Rue Horoscopes: April


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Believe it or not, there’s a creative streak in all of us. Put yours to good use this month and mix up some inventive DIYs to ready yourself for warm weather. Think homemade body scrubs, nail polish, or even candles, and voilà! You’re insta-ready for spring.

Okay, being in charge can be fun – but you know what’s even better? A day free of responsibility. So take that next sunny spring day off, grab an indulgent hazelnut macchiato, and read a book cover to cover. Hello, best day ever.

Brilliant ideas require some serious follow-through. Case in point: That pre-loved vintage Chanel bag that’s quilted to perfection is now a part of your timeless handbag arsenal. Here’s to turning dreams into reality.

You’ve been curating that flirty, breezy, and effortlessly chic spring wardrobe for months now… so what are you waiting for? The weather may not be cooperating just yet, but it’s a fact: if you wear wedges, spring will come.

Rather than putting off your responsibilities (those shoes aren’t going to re-heel themselves), bite the bullet and get them out of the way. Besides, you have more important things to do, like hoard tons of new sandals.

You started layering chunky statement necklaces with delicate pendants way before the glossies did; your name is practically synonymous with Lucite accessories. Next up? Celestial prints, here you come.

There’s something to be said about blending two worlds. Introducing the Preppy Free Spirit: a bright, put-together blazer meets laid-back cutoffs and a pair of boho-beaded wedges. Just add sun and you’re ready for Nantucket or the West Coast.

Throwing that first outdoor BBQ of the spring season is no easy undertaking, so make sure to divvy up the jobs. Task that overeager neighbor with appetizers and put the girls on bartending duty – then you’re free to put all those DIY décor pins to good use in the backyard.

Catch up on last month’s style forecast, and never miss a fashion beat.
