horoscopes

We may not be experts in astrology or the moon’s position, but we do know style alignment. And in forecasting the next month, here’s what’s in store for you.

Taurus
Big changes are on the horizon. Translation? Your shoe collection is about to get a major overhaul. Toss those worn-in sandals from last year (along with the excuses) and restock with one pair for every spring trend – bold stripes and ankle straps included.

Gemini
Quit being apprehensive about rocking a cutout one-piece at the beach this season and take the plunge. Not only will you set the crazy-stylish tone among your own posse, you’ll take the entire ocean by storm.

Cancer
The quickest way to make some changes? Step out of that comfort-zone hibernation and into a refreshingly new experience (three-day-long spa retreats totally count).

Leo
Don’t be thrown by recent drama. Instead, surround yourself with things that make you incandescently happy, like brand new strappy wedges, those first few drinks on a patio, and froyo. Lots of froyo.

Virgo
If there’s one thing you can count on for spring, it’s (what feels like) a completely new wardrobe. And with certainty comes the ability to plan. Puerto Rico, here you come – umbrella-clad cocktails are calling.

Libra
There’s a secret behind that silver lining everyone’s been talking about (girl-crush Jennifer Lawrence not included). It comes in the form of metallic, buttery leather accessories. Feeling more positive yet?

Mom Style

We’ll cut right to the chase: we’d be lost without our moms. Not to mention our aunts, sisters, grandmothers, and all the other women out there who have paved the way to great style by making sure we didn’t leave the house sporting a pair of flannel PJ pants.

So this Mother’s Day, we’ve figured out the best way to say thanks: by proving to the world that her style’s unrivaled.

Send us a photo of your mom’s impeccable style or tweet us her best fashion advice to put her name in lights – or at least the chance to appear on our login page or social media channels. You can submit your photos and advice via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #momstyle.

We have a feeling this is one Mother’s Day gift she won’t soon forget.

horoscopes

We may not be experts in astrology or the moon’s position, but we do know style alignment. And in forecasting the next month, here’s what’s in store for you.

Aries
The whole world may seem like it’s against you right now – your size sold out in two minutes flat again?! – but don’t freak out. Here’s a fix: Set better reminders, block out time on your calendar (you have a VERY important meeting at 11AM), and click faster than you’ve ever clicked before.

Taurus
You have strong beliefs, especially when it comes to wardrobe rules about transitioning from cold temps to bring-on-the-beach weather. The first cardinal rule for April? Break out the white pants, immediately.

Gemini
Life is all about negotiations – you know that better than anyone. You bartered for that statement-making tapestry in the living room and your wardrobe is the result of some very quick thinking at a sample sale. Now, it’s time for you to talk your way to a higher credit limit.

Cancer
If you’re looking for some clarity (and let’s be serious, who isn’t?), there are a few simple steps you can take to turn your home into the best place for clear thinking. Step 1: Put out a vase with an odd number of bamboo stalks. Step 2: Clear the clutter – all of it. Step 3: Keep color palettes neutral.

horoscopes

We may not be experts in astrology or the moon’s position, but we do know style alignment. And in forecasting the next month, here’s what’s in store for you.

Pisces
You know that overload of compassion you’re feeling to help pretty much everyone? Use it as inspiration for your looming closet clean-out and donate more than usual… and then rapidly replace those items with some printed skinnies and a silk blouse.

Aries
There are few things better than feeling totally independent – and no one knows this better than you. Example A: You saw that wrap dress. You wanted that wrap dress. You hit Quick! Buy It. Independence rules.

Taurus
Spring has a tendency to be exhausting – between achieving New Year’s resolutions, saying goodbye to winter, and that annual cleaning, who could blame you. Just don’t forget to take a breather. Especially if it’s in the form of a very long bubble bath.

Gemini
Sometimes it’s hard to balance those more fun items on your social calendar with your less-than-favorable obligations (patio party or project proposal?). On second thought, forget the balancing act – springtime is synonymous with party time.

Cancer
If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that expression is all about being in the moment. And this moment is calling for (lots of) animal prints and a seriously bold crimson lip.

Fashion Books We LoveWhile most of us have mile-high stacks of Vogue at our desks (for professional purposes only, of course), we do dive into more substantial reading from time to time. Here are our favorite fashion-forward texts:

Nostalgia in Vogue: This compilation includes a selection of Vogue’s famous “Nostalgia” columns published since 2000.

Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life: This controversial account draws on letters and other records to reveal the less-discussed (and scandalous) chapters of this influential designer’s life.

Grace: A Memoir: Vogue Creative Director, former model, and international icon Grace Coddington gives us a witty, blunt narrative of a life lived fashionably.

The Fashion Book: Aptly named, The Fashion Book is a coffee table book to end all others. This A to Z tome takes a comprehensive look at the most important names in fashion, dating all the way back to the 1860s.

The Little Dictionary of Fashion: A Guide to Dress Sense for Every Woman: Penned by the one and only Christian Dior, this indispensable source covers the fashion fundamentals every woman should adhere to.
