It happens practically every time you meet someone new. You’re in the middle of a conversation and someone asks, “What’s your sign?” Humans have been studying astrology for thousands of years and use horoscopes to determine whether or not their personalities are compatible with potential mates or friends. But what if you used your zodiac sign to define how you should dress for your business?
According to the Smithsonian, approximately 70 million people, or 23% of the world’s population, read their daily horoscope. That’s a good portion of people who feel that the time they were born reflects who they are as a person. While it isn’t fair to place everyone inside a box, it’s hard to deny the patterns we fall into. Therefore, we came up with some grounded looks that reflect how you should present yourself at work if you want to harness the power of your zodiac and become a badass boss.
(December 22 – January 19)
For those of you unfamiliar, there are four types of signs in the zodiac. Air, earth, fire, and water. Capricorn is the last earth sign of the Zodiac. As such they always appear at the bottom of lists. Therefore, we decided to switch things up (and most likely upset some Aries along the way). Capricorns are focused and have everything together. They’re always striving to achieve CEO status, so what’s a better look for them than a powerful black suit?
(January 20 – February 18)
Why exactly is Aquarius considered an air sign and not water? It’s mind-boggling, but very fitting for people born during this time. An Aquarius likes to be an individual and often goes against the status quo. They are the most creative sign and are most likely to wear something they made themselves. A pop of bright color and flashy accessories like the ones below help make them truly unique.
(February 19 – March 20)
The two-headed Pisces is constantly pulled in different directions. They tend to turn from responsibility and conflict and prefer to fantasize about life on the beach. But that doesn’t mean they can’t still be in charge. A relaxed by-the-water look perfectly encapsulates their free spirit.
(March 21 – April 19)
Aries is the first sign in the zodiac, so it comes as no surprise that people born under this sign love to be number one. They are ambitious and obsess over what they don’t have, which greatly motivates them to launch startups. An Aries is not afraid of a challenge and nothing speaks to their fiery personality quite like the color red.
(April 20 – May 20)
A Taurus loves to be in quiet, relaxing environments such as the countryside or curled up in a cozy home. But when they are out and about they make for calm, composed, and compassionate leaders. What speaks better to their chill personality than earthy tones and a comfortable flannel suit?
(May 21 – June 20)
Perhaps the most chaotic sign, Geminis suffer from dual personalities vying for control. As such, they are expert multi-taskers and tend to make more commitments than a single human being can handle. Two-tone outfits and asymmetrical dresses perfectly represent the twins living in one body.
(June 21 – July 22)
Cancers are the pinnacle example of introverts. They prefer to keep their thoughts and feelings to themselves and are most comfortable in the security of their own home. Since they like to keep things casual, stretch waist jeans, plain tees, and oversized cardigans will make them feel right at home while still out on the grind.
(July 23 – August 22)
Leo’s are classified as the attention seekers. They are enthusiastic, proud, and have to stand out from the crowd. They are also very generous and know how to lead a pack. Of course nothing represents their alpha-cat status like a bit of bold print.
(August 23 – September 22)
The quintessential perfectionist, Virgos are observant, organized, and prefer to keep their two feet glued to the ground. They like to do everything themselves and when they dress up, everything has to be just right. Therefore, a minimalistic look is best. A simple blazer combined with a sweater leaves little room for mistakes.
(September 23 – October 22)
Libras are indecisive in their fight to bring balance and harmony to their lives. Because of this, they can be quite flaky when it comes to commitments. However, Libras are also the most romantic sign and love art and scenery. Here are some perfectly balanced pinstripe suits that are all about the aesthetic.
(October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios are the most passionate sign. Just like their name suggests, they have an edge to them that makes everyone around them feel like they’re ready to strike at any moment. However, Scorpios are misunderstood. Because they deeply ponder every situation, they can come across as cold or intimidating. A black leather look says all you need to know about this complex sign.
(November 22 – December 21)
The perfect definition of a hustler, Sagittarius is always on the go, has things to do and places to see. They are also blunt and impatient. As a fire sign, they can be quite bold with their looks and need practical shoes to keep up with their outgoing energy.
