You go places together, you're seen together, you make a group impression. As a mom, you probably feel like that impression reflects directly on you -- and you're probably right.

There's almost nothing cuter than a matching mommy and baby outfit -- that's easy. But try getting a five-year-old to wear what you want her to wear, or an adolescent boy to listen to you about anything at all … this is not a job for the weak. And yet you take it on, because, providing your kids still think you're "cool" (or even better, "hot" "dope" or "sick") you will at some point be standing next to them in public.

With that in mind, here are some cosmically inspired ideas. What's your sign, mom?

Aries
Bold is beautiful. You’re drawn to the energy of bright colors and can do color-blocking like nobody's business. So don’t try to be too "matchy." Let everyone choose their own statement color in one of the cheery hues you're so naturally drawn to.

Taurus
Tactile Taurus falls in love with the feel of a fabric -- the softer the better. Get the whole family into one type of fabric -- a soft linen, silk jersey or summery seersucker and the effect is downright huggable.

Gemini
Clothing is communication to the Gemini mom, and you want your family's clothing to talk intelligently. Collard, button-down shirts and smart jackets will be a favorite of yours this season.

Cancer
The nurturing Crab makes sure that the family looks cared for, but you also want them to feel comfortable. Fit is a crucial element to the way you dress your crew. You'll make alterations if necessary to attain a silhouette that's perfectly cozy.

Leo
Your creativity is a source of pride, so you don't mind that your family shows up looking more like a group of individuals than a cohesive unit. You'll encourage your children to find their own fashion voice, even though that usually means wearing what's popular.

Virgo
Earth sign that you are, the trend toward "sustainable fashion" pleases you, and there's no time like now to hop onboard. You'll dress your family in clothing that has been created in a socially responsible manner that also happens to look modern and awesome.

Libra
You are meticulously appropriate. Wearing the right clothing shows respect to anyone around who has eyes. You'll be mindful that your daughter's skirts and shorts are a respectable length and your check the verbiage on your son's t-shirt with an urban dictionary to make sure it doesn't say anything offensive.

Scorpio
Break out the sunglasses. Your family arrives on the scene enshrouded by a glamorous aura of mystery. You don't fret about looking like you belong together, you just make sure that each person in your group has something undeniably cool about the outfit.

Sagittarius
You radiate worldly sophistication and your family follows suit. Or dress. Or, in the case of the season, printed jumpsuit. You shop at out-of-the-way places to make sure that each member of your family is in style, but is not wearing the same thing as everyone else.

Capricorn
You’re aware that clothing and status go hand-in-hand. Your family's clothes don't have to be expensive, as long as they look crisp and new. You don't mind using the iron and you're not afraid of tags that read “DRYCLEAN ONLY”. Better to err on the side of formality.

Aquarius
Florals with plaid? A ballet skirt with combat boots? You're a study in eclectic cool. Not everyone can pull off the offbeat combinations that you put together, but you make sure that your family at least has some funky accessories to work with.

Pisces
You dress to accommodate your mood, not the rules of fashion. Your wardrobe has something for every mood; make sure that your family has an array of choices as well. Your up-to-the-moment fashion sense requires that you shop for every season.
