Our New Year’s Resolution at Rouge? Be bold and try new trends! While we all have our own, defining sense of style that we should celebrate, sometimes we get stuck in the rut of our “clothing comfort zone.” We need to step out and embrace new looks so that we can revel in the art of fashion while having a little fun. New Year’s Eve is the perfect night to take a risk and try that look that you have coveted in the magazines and on the runway. Tonight is all about reinvention—stop into Rouge, and we will help you update your classic look and style your new beginning!
This See by Chloe piece brings all of the class and sophistication of the LBD with a modern, edgy twist! Leave the top buttons open, pop on a statement necklace, and some sky high heels, and you are ready to ring in the New Year!
While some call it “pajama dressing”—I simply call it perfection. Bid your tailor adieu and return the super-structured, restricting suits to your grandmother’s closet and embrace this fresh (and incredibly comfortable) take on sportswear. Silky fabrics with superb drape are the new separates. Pair a bright silk Parker top with some poly crepe pants by Joie and
then top the look off with a silky, floral Rebecca Minkoff jacket, and you will have redefined what it means to be effortlessly chic!
We all have our favorite t-shirts. They fit us perfectly. We can layer them under anything and everything or dress them up or down to wear them on their own. We love those tees, but let’s face it: they aren’t exactly landing us on the best dressed list. So, this New Year’s Eve, trade in your go-to top for the texture and romance of a little lace–you’ll be sexy and
stylish when that ball drops!
Blue jeans are great for every day, but this New Year’s Eve resolve to sport the hottest trend in denim: metallic! Pair with the lace tops above or your favorite leather jacket and show your friends what “Festive Attire” really means! Choose from one of J Brand’s two metallic shades…or, opt to stay true to blue with IRO’s metallic stripes.
Stop into store for more great ideas on how to ring in 2014 in style!
Happy New Year…and, of course, Happy Shopping!
As we say “good-bye” to Christmas, fashionistas everywhere are saying “hello” to Resort! The gift-giving pressure has been alleviated, the days are slowly beginning to get a little longer, and the first signs of Spring are sprouting at Rouge! We are particularly excited about the Ali Ro Resort Collection, as it combines the color and prints that we are looking forward to for Spring with transitional fabrics and silhouettes that make the looks “Buy Now, Wear Now” appropriate.
Launched in 2007 by Kathleen McFeeters, Ali Ro caters to the fun-loving, contemporary woman who embraces her feminine side. At Rouge, we are all about the printed dresses: they are the perfect combo of bright, flirty color and
sophisticated, figure-flattering shapes. Best of all they are both versatile and comfortable—perfect for daytime (think work, luncheons, and showers), but add a pair of killer heels, sparkly earrings, and a clutch and you have a great evening look for cocktails or a dinner out!
While we focused primarily on the printed dresses for Resort, we couldn’t resist adding one slightly more edgy, fashion forward piece to our edit. This coated jacket will take you through the rest of winter and right into spring in impeccable style…
Today, we dedicate our blog to the magic that the holidays inspire within us. From the spirit of gift-giving to the merriment of gathering with our closest friends and family, the Christmas season is simply enchanting. And since the
holidays are synonymous with a sense of whimsical nostalgia, we wanted to share with you some of the classic images have inspired us. These fashion icons celebrated the season with undeniable grace, poise, and style, representing both
the spirit of the holidays and the Rouge girl…
Wishing you all magic, joy, and, of course, style…
Time is ticking: only four days until Christmas! And, while many of us are in the final stages of our holiday shopping extravaganzas, we still need to apply some finishing touches. As you wrap your gifts and double check Santa’s inventory, you may notice that you need an extra treat or two to make your loved ones’ visions of sugarplums come to life on Christmas morning. A few last minute stocking stuffers will do the trick, and we have a huge selection of them ready and waiting at Rouge…
To alleviate any additional stress, we took the liberty of selecting the perfect mini gifts for everyone on your list. Without breaking the bank, you can add a little bit of surprise and delight to every stocking, ensuring a very merry Christmas to all!
For the Beauty Queen…
The options for make-up lovers are truly endless, be we suggest focusing on her perfect little pout. Every girl loves lip gloss, and it is the type of product you can never have enough of. For the more fun-loving lady, choose Philosophy Lip Shine. Hydrating and glossy, these come in flavors like Sugar Sprinkles, Raspberry Glazed, and Fresh Cream, leaving lips both soft and sweet for only $10! For a girl who favors a more “au natural” look, opt for the vintage apothecary appeal of Smith’s Lip Balm in Minted Rose—simple and refreshing!
