7 Tips to Take your Wardrobe into Fall

Yesterday it was 95 degrees outside and today, about 30 degrees cooler – Fall is definitely in the air!

Tonight, I’m sharing seven tips for transitioning your wardrobe into Fall.

  1. As the temperature dips, layer different lengths of solid colored tank tops under long sleeve shirts or sweaters to elongate your silhouette.
  2. Choose the right Fall fabrics ‚Äď think leather, suede, corduroy, chambray and flannel.
  3. Don’t put your summer dresses away just yet! Wear your warm-weather pieces into fall by pairing them with cozy cardigans, leggings and boots.
  4. Gather some warm weather accessories like scarves or a fun hat – cozy and fashionable.
  5. If you can’t part with your skirts and dresses just yet, then wear them with a pair of dark-colored tights or leggings and a pair of boots for a quick, chic look.
  6. Wear a lacy top under a long-sleeved shirt with a scooped neckline. The lace will peak out, giving you a feminine look while keeping you warm.
  7. Put away your wedges, pumps, sandals, and flip flops, it’s time to start tucking your pants into boots!

Designer shares “Must Have” Wardrobe Colors for Fall 2018

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
  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. Dance Top from Ruby Ribbon
    Dance Top in Mink

    Chocolate Brown — luxury without the calories; warmer alternative to black (at Ruby Ribbon, we often call this color “mink brown”)

  5. 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
  6. Sunny Spicy Yellow —¬†signifies warmth and optimism;¬†mixes well with grey and camel;¬†big color for activewear
  7. Suedette Tunic from Ruby Ribbon
    Suedette Tunic

    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

  8. Vibrant Orange — great pop color for outerwear; pairs well with black and brown; ,ix it with grey and pink for an unexpected twist
  9. 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

Popular Suedette Leggings now in Two New Colors

For the last two Fall seasons, we’ve had our exclusive Suedette Leggings just sell off the shelves. Guess what, they’re back!¬† And for Fall 2018, we added two new colors — Ink and Chocolate.

Suedette is a super soft faux suede fabric with all the same texture and style but machine washable. Once you touch them, you’re hooked.

These two new colors are rich! Ink is a deep blue that will pair well with gray, pearl or a light tan. And you can guess the color of the Chocolate, so scrumptious.

My clients LOVE these Suedettes and I think you will too. Pair with a cozy sweater and boots and you have the perfect Fall outfit.

In August (2018), these are a Hostess Exclusive and will launch to everyone in September.

Gypsy Top times Two

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.

Think “mix and match” with these pieces.

  • Wear them together with white capri leggings¬†and shimmery silver jewelry
  • Pair the tank top with a blazer and a straight black skirt for a pulled-together office look
  • Try the outer layer over the white Lace Extender and denim leggings¬†(either black or blue) for a super casual weekend outfit with flats

Wildflower Top will be a hit for Fall

When I debuted the Fall 2018 Collection to my online style community, one of the big hits was the new Wildflower top. They loved the fresh tiny floral print and the tunic style.

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:

  1. 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?)
  2. 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
  3. I can see it also with Denim Leggings and a leather jacket as a fall casual style, of course with boots

New Lace Bodysuit perfect over a Ruby Ribbon Cami

Too racy for you? Check out our new Lace Bodysuit in black, just one of several new items in our Fall 2018 collection.

In floral stretch lace, this new top will look great over a cami or even a demiette; wear it over black for a traditional look or choose an accent color for under the lace.

It features 3/4 length sleeves and a v-neckline with a ruched detail. The bodysuit runs a little small, so you want to size up.

Here are some ideas I have for wearing it:

  • For an edgy vibe, I can see this easily with skinny jeans and heels. Is that your style?
  • But, I can also picture it with the black or navy Flounce Skirt, paired with our Ponte Jacket.

Two ways, totally different. How would you rock this?

Rock out with Stevie Nicks in our new Fall Leggings

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

Fan Favorites this Fall

In our last Ruby Ribbon call, they shared the list of Fall items that you all are loving.¬† Here’s what are the fan favorites (ie top sellers) right now.

  • Suedette Leggings –¬† a limited edition item only available in September, but gorgeous and soft – choose from 5 colors (you still have a few days to get them)
  • Ponte Blazer — aka a “boyfriend” blazer with pockets and a style all it’s own
  • Chiffon Poncho — I should check but I think I’ve sold more than a dozen of these myself. So flattering on many figures
  • Effortless Top — My sample in the rose color gets tried on by everyone. I love it over the white Lace Extender and the tiger print is very cute too
  • Denim Leggings — hey, not new for Fall, but we are all ready to put our summer clothes away I think. They are great for tailgating, date night, you get the idea
  • Flip Skirt — what’s not to love about a reversible skirt that gives you two complete looks with one piece

(I’m surprised the new Stretch Woven Pants didn’t make this list, just saying)
