Style & Scopes: May Plus Size Horoscope
As The Curvy Fashionista editors, we write about stuff we love and we think you’ll like too. We often have affiliate partnerships, so we may get a share of the revenue from your purchase.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You’re fearless and ambitious by nature so it’s no surprise that you’re already planning to have a great summer full of things you may have never done before. Because you favor the bold and love to stand out, look for dresses with interesting silhouettes and bright colors.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
With things opening back up you’re most looking forward to planning an intimate getaway with your nearest and dearest. You love being surrounded by luxury but also appreciate nostalgia so look for dresses with luxe fabrication that can be worn out and when you have some downtime.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You’re busy, Gemini-but is that anything new? With your social calendar filling up, you’ve never been more excited for the summer. Because you love interesting pieces that make a statement, look for dresses that can also be styled in a number of ways… just like you!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Sensitive and intuitive, you probably spent the last year working on healing from the inside out and figuring out what you wanted your life to look like post-pandemic. You’re craving fabrics that are soft, breezy, and classic to match your optimistic outlook.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
It’s all eyes on you, Leo, get ready to shine! Your love of being in the spotlight means that all summer long you’ll be strutting yourself on the beaches and at social gatherings. Be sure to seek our dresses that highlight your curves with bold styling that amplifies your lioness nature.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
It’s likely that you’ve spent the last year focusing on your passions, your work and your relationships— really strengthening your roots in the main pillars of your life all while balancing a ton of extra side projects. Take a break Virgo. Look for dresses that get you into vacation mode.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
A lover of beautiful aesthetics and balance, we would guess that you’ll be spending your summer in places that are as Instagrammable as they are harmonious. Be sure to keep to the theme (you will) and seek out dresses that embody the summer season and keep you looking fresh and chic.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
You may be a pro at social distancing but you really have been craving connection lately and you’re ready to make a few summer plans. You’re ready for intimate getaways with your nearest and dearest and you’ve been so ready for a bit of a wardrobe refresh. Stick to classic silhouettes that make you feel in charge and on top of the world.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
It probably feels like you have been cooped up at home for years because as the resident wanderlust traveler of the zodiac, staying at home has not been optimal. It’s likely you’ve even spent hours redesigning your home to even feel like you’ve been on an adventure. Look for dresses this season that are ready to go and pack well.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Dependable and hardworking, you need a break from the everyday. You successfully have been able to navigate your new normal without many hiccups so we are all for Capricorns unwinding in paradise this summer. Because you know exactly what you love and like to stick to classic essentials, how about looking for a dress that does just that but also makes a little statement?
Aquarius (January 20- February 18)
As a true idealist, you’re not only ready for the summer season, you’ve already started to manifest your perfect summer months ago. It’s likely your year has been spent taking care of those around you, so we suggest dresses that are full of comfort but that make you feel beautiful.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
You’ve been on the go 24/7 — even if just mentally it seems. It’s no wonder you’ve been counting down the days to summer and since we’ll likely find you near the water hiding away with those closest to you, we recommended looking for dresses that do double duty at the pool or out and about.
As much as we’ve all enjoyed our time in loungewear, we think it’s safe to say that this summer will be the summer of the dress… so dress accordingly.
