Capricorn Season | Embracing Quiet Luxury
Repeat after me: quiet luxury is a Capricorn birthright.
After scouring the internet for commonalities among those with Sun, Venus, Ascendant, or 2nd house in Capricorn, one undeniable trait emerges— understated elegance. From structured silhouettes to neutral monochromatic looks, Capricorn placements exude the essence of “quiet luxury” more than any other sign.
Notable figures representing this refined aesthetic include Caroline Bessette Kennedy (Capricorn Sun), Naomi Campbell (Capricorn Rising), Cindy Crawford (Venus in Capricorn), and Sofia Richie Grainge (Capricorn in 2nd house). And what's fascinating is that most of these icons are primarily celebrated for their timeless 90s style, accentuating the evergreen quality inherent in Capricorn fashion. Standing the test of time, each individual serves as living proof that sophistication never goes out of style.
Ruled by Saturn, the planet of contraction, discipline and responsibility, there’s no coincidence that those with Capricorn placements master the quiet luxury aesthetic with such purpose and curation. This is partially due to Capricorn’s pragmatic tendency when it comes to materialistic items. Saturn is a slow moving planet after all, so there's not much room for spontaneity with a Capricorn's wardrobe. Instead, the Capricorn demeanor leans towards form and function — an affinity to covertly luxurious items, investment pieces with enduring value, high-quality materials, and refined classics that get better with age.
As we navigate the transition from Sagittarius to Capricorn, we are grounded back into reality, where dreams evolve into purposeful goals, and the pursuit of a refined lifestyle becomes an art form. In a world often captivated by fleeting trends, Capricorn’s commitment to grace and functionality is a beacon of sophistication – a Dear Society credo.
