natural fibres.
Taureans possess refined senses and revel in luxury, so the texture of their clothing is very important – think silks, cotton, linen and eco-viscose. Opt for loose shapes and natural textures to feel at one with nature, putting comfort above all else!
In terms of the body, Taurus rules the neck and shoulders, so a statement necklace, sophisticated scarf or statement earrings will be the added detail you need to finish off any outfit.
Of all the signs, you understand that what you wear must be comfortable, stylish and leave room for an evening meal. Last of all, Taurus is arguably the sign that takes the longest to get ready, so a capsule wardrobe might be the solution for you – smaller selection, intentional purchasing and ultimately, more joy.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini outfits must be low maintenance because they are always on the move, Francesca suggested leather jackets as a way to effortlessly transition a look from morning until evening. Stock image
Mercury-ruled Gemini is always changing its mind and therefore enjoys experimenting with their style.
Gemini understands that style is just another form of communication or expression, so they want to look the part in the gym, at a work event, at a children’s party, on holiday, at a festival and even on a dog walk. Their ability to pull off any look communicates their ability to adapt, fit in and connect with absolutely everyone, no matter the circumstance.
That being said, quicksilver Gemini must be agile, to get from A to B as quickly as possible and to keep up momentum. Your fail-safe is a staple pair of trainers – and you can style them with virtually any look for that added versatility. Your outfits must be low maintenance because you’re always on the move, so pieces such as wide-leg trousers, midi-dresses and leather jackets are key to effortlessly transition a look from morning until evening.
And Gemini rules the hands – so don’t forget your rings!
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer is ruled by the moon, so when it comes to tones, you will always have a special place in your heart for that striking all white look. However, just as the moon cycle refreshes each month, Cancerians like to keep up with ever-evolving trends – refreshing their wardrobe regularly to keep up to date.
As the moon is connected with the past, you like your clothes to hold a little bit of history. You therefore have a keen eye for vintage clothing, and love to preserve those you already own. In terms of accessories, Cancerians tend to gravitate towards unique antique silver jewellery as the moon is silver and connects Cancerians with a love of the precious metal.
As a sign that flourishes with change, Cancerians could benefit from seeking out new items to add to their pre-existing vintage wardrobes. By weaving in newness, the much loved items will get a new lease of life and the additions will fast become long-lasting staples.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Ruled by the Sun, Leo shines brightly and confidently and opts for bold patterns, vibrant colours and never takes their heels off. Stock image
Ruled by the Sun, Leo shines brightly and confidently. With your powerful presence, you should seek out bold patterns, vibrant colours and textured fabrics.
It’s usually easy to spot a Leo with their fashion choices – you take pride in your appearance, and however you style yourself will get you noticed.
You don’t follow trends for the sake of it either; instead, you’ll select key statement pieces that last season after season.
Leo is the sign least interested in comfort because presence is everything. On a hot summer day, the heels remain on, and the style doesn’t drop even a notch.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo is ruled by Mercury and together they are connected with all things neat and refined. This culminates in a wardrobe full of subtlety and simplicity – we’re talking clean lines, natural fabrics, block colours and no branding in sight.
You turn to delicate jewellery for a personal touch, but don’t be fooled – while it may look minimalist, plenty of thought has gone into your look!
Virgo pays close attention to detail, and tends to pick out the purest and finest in design.
Clever and frugal – but without compromising on quality – you’ll find Virgo in a designer outlet seeking out branded bargains. Failing that, you are the master of the capsule wardrobe, where every item of clothing works as hard as you do!
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Libras opt for a classic style often choosing to wear neutral colours and monochrome and love tapered trousers, to crisp shirts. Stock image
Harmonious Libra is the sign concerned with relating to others. Valuing good manners, they understand that an impeccable dress sense is just another way of being considerate to others.
Rather than following trends, Libras opt for a classic style. This is the archetypal person who wears neutral colours and monochrome, almost too well for the rest of us.
