The rakish fellow you met last night with the suave dance moves, smoothly rehearsed lines, and your number listed as “Goddess #14” in his phone is fine for a flirt, but probably isn’t meet-the-parents material.
Used as an adjective to describe a dashing ladies’ man or a streamlined ship, rakish comes from the fusing of rake + -ish. He is stylishly handsome and prone to saucy, fast behavior. Synonyms include charming, flashy, and immoral.

Best of the New York Mens Shows
New York Fashion Week always showcases a relatively streamlined and clean set of collections for mens fashion. This year has been no different. Check out my pick of the best of the mens New York shows below:
Wonderful bomber jackets with contrast fabric and colours.
A mix of the dapper gent and a California street wise kid, in distressed bombers, shorts and camo prints.
Inspired by French men, and how they can break a girls heart this was a collection full of bright and vibrant prints.
A highlight of the New York shows, inspired by The Talented Mr Ripley and idle young Americans holidaying in the French Riviera. Sophisticated luxury.
A strong collection for young, streetwise, trend driven young men.
A blend between the street and the school corridor which works surprisingly well.
I adore the streamlined, slim aesthetic being show by this new Belgian designer. Sharp lines and much lusted after bombers.
