The Ideal Eyewear for You, Based on Your Zodiac Sign (Psst: They’re All Covered by Insurance)
Fashion is loving function these days (hello, dad sneaks and fanny packs), and that means glasses have officially entered style-statement territory. But from cat-eye to geometric frames, bright colors and classic clear, pinning down your personal eyewear flair can feel a little daunting. Some help finding the best glasses, please?
Just like you look to the stars for guidance on relationships, managing your calendar, and determining whether your mood is a result of mercury retrograde again, taking a celestial approach to fashion can help you find pieces that make you feel like your best self.
Take it from personal stylist, confidence coach, and astrologer Ariel Catalasan, who believes that tuning into who you are on the inside is key to how you present yourself on the outside—and she relies on the zodiac signs to help inform that process.
“Where the planets were [when you were born] influences your unique essence,” Catalasan says. “Style is so personal and naturally reflects that unique essence, or who we are on the inside. Looking at…your birth chart can help you understand why certain styles resonate with you and others don’t.”
Since eyes are the window to the soul, Catalasan thinks they're a great place to start—so she's offering zodiac-inspired eyewear intel with help from Marchon NYC. Designed for all genders, face shapes, and sizes, Marchon NYC has an ideal pair of glasses for every sign in the sky.
Bonus: All the frames are covered by insurance, so while you're taking in Catalasan's starry-eyed suggestions, you can book an eye exam with your local VSP network provider. With a current report on your eye health and an updated prescription, you’ll be set to choose which fresh frames are written in the stars for your sign.

Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19)
“Savvy, capable Capricorns are the bosses and CEOs of the zodiac. Making a positive impact in the world is important to this ambitious Earth sign,” Catalasan says. Getting dressed, you lean on effortlessly elegant, versatile pieces in black and neutral shades—like these polished and practical cat-eyes. Meeting, adjourned.
Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18)
As an innovative thinker, rebellious spirit, and visionary (yes, that’s you), you embrace your unique essence and inspire others to do the same. That translates to style, too. “Aquarians dare to be different by wearing pieces that are original, like they are,” Catalasan says. “The clear crystal of these glasses feels both futuristic and trendy, helping Aquarians stand out and make a statement.”
Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20)
Dream on, dreamers. Imaginative and hopeful, you are often gifted with artistic (and sometimes even psychic) talent and are drawn to colors that exude your ethereal nature. Shades of the sea—purples, blues, and pinks—are a natural fit for this water sign’s mystical vibes, Catalasan says.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Go-getters, this one’s for you. The name of your game is fearlessness, honesty, and vigor… with a side of humor. “Aries aren’t afraid to rock daring statement accessories or try out new trends,” Catalasan says. For a look to match that fiery energy, add a bold pop of color—like these red frames—to any outfit.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Practical and luxurious, grounded but always appreciative of opulence and beauty, you love a vintage moment with a modern twist. “[Taureans’] style is ultimately classy, luxe, and comfortable,” Catalasan says. “With its earthy tortoise pattern, this cat-eye pair has a vintage vibe for this Earth sign to enjoy.”
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
The Gemini symbol of twins represents your multi-passionate intellect and love of dualities. You might simultaneously seek minimalism and embrace the unexpected. “With both a matte black and gold design, these [frames] are a twist on a classic that strives for fun and practicality, like Gemini,” Catalasan says.
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
Loungewear lovers, listen up. Compassionate, intuitive, and always on the lookout for comfort, “Cancers adore self-care nights in, relaxing, and quality time with loved ones at home,” Catalasan says. These blush frames are her pick to effortlessly complement that peaceful, cozy lifestyle.
Leo (July 23–Aug. 22)
The Leos have entered the building. Confident and courageous, you radiate main character energy and might gravitate toward “dazzling, head-turning style with dramatic details like sequins, bright colors, and animal prints,” Catalasan says. And as “the royalty of the zodiac,” you’ll always be going for gold.
Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22)
“Dedicated, thoughtful Virgos are nurturing healers and ambitious forces of nature,” Catalasan says. You’ve figured out how to be both soft and strong (um, goals) and you like to appear equal parts edgy and delicate. To strike that balance, Catalasan suggests two-toned tortoise-shell frames for their earthy, practical vibe with a touch of gentleness.
Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 22)
Represented by the symbol of scales, you are in constant pursuit of balance. That means a mind for diplomacy, gratitude, and romance—and an aesthetic that favors neutrals and matching sets. “These taupe frames are versatile and effortlessly chic, just like Libras,” Catalasan says.
Scorpio (Oct. 23–Nov. 21)
High emotional intelligence and perceptiveness make for many a Scorpio-led deep chat. You approach life with intention and intuition—and with a magnetic, mysterious, and sensual presence, you tend to gravitate toward darker tones. Catalasan opts for this moody purple pair to match that Scorpion depth.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21)
You’re wired for optimism, independence, and exploring, and have a propensity for animals, nature, and learning new things. With a warm, light-hearted aura, your signature fit is both comfortable and fun. “A tortoise-shell pair complements this fire sign’s philosophical yet free spirit,” Catalasan says. So grab these specs and get adventuring.
