The Sunglasses Style That's Right For You, According to Your Zodiac Sign
Let the stars do the choosing.
Let’s keep it real for a second: It’s so hot outside, and with the summer heat comes strong rays from the sun. Apart from using sunscreen every day, one of the best things we can do to protect ourselves from the sun is wear sunglasses. They're a practical way to shield your eyes from the sun, of course, but they're also trendy pieces that can give your outfit an extra boost. We love all types of sunglasses, from trendy hexagon ones to classic cat-eye silhouettes, but with so many options out there, it can sometimes be hard to decide which style you actually want to buy. In those cases, we like to turn to the stars.
According to astrologer Lisa Stardust, each of the 12 zodiac signs leans towards a certain style because it either brings them luck or helps them express their nature. To help you find the best sunglasses style to rock, we worked with Stardust to reveal which shades work best with each sign.
Aries (March 21st-April 20th)
Hello, ram. You’ll want sunglasses that assert power and gusto, so a sporty-chic pair will bring out your fiery side.
Taurus (April 21st-May 20th)
Ah, Taurus, the lovers of love. Stardust says that heart-shaped sunglasses are your go-to look to seduce others and love yourself.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th)
Being the outgoing spirit you are, you’ll want a pair of statement butterfly sunglasses that will wrap around your eyes and serve as a protective force—while asserting your voice in the world, of course.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd)
“Shield glasses will help tender Cancer avoid negativity coming into their orbit—and getting sand in their eyes,” says Stardust.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd)
Cat-eye sunglasses are perfect for Leo’s gentle roar. Plus, this timeless style gives a nod to your feline family. Meow!
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd)
“Browline sunglasses are great for Virgo because they’ll let the earthy sign get a good scope of understanding on shady matters,” explains Stardust.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd)
For the ultimate Venusian sign, Stardust says that a pair of simple, round sunglasses are the perfect match. “They can go with any of Libra’s hot lewks this season,” she adds.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 22nd)
“Flip-up sunglasses are the best shape for Scorpio, as the water sign finds peace in both the dark and the light side of life. They enjoy edgy sentiments,” explains Stardust.
Sagittarius (November 23rd-December 21st)
Classic aviators are perfect for this fiery sign, the fighter of the zodiac who won’t stop until they win. These shades will help Sagittarius win the style game, for sure.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th)
You’re always down to learn about ways that can save you time and be more productive, so a pair of mirrored glasses are perfect for you. “They serve as a convenient compact that allows Capricorn to touch up their makeup and hair in between meetings,” notes Stardust.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 19th)
You’re unique, Aquarius, and your sunglasses should be as well. Stardust says that the retro-inspired square look is perfect for this air sign, and we couldn’t agree more.
