Hello, April. We’re all so glad you’re here.
We’re willing to look past your signature showers and dreaded Tax Day* in order to warmly embrace what you really represent: change. Changing seasons, changing moods, changing wardrobes. Navigating any kind of transition can be tricky, however, so we’re here with fashion horoscopes to provide some style guidance.
With Aries season well underway, you may find yourself feverish with ambition thanks to action-oriented Mars, who rules this sign. You’re setting goals, moving fast, making sh*t happen — it’s all about output. But by April 19th, Taurus takes over with Big Venus Energy and your focus may shift to input. Behold the power of passivity. Are you resting? Swaddling yourself sufficiently in cozy, natural fibers? By the end of the month, Taurus, the Zodiac’s pleasure-lover, urges you to spread out a picnic blanket, root down and lounge hard. We hope you have a pleated prairie dress at the ready.
Between what’s written in the stars and spring’s fickle weather patterns, April may feel like a roller coaster for both you and your closet. But who doesn’t love a fashion challenge? So, we say, let’s ride.
*N.B. The IRS has extended this year’s deadline to May 17. Huz-zah!
Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn
While Earth signs are known for being, well, down to earth, the better kept secret is that they are the Zodiac’s materialists — not in the pejorative, materialistic sense — but rather, these folks appreciate everything related to the materiality of the physical world. Think quality craftsmanship and luxe textures. This month, reach for outerwear with unique detailing, a perfectly constructed bucket bag or a sumptuous knit cardigan.
Gemini, Libra & Aquarius
Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, also known as Air signs, are no stranger to “the winds of change” — in their universe, it’s move or be moved. When it comes to getting dressed, these dreamers and doers aren’t afraid of indulging in a bit of fantasy. In April, we need their optimism. Flowing house dress, anyone? How about a romantic jumpsuit? Vintage florals, yes please. We love how Air signs face every fashion decision with a sense of adventure. You might say, it’s a breath of fresh air.
Aries, Leo & Sagittarius
Warmth, passion, drive — these are the qualities we love in our Fire-sign friends. An unapologetic embrace of their inner greatness also makes Aries, Leo and Sagittarius a group of born trendsetters. Since blazing new fashion trails is kinda their thing, April is the perfect time to embrace trends like dramatic puff sleeves, (very) wide leg trousers and joy-sparking bold prints.
Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces
Needn’t we remind you: rivers run deep. To step into the universe of the Water signs is to be transported to a land of intuitive, free-form thinking and action based on thoughtful observation. During a particularly water-logged month, it’s best to go with the flow — that’s to say, let your emotions dictate how you dress. Ideas include: a flattering trench for strolling in the park, Zoom-worthy blouses that’ll wow your coworkers or tried-and-true denim that you know you’ll wear again and again.
