The Winter Accessory That Your Zodiac Sign Says You'll Love
Let's face it: at this point, you and your trusty sweatsuit have never been closer. If nothing else, our unofficial pandemic uniform has made one thing abundantly clear — accessories have the power to take your outfit from 0 to 100 in a flash. While the "minimal effort" section of your wardrobe has surely garnered the most wear over the past several months, chic yet practical accessories are hands down what has allowed pandemic fashion to actually feel like Fashion with a capital F.
As for which winter accessories you should be looking to buy specifically, look no further than the zodiac. Sure, designers, celebrities, and influencers are credible sources for the next biggest trend, but when considering the accessory that feels the most personal to you, what better place to start than the stars? The basic rules of astrology are such that the sun's movement across various astrological stars (and specifically its placement at the time of your birth) directly influences your personality and behavior, both of which influence your style.
With that in mind, we consulted astrologers Jennifer Fukushima and Chelsea Hunter of the personalized horoscope app Sanctuary, who both suggested that shopping based on your zodiac sign may be the key to unlocking those fashion finds you'll never want to part with again. Whether you're a hard-at-work Capricorn or a deeply mysterious Scorpio, here are the winter accessories that deserve an immediate spot in your wardrobe rotation.
Alo Yoga High-Waist 4 Pocket Utility Legging
Aries (March 21-April 19)
The fast-paced Aries needs somewhere to store their cell phone and keys in a way that won't hold them up. Enter: yoga pants with pockets. These Alo Yoga High-Waist 4 Pocket Utility Leggings ($118) are a must have, says Hunter. "Aries will find a way to work up a sweat and beat their [opponent] in their own unique style."
L'ovedbaby Organic Thermal Onesie
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
As the goddess of abundance, Taurus loves nice things (and really, can we blame them?), but in the name of sustainability, let's make it organic, shall we? "The bull knows how good it feels to lounge for the day," Hunter says. She recommends an organic cotton or wool onesie, like L'ovedbaby's Organic Thermal Onesie ($54), to get this sign through the winter.
UGG Genuine Leather Shorty Tech Gloves
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
According to Fukushima, Geminis are social media mavens who love to stay connected. The sign is extremely outgoing and sociable, so in a socially distant world, you're likely to catch them on their phone often. But have you ever tried texting in the cold? That's where these smart phone-compatible UGG Genuine Leather Shorty Tech Gloves ($110) come in. Just like that, the Gemini is back to texting and chatting all day long.
Dluxe by Dearfoams Carol Scuff Slide Slipper
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Most of us are homebodies these days, but the Cancer sign is the original homebody. Because of this, Fukushima says you can expect the Cancer's go-to winter accessory to be one that's cozy and comfy — so why not something that's made for indoor wear? This Dluxe by Dearfoams Carol Scuff Slide Slipper ($15) fits the bill.
Fenty Blockt II Mask Sunglasses
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You have to be pretty OK with being the star of the show in order to indulge in fashion's mask sunglasses trend, like these Fenty Blockt II Mask Sunglasses ($440). Here's looking at you, Leo. "Leos will find their way into the light," Hunter says. "They live for basking in golden beams or in the limelight of other's attention and admiration. Let them have their drama and fun with big frames (or maybe even snowboarding goggles). Why not!"
Free People Uma Buckle Belt
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Known as the sign of all work and no play, Hunter says Virgos always strive for efficiency and exude class. "This sign is never short on finishing their to-do list in style," Hunter says. "This simple and elegant Free People Uma Buckle Belt ($48) is the ideal finishing touch to [accentuate their] figure while they get it all done."
Free People Super Scrunchie
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Fukushima describes Libra as the trendsetter, so it's safe to say they're no stranger to letting a statement accessory spruce up their winter looks. This Free People Super Scrunchie ($12) is a stellar choice for the leading Libra, even if they're just throwing it on to run errands.
Sterling Forever Black Velvet Choker
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Often thought to be captivating, alluring, and even secretive, Scorpios are the perfect match for this Sterling Forever Black Velvet Choker ($38, originally $42). "This '90s throwback trend is just right for helping Scorpios get in touch with their deep, dark, and sensual side," Fukushima says. Plus, it pairs seamlessly with a slouchy oversize sweater.
Brother Vellies Varsity Socks
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Everyone needs to know a Sagittarius, aka the ultra fun and spontaneous friend. And with such a title, every Sagittarius needs a winter accessory fit for an impromptu excursion. "Sagittarius knows that the adventure is a rich ride," Hunter says. "Let them explore the wild terrain of the world and enrich their spirit with the best outdoor socks ever." These Brother Vellies Varsity Socks ($35) feature pops of color that will stand out when paired with sneakers or lug-soled combat boots.
Alexander McQueen The Tall Story Tote Bag
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
As a Capricorn, you probably wish you had a dollar for every time you've been called hardworking or ambitious. At the very least, this Alexander McQueen The Tall Story Tote Bag ($2,890) highlights this admirable trait. "Capricorns own it and they love to show it," Hunter says. "Their industrious drive to climb needs room. This useful and sexy tote can help them carry it all."
John Elliott Cashmere Blend Balaclava
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
"Activist Aquarius needs to stay warm during outreach," says Fukushima of the sign often rooted in humanitarianism and bringing about world change. "[That's why] a balaclava, like John Elliott's Cashmere Blend Balaclava ($198), is a great choice for this outsider sign with a big heart."
Nialaya Rose Quartz Necklace
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
"Sensitive and spiritual Pisces needs a little help getting away from the harsh realities of pandemic life," Fukushima says. The dreamy sign may be known for being prone to escapism, but this Nialaya Rose Quartz Necklace ($129) is said to block negative energies and promote positive vibes and unconditional love. We recommend layering it over your favorite turtleneck.
