New beach styles launched!

If you’ve got your mind on the beach and a day of boating, don’t worry about what you’ll be wearing. With the latest swimsuits debuting last month and our new beach styles just launched, it’ll be smooth sailing!

Here’s the details on the newest beach styles just launching

  • Our new Graphic Caftan will get you noticed on the beach! It’s loose and flowing with a bold and graphic print of tropical colors paired with both navy and black. It will match any RR Swim piece perfectly. It features a v-neck and is knee length with flirty side slits. I see this as a “go to” beach style
  • Our bestselling tankini, the Bali Tankini, just launched in Ruby Red (in addition to the existing Garden print and Navy Polka Dot). Both feature a built-in metal necklace detail; the garden and red both have a gold necklace and the navy dot has a silver necklace. And, like all our swimsuits, this suit is UPF protective and chlorine resistant. Pair this top with our Swim Skirt or my personal favorites, the Ruched Bottoms.
  • Our Beach Pants made of breezy cotton gauze will soon be your new favorite summer pant. Pull them on over a swimsuit or pair them with a tankini top on the patio. They’ll look cool and you’ll feel cool. (Wash in cold, lay flat to dry. Cotton gauze will shrink if not cared for properly.)

Hang Out and Lounge About!

What could be a better than a day to just hang out and lounge about? How about a new few new pieces of the comfiest and coziest “lay on the couch for a movie” kind of clothes? Two of the newest pieces in the 2019 Spring collection are the Lounge About Tunic and the Hang Out Hoodie.

Lounge About Tunic

In a soft shade of pink, the Lounge About Tunic has a deep v-neckline with a unique but pretty cutout detail. It’s super lux to lounge in; feel free to push up the long dolman sleeves for a soft and casual look. This tunic has a losse fit that tapers slightly at the hem, and it’s a versatile length that can be worn longer or shorter. The fabric is a super soft t-shirt fabric with a touch of stretch.

To wear the Lounge About Tunic and stay comfy, pair them with your favorite Ankle Leggings, or maybe a pair with a little bit of sizzle like the Lace-Up Leggings (still comfortable but kicked up a notch!). Or, for a trip outside and off the couch, pair this tunic with our Denim Leggings (either black or dark blue will do) and you can even try wearing the tunic backwards for a completely different look.

Hangout Hoodie

Hey, if you’re not lounging about, maybe it’s time to just hang out? You can do that in the new color for the Hang Out Hoodie – a pretty navy fleck. This hoodie came out last year in a black pattern that sold out in weeks. Let’s hope we had a bit more of a stock up this time! Who knew it would be so popular?

One way that this new Hangout Hoodie is different is that in addition to a great long length for extra coverage, it also has thumbholes at the wrist. The seams are slimming and you’ll love the side pockets. Think style and comfort all in a sport hoodie that you’ll wear ALL THE TIME.

Here are a couple ways to style the Hang Out Hoodie:

  • Toss it on over your workout gear as you’re heading to the gym
  • Wear it over a tee with your jeans for a classically casual look
  • Pair it with black leggings or white capris with the black Dual Tank or white Lace Extender (This is my favorite way to wear the Hang Out Hoodie)

These two loungy items weren’t the only things in the 2019 Spring collection. Check out all the new items in the 2019 Spring Capsule in this post.

2019- New Year, New YOU

Whether it is the Paleo, Keto or WHOLE30, detox and diet combinations are in full force for us all to find the right combination of better health in 2019.  Are you doing a new health plan this year?  If so, which one? Please share what you like about it, what results you have seen and do you recommend it?  

Or are you vowing to exercise more instead?  Or a combination of new food plan and exercise?  I’m believe a new year, heck evenaa new day, is always a NEW opportunity to do better and be better.  As they say… “you have to take care of yourself, before you can care for anyone properly. Please join me!  Let’s be the best self we can be!  

My friend, Cassi, is doing the Whole 30 program.  She did it last year at the beginning of 2018 and jump started a healthier version of herself in the new year.  She told me it was very hard but she felt so good after 30 days that she is doing it again this month in 2019.  She had clearer skin, healthier hair, less inflammation in her body, and lost inches/weight as well.  Most importantly she gained knowledge on reading labels, shopping organically more, drinking more water, drinking black coffee (she hasn’t had a caramel latte since December 2017) and avoiding all that sugar she didn’t realize she had been consuming!  She made huge changes in less dairy (as it causes inflammation in her body), more vegetables and fruits, less candy/sugar and less bread throughout the year, etc after doing the whole 30.   She swears it is a great way to reset your body, and especially after these rich holidays.

