With stylish Venus moving into down-to-earth Virgo from August 5-29, there’s never been a better time to rock these denim trends.
This sturdy, go-with-everything staple fits the Venus in Virgo ethos to a tee. Crisp. Clean. Classic. The style gods couldn’t have sent us this denim deliverance at a more optimal moment! Virgo is the sign that governs our day-to-day work: It just makes sense to embrace the fabric that originally outfitted laborers, right?
Certainly, denim has come a long way since Bavarian immigrant Levi Strauss started production in 1853. But dungarees are having a moment again, perhaps owing to the ubiquitous effect of Jupiter’s tour through Virgo from August 11, 2015 to September 9, 2016. Classic, looser-fitting cuts are everywhere now; a nod to some of the original, factory-produced jeans of the Gold Rush era. Skinny styles and distressed denim show no signs of disappearing. Instead, they are showing up embellished with funky patches or Yeezy’d out in earth tones.
