We all know that genetics plays a huge role in our appearance. That isn’t debatable—that’s just a scientific fact. You’ve probably been told that you look like your mom or dad, and most of time, we also look very similar to our siblings and even our cousins.
But even though our genetics determine things like our height and our bone structure, we also have control over certain aspects of our appearance. For example, we can choose to wear makeup or go barefaced. We can get our hair cut in a certain way, or we can dye it a different color than its natural shade. We can even do things like go tanning to change our skin tone. There are so many factors that are completely under our control.
Did you know that your zodiac sign can even have an influence on the way you look? Some signs have different physical characteristics in common. And since your sign has a major influence on your personality, it also has a big impact on your personal style. The way you choose to dress, do your makeup, and style your hair could be connected to your sign! Here’s how your sign influences your physical appearance.
Fire signs, you just know that when you walk into a room, heads seem to turn. You can’t explain it—do you have some kind of strange aura that people pick up on? Is it the way that you carry yourself? Can people just instantly see that you mean business? It could be a combination of all of these things, depending on your sign! Some fire signs definitely walk with a certain swagger that just draws people to them. Others allow their confidence to shine through with their every movement. And some just give off a vibe that cannot be ignored. One thing is for certain, since the moment human beings invented fire, we have been drawn to it in some way—and people are definitely drawn to fire signs.
Aries, as we explained earlier, people do seem to be drawn to you—but it’s precisely because you’re not flashy. You have a fairly laid back style most of the time, although you do enjoy dressing up on certain occasions. Overall, you just give off a vibe that makes people want to be around you, and some of this is because of your appearance. You don’t like to wear a ton of heavy makeup, so when people see you, they typically view you as low maintenance and chilled out right off the bat. You usually leave your hair long and natural (which guys tend to love, as you may have figured out), and you probably receive a lot of compliments on it. Your understated appearance actually attracts more people than you might expect.
Leo, you already know that you are one confident woman. In fact, you might have the highest self-esteem out of anyone you know! You definitely know how to talk the talk and walk the walk, which can make you intimidating to some, but you don’t mind—you like knowing that not everyone can compete with you. So, how does this affect your appearance? Well, for starters, you would never be caught dead slouching. You have always had perfect posture, and you are simply the master at walking in heels—you can strut down a cobblestone street in heels without tripping once. You have a big, genuine smile, your eyebrows are always on point, and your highlight and contour are always perfect. You look like a woman who knows what she’s doing.
Sagittarius, your personal style is fairly similar to Aries in some ways, not so much like Leo’s. You are known for being low maintenance and carefree, and the way that you present yourself reflects that. You love to grow your hair long and use a little sea salt spray to create beachy waves. You are not a big fan of makeup, and you rarely ever wear it. Since you love to spend a lot of time outdoors—every Sagittarius seems to have a special connection with nature—you are generally quite tan in comparison to everyone around you, which can make you stand out. And your wardrobe is full of flowy dresses and skirts, strappy sandals, floral tops, and long scarves. You look like a hippie, and you love it!
Earth signs, you don’t tend to put much thought into your appearance—and that’s fine! This is true for signs under some of the elements as well, as you may remember from reading about Aries style and appearance. So, what features make you stand out? What factors make other people turn their heads to look at you? Well, for starters, earth signs are the masters at looking classy. Some other signs would rather reject those traditional standards, but you know just how important it can be to dress in a sophisticated, modest way in order to make a good impression. When you show up to a job interview, you generally look like you already work at the office. Trust us, your efforts pay off, and people view you very positively.
Taurus, you can switch between styles so easily. You are more willing to experiment because you don’t place a lot of value on material objects. You are a minimalist, so you have a closet full of statement pieces, a couple basics, and your favorite tee shirts and sweatpants! Basically, Taurus, you are most comfortable in something very casual. You like to keep your hair short because you do not want to waste a lot of time washing, brushing, and styling it. You also keep your makeup routine down to some mascara, concealer, and chapstick! You have a serious, more mature looking face—people often think you are older than you are. But when you do decide to dress up, you can just see people’s jaws dropping! You are a true classic beauty.
Virgo, you have never had one of your friends drag you aside for a fashion intervention. And you wouldn’t be caught dead looking trashy! Nope, you are a big fan of classic, stylish pieces. For example, you love little black dresses, white Oxford button downs, dark skinny jeans tucked into boots—you get the idea. Oh, and don’t forget ballet flats, your personal favorite. Your hair may be a more understated color, like chestnut brown or dirty blonde, but it works well with your complexion. You are most likely on the tall side, and this helps you carry yourself with grace. And when you add high heels, wow! When you decide to dress up, you truly look like a queen—you always look stately and put together.
