What Are You (Really) Wearing? The Lowdown on Chinos

Second only to the polo shirt, there are few summer styles as preppy as the chino pant. We’ve admired the short version (sans polo) as a longtime Kennedy family favorite for touch-football games – but what exactly gives this staple its completely casual appeal? Like most menswear styles, the chino pant is military-inspired. It was […]

What Are You (Really) Wearing? Board Shorts or Swim Trunks?

  Board shorts or swim trunks? That is the question. Aside from inseam length, what exactly is the difference between these two menswear swim styles? Board Shorts This surf-inspired style was originally designed to have a longer inseam to help your skin avoid direct contact with the surfboard. These durable shorts are almost always unlined, […]

What Are You (Really) Wearing? The Cork Breakdown

From wedges to wall décor, it seems cork is popping up everywhere this summer. And sure, it’s a given that this material works well as a wine stopper, but what makes it such a fashion favorite?

What Are You (Really) Wearing? The Mother-of-Pearl Rundown

You’ve noticed mother-of-pearl accents on everything from watch faces to buttons. If you’re like me, though, you probably haven’t given such details much thought beyond admiring their luster.

What Are You (Really) Wearing? The Story Behind Seersucker

A seersucker piece is a timeless classic in any wardrobe – but what exactly makes this sunny fabric a summertime staple? Seersucker is cotton with a slightly subdued stripe design. It’s woven in a way that puckers the material and elevates it away from the skin. The shirred effect gives seersucker breathability and makes it […]

What Are You (Really) Wearing? Ready-to-Wear Raffia

Raffia, as we all know (and love), comes from a genus of Raffia palm trees native to the tropical regions of Africa. Fibers are carefully removed from the underside of each leaf and sun-dried to produce natural string. Similar to hemp twine and straw, these palm fibers are then woven to make breezy neutral accessories. […]

What Are You (Really) Wearing? All About Space-Dyed Knits

Space-dying – also known as dip-dying – is a technique used to give yarn a multicolored, tie-dyed look. The dyed colors repeat themselves on a single strand of yarn in segmented patterns. When the yarn is woven, the repeating colors produce unique and unpredictable horizontal stripes. These patterns are often made with coordinating shades for a slightly […]

What Are You (Really) Wearing? All About Jacquard

There’s no denying the luxe look of a jacquard sheath dress – but what exactly gives this fabric its luster? The first thing to know is that jacquard is a woven pattern, not a print. And that sought-after shine? Multicolored threads – often metallic – are used in most elaborate designs against a contrasting satin […]

What Are You (Really) Wearing? All About Crochet

Crochet is essentially the chic cousin of a classic knit.

Styling Director

Ten years ago, I launched a personal shopping business. It was my gateway to styling, from editorial shoots to film sets and, finally, e-commerce. I’m a tomboy at heart, so naturally I have a soft spot for the perfect grey fitted sweatshirt and a great pair of flats.

Senior Stylist

My first foray into styling was a stint in the wardrobe department on the show What Not to Wear. I often find inspiration in street style, with my personal look skewing on the sportswear and androgynous side. Head-to-toe black? I’m all about it. If you see me with a bright lip, be concerned.

My career started in personal shopping, where I worked with a global set of well-heeled clients to furnish their wardrobes and homes. That led me to the world of fashion editorial, first at Lucky and now at Rue. I’m a storyteller at heart, whether it’s curating an icon’s style or capturing trends. Outside the office, you’ll find me wandering the halls of the Met.

When it comes to my style aesthetic, I’m constantly inspired by things other than fashion (think old movies, the book I’m currently reading, and architecture). I dress for my mood, so it’s not unusual to see me in leather and Dr. Martens one day, and penny loafers and a cardigan the next.

For nearly a decade, I’ve worked in e-commerce telling style stories. The ones that stand out most? They go deeper than just trends. Think the history behind a Turkish rug or the craft that goes into a pair of Italian boots. That said – you won’t find me taking my own personal style too seriously. If it surprises and delights me, I’ll wear it.

John Camilleri

Creative Director

With more than 20 years in the fashion industry, I’ve worked on everything from mass-market brands to high-end advertising agencies. My kind of men’s style is all about refined simplicity – easy, accessible, and not overthought. Right now, I’m super excited about the all-American look and the iconic labels and personalities that bring it to life.
