Great style is subjective. Period. But for the sake of satisfying our curiosity, we’re asking, just for a moment: What if it’s not? What if it’s fate, or destiny even? Blame this on our love of all things astrology. It’s the same urge that makes us download at least three astrology apps, even if you only want to compare sun signs with your recent fling or check for Mercury in retrograde before you sign a new lease. This time, we looked to the stars—or more specifically, five trusted astrologers—to ask which astrology sign is the trend leader of the bunch. Spoiler alert: They don’t all agree.
It should be prefaced: The sun sign is just a part of a person’s whole birth chart, and therefore, we can’t really make mass assumptions about every Virgo, Scorpio, or Cancer, for instance. But hey, horoscopes are fun, so with this in mind, we asked, who is the biggest trendsetter of the universe? Agree or disagree, but either way, take our expert's opinions with a grain of salt. And feel free to shop out some astrology-specific suggestions below too.
“Scorpio: Aesthetics are an expression of truth, contingent on trusting what you feel and know. Scorpios pay close enough attention to how other people wear clothes to devise theories on why something works. That, coupled with clear, razor-sharp self-knowledge, allows for a purely artistic relation to clothes.
“Leo: If the clothes are just comfortable, there are no new thoughts. Leo is self-assured enough to assume powerful aesthetics that push against their physical limits and societal expectations.”
— Banu Guler, CEO and co-founder of Co–Star
“This is a hard one for us since we think every sign can pull off their own signature style. But we tend to admire Aries the most. They always come up with the cleverest color combinations and style mashups—and there’s always a reason and story. Ultra-personalized style is the way for the zodiac’s first and trailblazing sign.”
— Tali and Ophira Edut, AstroStyle Horoscopes by The AstroTwins
“Pisces and Pisces rising are going to view fashion as art—so they will blow us away with their creativity and disinterest in what’s ‘cool’ or what’s ‘on trend’. Think Rihanna. Think Comme des Garçons. They’re just marching to the beat of their own style drum.”
— Nadine Jane, astrologist
“It’s inherent in our beings to express art through our preferences of what feels good and what doesn’t, especially on our bodies. Fashion was depicted in the ancient Greek hieroglyphs, so it probably began when humanity began. Each sign of the zodiac tends to favor a particular fashion expression.”
While Jourdan preferred not to pinpoint a specific sign as the most anything, she mentioned that Geminis are often the sign that loves a hot trend. And furthermore, she laid out a few more signifying style characteristics of the other 11 signs. Read on below and shop the inspired pieces.
