Though our closets might be filled to the brim with both impulse-buys and staples we’ve had for years, figuring out how to pair our favorite pieces with new and trendy finds can be difficult. No matter how much of a true fashionista you are, occasionally we all need a little bit of inspiration—and what better way to find it than by looking to the stars? Putting together a summer outfit based on your zodiac sign is a fun way to combine a love of all things fashion with a zodiac obsession. If you take love and life advice from your horoscope, you might as well take some style advice, too!
Whether you buy into the zodiac or not, there’s no denying that horoscopes are just plain fun. So, even if you’re a skeptic, you might want to check your sign’s perfect outfit just in case. (You never know!) Each sign has different traits we can look at to decide their ideal summer look—and how they might style the latest trends. For instance, a Taurus will likely opt for something that looks expensive and luxe, and a moon-aligned Cancer will want to try out all the current trending pieces. Are you curious yet?
While we don’t necessarily recommend making big decisions based on your zodiac sign choosing a new outfit or doing a little shopping? Sure. There’s no harm in that! A zodiac sign-inspired summer outfit is a fun way to show off your personality and affinity for reading horoscopes that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. You can garner some outfit inspiration or even treat yourself to new summery piece that’s based on your sign—rather than, say, a new car—without regretting the decision later.
So go forth and discover the summer outfit you should totally wear based on your zodiac sign below. From Aries to Pisces, you’ll find some street style inspiration and ways to shop each and every outfit. Be sure to check out your sun, moon and rising signs, too, for even more ideas. You never know what kind of inspo you might find.
