Scorpio Season | A Transformative Style Guide
It's no secret how Samhain, Halloween and Dia de los Muertos all take place during Scorpio season. Ruled by the 8th house in traditional astrology, Scorpio governs all things taboo; from matters of sex, death, and the occult, to the enigmatic realms of mystery and finance. This time isn't just for dusting off your broomstick and rewatching The Craft (although we won't stop you); it's an invitation to fully embrace the profound transformation that Scorpio's radiate.
Scorpio, reigned by the dynamic forces of Pluto and Mars, wields the unique blend of transformation and determination, creating a cosmic synergy that defines its enigmatic and intense character. As we draw inspiration from some of our most stylish Scorpios, such as Kendall Jenner, Alexa Chung, and Tracee Ellis Ross, we're delving into a fashion realm characterized by black-on-black ensembles, seductive silhouettes, and daring sartorial statements.
To get you inspired for this season, we've rounded up some of our favorite Scorpio-approved looks and gifts for fall/winter 2023.
There's a reason you won't find delicate white linen or silk pieces in this edit, and that's not because Scorpios lack the appreciation for such fabrics. On the contrary, Scorpios are drawn to materials and silhouettes that exude strength and resilience, opting for structured pieces that match their affinity for authority.
We chose the Black Illi Crop Wool Blazer for this reason. Boasting a strong shoulder and a cropped cut in one powerful statement piece, it encapsulates Scorpio's empowered spirit. And lucky you, there's a matching skort.
Anna Wintour, a Scorpio, famously said her penchant for sunglasses was a means to conceal her thoughts. It's a sentiment that resonates deeply with the enigmatic nature of Scorpios. IYKYK.
Introduce these Studio Cleo sunglasses into your collection, and channel your inner Anna Wintour. Because in the realm of Scorpio, keeping your next move close to the chest is an art form in itself.
Indulging in luxurious leather accents and finishes is a sophisticated and fitting tribute to your inner Scorpio. With their fixed and determined nature, this sign gravitates toward elements that exude strength and resilience.
Leather, with its timeless appeal and innate durability, mirrors their powerful presence and unyielding character. The Flattered Alya Black Croco Leather Heels are no exception.
Just as Scorpios possess an ability to ignite desire and fascination, a captivating fragrance has the power to evoke deep emotions and leave an lasting impression.
Much like the enigmatic sign, sensuality in a scent goes beyond the surface, delving into the mysterious and magnetic. Soft notes of vetiver and sandalwood in Maison Louis Marie's No. 04 Bois De Balincourt Perfume Oil do just that.
Is the color red genuinely seen as a risk? Well, that's a matter of perspective. But for a Scorpio, the color red holds a special significance, as it pays homage to their inherent power and passion.
This rich and vibrant hue supremely encapsulates the spirit of Scorpio and the Bebe Cherry Red Organic Tee is the perfect (and safe) transition into a bold fall wardrobe staple. And if you're craving more red, this Red Wool Winnie Scarf will do the trick.
A timeless black dress is a wardrobe essential, and it aligns perfectly with Scorpio's enigmatic fashion preferences.
To add seduction and allure to the mix, the Bec + Bridge Julien Asymmetrical Maxi Dress offers a unique take on a classic wardrobe staple. Perfect for all of your witching duties.
