Emerging from the forest mist, a woman kneels at a creek. Wrapped in a gossamer gown that glints silver in the moonlight, she glows faintly like the moon above. A stag nuzzles the bow slung across her shoulder. This woman is no mortal. She is the goddess of the moon, Artemis. Celestial beings have forever enchanted mortals like ourselves gazing up at the stars. How can I look like this lunar goddess? Fret not my modern star children, let me tell you.
The main symbols associated with Artemis are a bow and arrow, the stag, and of course the moon. You can play with different variations of the moon by choosing different stages like crescent moons, or full moons. Other symbols to keep in mind when choosing clothing and accessories for your outfit would be stars, clouds and antlers. Basic symbols to use
Fabrics are not as important so long as they fit the color palette but they can help achieve the ‘goddess’ quality in your look. Opt for silks, satin, chiffon, fuzzy knits, velvet, or shantung. All of these fabrics fall into three main categories: light, shimmery, or fluffy.
ALL THAT GLITTERS
In general pick out pieces that use the symbols mentioned earlier. Our Luna collection has both the crescent moon and stars, making it the perfect piece for this look. You could choose the Luna Choker, or one of the rings to complete your look. As for which gemstones to choose, go for blue lab sapphires, opals, and moonstones. Moonstones seem the natural choice being named after the moon and looking like it.
Entire outfits will vary based on your own style whether you like yume kawaii, cosplay inspired, French girl, or minimalist fashion. Outfits will also vary based on the season and the occasion. But here are two outfit ideas to consider:
Fancy occasion: strappy, long blue dress, paired with silver heels and accented with gold and silver jewelry. Perhaps the Luna Choker as a statement piece. Sweep your hair up into an elegant low bun or do a half up half down with sparkly bobby pins. You could either make your makeup natural with silver eye shadow or go for an editorial look with more pronounced colors.
Winter cozy: Throw on an oversized fuzzy light blue sweater with dark blue jeggings. Instead of necklaces wear rings like the Luna Transformation Ring to amp up your look. Pair with white sneakers and dangly earrings with maybe stars or moons. Pull your hair into a high messy bun and do minimal makeup with the exception of eye liner and gold/silver shimmery eye shadow.
