Shopping for School -- by the Signs

Taking your kids back-to-school shopping can be a fun experience -- or not! Learn how you and your child can enjoy prepping for the new school year with this sign-by-sign guide on best shopping strategies, budget and fashion.

Aries
Aries will do best with a back-to-school shopping experience that is fast and furious. Don’t leave too many options for store choices -- just go and get it done. Respect the Aries sense of individuality when it comes to fashion and everyone should emerge from the experience just fine!

Taurus
Set a budget with your Taurus shopper, and stick to it. This practical sign understands the value of money, but also appreciates the finer things in life. You will need to let Taurus take their time and carefully choose the items they want to purchase. The more you rush them, the slower they’ll go.

Gemini
For Gemini, shopping may be more about the social experience than the purchases themselves. Except of course when it comes to communication devices like phones and computers. Shopping with friends will make the outing go more smoothly as well.

Cancer
Cancer may need to be encouraged to shop. Try sparking their imagination, choosing stores that support their creativity and help them express their inner selves. As Cancer discovers that fashion is a mode of expression, they’re sure to be excited about compiling a back-to-school “look”.

Leo
This luxury-loving sign benefits from a budget, as they can easily overindulge and use shopping as a way to express their innate creativity to the extreme. Make sure your Leo shopper balances their need for flair with school dress codes!

Virgo

Back-to-nature Virgo may enjoy consignment shops as a way to keep things green. Organic materials and sustainable fabrics will also appeal to this environmentally oriented sign. Virgo needs time to pick out the perfect items, so go slow and let them decide what to buy.

Libra
This is fashion-conscious Libra’s favorite time of year. They probably have a detailed plan of styles and brands they want to purchase. Making decisions isn’t Libra’s forte, so limit their options or else they may get confused and overwhelmed by shopping.

Scorpio
Some Scorpios are fine with a fully black wardrobe, but the more adventurous will want to make more of a statement. Sexy, mysterious yet age-appropriate is probably a good balance to strive for when taking your little Scorpion shopping.

Sagittarius
Sagittarius shoppers are probably more interested in sporting equipment and exercise clothes than they are with every-day wear. Split their back-to-school budget between school supplies and sports gear so they can feel fully equipped for the fall sports season -- as well as their studies!

Capricorn
Capricorn will likely choose conservative outfits that make a good impression with their teachers and classmates. Encourage your little Seagoat to step outside their comfort zone with a new color or style to help them stretch their sometimes-strict approach to life.

Aquarius
Self-expression and individuality are important to Aquarius. Allow them a certain amount of free reign when it comes to choosing their style for school, but stand firm about outfits that could be potentially get them into trouble.

Pisces
Artistic Pisces will approach their back-to-school purchases like works of art. Allow them to express themselves, even if it doesn’t fit in with the standard look. These sensitive shoppers may start trends with their unique sense of fashion.
