Steal Their Style – Cancer Sign Celebrities

If you’re looking to really splash out and treat her on her birthday this year, why not take some gift inspiration from some of these stylish Cancer ladies?

Margot Robbie (born July 2nd)

Margot Robbie might go glam for the awards – renowned for her sophisticated red carpet looks – but her relaxed everyday style is a breath of fresh air.

This Australian actress stacks playful bracelets and wears her rings mixed and matched for the full boho look, blending materials, styles and colours to create a stacked effect. Check out some gorgeous handmade stacking jewellery from ChloBo to emulate her look!

Perrie Edwards (born July 10th)

Scrolling through her Instagram, it seems that this Saturdays star is very rarely seen without a delicate gold pendant (or two) round her neck. While Perrie is known for her boho chic style, it looks like this necklace in particular might mean something special to her.

Wearing one piece of sentimental jewellery every day is an effortless way to personalise your style, and going for gold adds that extra touch of luxury! Why not opt for something similar to Perrie like this Joshua James Gold & Diamond Engravable Disc Pendant?

Ariana Grande (born June 26th)

Ariana Grande likes to keep things simple – her jewellery style usually comes down to one statement piece. A clear favourite seems to be a 90’s inspired choker. We’ve seen her in everything from the classic ‘tattoo’ choker to elegant crystal options.

If you’re gift hunting for a keen fashionista, draw inspiration from the 90’s choker trend and give it a modern spin by opting for jewellery from the Swarovski Remix collection. These sparkling strands connect via a magnetic closure, allowing you to get creative and even invent your own stylish chokers!
