Aries: Bejeweled Flip-Flops

"Bold and adventurous, Aries love standing out in a crowd," says astrologer Bella Nguen.

As the fiery first sign of the zodiac, Aries like their outfits to have a bit of "sparkle and flair," Nguen adds. This is why she recommends metallic or jeweled flip-flops.

Whether these energetic, early risers are presenting in the boardroom or heading to brunch with friends, these sandals will do the trick.

Taurus: Leather Slides

"Practical and reliable, Tauruses value comfort and quality," notes Nguen.

Maria Hayes, astrologer and tarot reader at Trusted Astrology, adds that this down-to-earth sign prefers low-key summer activities like "boating or walks by seaside boulevards."

That's why Nguen suggests "durable leather slides that make putting shoes on or taking them off an easy task." And, despite their ease, these sandals will still fit with stylish Taurus' wardrobe.

Gemini: Espadrilles

These social butterflies are also the chameleons of the zodiac, changing their mind and style choices often.

"Therefore, espadrilles will complement their creative spirit as they can be worn with anything, casual or dressy," says Nguen.

Hayes adds that Gemini "loves to be active, but not too active," so these sandals will work for summer jaunts on the boardwalk, as well as all those backyard barbecues they've been invited to.

Cancer: Birkenstocks

Cancers are the homebodies of the zodiac. "Emotional beings at heart, Cancer finds serenity in coziness and security," says Nguen. And what type of sandal provides more support and comfort than Birkenstocks?

Hayes recommends this brand—or one of its many dupes—so that the Crab doesn't have to "fuss and worry about their summer vacation."

Sturdy Birkenstocks can be worn chasing around kids on the beach, running errands, or simply relaxing at home, Cancer's favorite activity.

Leo: Strappy Heels

"Confident yet charismatic, Leo loves being in the limelight while remaining stylish," notes Nguen.

She recommends strappy heels for this attention-seeking sign to "make them feel glamorous while showcasing their legs effortlessly."

And unlike some other signs, these party animals will have no problem dancing the night away no matter how high their heels are.

Virgo: Mules

If you know one thing about Virgo, it's probably that they're the perfectionists of the zodiac. And this attention to detail does not waver when it comes to their clothing choices.

"Virgos are modest individuals who seek elegance and need timeless pieces," points out Nguen. Which is why she says a "sleek, sophisticated sandal" like mules will accentuate their sense of style.

This sign can invest in a timeless leather pair that'll ensure they get their money's worth.

Libra: Slingbacks

As the sign of the scales of justice, Libras seek balance in everything they do. But they're also one of the friendliest, most social signs, so they're very particular about their appearance.

Hayes says classic slingback sandals give Libra "the ease they need to go around their summer activities" while still looking stylish.

"Not to mention, [slingbacks] keep the wearer's feet cool and comfortable," Hayes adds, so Libra will never feel off-kilter.

Scorpio: Gladiator Sandals

"Intense and passionate individuals like Scorpio love making statements while expressing themselves through edgy fashion," explains Nguen.

She recommends studded or lace-up gladiator sandals as the perfect accompaniment to Scorpio's typical wardrobe of black and leather.

Plus, the intricate design of these sandals is a metaphorical representation of Scorpio's complex personality.

Sagittarius: Flip-Flops

"Optimistic and adventurous, Sagittarius loves to explore and have fun," Nguen says of the world traveler of the zodiac.

This is why Hayes says it's a "no-brainer" that they're paired with plain-old flip-flips.

Whether Sagittarius is hopping on a plane, hitting the beach, or attending a backyard bash, these shoes have the carefree, "cool vibes" they seek, says Hayes. And if they get misplaced? No big deal!

Capricorn: Huarache Sandals

"Ambitious and disciplined Capricorns are hardworking individuals who hold themselves to professional standards," shares Nguen.

They'd prefer to spend their hard-earned money on a pair of footwear that will make them feel powerful in the office rather than something more fun, so Nguen recommends Huarache sandals because they are reminiscent of leather loafers or oxfords.

And it's basically a given that Capricorn will invest in a quality leather pair of sandals that'll last for years to come.

Aquarius: Clogs

"Innovative and eccentric, Aquarius likes to be unique and original," says Nguen.

And since this intelligent sign's preferred summer activity is "lounging around," they'll have no problems with a clunky clog sandal, says Hayes.

With their wooden base and leather straps, these stylish sandals will work well with whatever fun and funky outfit Aquarius has put together.

Pisces: Menorcan Sandals

Summer is the season for emotional and sensitive Pisces, the fish of the zodiac.

They love the tranquility of crashing ocean waves, having sand between their toes, and sitting outside on warm nights daydreaming about anything and everything.

"For these people who just like to be comfortable and go along with the flow," Hayes says the effortless style of Menorcan sandals is perfect for Pisces.
