Learn how to steal the spotlight like a Libra, which is one of the most fashionable signs in the zodiac

Dressing to impress may appear to come easily for Libras, but make no mistake: the #OOTDs on their flawless Instagram feeds are actually the result of the hours they spent curating their Pinterest boards, making impulse purchases from the new arrivals section on Net-a-Porter and FarFetch, and browsing through looks from fashion shows old and new.

In other words, you can look just as coordinated as your fashionable friends who are born under the the sign of the scales—if you’re willing to put in the effort. To help you out, we’ve highlighted some style tips that you can learn from our favourite Libra celebrities below.

Flirty, feminine and fun—no other colour encapsulates all three qualities quite like pink, and you’ll find many Libras who consider it to be their favourite. Serena Williams often wore pink sports ensembles on the tennis court, making a bold statement to the world on what a powerful athlete could look like. Even a rockstar like Avril Lavigne can’t resist wearing the pretty colour like a mother effing princess. Plus, it doesn’t hurt to introduce the hue to your wardrobe especially now that pink is officially in, thanks to the very Libra-esque Barbiecore trend that has taken over the runway and the red carpet.

Know Your Trends

Just as they are able to charm different types of people like the social butterflies that they are, Libras also have a knack for switching up their style according to what the current fashion trends call for. Make Instagram your friend and dig deeper into fashion history, and soon you’ll be able to set your own trends just like Bella Hadid. Unlike other celebrities, the supermodel doesn’t have a stylist and actually picks out her own outfits. Unsurprisingly, her fashion choices are liberal, ranging from vintage finds to looks that are fresh off the runway. She’s also known for championing smaller, independent designers just as much as luxury fashion powerhouses. 

Always Accessorise

Ask a Libra why they need another tiny handbag or a diamond bracelet and they’ll tell you that they can’t help it—it’s just so pretty. Thanks to their shopping addiction, Libras have amassed a wardrobe full of possibilities. They’re always looking to take their outfit to the next level, and they will do so with bags, jewellery, hats, sunglasses, and even mask accessories. Libras are maximalists, but not in the spotlight-stealing sense of a Leo. Instead, they believe that every detail matters, and besides, they want you to see how coordinated they can be on the outside. Just take a look at Yoyo Cao’s Instagram feed. The Singaporean style star is master of accessorising (she even made a whole video about it) and, like a true Libra, she does so with balance and harmony.

Don’t Be Afraid to Sparkle

If Libra popstar Gwen Stefani’s Luxurious music video didn’t make it abundantly clear, Libras have a love for all things that shine. Diamonds are their best friends, as are sequin dresses, crystal-studded bags, metallic fabrics, sparkly eyeshadow shades and even lip gloss—anything that reflects their own brilliance, basically. Kim Kardashian, for example, never shies away from the spotlight. While she’s always been one to flaunt her wealth, those who keep up with the Kardashian will notice that the Skims founder has been even bigger on all things bling ever since her divorce from Kanye West.

Have Fun With Fashion

If all of this is sounding like a lot of work, reconsider your approach to your wardrobe. Libras, being ruled by Venus, find pleasure in all things fashion, just as they do from art, makeup and other sensorial experiences. That’s why they can have fun with their style, just as the rule-breaking Doja Cat often does. Even as outrageous as her outfits might seem at first, the Hot Pink singer has never committed a fashion faux pas—and half of that accomplishment lies in not taking the art of dressing up too seriously in the first place.
