Happy Birthday, April babies! If you’re feeling extra inspired to get creative with fashion this month, consider showing more of your edgy personality with unique zodiac fashion. You may choose to do so with colors that stem from your birth flower or birthstone. Whether you’re the courageous, independent, and optimistic Aries (Mar 21 – April 19) or the reliable, patient, and practical Taurus (April 20 – May 20), you can show your zodiac pride with your sign’s symbolic colors. Keep reading to learn how you can create a fun look with two key basics: the little black dress and black leggings. No matter what season we’re in, both of these clothing items are wardrobe staples that remain hot must-haves for various types of fashion rebels! Springtime included.
Famous April Babies
From Reality TV to the big screen and the fashion world to billion-dollar businesses, these famous April babies know how to maintain a style that’s their own, while continuing to be trendsetters in their own right. Can you relate to their personal styles? You got Kristen Stewart, the actress with goth style who helped to turn the Twilight movies into a cult following phenomenon with her role as “Bella”; Kourtney Kardashian, the oldest down-to-earth sibling of the Kardashian empire; “Hazel Baby,” a Reality TV star who is both loved and hated on “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood”; Jessica Alba, actress and founder of The Honest Company, which creates non-toxic homecare products; and Victoria Beckham, a former member of the Spice Girls, fashion designer, and wife of David Beckham. From androgynous to minimalist to glam, the styles of these famous chicks are attainable and totally relatable!
When it comes to the little black dress – the clothing item that every rebel should own (and love!) – the beauty is in the versatility factor. Whether your LBD is a cute mini dress or a spaghetti-strapped maxi dress, it can be dressed up, dressed down, and worn with anything under the sun. Seriously! So, if you’re really in the mood to wear colors associated with your birth stone or the actual stone in itself, a black dress is the perfect piece to play around with.
The Aries girl can explore her love for the dark side with shades of carnelian, a blood-red mineral. With vibes of glam goth and romanticism, the carnelian birthstone can be worked into an Aries’ outfit in multiple ways. Think sexy steampunk heels, a gothic pendant, and a pentagram or skull handbag. The Taurus girl, on the other hand, can explore the bright appeal of sapphire, a gem that exhibits breathtaking shades of blue. As for the unique accessories that will accent a Taurus’ little black dress in a fun, casual way, try sporting graffiti-printed canvas sneakers, sapphire vintage-inspired earrings, and a handy tote. And, of course, should April showers hit -- throw a black leather jacket with your dress!
Birth Flower Statements
Black leggings are so versatile, no matter your particular style. Whether you obsessively wear them to lounge around in or glam ‘em up for a night out in the city, enjoy a nice level of comfort with a major dose of sexiness…especially when you’re wearing a pair of black latex leggings! This fabric naturally gives off an edgy vibe, perfectly fit for a punk rock music festival or dining over discussions on cult movie classics.
The honeysuckle flower – the birth flower of Aries – has vibrant shades of pink, yellow, and white. This gives several options when it comes to styling! To stand out against a black graphic tee and leggings, consider a spiked pink handbag, yellow floral stud earrings, and a green leather bracelet to highlight the lovely surrounding leaves of the honeysuckle. The poppy flower – the birth flower of Taurus – is bold and bright with red! Whether you want to add a subtle touch of poppy symbolism to you outfit with angel red stud earrings and a red bracelet, or go ultra dramatic with red patent leather boots! No matter what – a black corset is always a lovely top to flaunt with leggings. To keep your shoulders warm, turn to a leather jacket or distressed denim jacket!
