Zodiac Style: Fire Signs – Aries, Leo & Sagittarius


Astrology Fashion: Fire Signs

This is the second article in a four part series that explores the link between fashion and the stars. (In case you missed the first part, see Zodiac Style: Air Signs – Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra.) For this week’s installment, we will be looking at fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) and their personal style.

Fire signs love vibrant colors, take bold fashion risks and love to catch attention with their fashion choices. For specifics on each sign’s unique style, check out these style breakdowns:

Aries (March 21- April 19)

Aries Symbol

Symbol: The Ram

Traits: Energetic, Passionate, Bold

Colors: Red, White, Black

Fashionable Aries: Leighton Meester, Emma Watson, Kristen Stewart

  • This sign likes a more masculine or sporty look with lots of structured pieces. They also love comfortable and casual basics.
  • Rams rule over the head, so they like wearing hats, headbands and other accessories that draw attention to the head and face.
  • Aries are fashion trendsetters and aren’t afraid to wear super-bold or daring pieces.

Looks for Inspiration

Aries Outfits

Outfit #1: Top, Shorts, Belt, Necklace, Hat, Flats Outfit # 2: Dress, Headband, Clutch, Shoes

Aries love simple and comfortable clothes like the kind in this first outfit. Pair a basic white top with black shorts like the ones above for a masculine yet fitted look. Most girls under this sign aren’t fans of heels, so add some simple black ballet flats to retain comfort. The statement necklace and skinny belt add a pop of color while the fedora brings attention to the head and face.

The dress in the second outfit is perfect for this sign’s unique fashion sense– it is comfortable, sporty and bold at the same time. Keep the rest of the look simple with woven flats and a structured clutch. Once again, draw attention to the face with an adorable headband.

Leo (July 22- August 22)

Leo Symbol

Symbol: The Lion

Traits: Courageous, Spontaneous, Confident

Colors: Orange, Gold, Yellow

Fashionable Leos: Taylor Momsen, Anna Kendrick, Demi Lovato

  • Leos love all things luxurious and are enamored by rare, exclusive or designer pieces.
  • Big jewelry, bold patterns and sequins are all on this sign’s must-have list. They are also huge fans of animal print.
  • This sign uses fashion to express themselves and communicate their mood.

Looks for Inspiration

Leo Outfits

Outfit #1: Top, Jeans, Sunglasses, Earrings, Wedges Outfit #2: Dress, Bracelet, Clutch, Shoes

The first outfit is an example of how to take the luxurious look Leos love and make it casual for every day. The top has a unique sequined trim near the shoulders and adds just enough sparkle for daytime. Simple black jeans elongate the legs while these wedges are the perfect mix between fashion-forward style and comfort. Accessorize with some stylish leopard print sunglasses and statement earrings to finish this look.

Leos love dressing up for any occasion and the second outfit is a great look for going out. This asymmetrical dress is sure to be a favorite of any Leo with it’s subtle animal print. Studded heels add some edge to the outfit while the clutch makes an elegant statement. Finally, a bold cuff bracelet will add a bright pop of color.

Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)

Sagittarius Symbol

Symbol: The Archer

Traits: Optimistic, Honest, Easy-Going

Colors: Purple, Royal Blue, Indigo

Fashionable Sagittarians: Scarlett Johansson, Vanessa Hudgens, Chanel Iman

  • This sign loves to go wherever the wind takes them, so they like wearing comfortable and versatile clothing.
  • Sagittarians are likely to experiment with all types of different trends and styles.
  • Archers are always on the lookout for unique and one-of-a-kind pieces to wear with basics.

Looks for Inspiration

Sagittarius Outfits

Outfit #1: Top, Jeans, Necklace, Bag, Flats Outfit #2: Dress, Earrings, Clutch, Pumps

Sagittarians are all about wearing simple and casual pieces like cropped jeans and this patterned top. This sign never knows what the day may bring, so carry a large satchel to hold everything you might need. Sagittarians like wearing comfortable shoes and these flats are both stylish and comfy. Accessorize with this unique arrow necklace as a nod to your star sign.

The second outfit is an example of how Archers do formal wear. This dress has a simple silhouette in a bold color and looks great with some basic peep-toe heels. These chandelier earrings match the dress perfectly and this one-of-a-kind clutch is perfect for Sagittarians.