Also- if it’s exercising you want to do more of, our new Spring 2019 Collection has just what you need to help you feel confident and comfortable while at the gym. We added to our entire Activewear collection with two new workout tanks and two additional activewear leggings. I’ve already shared about the magenta-colored Laser Cut Tank and the super special Laser Cut Leggings.

But we also launched this beautiful blue Mesh Tank with matching Sheer Panel Crop Leggings. The tank features fine mesh detailing on the neck and back and it’s body skimming for a nice silhouette. It’s also designed to fit correctly over our Sport Demiette.

The leggings have cooling mesh cutouts strategically placed to slim and elongate your legs. It also has a back zip pocket for your carrying your phone or keys when you’re on your run (or walk or yoga class, or whatever your jive is). Both the leggings and the tank are made with durable fabrics with wicking qualities.

2019- Let’s make it the best year yet!

Work out in the most unique leggings ever!

Ruby Ribbon Activewear line just got better with the launch of these unique Laser Cut Leggings in black.

With laser cutting, garments have clean cuts and sealed fabric edges to prevent fraying. Using laser cutting, Ruby Ribbon’s lead designer accented these leggings with a pattern of different size circles. This detailing adds interest, but also gives a tiny bit of extra ventilation to your workout too.

At your next trip to the gym, feel free to upgrade beyond your basic black legging. (And no one is stopping you from wearing these Laser Cut Leggings somewhere other than the gym. I’m for sure not telling!)

Like all Ruby Ribbon leggings, these feature built-in slimming and smoothing with a tummy-tuck waistband. In a cropped length, this activewear leggings is wicking, movable and durable and includes a hidden waistband pocket where you can tuck your keys for safe keeping.

Wondering what to wear these leggings with? At the gym, they will look great with any one of our three workout tanks. Or, if you’re wearing them for a casual weekend, pair them with the MVP Tunic or the Zip Back Sweatshirt for fashionable lounging.

Laser Cut Top is at the “cutting edge” of fashion

As I continue to debut Ruby Ribbon’s Spring 2019 collection, I’d like to introduce you to the new Laser Cut Top. This tank is a new addition to our Activewear line and it is sure to be on the cutting edge of activewear fashion. (Did you see what I did there?)

With laser cutting, garments have clean cuts and sealed fabric edges to prevent fraying. This new magenta tank top will be a workout staple. It features wicking fabric to keep you cool. The laser cut accents across the tank help make it breathable.

In addition, the tank has a racerback silhousette that matches perfectly with our Sport Demiette (Ruby Ribbon’s unique “sports bra” option.

At your next workout, pair this cute pink tank with black cropped leggings; it will be perfect for high intensity gym sessions or a calming yoga session. This tank launches January 8 in sizes XS to 3XL.

Ruby Ribbon launches new activewear leggings

Ruby Ribbon does leggings, you all know that. But, guess what? Now, Ruby Ribbon does athletic/activewear leggings, yes, for real! We recently launched two new styles of leggings, both part of our Active collection.

All our new Activewear is made from performance fabrics that are wicking, movable and durable. And, they all come in sizes XS to 3XL so we probably have a fit for you.

Colorblock Crop Leggings

Colorblocking is usually strategic – it helps make a figure flattering line and these new active Colorblock Crop Leggings are no exception. They will move with you and elongate your legs at the same time.

They’re a cropped length, so popular for working out and they feature a back zip-pocket that is even large enough for your phone. Of course, these leggings feature out slimming and smoothing technology also.

Be sure to check out the sporty overlock stitching too.

Reversible Sport Crop Leggings

What could be more perfect than a new pair of workout leggings? How about two pair? That’s what you’ll get with these new Reversible Sport Crop Leggings – one side is a fun Desert Rose print and the alternate side is basic black.  Oh, and you can cuff them to have the reverse side peak through – how cute!

They are ready for your workout too, with a hidden waistband pocket. And these leggares are made of two layers of fabric, so they will not have the same stretch as a single-ply legging. If you prefer more compression, get your regular Ruby Ribbon leggings size, but if you want them a bit looser, get one size up.  Approximately 75% of women who try these leggings on choose their current size.
