If you thought your zodiac sign was only good for your monthly horoscope, think again.
Your sun sign determines the essence of who you are, but your rising sign is how you portray yourself to the world. Since your rising sign is not your core self, but rather the filter through which you experience that core self, it has a large impact on your personal style. The colours you are drawn to, the articles of clothing you wear repeatedly and even the celebrities whose style you emulate are all influenced by your sign.
Here’s how your zodiac sign can affect your personal style.
An Aries is a forward-thinker and is excited by the newness in everything. Also known as the “Warrior” archetype, they always take a proactive approach to life and need to face the world with confidence so feeling powerful and comfortable regardless of the setting is essential. They like to make a statement and never lets an item wear them. Skyhigh heels, chunky jewellery, sassy accessories and anything red are classic Aries trademarks.

Sensuality guides Taurus’ expression and purpose. Ruled by the planet of love, Venus, beauty, serenity, simplicity and music are their allies. A Taurus is generally conservative but loves clothes as a creative outlet. They care about the quality of what they wear and buy classic brands that outlast trends. No matter the clothing budget, a Taurus always manage to embody a sense of glamour with her wardrobe.

The Gemini sign is known for its versatility and needs variety in their wardrobe above all else. Geminis are born communicators and are never boring. They are inquisitive, expressive and mentally sharp – and their personal style reflects that. Accessories and a touch of whimsy are what helps a Gemini’s personality really shine through. For a Gemini, style is an opportunity to bring a sense of playfulness to life. If it’s not fun to wear, she won’t wear it.

Cancer is the nurturer of the zodiac signs and whatever a Cancer wears, dressing for security and success tends to influence her personal presentation. Cancers feel best when they feel deeply at home in their clothes, but that doesn’t mean they live in yoga pants. A Cancer still loves to get dressed up, yet it’s their understated elegance that makes them stand out.

Leos have fiery souls and, with them, it’s all about making a statement. When a Leo walks into a room, she commands attention. Leos are proud and aim for a dramatic flair when presenting themselves to the world. Leos like to dress for the occasion and like clothes that make them feel awesome and comfortable in their own skin. Their wardrobe is like a status symbol and they want to make everyone aware of who they are.

Known as the healer of the zodiac signs, Virgos feel at their best when they dress with attention and care. Virgos can be very hard on themselves when it comes to appearances and the development of practicality is necessary to their self-esteem. A Virgo feels most comfortable is a neat, structured look that is put together without causing too much fuss. They are attracted to brands that are fashionable, but most importantly, functional.

Social, beauty and symmetry are allies of a Libra. Libras strive for balance and order so to feel comfortable, their outfits must be thought out and intentional. As a cardinal sign, Libras are trend-setters and notice things others don’t. Libras create new looks from their observations and inspirations, causing others to follow their lead. Whether in jeans and a T-shirt or a glamorous evening dress, a Libra dresses for herself, but still cares what others think of her choices.
Celebrity Style Inspo: Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Kim Kardashian
A Scorpio feels best when she is wearing clothes that makes her feel powerful. Sometimes, less is more, but you can guarantee anything frumpy won’t be found in a Scorpio’s closet. Their personal style is subtle yet dramatic; there’s an understated charisma to their presentation that draws attention while commanding respect. If it’s fabulous and sexy, maybe even a little dark, it will appeal to a Scorpio.
Celebrity Style Inspo: Alexa Chung, Kendall Jenner, Ciara
A Sagittarius appreciates a sense of splendour in her wardrobe, whether it’s stacks of glitzy bracelets on each wrist or gold rings on every finger. As a fire sign, a Sagittarius doesn’t have to try to get attention, she just does. Sagittarius loves colour and portray their fun, flirty personalities in every look. They’re enthusiastic and adventurous and take a bold attitude when it comes to fashion.

As an earth sign, Capricorns favour practical outfits that incorporate a unique sense of mixing and matching. A Capricorn is often attracted to structured, quality clothing and is business orientated, so they dress like a professional at all times. This can translate into being conservative, yet the way a Capricorn mixes and matches is far from drab and is often where her true colours are shown.
Celebrity Style Inspo: Kate Moss, Kate Middleton, Sienna Miller
An Aquarius loves innovation and will often experiment with her wardrobe. Intuition and liberation are her main allies when it comes to personal style. An Aquarius isn’t one to follow the latest trends or adhere to certain fashion standards – she is her own personal trendsetter. An Aquarius pays attention to street style and high fashion, but she’ll never be caught replicating a trend. An Aquarius is creative when it comes to her personal style and makes everything her own.

Pisces are artistic creatures and have very unique tastes. Dreams and spirituality are a Pisces allies as she can channel the essence of mystery and magic into eye-catching fashion glamour. As long as she is expressing her emotions, a Pisces can feel comfortable in almost anything she wears. Pisces love to wear flowing fabrics and movable textures because they make her feel free.
