Rouje’s Hotel California Collection Is L.A. Cool-Girl Chic & You’re Going To Be Obsessed
As you listen to the beginning of the Eagles’ song “Hotel California,” the opening guitar instantly transports you to the hazy and romantic setting of Los Angeles in the 1970s. Don Henley sings, “On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair/Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air,” and the song sets the tone of an era many — including the fashion industry — still long for today. And despite everyone’s lust for Parisian style, Rouje’s Hotel California collection is making a strong case to head to the West Coast for your next set of essential summer pieces.
Using the breezy ocean waves and California sunsets as its inspiration, the Parisian clothing brand has created a collection of dresses, tops, shoes, and accessories for summer. Combining the cool and laid-back essence of the Golden State with the effortless and romantic style of France, Rouje’s latest drop includes pieces with playful prints and vibrant colors that you’ll never want to take off.
The summer collection boasts a ton of must-have pieces, but if there's one thing Rouje does really well, it's dresses — and you’ll definitely want to add one into your closet. As you start putting together your summer work wardrobe, opt for the $195 Paloma Dress, which features a button-down front and collared neckline. Another great option is the Mathilda Dress, also $195, which comes in a pretty cherry print for summer.
Just in case you’d rather wear a jumpsuit, the Suzi Jumpsuit, $200, has a low back and romantic ties at the shoulders, making it an easy option to dress up or down. Style it with the $210 suede Frida Heels and a jacket for a date night, or accessorize with a pair of flat sandals and the Augustin Handbag, which is $135, for a more relaxed and bohemian-inspired ensemble.
If you're searching for chic tops, you can’t go wrong with the $150 Jose Blouse. This boxy shirt will look as good with a sleek skirt for the office as it will with a pair of trousers. On those days off, the $135 Ondinette Blouse is an essential top for summer picnics or barbecues thanks to its lightweight and breathable cotton material.