Capricorn, you have been dressing like you were ready for business ever since you were allowed to pick your own clothes. You also like to keep your hair short—you probably have a bob, because it’s such a low maintenance hair style and it makes you look more mature compared to other people your age. You probably surprised your parents when you dressed like you were heading to work in middle school and high school. You definitely do not have any tattoos or crazy piercings—sure, you like to wear nice studs in your ears, but other than that, you would rather keep it totally natural. Some people may think that you look too serious, but you know that your appearance commands attention and respect from other people.
Air signs, it’s tough to say exactly which aspects of your physical appearances that you all have in common. This is because each air sign could have a wildly different personality. But that doesn’t mean you have no similarities. Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius definitely do share some traits. What’s the main thing that causes people to turn their heads and look at you? You do your own thing. You know that you have a unique personality, and you allow this to really shine through in the way that you present yourself. You love to shop at thrift stores, you dye your hair when the mood strikes, you are super into cool body art like tattoos and piercings, and sometimes, you even like to make your own clothes!
Some people just seem to hit the genetic lottery—and many Geminis are lucky enough to fall into this category! Gemini, you are just naturally attractive. You probably have long, gorgeous hair that barely needs to be brushed. You have also been blessed with clear skin that makes all the other signs jealous! And you’re also one of those people who can eat whatever they want and somehow stay skinny without spending hours and hours at the gym! Tell us your secrets, Gemini! Just kidding, we know that this is just luck of the draw. Sometimes, you’re just born with good genes, and in your case, Gemini, the stars have helped you out a little. Geminis are usually very flirty, and being so cute certainly doesn’t hurt!
Libra, you pride yourself on always being well put together. You do have a tendency to spend a little too much time worrying about how you look—but it does pay off, because you know that you always look good! Libra women are often classically beautiful. You have probably been complimented on your high cheekbones and good posture before! You also have eyebrows naturally frame your eyes beautifully, and long eyelashes to go along with them. You barely need makeup, but you do enjoy wearing it anyway! You also plan your outfits carefully, and you probably have a huge wardrobe—but you don’t see a problem with that! Plus, you absolutely love high heels (just like Leo!), so you are always walking tall and making your presence known.
Aquarius, you tend to attract a lot of stares. But while some of the other zodiac signs would feel annoyed by this, you simply do not. Why not? Well, you actually love the fact that your appearance makes you stand out. While some signs might prefer to blend in while in a crowd, you really like knowing that people notice you! So, what makes you stand out in a sea of faces? Well, for starters, you have a personal style that is all your own. You love to shop at thrift stores, find cool vintage pieces, and incorporate them into your outfits. Honestly, you hate the idea of fitting in! You have a couple tattoos, you are always getting new piercings, and you love dying your hair to try out new colors.
Water signs, you have an almost otherworldly appearance. Out of all the elements, water signs have always been the most mysterious. Sometimes it seems like you are off in your own little dreamland, far away from everyone and everything else going on in this world. And this is the vibe that everyone gets from you—like they can’t quite understand you on the surface, but they need to get to know you because something amazing is going on underneath. This is partially because of your physical appearance. Water signs tend to have physical features that somehow correspond with their personalities—it can sound strange, but it happens very often! Just take a look at your Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces friends and you will see how their personalities and looks connect.
Cancer, you are known for being the nicest sign in the entire zodiac, and you truly have a gift for connecting with others. People can tell that you’re genuine, too—they know that you are not faking it when you tell them how much you care! Your compassionate nature is reflected in your physical appearance. You have a beautiful smile that you are always complimented on. Seriously, you have a gorgeous smile out of your entire friend group. And we wouldn’t be surprised if you were voted “Best Smile” back in high school. Your smile lights up your whole face, and when people see you with that adorable grin, they immediately feel comfortable and welcomed by you. Your smile has the power to make other people smile, too!
Scorpio, everyone knows that you are a highly emotional sign, even when compared to other water signs! So, how is reflected in your physical appearance? You may have been told in the past that you have a very expressive face. If you don’t quite know what this means, we’re here to explain! Some people are very good at hiding their emotions. They can smile through the pain, they can give a fake laugh even though they were hurt by a comment, and they can hold their head high even if someone mocks them. Scorpio, you are physically incapable of hiding your feelings—instead, you wear your heart on your sleeve! If you’re sad, your eyes will show it. If you’re happy, your smile will brighten up the room, and if you’re angry, everyone will see it on your face!
Pisces, out of the signs, you are the most imaginative. Your creativity is endless, and your mind is simply overflowing with ideas at all times! Your potential is boundless, your dreams are big, and if you put your mind to it, your talents will take you far. What does this have to do with your physical appearance? It all starts with your eyes. You have probably received many compliments on your eyes throughout your life. As you know, some people say that the eyes are the window to the soul—and when it comes to you, Pisces, that saying is definitely true! You have beautiful eyes that reveal all of your feelings. If it hasn’t happened already, a man will fall in love with you one day the moment he looks into your eyes!