    So, being a Leo, I was super excited to see this post.
    But, the Leo outfits? …Am NOT feeling that at all.
    That Sagittarius looks were adorable, but I didn’t think the ones for Leo were… colorful enough to personify our flashy personalities. I would’ve expected something more like the 2nd Aries look. I feel like the outfits didn’t match your description of us.

    not feeling the leo outfits
    cant wait for taurus though!!!

    I definitely agree with Kenzie, the outfits felt a lot more subdued than what I was expecting for a Leo outfit. As a Leo, I’m definitely more for a huge variety of colors, both bold and muted, and for an extraordinarily large amount of “glitz.”

    The Aries outfits are sooo pretty! :) But yeah, not feeling the Leo ones.
    I can’t wait until the posts about Water signs!

    Despite being a Leo I’m not into bold and bright colours – but luxury isn’t just about them, is it? I love the colour palette you used ;)
    As for the outfit #2, I don’t really like the dress but the bracelet is gorgeous, I adore gold.
    And the Aries outfits look amazing, too.

    I love this post but I’m also not feeling the Leo outfit. As a leo, I LOVE color and the outfits have no color to them.

    I really liked the post and I really loved the LEO outfits (leo represent here :DD). I really liked the feel of luxury they had and I totally advocate big shoes.

    Pretty fun idea. I love the casual Sagittarius outfit, can’t wait to see what you choose for Virgo!

    I loveeee this post. I’m an aries and I can say you’re dead on (in my situation anyways) I’ve read every single one of your posts and you are by far my favorite website out there :) keep doing what you girls do!

    I am an Aries that loves to wear heels but was also really surprised how the rest of clothing description fit my style very well.

    June 20th, 2010 at 8:11 pm

    This is awesome! I can’t wait until you do Water signs. I’m on a “Cancer/Leo cusp” meaning I was born when the symbols change and I am a combination of the two personality wise (or something like that :P) . You described my Leo side perfectly. It will be interesting to see the Cancer style traits so I can combine them with the ones for Leo. Fun post!

  15. 15
    June 20th, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    I’m a Ram, and it’s dead on! I don’t think the dress would look good on me, as I am busty and horizontal stripes in that part of my body would not be flattering, but everything else is very me- comfortable, flats, hats like fedoras…thanks!

    All the comments about the Leo outfit not being Leo enough thus reveals how star signs are a pile of dog poo.

    Aries outfit was the best!

    I’m a Sagittarius and you have my style down perfectly! I wore something eerily similar to outfit #2 for my senior prom. I absolutely looooove both outfits!!

    When I first saw that CF was doing “Zodiac Style,” I was so anxious to see what you would do for Leo. Imagine my horror when I saw…animal print! Eughh! I hate animal print; it’s so corny looking.

    Love love loved the first outfit, though – wedges with long black jeans and a shimmery detailed top are pretty kickin’!

    June 21st, 2010 at 12:08 am

    Hey, I am a Sagittarius and I can kind of identify with the outfits. Most articles like this seem to think that Sag’s wanting to be comfortable, etc means ugly clothes! But I think you did well :] I loove the bag and necklace in the first outfit, so cute and unique! I am not really feeling the brown though..I like to wear bright rich colors! I would probably choose a more interesting and colorful top and shoes.
    I love the purple dress. I would definitely wear that for a night out!
    Great article overall! :]

    As a journalism student I feel obligated to let you know that there is a grammatical error (is likes) next to the first star under Aries.

    June 21st, 2010 at 11:51 am

    im an aries and i love these outfits! also the first leo outfit and the saggitairius outfits are really nice xxxxx

  23. 23
    June 21st, 2010 at 12:32 pm

    @Violet, I noticed that too! LOL, as a grammar nut, thanks for saying it first :-)
    I am an Aries/Taurus cusp, but I feel more Aries usually. While I think astrology is mostly a croc, I LOVE these articles!!! And you totally nailed the Aries outfits!!! I would wear either, and the part about bold pieces, hats/headbands/bow, and flats were right on!!! Keep up the great article-ing!!!

    I LOVE the Sagittarius dress in outfit 2 but im from the UK and cant buy it. Do you know any UK sites that would stock the dress or something similar because i really want it!

  25. 25
    June 21st, 2010 at 11:33 pm

    I’m a Leo, but seriously, I think the Leo outfits are ultra-trashy. One shoulder dress? No. Sequins? Sorry. LEGGINGS as PANTS? I wouldn’t be caught dead. Sagittarius and Aries are both cute, but the Leo outfits.. No on so many levels. Sorry.

