Zodiac Style: Cancer

Falling between June 21 and July 22, this month's sign, Cancer, is all about summer! In fact, it's the first real sign of summer and actually begins its reign with the summer solstice. We're right in the middle of the sign now -- and right in time for some new styles to rock throughout the summer!


Cancer's element is water, and its sign is the crab. It's only fitting that we use the ocean as a basis for this month's zodiac look. Whether you're a Cancer yourself or just want to find some new styles for the rest of the summer, check out these picks inspired by the deep blue sea.


Blue Ombre Crab Pillow Prada Raso Clutch Multi-tone Crab CZ Necklace Brass and Mango Wood Bangle Bracelet Set Women's Silver Heels Hi-Lo Knit Maxi Dress


The Cancer sign is ruled by the moon, and just like the phases of the moon or the rising of the tide, your style has an ebb and flow to it. One day you may want to get all dressed up, and the next day jeans and a T-shirt suit your mood. This airy hi-lo dress is the best of both worlds. Dress it up with a skinny belt, pumps, and chunky jewelry one day; then go simple with sandals and a denim jacket the next. Cancers are also known to be imaginative, and the styling options for this dress are endless (especially since it comes in four colors). Use your creativity and give it your own, personalized twist.


I love the deep ocean hues for this sign, but the best colors on Cancers are actually light, neutral hues. Give them a try with some chic, light accessories. This brass and mango wood bangle set pairs cool, creamy white with warm gold, while these silver heels add just a dash of bling without straying away from neutral.


Favorite on my list is this absolutely stunning Raso clutch from Prada. The mosaic-like stones remind me of beach glass, though, at 1.7k you may not actually want to take it to the beach. If you're looking for a more affordable look alike, this natural shell clutch has the same exotic appeal.


Of course, you can never go wrong with rocking a few "crabby" styles. A cute crab necklace lets you show off your Cancer pride, and this one's multi-tone look goes with just about anything in your closet! You can even add a little summery zodiac style to your home with this blue-on-blue ombre crab throw pillow.

Luckily, as a Scorpio, I'm a water sign, too, so I feel like these aqua tones suit me just fine. :)

Love the summery ocean blues in this blog. My own Aquarius style involves spending the dead of winter hidden under a down comforter.
