You know it's Leo Season when your Instagram feed turns into an endless scroll of birthday countdowns and colorful selfies. The most theatrical sign in the Zodiac, Leos like to sing their own praises loud and proud—and from July 23 to August 22, we’re all more likely to receive a second-hand surge of self-confidence and creativity, too. If ever there was a good time to play with funky silhouettes or experiment with print and color, it’s during the month of the lion.
Why not breathe some fresh air into your summer style by taking a lesson or two from the flamboyant fire sign? Vogue Market Editor and steadfast Leo Anny Choi explains how it’s done: “It’s more about wearing things that will make you stand out in situations and doing the opposite of what you know everyone else will do.” In other words, try stepping out in an asymmetrical hemline, a wacky heel, or a tongue-in-cheek jewelry piece. One-off details can also liven up otherwise basic staples, such as a plastic chain snaking up a pant leg or a simple white one-piece with a side cut-out.
