People Magazine recently announced their 2013 “Most Beautiful” list with Gwyneth Paltrow heading the class this year. Amongst the Hollywood beauties photographed for this year’s issue was singer Pink whose honest approach to her music and life in general makes her one of our favorites. The singer and soon to be actress (she’s coincidentally starring in a film with Gwyneth Paltrow) rocked some seriously red lips and a super chic “Love” ring on her pinky finger. You can steal Pink’s look for a fraction of the price with the Rue de Chic “LOVE” ring which is available in gold and silver. As for her smile, that can only be attributed to the fact that the artist is truly living her dream life.
They say accessories make the outfit. A statement necklace, detailed drop earrings, a cocktail ring or draped scarf in a shocking color can put a stylish stamp on the simplest look and all of a sudden, you’re elevated to the next level. After a winter of layering, we at Rue de Chic are skipping into spring with a little help and inspiration from some stylish and seriously sexy men of the past.
This spring is all about the perfectly structured wool fedora. Not to be left behind, Hollywood has already taken note of this trend. Check out the many ways to pretty up this look below.
Country darling, Carrie Underwood is at it again–releasing the video for “Good Girl”, her first single off her latest album. The video not only sees Underwood playing two stylish roles but sporting some amazing outfits and accessories as well. One of her stand out looks is a floral print Elizabeth and James dress featuring one of spring’s hottest trends–the asymmetrical hem. (more…)
Summer is the time to experiment with a melange of beautiful colors and this summer all the gorgeous colors we love are coming together to form an irresistible watercolor print. The boldness of this print takes inspiration from the 70s era which dominated the catwalks for spring and summer.
The watercolor print is easy to dress up or down. You can take it to the beach, lunch or dinner. It’s bold yet practical and works with a variety of skin tones. It will also carry effortlessly into fall which means you’ll be getting a lot of use from it. Check out the Stars already in love with this print.
Below is a picture of me wearing one of my favorite watercolor print dresses pre-spring. For summer, I pair it with bold-hued strappy sandals (both high-heeled and flat) or dark cognac colored wedges. You can also throw on a boyfriend blazer to tone the colors down. This addition works whether you’re dressing up or going casual. What are your thoughts on the watercolor print? Would you wear it?
With the holiday season comes a slew of parties and get-togethers which always leads to the inevitable question – “What am I going to wear?” Take a cue from Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively and go for the unexpected; pair a super feminine dress with a chic leather jacket. This is such an easy look to incorporate and you’ll stand out in the endless sea of monotonous holiday cocktail dresses. Blake’s layered dress in hot pink is sexy but her leather motorcycle jacket balances out her look. If you’re not so hot about the pink, a deep teal or shocking blue is a great alternative. When it come’s to leather jackets, only the softest will do. Stay away from bulky or stiff leather, go instead for light weight, fitted leather that hugs your every curve. Check out the exclusive “Gemma” layered leather jacket below.
Leather is hot this season and no one knows that more than the newly minted “Vogue’s Best Dressed” headliner, Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively. Showing off her mile long legs and cementing her status as a fashion risk taker, this budding trendsetter takes a risk in a turquoise blue leather skirt with zipper details and a sequin and feather jacket. Give this trend a try with the “Mercer” turquoise blue leather dress with an exposed back zipper from Rue de Chic below.
‘Tis the season to be jolly and colorful…This time of the year always brings with it, an assortment of gorgeous colors. It’s difficult not to fall in love with the deep reds and emerald greens that the holidays inspire. This season however, there’s another color that’s hard to ignore. Whether it comes in a dress, a structured jacket or even a scarf, cobalt blue is such a rich and elegant color that it always makes a statement. A lot of celebrities are also aware of the transformative power of this shocking color. Star’s like Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara, Desperate Housewive’s Eva Longoria and Model, Petra Nemcova all look chic and confident in cobalt blue.
Afraid to try out this trend? Start small and infuse your wardrobe this winter with a pop of color. Check out the cobalt blue scarf below…at only $24.50, it’s a hard bargain to pass up.
The statement necklace is a piece that will continue to make a strong showing this summer. In the above photo, Eva Longoria Parker stuns in a black, key hole halter and a chain link statement necklace. Below is the “Gaelle” Necklace Set from Rue de Chic. Whether it’s spicing up your casual day look or making a bold statement in collaboration with an evening gown, this is one “pièce de résistance” that is guaranteed to make you stand out!
This summer, get ready for a showing of all things 80′s. From cut-off shorts to off the shoulder tops and neon colors, it’s bound to be an interesting fashion time travel. To stay on the chic side of this trend, you can play with a slightly over sized / slouchy off the shoulder top in classic black.
