Like the water it represents, Cancerians flow and adapt to their surroundings. Cancerians are deeply emotional and sensitive, and often feel a close connection to people and places they know well. Personality-wise, they may seem to have a tough outer shell that protects them, but inside they're real softies!

In general, Cancerians love luxury and stability but they also crave comfort and familiarity. Of all the 12 Zodiac signs, Cancerians are considered to be the biggest homebodies and the biggest romantics! The ruling symbol of this sign is the moon, your stone is the pearl, and your ruling color is silver. Pair all of this with a dramatic, even romantic personality, and you will find those born under this sign look to labels when shopping and seek out classic styles instead of whatever is the hottest trend.

Cancerian Style

Those born under this sign usually resist taking risks, so they are always careful to choose the right outfit for each occasion. Cancer men and women are conscious of labels, and gravitate toward timeless classics rather than the style of the moment. For a gal born under this horoscope sign, the little black (or silver) dress is her staple, and she prefers a few accessories made of real precious stones or pearls over fake costume or heirloom jewelry. For fabrics, she’ll gravitate toward natural fibers like silk, cotton, wool, linen and leather. For the guys, Polo, Izod, Abercrombie or JCrew are go-to brands, especially when building off the nautical look -- a big look for this Water Sign.

It's hard to get a Cancer girl or guy to change their look, and when shopping, they'll probably head to the same stores and brands they've always loved. This year, along with the Nautical look and stripes, girls should look to add some silver items to her wardrobe while guys would do well to look for greys or black and white combinations. For girls, flowing romantic long skirts and dresses. For guys, casual open necklines on button-down shirts or polos, and a classic fedora can top off your look perfectly!