From tapered trousers, to crisp shirts and an attention to detail that most of us can only dream of. From the shoes to the collar, everything is picture perfect and demonstrates a true flair for design.
Libras are drawn to the classic Scandi style, where pops of colour are perfectly minimalist, and neutrals are key.
You are a diplomat, presenting yourself as fair, balanced and well-refined with a consistent style that articulates your love of peace and harmony.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio appreciates a darker, sultry style. Whether it’s a leather jacket, oversized t-shirt, abundance of layered jewellery or big black biker boots, your style is bold.
Scorpio is often dubbed the ‘sexiest’ sign of the zodiac, so you’re likely not impartial to an LBD, and know how to accessorise, adding extra detail and the finishing touches that demonstrate your flair and magnetism.
Knowledge is power for Scorpios – they’re reluctant to give away their mood, so often sport sunglasses to hide behind.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Not known for being a wallflower, Sagittarius is drawn to bright colours, patterns and all things exotic. Keeping the wardrobe fresh, they experiment with new styles, colourful accessories and garments that show off the body. Sagittarius is ruled by the hips and thighs – so keep your silhouette in mind when you’re on the hunt for new items.
Ruled by Jupiter, the biggest planet in our solar system, Sagittarius is all about maximalism. Over summer, for example, they’d likely sport a stunning maxi dress, bold shades and attention-grabbing footwear.
Take inspiration from Italian designers, where bold print and colour ruled the runways this year, with a glamorous 80’s twist.
A keen traveller, you enjoy mixing items you bought on your travels with your current wardrobe – bright and original pieces that show the world that you are a broad-minded explorer with a few stories to tell!
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
Capricorns are known for choosing dark suits, classic tailoring and outfits that never go out of style. Stock image
Ruled by Saturn, Capricorn is a fan of keeping up appearances. Saturn is formal, respects authority, loves structure and is always smart.
Think dark suits, classic tailoring and outfits that never go out of style. Capricorn is immaculate, and you show your self-discipline and reserved nature through the way you dress.
Dark colours, traditional suiting and a smart appearance is the hallmark of Capricorn, whose demeanour says ‘capable and in control’ like no other. Capricorn likes to look sophisticated, whether they are at a festival, the school gates, or on holiday.
Continue to keep it classic and never forget that less is more – think form-fitting lines and traditional tailoring to create timeless outfits that turn heads.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
Aquarius is ruled by both Saturn and Uranus, so whilst you appreciate a more mature style, you will also veer towards the contemporary. Saturn is sensible and classic (the ruler of Capricorn), while Uranus is the unconventional rebel who wants to break free from the constrictions and expectations of society.
There are two sorts of Aquarians, those who are smart but may accidentally wear odd socks, and those who flout convention entirely and do their own thing.
Ahead of your time, you can appear quite rebellious. You are drawn to aquamarine and turquoise and lean to dressing quite androgynously – so opt for a slouchy jean or oversized blazer for an effortless Aquarius look.
Loungewear is now stylish thanks to the pandemic, but Aquarius style has always been to ‘wear what I want, when I want’. While Aquarius likes a trend, they’ll have a distinctive taste and won’t blend in, preferring designers with a rebellious aesthetic.
PISCES (February 20 – March 19)
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down? Pisces is the most difficult sign to categorise. Neptune the dreamweaver is your planetary ruler, so you likely enjoy floaty, comfortable attire that gives an indication of your open and generous nature.
You can fit in anywhere – your ability to notice subtle detail and your creative tendencies will lead you to your own personal style.
The pisces style is also romantic. Think floaty dresses, palazzo pants, linen shirts, kaftans and beaded jewellery. You belong by the beach, and your dress sense communicates your chilled approach to life.
Pisces rules the feet, so make sure you have a good pair of shoes to keep you grounded. That being said, Pisces are very fond of remaining barefoot!
As a Piscean, you prefer to daydream than to spend the day scouring the shops for new items, so consider handing over the shopping reins to an expert personal stylist. They will take the pressure off your shoulders and select long-lasting items that will fit effortlessly into your existing wardrobe.
