Memorial Day weekend has offically begun! Pools and beaches are opening for the season, grills across the nation are getting fired up for barbeques, and friends and family are gathering to give a warm welcome to summer. As always, amidst all of this celebration, we want to look our best. Memorial Day events tend to be anything but formal, so what's a girl to wear? We need something to take us from the inaugural summer softball game to the cocktail party by the bonfire...something cute and casual, yet fashion savvy. In other words, we need Joie...
Joie represents the perfect combination of casual comfort and effortless style. Simple silhouettes with a bohemian sensibility make this the go-to brand for all of your Memorial Day escapades!
P.S. Looking for the perfect way to style your new Joie tops? Nothing says summer style better than white denim, so check out our huge selection from J Brand!
Memorial Day Weekend is just around the corner! One of our favorite holidays, Memorial Day is all about fun. With no huge feasts to prepare and no presents to purchase, we can actually enjoy a stress-free celebration as we ring in the summer in style. And, whether your packing for a weekend away or simply prepping for good times at home, Rouge is ready to outfit you for all of your Memorial Day events...
Make your first beach day of the season one to remember in a stunning Kichu Wrap paired over a chic and flattering Karla Colletto colorblock one-piece. Finish off the look with patent leather flip flops from Yosi Samra, and, as always, wear sunscreen!
Whether your attending a backyard cookout or a country club lobster bake, we have the outfit for you. For a casual look that still highlights your sweet side, pair a silk floral blouse from Rebecca Taylor with the Tali Cropped Zip Jean from J Brand. If you'd prefer to wear a dress (without looking overdressed!), opt for effortless cool with a Tart Maxi Dress. Either way, Jack Rogers Navajo Sandals complete the look while adding classic polish.
A three day weekend means three nights to party! Transform yourself from daytime sun goddess to nighttime sexy leading lady with a fitted black dress from IRO, Kiley Durham jewelry, and Sigerson Morrison heels.

One of the biggest trends in today's fashion world is ethical production. Throughout the years, fashion has earned a reputation as a rather cut-throat business, so we couldn't be prouder that, today, as an industry, we are coming together to make the world a better place by going green and promoting ethical sourcing and fair trade. At Rouge, we believe not only in supporting this effort but also in looking great while doing so. Thus, we are proud to introduce coolchange...
Inspired by and made exclusively on the enchanting island of Bali since 1997, coolchange focuses on maintaining socially responsible production methods with each collection. Local Balinese artisans stay true to traditional techniques using hand crafted prints and Batiks. Hand dyed garments are laid to dry in the sun achieving a vibrant one of a kind piece. Experience the beach with effortless elegance from Bali with love.
coolchange is now available at Rouge, so stop in to store to support style with purpose...
One of our favorite aspects of travelling is dressing the part. Staying at a fancy resort requires a wardrobe complete with stylish cover-ups, effortlessly chic dresses, and photo-ready casual wear. Never do we look so put together at breakfast as we do when we are sipping coffee at the hotel omelet bar. So, who's furnishing this vacation fashion fantasy? Our favorite line of resort and island inspiration, Calypso St. Barth...
Since launching its first store in 1992 in St. Barth, Calypso St. Barth has grown from a modest resort-wear boutique to a luxury lifestyle brand with a passionate international following. Inspired by travel, culture & the arts, the brand reveals unique & feminine pieces, which women of every age have come to love. From exotic dip dyed caftans to luxurious cashmere cardigans, the brand’s apparel and accessories are designed for women to endlessly mix and match into countless combinations of effortless elegance.
Calypso St. Barth may be our "go-to" for jetsetting, but its inviting color palette, breezy fabrications, and simple elegance make it the perfect line for summer days in and around Princeton as well...
Fingers crossed, it looks like the warm weather is finally here to stay! So, rather than tiptoeing around it, it is time to finally dive right in and celebrate Spring! And, here is no better way to welcome the season than by donning one of its hottest color trends: mint green...
While some of us shy away from green for fear that it might make us look a bit queasy, mint is a universally flattering shade that works with all skin tones to brighten and highlight our complexions. It is fresh and cheerful while still maintaining the pastel softness that Spring romantics yearn for. So, pop into Rouge and add a hint of mint to your wardrobe!

This Mother's Day, spread a little sunshine!
Sometimes, in the midst of diaper changes, temper tantrums, and overall crisis management, it is hard to remember that behind every mother lies a woman. Before she became your mother or the mother of your children, she was just a girl with nobody to take care of but herself. And while her priorities may have changed--and she wouldn't "unchange" them for the world--she still deserves a little "me time." So, this Mothers' Day, give her back some of the care that she has doled out so generously, and help her get in back in touch with the young woman she once was... Give her the Gift of Beauty, Youth, and Skincare...
Skincare that is sure to keep mom looking youthful and feeling cared for is available at Rouge, so stop in and give her the gift that she is simply too selfless to give herself...
