Seafoam Green vs. Blush Pink: The Great Fashion Week Debate

New York Fashion Week saw its fair share of colors come down the runway, but seafoam green and blush pink were the ones that really caught the Rue team’s eyes. In fact, our Fashion Director and Lead Copy Director have been battling it out over which one will be the color of the season ever since. Check out each of their stances below, then decide for yourself. (As for me, I’m staying impartial. They are my bosses, after all.)

Outside the Tents: White-Hot Blazers at Fashion Week

Labor Day, what? This week outside the tents at Lincoln Center, winter-white blazers were popping up everywhere. Bloggers, editors, socialites – all wearing some version of the crisp cream jacket, a look many a magazine predicted we’d see this fall.

And the trend’s must-have accessory? Why, a Tide to Go pen, of course.

Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

We can’t stop talking about (and looking at pictures of) New York Fashion Week. And Pinterest is only perpetuating the problem.

1. With so many people rushing around, it’s important to know who’s who.

2. Runway makeup is reimagined every season.

3. That moment when you realize street style is almost competing with the collections.

4. These shots make us feel so much closer to the front row.

5. Only the best of the best? Don’t mind if we do.

Can’t get enough Pinterest inspiration? Check out past boards that caught our eye.

Let’s Hear It For the Boys: The New Business Casual Cropping Up at NYFW

When it comes to men’s business dressing, we typically see a lot of the same. Black. Grey. Three-season wool. And pleats – way too many pleats. There are even theories out there that laud the boring and ordinary. Not to mention, it’s easy. Wearing the same thing every day is simple. Nothing to think about. “What should I wear today? Oh, I’ll just mimic what I wore yesterday and the day before that. Done.”

But switching it up and putting thought into your look is a good thing for your career. For one, you’ll take more pride in your appearance. Two, you’ll stand out among the sea of pleats. Three, you’ll look original and open to advancing new ideas.

So far at New York Fashion Week, I’m seeing that men’s business casual is getting a fresh update for Spring 2014. Here are a few reimagined looks spotted at the Nautica Black Sail Collection and Todd Snyder shows.
