Zodiac style: Fashion inspired by the air signs, aquarius, gemini, and libra

Do you believe in astrology? Whether you take it seriously or scoff at the idea, chances are you know your zodiac sign and have read your horoscope at least once in your life. Did you know that astrology can also go beyond personality traits and likes/dislikes? Some people believe astrology rules how we dress and partially dictates our personal style.

To explore the link between fashion and the stars, this column will break down the style of each astrological sign and include outfits inspired by the zodiac.

For the first installment, we will be looking at air signs (Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra). Air signs supposedly are good communicators, flexible, and set high standards for themselves — especially style-wise. However, each of these signs has their own unique style, which you can check out below:

Aquarius (January 20- February 18)

Aquarius Symbol

Symbol: The Water Bearer

Traits: Eccentric, Independent, Open-Minded

Colors: Violet, Turquoise, Blue

Fashionable Aquarians: Lauren Conrad, Chloe Grace Moretz, Alicia Keys

  • Aquarians have a unique sense of style that is best described as quirky and fashion-forward.
  • They are usually the first to rock a new trend and don’t mind breaking fashion “rules” as long as they stay true to themselves.
  • Water bearers love bright colors and try to incorporate them into every outfit– even if it’s just a small pop of color.

Aquarius Outfit for Inspiration

Products: Top – Madewell, Jeans – Hollister, Jacket – Joe Fresh, Boots – ASOS, Earrings – Ralph Lauren

This outfit captures the quirky and cute style Aquarians are known for. The sweatshirt has an adorable starry print which I paired with edgier ripped black jeans. Layer the top under a trendy black lace bomber jacket and add some ever-popular over-the-knee boots. The sweatshirt and jeans continue the laid-back look, while the jacket and boots maintain the fashion-forward vibe. Accessorize with some turquoise earrings to add a pop of color and pick up on the blue of the sweatshirt.

Gemini (May 21- June 20)

Gemini Symbol

Symbol: The Twins

Traits: Witty, Charming, Adventurous

Colors: Orange, Yellow, Magenta

Fashionable Geminis: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Zoe Saldana, Natalie Portman

  • Geminis embrace youthful, eclectic and funky styles.
  • Like their symbol suggests, Twins have dual personalities when it comes to clothing. Anything goes with them, but they especially love mixing casual basics with bold and one-of-a-kind pieces.
  • Girls under this sign like outfits that are playful and flirty yet still look put-together.

Gemini Outfit for Inspiration

Products: Dress – Urban Outfitters, Jacket – ASOS, Ring – Etsy, Bag – Banana Republic, Flats – Kohl’s

This sign loves to find the balance between casual and playful and this outfit does just that by taking wardrobe staples to a whole new level. Shirtdresses are anything but boring in bold, bright colors. The casual denim jacket is punched up with floral embroidery. Geminis rule over the hands and are an air sign, so I added a butterfly cocktail ring in a Gemini color. The bow bag is charmingly fun yet structured. Hot pink flats have the flirty and youthful look Geminis love, while still maintaining a simple shape.

Libra (September 23- October 22)

Libra Symbol

Symbol: The Twins

Traits: Lovable, Sincere, Generous

Colors: Ivory, Pink, Light Blue

Fashionable Libras: Hilary Duff, Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow

  • Libras have a feminine, romantic style and a love of all things luxurious.
  • They are very fashion-conscious and always try to look their best, but would never be caught dead looking too flashy or gaudy.
  • This sign strives to find the perfect balance between casual and glamorous, without breaking the bank.

Libra Outfit for Inspiration

Products: Blouse – Vince Camuto, Jeans – Gap, Clutch – Nordstrom, Earrings – Kate Spade, Flats – Macy’s

Libras are all about soft and romantic outfits with a professional feel to them. The blouse is made out of a luxurious-looking fabric with feminine detailing and is paired with classic white jeans. White jeans look great with the color of the top and are both elegant and comfortable. Add some leopard print flats and a ruffled clutch for a chic touch and textural interest. Finish this look with some cute earrings with an owl motif for a hint of whimsy.

  1. What I’ve heard is that you follow your rising sign, since that’s the house that rules how you present yourself. I’m a double Pisces… but with Libra rising. And I could not stand your Pisces recs but I love love love your Libra.

  2. OH I love it! While I don’t put too much stock in astrology, it’s fun!

    Would any of you CF writers be interested in doing a post on edgier style for summer? I love style that’s punky (in a slightly masculine way), but I really have no idea how to rock this style when it’s too warm for my leather jacket. I do love sundresses and the more feminine styles of summer, but I don’t always feel like being girly all the time and I’d love your guys’ creative perspective on this.

  3. I am a Libra, and even though I don’t completely believe in astrology, I think that it may have something to do with personal choices and preferences. The description pretty much defined my style: balanced; fashion-forward, but not too eccentric. 🙂 I love the second outfit.

  4. I don’t think very much of astrology, but you totally nailed my best friend’s (she’s a gemini) style!
    I’m a Sagittarius (: can’t wait for your post on fire signs!

  5. I’m in love with Astrology, I have one of Suzanne White’s books about the chinese zodiac and I take a peek at it after meeting new people. I fit my profile to a T unlike some people, Cancer/Snake . I can’t wait to see what you come up for Cancers.
