When designers predict the trends of the season, sometimes months in advance, the planets also influence our style. “This year is all about the Saturn-Uranus square. This can amplify the tension between conservative Saturn and innovative Uranus,” explains astrologer Odette La Du Paul. Uranus settled in the sign of Taurus for a period of seven years; a position that invites us to rethink our way of consuming, with a desire to get closer to nature by choosing more natural or recycled materials. “This trend is not just based on an economic mode, but resonates with the zeitgeist. Witness the number of people recovering old clothes to transform them and make new ones with the old ones,” adds the astrologer.
Sun sign and personality
On an individual level, it would be simplistic to judge someone’s clothing style by their sun sign:
“We talk a lot about the sun sign, because the sun is the star of our system, and thus the most important element. But before a man reaches a solar stage, he will go through all kinds of stages, influenced by socio-cultural, familial and ethnic factors.
Therefore, it would be just as simplistic to say that all people born under the sign of Taurus have the same taste and dress in the same way. Nevertheless, to give you some clues or ideas, here’s a little nod to the affinity of the zodiac signs, with the trends of the moment.
Aries: a dressing room without the hassle
What the Astrologer Says: Ruled by the planet Mars, the base of this sign is male, so it values things that are simple and straightforward. Aries is quick and spontaneous. Opting for practical outfits, this board works on a whim.
The good parts: A dress that is easy to put on, with sporty details added, confirming the dynamic spirit of the board.
Taurus: Good chic and above all good kind
What the Astrologer Says: Ruled by the planet Venus, Taurus is more sensual. He’ll like rounder, more conservative things with more earthy colors. Taurus still counts and likes to seize the right opportunity to show a nickel pace.
The good parts: A beautiful brand bag, classic references such as a blazer or pumps and the Taurus panoply is at the top.
Gemini: youth at full throttle
What the Astrologer Says: Gemini is the sign of adolescence. Ruled by Mercury, it stands out for its youthful appearance. It needs practicality, flexibility and adaptable parts.
The good parts: A women’s dress and bag that contrasts with the sock-sneaker combination.
Cancer: the eye in the retro
What the Astrologer Says: Ruled by the moon, returned to the past, Cancer dedicates a cult to vintage pieces. Worn in a total look or in small details, old pieces are its allies.
The good parts: A Claudine collar, lace, a 70s blouse… all found second hand.
Leo: dazzling under all circumstances
What the Astrologer Says: Shiny jewelry, rhinestones, clairvoyant, that is the uniform of the lion. Even if the look is more sober, it is a person whose presence we notice. Ruled by the sun, this sign radiates.
The good parts: Decorated in gold or dressed in jeans and sneakers, the Leo will always manage to release a very solar energy.
Virgo: clean and orderly
What the Astrologer Says: Pragmatic and very orderly, Virgos look neat and will not bear to go out with a stained garment. His planet is Mercury. It is a sign symbolizing work, health, service. In addition, the Virgo wears the uniform very well. Without impressing the gallery, this sign flaunts an unassuming look.
The good parts: Perfectly coordinated sets, soft colors twined by a playful detail.

The good parts: A beautiful blouse with ruffles, a beautiful bag… As long as the adjective “beautiful” precedes the garment or accessory, they will find their place in your dressing room.
Scorpio: have you seen me?
What the Astrologer Says: It is a sign of which Mars is the ruler. He can be quite provocative and likes exciting things. He lives by responding to the other. Even with the basics, the Scorpion will complete its bet with extravagant touches; just to get attention.
The good parts: A dazzling neckline, transparency, short… the right ingredients for a sparkling look.
Sagittarius: Style Fighter

Capricorn: Hide this look I can’t see!

The good parts: A timeless coat, a refined dress will delight Capricorn.
Aquarius: the look of the futurist
What the Astrologer Says: It is a sign whose ruling planet is Uranus. We are at a colder, more distant pace than that of a Cancer, for example. In a group, Aquarius manages to distinguish himself from others.