For the Fashionista…
Skinny Tees Tanks are the ultimate must-have for any girl with an eye for style. Available in a rainbow of colors and basic black and white, Skinny Tees are very simply the “perfect” tank. They are bra friendly and look great on their own, or she can layer them under anything and everything as they smooth, slim, and highlight her shape. She will live in these—literally—so, at $32 per top, these are most definitely a great investment.
For the Party Girl…
Our favorite little socialites love to slip into bodycon dresses and plunging necklines before heading out on the town. While we love their bold style, we are always nervous that they are seconds away from a fashion disaster. So, quell those nerves by stuffing your party girl’s stocking with Commando products. From their Matchsticks (perfectly portioned double stick tape) to their truly seamless, no-show thongs, Commando products act as the ultimate survival kit for any wild night out!
For the Glamour Girl…
We all know a girl who truly believes that diamonds are her best friend. And, while the real thing is a bit pricey for Santa, these fun and uber glam Swavorski crystal studs by Bling (um, the name says it all!) provide maximum sparkle for a fraction of the price—only $25-$35!
Not sure which category your loved one falls into? No worries! A Rouge gift card makes a perfect stocking stuffer and gives your girl the gift of choice!
Ok, so we know it’s Christmas, and we’re supposed to be spending all of our time shopping for others and giving to the ones we love…BUT, can’t we love ourselves a little bit, too?! Don’t we deserve a treat—or two?—during this holiday
season?! Of course we do! And, it must our lucky day, because new pieces from IRO’s Resort 2014 line (a.k.a. the ultimate in self-indulgence) just arrived at Rouge…
IRO is an Advanced Contemporary line originally launched in 2002 by Parisian brothers, Laurent and Arik Bitton. By adding vintage-inspired prints, edgy details, luxurious fabrics, and textural interest to wearable silhouettes, IRO succeeds in achieving the fashion trifecta: cutting-edge style, unexpected comfort, and day-to-night versatility. Sexy, chic, and oh-so-French, IRO is favored by fashion’s elite including Sienna Miller, Rosie Huntington, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kate Moss. Translation? IRO is simply a wardrobe must-have.
So, since you’ve been so darn nice this holiday season, why not allow yourself this one naughty little luxury? Pop into Rouge and give yourself the gift of IRO—we promise, Santa would approve!
P.S. To those of you who are simply too virtuous to buy for yourselves, why not pick up a Rouge gift card and share your style with a friend?
Red velvet ribbons, twinkling lights, and cozy nights by the crackling fire: there is nothing more romantic than the holiday
season. Unfortunately, the build up to Christmas is so magical that we are often left feeling a bit let down on December 26th. So, this year, keep the allure alive by giving the gift of romance in three simple steps…
Step 1: Set the Ambiance
Give her the gift of mood lighting and enchanting aromatics with our Votivo candles. With scents ranging from Velvet Night to Red Currant to Joie de Noel lighting one of these candles will instantly transport her to a fantasy world of peace, tranquility, and sugarplum. Packaged to perfection, the Votivo boxes alone are sure to make her swoon!
Step 2: (Un)Dress to Impress
Whether layered under cashmere sweaters or worn on its own, nothing makes a girl feel sexier or more feminine than beautiful lingerie. A gift from Rouge’s selection of lacey Eberjey bras, panties, slips, and robes is sure to inspire passion in any woman…
Step 3: The Finishing Touch
In the spirit of the star at the top of the Christmas tree or the icing on those holiday sugar cookies, every woman deserves
to be romanced with a little bit of bling! And, since no romance is complete without a tear or two, look no further than Rouge’s Exclusive Teardrop Earrings. Choose from a rainbow of semi-precious stones set in 14 karat gold-plate to finish this love story in style, because sometimes all you need is a bit of sparkle to ignite that perfect holiday spark!
While, in theory, the holiday spirit has the noblest intentions—think “tidings of comfort and joy”—in reality, the gift-giving season can be rather stressful! As we make our lists and check them twice, many of us begin to panic about what to give that one girl who is always so hard to please. Come on, you know who I’m talking about—she is our friend, colleague, or family member who either seems to have everything already or simply never seems satisfied with the gifts we’ve tried in the past. Well, this year, you can put that panic to rest, because we have you covered at Rouge. Our suggestion? Give the gift of
Beautiful, healthy skin is a fashionista’s best accessory. Stop into store to
experience all of the amazing products that Rouge has to offer, but here is a
little taste to whet your appetite…
“Philosophy is a brand that approaches personal care from a skin care point of view, while celebrating the beauty of the human spirit. We believe in miracles and the beauty in everyone. Philosophy Products are designed to enhance or skin and well-being with multitaskting benefits and uplifting messages that create a fresh, approachable attitude toward beauty.”
