Does your zodiac influence your eyewear fashion?
How personified is your fashion sense? Do you blindly follow the latest trends or wear something that screams out who you are?
Though understated, the equation that you have with your personal style goes a long way in influencing people’s perception about you.
In a bigger picture, the fashion statement is defined by the eyewear you sport. But with so many choices in shapes, color and even thickness of frames, I’m sure it is daunting to find the right pair.
I’ve matched up the eyewear with your zodiac sign so that whenever you step out, you can be sure you’re sending out the right vibes.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
The celestial wild ram, ruled by Mars… You get your energy and liveliness from the God of War. You have a zeal for life that is contagious. You are the fiercest and fieriest of all the zodiacs. You take a keen liking to accessories. You are also a child at heart and enjoy attention. Any bold, bright color will work for you, especially red, since that is your power color.
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Taurus is sensuality and the bull enjoys all fine material things in life, be it delicious food, opulent interiors or high-class fashion. You are calm and determined – your clothing often reflects that. You are also reluctant to change and fashion trends are a relentless and futile pursuit for you. Timeless pieces work the best when it comes to your eyewear such as Ray-Bans and Aviators! My advice is to get a sturdy, high-quality pair since your possessive nature won’t let you part with them for a long time.
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
The twins ruled by Mercury, the Messenger God. Good communication is your forte, making you one of the most social signs of the zodiac circle. You are intellectual, creative and ever-evolving. Any trendy or retro frame will suit your personality just well. You are also prone to sudden mood swings and, therefore, it makes sense to stock up on a few favorites sunnies that suit each one of your moods. Choose from round, to square shapes; experiment with half-rimmed and full-rimmed will suit you well.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Ruled by the Moon, you are sensitive, emotional and kind-hearted. You are also intuitive, homely and fun-loving. When it comes to eyewear fashion, you take a more practical approach, choosing to buy glasses that are more functional, as opposed to stylish – a sensible take. You also advocate the ‘less is more’ philosophy and opt for sunglasses that are comfortable. Choosing the aesthetically pleasing and not too trendy. My advice is to go for a white frame. You will love the crispness and sophistication it offers! The other shades of brown and coffee could also be experimented with.
Leo (July 23 – August 23)
Ruled by none other than the Sun himself, Leo’s defining characteristics are generosity, warmth, charisma and bravery. You love to be in the spotlight and do not shy away from wearing any eccentric piece that’ll standout and make people look at you twice. Orange frames are a must-have in your eyewear wardrobe, along with a few other dramatic pieces that can grab attention. Because for you bold is beautiful!
Virgo (August 24 – September 21)
You are a born perfectionist and a stickler for details. Though you’d rather be away from doing any major fashion experiments, mostly choosing to play it safe, you want intricately decorated and well-crafted pieces that scream class and sophistication. Go for eyewear shopping with some time in your hands and a patient friend by your side, since your practical and methodical nature will not let you narrow down on any particular eyewear until you’ve moseyed around the entire market. Go for colours such as blacks and hues of blue the regular and the safe ones.
Libra (September 24 – October 23)
You are one of the ever-so-balanced scales that want harmony and peace all through their lives. Ruled by Venus, you are naturally inclined towards the finer things in life. A good fashion sense is something you don’t have to work hard at. When it comes to eyewear, you tend to stock up on quite a few pieces since, most of the time you can’t make up your mind. It is best to select a classy, not-too-dramatic pair for yourself that you can carry off with most ensembles. A little gold detailing here and there will add a nice touch for you! And, your fine sense of fashion will clear the way for you. Try shades of pinks and blues some quirky ones too, to match the variety you prefer.
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
You are the only sign in the zodiac that is ruled by Mars as well as Pluto. Needless to say, you have an intense personality that becomes overwhelming most of the times. A remarkable characteristic of this sign is, Scorpio natives tend to have a piercing stare. Cat-eye glasses work best for you, as do dark colored lenses, since you sometimes like to go incognito. Do not hesitate to try on edgy styles once in a while. Avoid gradient tones I’m sure you won’t prefer them.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
You are adventurous, confident, intelligent, enthusiastic and optimist. You don’t mind making heads turn and you certainly don’t shy away from a few quirky accessories. Since you love to travel, you are out in the sun quite a bit. Pick glasses that are as functional as they are fun. Look for imaginative silhouettes that allow you to reinvent yourself with every outfit. Blacks and browns, may be reds for outdoors and fun and gradients for the classy look!
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
Fashion trends are over-rated for the ambitious and hard-working Capricorn. Saturn, your ruler, will allow you to be nothing other than precise and disciplined. So, it’s the classics all the way for you. You tend to be drawn towards expensive and subtle square or cat-eye frames. But your best bet has always and will always be the Wayfarers. Go for any colours that’d go with the classics!
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)
Aquarius is the most breezy, easy-going sign of the zodiac – the philosophical wanderer. You are also a bit of a wild child – a rebel with a flair for drama. Your unique and original approach to life translates into a creative and independent fashion statement. No matter what I say, I know you will only go for those outrageously crazy pieces that have no relation with your outfit whatsoever. And what’s more, you’ll make them look good! Be different!
Pisces (February 20 – March 20)
The most intuitive sign in the zodiac is also quite insightful when it comes to rocking the right eyewear trends. Your personal style is a cross between bohemian and girly. You scourge the markets for a pair of glasses that no one else has as you like being unique. Let your imagination and free-spirit shine through with creative and stylish pieces. Among colors, sea-green holds a special place in your heart when it comes to eyewear.
Now you know why you are drawn to certain types of eyewear – it’s your zodiac! Don’t be afraid to own your personality and let it shown by your fashion choices. At the same time, don’t be afraid of experimenting either. And most importantly, remember to have fun!
