I’ve written about my friend Sunil before, and he’s back at his blogging (actually, he never quit) and now he’s sharing the “must have colors for Fall 2018.” Sunil is a fashion designer and write a fashion blog called “Sunil Styles.”
Of course you should read the article yourself, where he highlights the colors, shows examples of the fashions he’s seeing and shares tips on how to wear them this season. But I’m sharing his color selections here as a quick read for you, and I’ve included my takeaways from his fashion advice.
“Color is the most effective way to update your look and also make you feel ready to take on the season.” — Sunil
Power Red — all about individuality and standing out; strong color for accessories; one of the newest ways to wear it is to mix it with pink
Silver Grey — a very refined silver tint; great chic color for head to toe dressing; mix it with camel or orange for an edgier look
Pretty Pink — pairs well with both grey and brown; strong color for evening and surprisingly outer wear; it is perfectly okay to wear head to toe pink.
Chocolate Brown — luxury without the calories; warmer alternative to black (at Ruby Ribbon, we often call this color “mink brown”)
Winter White — looks great mixed with black and brown; white boots are a big trend this season; good color to transition you from Summer to Fall when mixed with denim
Sunny Spicy Yellow — signifies warmth and optimism; mixes well with grey and camel; big color for activewear
Bright Blue — great accent color; universally flattering; mix it with grey and black for a more sophisticated urban feel or contrast it with pink or orange for that wow factor
Vibrant Orange — great pop color for outerwear; pairs well with black and brown; ,ix it with grey and pink for an unexpected twist
Not so Basic Black — does not need to be basic and boring; black is all about texture from matte to gloss from smooth to quilted and from flat to pile; wear head to toe black or mix and contrast the textures for a modern take
This free-spirited Gypsy Top in a beautiful dusty blue is really two tops in one for amazing versatility.
Just a snap- loop connects these two tops, meaning it will be so easy for you to wear them separately or as a set. The top layer is a loose, flowy cropped cut with bracelet-length sleeves. It’s made of a poly-silk.
The inner layer is a long v-neck tank top with a beautiful chantilly lace edge. It’s stretchy and a very versatile piece. This boho combo comes in sizes XS to 3XL.
This sleeveless top features a mandarin collar with lace detailing in the front. The fabric has stretch, adding comfort and making it easier to get on and off too. It’s available in a range of sizes from extra small to 3XL.
Here’s how I’ll be wearing this top:
I love skorts, and the Wildflower Top will be perfect with my black skort on a summer weekend with black sandals and maybe a straw hat (maybe?)
Paired with black Flare Leg Pants for an easy work outfit this fall – breeze and simple to wear with dressier black flats and a silver bracelet
I can see it also with Denim Leggings and a leather jacket as a fall casual style, of course with boots
Launching yesterday, the Ruby Ribbon Fall 2018 Collection (including our coolest leggings yet) is sure to have you looking on-trend and casual.
Sit back and let’s spend a few posts talking about our newest items.
It’s a rockin’ first look with our new Stevie Leggings, which were inspired by Stevie Nicks (think “Stop Draggin’ my Heart Around”).
The six functional snaps running down the legs are hip and fun and you can have a great time styling with them. Leave a few snaps open, for a unique “just you” look.
These leggings fit like our Ankle Leggings and of course, feature our “skinny band” at the waist. We’re know for always having on-trend and different styles in our leggings and these don’t disappoint. We offer these in XS to 3XL, as always.
Here are a few styling tips for these leggings:
Pay homage to Stevie N by pairing them with one of her tees and our Ponte Blazer
Try them with a flowy tunic like our Layered Tunic in spruce green or black
Add boots and a sweater (try our Lux Tunic) this fall as the temps change
