Style For Your Zodiac Sign: Cancer


Our new Chief Stylist is a budding astrologer, so we asked her to fashion a series of posts for us on each Zodiac sign.  We’ve just entered into Cancer, so here’s Annie Ladino’s style forecast for all of you moon children.

“This sign loves to wear clothing that is traditional yet feminine and conservative.  They love ruffles, romance, and pastels.”

“Cancer’s symbol is the Crab, their birthstone is Pearl and their metal is Silver.  Every Cancer should own a pair of pearls. Splash on some sparkle with one of my picks below.”

“Cancer colors mirror those of the seashell and moonlight — including silvery whites, palest, almost white-grays, light smoky blues and luminous silvery tea greens. Cancers are an ultra feminine sign, so styles that reflect that, such as a sweetheart-cut dress, are crucial. And while most Cancers stick to soft ladylike looks, they will occasionally take a walk on the wild side with funky accessories or a stand-out pair of shoes.”

“Fabrics that are highly feminine, soft and those with a subtle luminosity (think silk taffeta, raw silk, satin, silk charmeuse, polished yet thin pima cotton, and silky rayon) appeal to the Cancer. Their body parts are the bosom and the stomach. It is important to accentuate these with v-neck tops and ruffles.”

“Your birth sign endows your sense of self expression. Cancer or not, there is no denying this sign is cosmically chic. Tell me moon children, how will you be dressing this summer?”

Cancer’s key phrase is “I feel”. Those born under this water sign feel their way through the life. This Marc Jacobs top with its fluidity and pearl accents screams  your place in the world.
