Dress Like a Cancer
Welcome to our latest series, zodiac style with Stephanie Gailing! She weaves together stellar insights, flower essence therapy, dreamwork, and coaching as an astrologer and wellness consultant—and she’s bringing that expert advice to Garmentory to share astrological insights for dressing in line with each sign.
As a water sign, Cancers resonate with all things aquatic. Whether it’s a print emblazoned with maritime objects, a fabric that evokes the hues of coral reefs, or a beach cover-up dressed up for an evening out, we may feel pulled into the tide of donning sea-inspired styles.
Cancers are known for their sensitive nature and for feeling all the feels. As such, we may find ourselves wanting an emotional connection with clothing. What fits the bill? It could be a shirt that reminds us of our grandmother, a cozy sweater in the traditional style of our heritage, or even just a piece that evokes the mood we’re currently feeling.
As the Moon is the planetary ruler of Cancer, we also turn skyward for stellar fashion inspo. Look for accessories that evoke Luna’s shape, prints invoking its image, or gray and silver accent colors as your style beacon this season.
Mirroring Cancer's protective nature, clothes that shield you from the elements—think stylish rain hats, windbreakers, or attire made with sun-blocking fabrics—have us feel in the flow. Finally, with Cancer ruling the stomach, midriff-flattering crop tops and low-waisted jeans are quite aligned with the times.