  26. 26
    June 22nd, 2010 at 1:45 am

    I’m a Sagittarius and I really love those outfits. This is exactly my clothing style. But 99% of the time I wear heels. I’m 1.64m and I have to wear heels. I love flirty feminine looks and boho style.

  27. 27
    June 22nd, 2010 at 9:31 am

    Emily- Delia’s (the shop that sells the purple dress) does ship to the UK, but the shipping price is fairly expensive. You can check out shipping rates here. I did find 2 similar dresses that are exclusive to the UK here and here.

    Shelby- Sorry you don’t like the outfits. I looked at multiple sources that all said Leos like sequins and daring pieces that stood out. Remember that these are just for fun and not everyone will match their sign 100%. And I agree, leggings should never be worn as pants. However, if you took the time to look at the product information or click the link you can clearly see that the "leggings" in the first Leo outfit are actually jeans.

    I love astrology and the zodiac signs, the outfits for libra totally fit my personality. I am going to put a link from my web site to here so people can check these out. Check out my version of the zodiac signs… Chow for now

    June 26th, 2010 at 11:11 pm

    I’m kind of the odd one out here- I’m an Aries and generally identify with it, but those outfits were not what I had in mind at all! To me the Leo’s were much more like the picture in my head, but hey, all three of these are the fire signs so if a girl likes one outfit in her “group” then you did a good job!

  31. 31
    June 27th, 2010 at 2:55 am

    ‘Love this zodiac styles series. Too bad people forget that zodiac signs are generalities, not a complete and throughly accurate description for every person. So of course not everyone is going to agree with the outfits for their sign. You still put together great, themed outfits. Good work!

    I can’t wait for earth signs (esp Taurus)!

  32. 32
    June 28th, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    First of all, great outfits I can tell you have a great fashion sense.
    The thing is I dont really believe in astrology, sorry but thinking that the position of stars determinate your personality kinda doesnt make sense. For example, I’d be an aries, so I’m supossed to like masculine and sporty …SO not me…I´m actually super girly and dont really love the first outfit… I also checked out the style of Leighton, Emma and Kristen to prove my point… and I was right..nothing “masculine and sporty” about them…except maybe Kristen… so…again great outfits, just dont think zodiac signs influence fashion style

  33. 33
    July 4th, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    I’m a Sagittaraius, but I found the Aries outfit much cutier. It’s all in personal style I guess, not the stars.

    Eagerly awaiting The Water Signs!

    I can’t wait to read the Capricorn style profile (my sign) though I’m a bit nervous actually. I’ve read about other Capricorn styles and they don’t exactly make me jump for joy. haha

    My favourite actress is a Leo. She has short blonde hair and green eyes. She’s 5′ 5″. She wears boots with dresses (once a loose black dress while she was in another country), she even wears long loose tops with jeans and boots over her jeans. Hats and scarves are also her thing. Long dangly earrings. Plus she has an enigmatic smile. She has this open hearted personality. She looks great in any colour and I’ve seen pictures of her in black alot. She seems more “Leo” to me than the style profile shown above but that’s just my opinion. But hey, it’s all up to the person.

    The earrings for Sagittarius *dies* flove them. And the colour purple *flails* Outfit #2 looks well put together plus my two top favourite colours are there.

    I’m a Sagittarius, and I think that you got my style spot-on–
    I’m sure am always looking for unique pieces to wear with my basics!
    I love a good comfortable yet eye-catching jacket to wear with my tanks and jeans and skirts (:
    Great job there I love the first Sag outfit <3

    July 18th, 2010 at 2:33 pm

    I’m an Aries, and the style is pretty much spot on to mine. My favorite color are red, black, and white, and I do rule with my head. But I never thought of myself as very masculine in dress, but I thought the outfits were pretty much what I would wear. I also love heels and I do not wear things on my head, so that is where I beg to differ on your article. All in all though, great job!

    October 29th, 2010 at 4:08 pm

    I’m a Sagittarius and I really don’t like the first outfit. I would never dress like that. I do like the second, formal outfit.

    February 4th, 2011 at 1:47 am

    I’m an Aries, and I LOVED the 1st outfit. 2nd one was a little too girly for me, but guess it fits the description.

  45. 45
    April 17th, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    I really love the Leo outfit! I think it fits Leo very well. Only a Leo can pull off the daring prints and designs! I am a Scorpio and I would totally wear the Leo outfit if I could pull it off! The other outfits I think fit very well to the signs! But yeah when I think of Leo I think of Jennifer Lopez wearing the green Versache dress and I don’t think any other sign could pull that off!
