As Leo Season takes her final bows, we enter a new realm: Virgo Season. Earth Signs like our Virgo friends here, often get categorized firstly and foremostly as, well, grounded. And while grounded they certainly are, Virgos are also known to be loyal, sensual, intelligent, logical thinkers, dedicated workers, and kind, helpful friends. Although they love to encourage those around them, Virgo sun signs tend to be a little hard on themselves… they’ve been accused of perfectionism a time or two. You might recognize these traits in some of our favorite famous Virgos like BEYONCÉ (heard of her?), Bernie Sanders, Amy Poehler, Florence Welch, and Jennifer Hudson. These are meticulous, diligent problem solvers, people who get things done (and done right). Virgos are the first to lend a helping hand or show up when you need them - they’re happy to do it, but they’re also total suckers for a show of gratitude. Virgo Season is August 23 to September 22 - if you’re lucky enough to have a Virgo you call a friend, read on to find the perfect gift for your grounded gal pal!
Virgos, like their other Earth sign sisters, sometimes get cornered into a very brown color scheme (again with the grounded thing!) but earthy tones don’t have to be boring. Our picks for a Virgo color palette come from the far reaches of the home planet - a deep oceanic turquoise, crystal pink, saturated clay red and a natural-light-emulating butter yellow.
Virgos are sensual creatures, inspired by and drawn to beauty. The new Studio Studs in Rose Quartz check that box and are a sweet and easy addition to any Virgo look. Soft pink swirls of semitransparent, lightweight clay imitate the look of quartz and show playfully on either side of a gold half-moon shape. Eye-catching but subtle, these are the perfect pick for a crystal collecting, flirty Virgo.
For the practical, natural, voice-of-reason Virgo, the Light Trace Earrings in Butter Yellow are the perfect choice. An unfussy, lightweight statement earring that will add a soft ray of light to any look, these are simultaneously down to earth and out of this world. We’d love to go back in time and offer up these earrings to Jennifer Hudson’s (stunning) Oscar’s red carpet look from 2015.
Perfectionist, detail-oriented Virgos love a matching moment - scratch that itch, and give your fave Virgo a matching set of the deep turquoise leather belt bag + keychain + Light Trace leather statement earrings. You can always depend on a Virgo to show up put meticulously together head to toe, no clashing here and not a hair out of place - they’re sure to cherish this highly refined take on matching accessories.
Our final gift pick for earthy Virgos is the Point Move leather statement earring in Red. You can’t miss these babies, they are the perfect eye-catching finish to a look - even for a classic, casual Virgo, these oversized stunners are sure to please. With jeans and a romantic puffy sleeve top? *swoon.* The earthy, brick red color and matte textured finish will pair effortlessly with any Virgo closet. In our literal wildest dreams, we like to imagine how Beyoncé would style these earrings.
Your Virgo friend is great at being there for you, cheering you on, and getting their hands dirty to help you through. Your Virgo friend totally has your back! Return the favor this Virgo Season and treat them to their new favorite accessory from Cold Gold! Happy Virgo Season! Soak in the rest of these Summer days, and we’ll see you back here this Fall for our Gift Guide to Libra Season.
