Sure, the on-court competition at tennis’s main event is fierce, but it’s the courtside action that has our attention. A-list celebs (including members of the royal family) fill the stands to cheer – and their fashion game never serves to disappoint. Playing to their advantage? Knowing how to look chic among the crowd. Take a peek at some of our favorite past looks.

Tennis StyleAppropriate as ever, the Duchess of Cambridge sported classic tennis white in this springy dress by Zimmermann, adding a pop of color with her pashmina and clutch. Her best accessory? That perfect blowout.

How to Wear a RomperSunday Brunch

Few things are more fun than being invited to a friend’s patio for a summer BBQ. Spirits are high, and the glasses of wine? Let’s just say they’re getting refilled. So when your red wobbles onto the tablecloth, don’t stress. The answer to your problem is likely right in the pantry.

How to Remove Wine Stain
Grab the artificial sweetener, and try this:

  1. Open and sprinkle a packet over the stain. For maximum absorption, let it sit throughout the rest of the BBQ.
  2. Within 24 hours of scraping the sweetener off, rinse the tablecloth in cold water.
  3. Launder as usual. (Pro tip: Swap out the artificial sweetener for distilled white vinegar if the cloth is cotton, a cotton blend, or permanent-press.)

And hey, if the stain just won’t quit, there’s always another checkered cloth to be found.

Have what it takes to nail this classic look? Of course you do. Just snag these five seaside staples.

Preppy StyleA Printed Shift
The brighter, the better. Go for classic florals or nautical prints. Bonus points for adding baubles.

Preppy StyleAn Iconic Sandal
Two words: Jack Rogers. There’s just something about the whipstitched style that makes us (and our outfits) feel complete.

Preppy StyleClassic Sunnies
Ray-Bans seriously have it made in the shade. Opt for mirrored lenses and put a modern spin on an old favorite.

Preppy StylePastel Shorts
Pastels are practically neutrals. Think of these bottoms as your blank canvas and pair from there.

Preppy StyleA Go-To Tunic
This top is down for whatever. Toss over your swimsuit by day and pair with white denim at night.

Let’s be honest, the number of puppies we follow on Instagram just about tops the number of fashionistas. But our faves? The accounts that merge the two – obviously. Check out our list of the top five stylish canines, then follow them immediately. You’ll be happy you did.

Instagram Toast Dog1. @toastmeetsworld
This fabulous spaniel might just be as famous as her dad @thefatjewish. Her trademark floppy tongue has won the hearts of A-listers: She gets front-row treatment at Fashion Week, surfs with Mara Hoffman, and even scored a Karen Walker campaign.

Lady Gaga Dog Instagram2. @missasiakinney
Not only is this Frenchie @ladygaga‘s best accessory, she’s also the star of the most recent Coach campaign, Coach Pups. She even got celebrity photographer Steven Meisel to capture her good side.

Watch out world: We’ve got an author on our hands. Dubbed The Most Stylish Dog in the World, this Shiba Inu scored a book deal, thanks to his dapper outfits. In The New Classics, readers can find the timeless staples every man needs in his wardrobe.

15-06-24_pupsofinstagram_NEVILLE4. @nevillejacobs
Owned by fashion designer @themarcjacobs, it’s no wonder this bull terrier rubs elbows (paws?) with some of the world’s top models – hello, Christy Turlington, Cara Delevingne, and Kendall Jenner.

15-06-24_pupsofinstagram_BOO5. @buddyboowaggytails
We all know this fluffy Pomeranian like the back of our hands (he’s been famous for quite some time). When it comes to style? He’s mostly in his birthday suit, but when he dresses up, he does it right.

Want to treat your furry friend like Instagram royalty? Stock up in our The Pet Shop: Tail-Wagging Beds, Leashes, & More Boutique, which opened Saturday, July 18, at 11AM ET.

Slip-On Sneakers
Comfortable can be chic. And Kendall proves it. Just pair these kicks with a mini or maxi for a fashion-forward (yet functional) day look.

Mini Bag
This mini silhouette can be worn anywhere – and with everything. No wonder it’s Kendall’s go-to.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Dear friends,

At Rue, we speak loudly. Last week’s unfathomable act of violence during a Bible study at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church is the latest in a year filled with race-related escalations. We mourn the nine innocent lives lost in Charleston, as well as the victims of racial prejudice everywhere.

For the rest of the day, Rue will be pausing business, closing all of our Boutiques, and only offering one specially designed T-shirt. This symbolic tee is a small way for us to speak up for the better world we need to create. All of the net proceeds from the sale of this T-shirt will be donated to nonprofit organizations that help to bridge our racial divides. Join us and take a stand for equality everywhere.
