Aries are the leaders of the zodiac, usually having a very active and on-the-go lifestyle. Nobody can compete with your level of dedication and drive. You have a lot you want to accomplish, so sometimes you just need your hair out of your face while you tackle the day ahead.

A visor is the perfect accessory when you're going non-stop but still want to look your best. Just because you have a lot on your plate doesn't mean you can't be stylish while doing it. Try pairing it with a cute outdoorsy jacket or your favorite matching workout set for a fun and sporty vibe.

Taurus: Cloche Hat

Ruled by Venus, the planet of romance and beauty, Taurus is a bit of a fashionista. But you're not the type to blindly follow the trends; you have a very particular taste and defined sense of self, so your wardrobe is likely full of statement pieces and slightly expensive, well-crafted items.

A cloche hat will help elevate your looks but not distract from them. Hallmarked by their bell-like shape that fits snuggly against the head and frames the face, cloches first gained popularity thanks to Coco Chanel. Today, they're a posh way to add a little fashionable flirtation to any outfit in your closet.

Scorpios are passionate and intense, which is reflected in your style. Trends aren't your thing; you'd rather experiment until you find that one piece that complements your personality.
