What is Flamestitch?

A flamestitch pattern in the shades of summer was introduced in two different styles of tops with the Ruby Ribbon  2018 collection. Flamestitch is a classic fashion knitwear pattern.

The Flamestitch Tunic is a swim cover-up with a life beyond the pool. This drawstring-waisted topper covers your arms, shows off your waist, while also keeping you cool! Wear it off the beach took with a Flounce Skirt or Denim Leggings.

And, the Off-the Shoulder Flamestitch is the season’s hottest silhouette! A generously-sized tunic with side vents, this top will show off your shoulders while covering your arms! Wear belted or loose, this will be both a fun pool cover-up or patio-party must-have! (This is an easy piece to put in your bag, to give your office look a festive update for a last minute dinner date.) I would pair it with white Capris for a casual look or belted with Slim Leg Ponte Pants for the office.

Be a little laid back

laid back tankMy recent trunk show clients are just loving the Laid Back Top from the Spring 2018 Collection.
It’s casual and fun and so versatile, it’s a weekend or a summer day in a tank top. Be sure to try wearing it frontwards or backwards for a totally different look. Check out the criss cross detail in the back! Of course, pair it over a Ruby Ribbon cami in a neutral like white or black, or a pop of color under it, maybe red?
It will be a “go-to” with shorts, but try it with jeans and our Ponte Blazer. And of course, it’s a given that you’ll wear it with the Hangout Hoodie… To me, it speaks casual, but if you wanna dress it up, show me!

Yes, we now have a sweatshirt

I say we now have a Ruby Ribbon sweatshirt, but really, it’s not your average sweatshirt.
We’ve definitely kicked it up a notch with this version. The Ruby Ribbon version features a tulip hem in front and a romantic criss-cross lacing treatment on the back. (But feel free to try wearing it backwards too.)
Soft, cozy, pink and comfy – just what you want in a sweatshirts. It comes in our usal sizes of 3XL to XS, but you may want to size up if you want a roomy fit.
Pair it with our denim leggings and flats, or maybe try it with the Printed Leggings in either snow leopard or python. (My clients have been loving it with the python print!). You’ll fall in love….fast!

Feels like a dream

Ruby Ribbon Dream Cami
Do you sleep in a bra? 
Since I’ve been a Ruby Ribbon stylist, I’ve learned that many women do. That’s why we’re introducing our Dream Cami, so comfortable that you may want to sleep in it. No bra needed!
This cami features a lace V-neck and hem that can be tucked in, or not? It has the same shaping and smoothing that you’ve come to over in our camis. Depending upon your bust size, you can choose to wear it with or without a bra, when you wear it during the day.
I’ve seen some women even wear it as a top — it’s just a dream!  We offer it in black, white and pale, and in bra sizes 32-40.

Let's Hang Out

hangouthoodie_blackfleck_frontI’m not sure I would have expected a hoodie from Ruby Ribbon, but our new Hang Out Hoodie is the perfect way for us to bring casual to your wardrobe.
In sizes XS to 3XL, it’s the perfect length to wear with any of your Ruby Ribbon leggings, and I know that this is important to me. I’ve looked for exactly this length in a more casual top with long sleeves and I’m certain that I’ll wear this new hoodie ALL THE TIME.
Like many of your Ruby Ribbon pieces, the seams are strategically placed to add a slimming silhouette and it even has some handy pockets. Wear it for a workout or just wear it on a lazy and relaxing day.
