Does Your Zodiac sign influence the way you dress? Follow along as I continue my Zodiac Style series and find out. Today it’s all about Cancer.

Both peaceful and passionate, perhaps the best way to describe Cancer woman, born between June 22nd – July 22nd, is that she is like the tide: strong-willed, persistent, and yet receding and retreating into herself if she is upset or provoked.

The Cancer woman has a strong sense of empathy. She is sensitive and sympathetic, often putting the needs of others above her own. Cancers are highly imaginative, intuitive and go with their gut. Strong willed, persistent, loving and kind, you can count on a Cancer woman to always have your back.

Casual Cancer

Cancers rely on timeless classics but don’t for a minute think that means boring. They look for pieces with elegant details that elevate basic classics and make them something special. Take this outfit for example. There is a nothing more classic and basic than a white top, black jeans, and casual shoes. But the grommets and bell sleeves on this nautical-inspired top add a level of polish that you just don’t get with a basic t-shirt.

Likewise the knotted strap on these slides – which, by the way, are currently on sale! This sporty striped Kate Spade bag is a spot-on way to finish off this classy, casual look.

Dressy Cancer

This refined silhouette, soft jersey fabric, and subtle vintage-vibe make this feminine dress a winner for the warm, nurturing Cancer woman, or any woman really who is looking for an easy-to-wear, flattering dress.

I love the pretty sea glass color, it’s the perfect shade for spring. A neutral bag, shoe and earrings keep the overall look elegant and refined.


Aren’t these Cancer choices lovely? Would you wear them?
