Styleascope: Taurus (April 20-May 20) 

No sign is alike, so your wardrobes shouldn't be either.

Styleascope is a lighthearted horoscope that puts a spotlight on local fashion. Believe it or not, Zodiac signs say a lot about a person. They speak to an individual's strengths, weaknesses, romantic attractions, values, desires and ... fashion sense? Yep! The stars can serve as a personal stylist, too. No sign is alike, so your wardrobes shouldn't be either. My aim is to blend fashion and the cosmos by providing a guide to show you what's in store at local boutiques (and why your sign is telling you to wear it). Instead of the runway, I'll use the stars as my guide. So, what's your sign?

Name: Courtney James

Birthday: May 2 (She shares the sign with the classic style icon Audrey Hepburn)

Age: 22

Occupation: Program Assistant at the World Affairs Council of Charlotte

Do you read your horoscope? "I read my horoscope more often than I'd like to admit! It's obviously not always spot on, but I'm always interested to see the parallels between the advice it gives and how closely it coincides with what's going on in my life at the time."

The Taurus is above all things loyal, practical and cautious. These strong qualities translate into classic fashion. Not a fan of following trends, a Taurus will spend money (wisely) on a piece that will last for years. As an authentic and reliable sign, the Taurus tends to stick to luxury brands and are usually drawn to high-quality goods. However, also one of the laid-back earth elements, the Taurus' practical nature attracts them to soft fabrics. If an outfit restricts free movement, you can bet a Taurus will opt for something more comfortable. They're drawn to earthy tones like light hues of cream, green, pastel blue and pink. Earth elements are very much in tune with the physical senses, including sight, touch, smell and taste. Thus, the Taurus is very invested in small details, from buttons to pleats. Though headstrong, the Taurus rules over the throat and neck, so you'll most likely see them gallivanting about town with pieces that draw attention to these areas. Chunky necklaces and scarves are typical Taurean accessories. (Source: www.glo.com)
