Haleigh, Aerie Social Media Assistant, can’t ride a bike and was worried she couldn’t rock a bike short either. Erin put her in an anything-but-basic Chill High Waisted Bike Short and paired it with an off-the-shoulder Woven Tube Top. She accessorized with a cross-body bag, sunnies and sandals for a pop of color. No bike needed!

What’s your swim sign?

We teamed up with astrologer Jennifer Racioppi to learn how to shop for sunshine AND your astrological sun sign. Check out Jennifer’s all-new take on finding the suit for you!

What’s your swim sign?

From Jennifer:

Exposing your skin in a swimsuit takes courage and confidence. While buying a new suit can feel challenging, it does not need to induce anxiety. Bathing suit shopping, after all, provides another opportunity to embrace precisely where you are—right now—without needing to fix or change anything, but rather, enhance what’s already awesome about you!

We tend to think of astrology as nothing more than an anecdotal forecast, but inherent in our sun sign lies direction for living a life of body confidence, too. Living in sync with the truth of who you are, after all, is one of the sexiest things you can do.

Read your sun sign description and swimsuit suggestion to see if this cosmic shopping advice doesn’t help you fall even more in love with you are!

Aries: As a cardinal fire sign, you possess courage and determination. Your head-turning speed means showing off your back is never a bad idea.

The sleek contour emphasizes confidence and self-possession.What’s your swim sign?

This dynamic and playful suit emphasizes sexy feminity while allowing you to highlight your neck (one of your hallmark features).

Gemini: As a mutable air sign ruled by Mercury, your innate social nature makes you the life of the party. When shopping for a suit, your best bet is to aim for versatility. Like you, the Bandeau Bikini Top and High Cut Cheeky Bottom are both sporty and sexy.

Cancer: Your lunar-ruled, emotional nature, makes you an empathetic friend and quintessential confidant– the perfect companion for a beach day. When it comes to rocking a swimsuit with confidence, consider the Triangle Bikini Top and classic Bikini Bottom. This sleek and sexy suit offers structure while leaving room for playfulness, too.

Leo: As a solar ruled fire sign, you are here to love and lead from your heart, while looking great in the process– making the Unlined Underwire Top and High Waisted Belted Bottom a perfect option for you. This fashion-forward suit will have you stand out as it emphasizes your confidence. More importantly, you’ll have a blast wearing it.

Libra: As a Venus-ruled air sign you value balance, harmony, and style! Your on-trend sensibilities will look fabulous in the High Neck Bikini Top and Hipster Bottom. This sleek combination will leave you feeling supported and self-expressed. Your regal nature will love the way you feel.

Scorpio: As a Pluto-ruled, fixed, water sign, you are not afraid to go deep. One of your greatest strengths lies in your ability to navigate subterranean emotions. When it comes to recreation though you tend to observe and discern before jumping in to join others, making the Perky Triangle Top and Classic Bikini Bottom a natural match for your classic, sexy style.What’s your swim sign?

Sagittarius: Known for your bold and adventurous nature, it’s essential to choose a suit that adds to your sense of freedom. The Lace-Up One Piece offers a stylish fit without detracting from functionality. A play on a classic look with a modern twist, this suit will have you feeling confident to enjoy outdoor activities as you desire while feeling amazing in your body.

Capricorn: As a Saturn-ruled, cardinal earth sign, your ambitious nature has a deep respect for tradition, but simultaneously loves to stand out. The Scoop Top and Cheeky Bottom provide a sexy swimsuit appeal while simultaneously offering enough structure in the top to help you feel grounded and secure (two quintessential Capricorn words).

What’s your swim sign?

Aquarius: Even though you are known as the water bearer, as a fixed air sign, you relate more to the theoretical than emotional realms. Meaning one of your greatest talents remains your knack for design and fashion. The Push Up Underwire Top and High Waisted Bottom complement your unique style while highlighting your fashion-forward sensibility. You won’t doubt yourself in this sophisticated suit.

Pisces: Known as the sign of the fish, your proclivity to water (you are a mutable water sign after all) makes swimming an activity that not only soothes and heals; but, also enlivens you at your core. So, you want to choose a suit that offers enough support that you feel confident staying in the water for hours. The Scoop One Piece offers a classic cut that will having you feeling great in the water. It’s also perfect with a long skirt or cut off shorts, amplifying your poetic sense of style too.

Rather than worrying about how you’ll look on the beach, I recommend using shopping as a time to set an important goal: to cultivate self-compassion. Making sensible, stylish shopping choices, that align with your body’s needs and your personality will support you to do just that. As you shop for summer clothes, embody your signature cosmic style. Enjoy!
