Finding the perfect costume for Halloween is a struggle. You want to wear something that’s relevant (Tiger King is so 2020) and you want something that you actually like. That’s why the best way to find a costume is to pick one based on your zodiac sign. That way you can match your costume to your personality and not have everyone showing up to the party dressed like a black cat or a sexy nurse. So read on to find out what you should be for Halloween this year based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21-April 19): Kourtney Kardashian and Megan Fox at the VMAs
Kourtney and Megan at the VMAs were extreme Aries energy. They were unapologetically in your face and clearly quite passionate about their boyfriends (and now one fiancé). So if you’re an Aries, grab your BFF and your favorite latex dress to get ready for Halloween.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Evermore
This album technically came out at the end of 2020, but the earthy tones and aesthetic of it are right up Taurus’ alley. Taurus is an earth sign, and people with this sign usually love nature and the outdoors. Dress up in a plaid and neutral toned ensemble and curl up on the couch with your pumpkin spice latte and you’ll be good to go.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): Gossip Girl Reboot
Geminis can get a reputation for being gossipy because they tend to be chatty and they like to know everything about everything. So you can lean into this stereotype and dress as a character from the Gossip Girl reboot. All you need is a blazer, tie, and eavesdropping skills. XOXO, Gemini.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): JLo and Ben Affleck
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that everyone’s fave couple JLo and Ben Affleck (AKA Bennifer) are back together, which is major Cancer energy. Cancers are emotional and sentimental, and what’s more sentimental than getting back with your ex of almost 20 years?
Leo (July 23-August 22): Billie Eilish at the Met Gala
Leos love drama and glamour, and Billie Eilish’s outfit at the Met Gala delivered both. She looked just like an old Hollywood star — basically like Marilyn Monroe risen from the grave. This is the ideal Leo costume if you want all eyes on you (and what Leo doesn’t?).
Virgo (August 23-September 22): Bernie at the Inauguration
The image of Bernie Sanders at the inauguration hunched over with his legs and arms crossed and his little knit mittens was instantly memed all over the place, but it’s also the image you would see if you looked up Virgo in the dictionary. He’s responsibly dressed for the weather and is more concerned with function over fashion. Typical Virgo.
Libra (September 23-October 22): Carrie Bradshaw
The Sex And The City reboot has been filming all over NYC, so what better way to celebrate than to be the iconic Carrie Bradshaw for Halloween? While Carrie is definitely a Gemini (first of all, she’s a writer, and she has a quick-witted comeback for everything), her character’s love of fashion makes her the perfect costume for Libras, who love all things beautiful and aesthetically pleasing.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Lisa Nova from Brand New Cherry Flavor
Lisa Nova is mysterious, has a bit of a dark side, and wants to get revenge on someone who wronged her — all typical Scorpio traits. Scorpios can seem aloof and secretive until you get to know them, and they have a reputation for being vengeful because they don’t deal well with betrayal (but it’s actually because they’re super loyal to the people they’re close with). Pretty much all you need for this costume is a couple of kittens (IYKYK).
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): LuLaRoe
If you watched the LuLaRich documentary, you know that LuLaRoe is a chaotic hot mess of a company. Just take one look at the crazy patterned leggings. This is perfect for Sagittarians, who can be kind of all over the place at times. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the sign of expansion, so Sagittarius signs like to constantly explore and learn new things, which means they can seem a little scattered at times, but in a good way. (No need to get real LuLaRoe leggings for your costume, though — anything with a busy pattern will do.)
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): An Olympian
The Olympics were big news in 2021 after being postponed for a year, and the Olympics have big Capricorn energy. The athletes work incredibly hard to get to their elite level and have amazing dedication and ambition, just like a typical Capricorn. And there are tons of Olympians and sports to choose from, so you can pick your fave.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18): Masha from Nine Perfect Strangers
Masha appears to be very aloof and doesn’t show much emotion, which is something Aquarius is known for. Aquarians are sometimes thought of as being a little strange or different because they like to march to the beat of their own drum, and you could definitely say Masha is quite unique.
Pisces (February 19-March 20): Olivia Rodrigo
Olivia Rodrigo is a Pisces, so all of you Pisces can claim her as your own (lucky!). Her album Sour is super confessional and gets you in your feelings, just like emotional Pisces, who tend to wear their emotions on their sleeves. And there’s so much fashion to choose from to dress as Olivia. You can do the Brutal music video, her outfit at the White House, or just her everyday style.