For the fun, festive gal on your list, choose one of the holiday themed gift boxes. Packaged to represent the novelty of seasonal cheer, these products will give you glowing skin year round!
For the more classic, sophisticated lady? Opt for Hope in a Jar—tried, true, and simply perfect.
For over forty-six years, Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products, signature facial treatments and business practices have been based on a “holistic” philosophy. Our 100% natural skin care products are based on an understanding of the way skin works and its relationship with overall health, the goal being skin that is balanced and able to perform its natural functions
without dependence upon a slew of products.
With Dr. Hauschka, you simply can’t go wrong. The creams, body washes, and lip care are divine, but if you really want to splurge, the Eye Balm is as close as you can get to giving away the fountain of youth!
Beauty lies in the simplest and purest of things. kai brings this idea to life by using exotic fragrance and natural essences in our
light and intoxicating scent of gardenia wrapped in white exotics. kai captures the irresistible fragrance of the tropics in a full line of fragrance, bath, body and home care products. Breathe in the beauty of kai, and experience today’s most sought-after fragrance.
kai is all about the fragrance, so our best suggestion would
be to go with the eau de parfum. However, if you feel like that is too bold, the
body butter is sumptuous choice that leaves skin moisturized and subtly kissed
by that signature scent!
Finally, for the man in your life who deserves the best, try our Jack Black men’s skincare and shaving products. The Face Moisturizer, Beard Lube, and Post Shaving Cooling Gel make excellent stocking stuffers—or bundle them together for one big gift that will leave him looking—and smelling—utterly divine!
With so much more in store, we hope to see you soon!
We are all familiar with the boring, old rule: No white after Labor Day or before Memorial Day. Lucky for us, rules were
made to be broken! Over the past few seasons, we have seen winter whites emerge as a Fall/Winter trend, and we are absolutely thrilled. White offers a fresh, clean, and bright perspective to dark autumnal hues while still remaining neutral and easy to wear…
The Rouge girl’s favorite way to sport the winter white trend? Denim! We currently have two amazing white J Brand styles in store: the Grace and the Midrise Rail. With classic, skinny fits that flatter, you simply cannot go wrong with either silhouette. So, how do you wear it? The key is to pair winter white denim with seasonally appropriate pieces that add texture, weight, and contrast. Think chunky knits, wools, leathers, and furs. The possibilities are endless, but here are some suggestions for making winter white denim work for almost any (albeit, culinary-inspired!) occasion…
Have fun! And, of course, Happy Shopping!
Baby, it’s cold outside! Love it or hate it, you certainly can’t deny it: winter weather has officially arrived! Fortunately, while it is certainly time to bundle up, there is no need to sacrifice fashion for function, because we have both covered at Rouge…
Meet Eugenia Kim, the designer behind this season’s coolest, must-have winter accessories, and say goodbye to the days of shedding unbecoming hats and scarves at the front door. Eugenia Kim’s beanies are a November through March essential for every fashionista—you’ll never want to take them off! Handmade from the finest baby alpaca, they are warm, cozy, and incredibly stylish. Her coordinating “cowls” make for the perfect scarf; simply pull them overhead and
go—no fuss, draping, or tying required! Feeling extra glam? Opt for Eugenia Kim’s fox fur earmuffs—they literally define luxury!
After graduating from the Parsons School of Design, Eugenia Kim conceived of her collection in 1998, when she made a feathered cloche to cover up a bad haircut. Buyers and stylists immediately took notice, and before she knew it, boutiques and department stores alike were placing orders. Since then, Eugenia’s collection has become synonymous with the gold standard in the accessories arena, and this season was no different. Eugenia’s iconic styles were splashed
across the Fall 2013 pages of Elle, Glamour, Vs., Lucky, and Vanity Fair…
So, don’t let the cold weather get you down! Celebrate winter’s arrival in style by treating yourself (or a loved one!) to the luxury that is Eugenia Kim!
‘Tis the season for holiday parties! December is filled with occasions to dress to impress, and Rouge has festive attire for every type of fashionista…
Looking to complete the look? We recently received the perfect holiday shoe from Sigerson Morrison—it’s gorgeous, sexy, and has just the right amount of holiday shine! Best of all, it’s versatile enough to pair with any of the outfits above!
Happy Holiday...and, Happy Shopping!
