What’s boho?

“BoHo,” an abbreviation of Bohemian Homeless, is a style of fashion drawing on bohemian and hippie influences. This style comes and goes but dates back to the mid 19th century. It was very popular in the 60’s.

The Ruby Ribbon Boho Tunic is representative of the boho chic fashion movement with a flowing fit and a loose sleeve in pleated chiffon. It’s striking in an on-trend eggplant color.

A cornerstone of Boho is comfort with flared shapes and a  variety of colors and patterns. Romantic touches, like flower patterns and lace, are often included.

Tips for wearing our Boho Tunic

  • Pair with leggings and layer on a long vest and silver jewelry
  • Wear with a skirt and add chunky jewelry
  • Try a bohemian gaucho look with the Split Skirt paired with the Boho Tunic, maybe even add a braid?

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.

This could not be more on trend – our Choker Plunge Top

Look anywhere right now and you’ll see that Ruby Ribbon’s design team is in tune with the trends. Not only are we debuting a Choker Plunge Top in two color options, but many other lines also are offering them.
Ours is light and soft and gathered at the shoulder. In a Deep Sea and a Wine tone, these tops will be perfect for many events you’re attending this season. With a bracelet-length sleeve, you’ll be able to show off your favorite bling, and there’s really no need for any other jewelry.
This top is a longer length that can be easily tucked in or worn out. Pair with skirts, our Palazzo Pants, or the ponte pants we’re known for. Either of these colors will be perfect with both black and mink brown.

Once a fashionista, always a fashionista

20170810_211110096_iOSThis week I spent the night at my Mom’s house, and my sister was there too. For fun, she had us dig out all our old Barbie items, including the camper and the posh house and the dream boat.  We also found a stash of Barbie’s clothes.
At our house, Barbie didn’t have just any clothes, she had high fashion items, mostly homemade. (Many of her items were uniquely fashioned out of children’s socks, but that’s another story.)
She also had a wardrobe made by Mom, and I’m guessing many were without a pattern. She was the prima fashion designer in our family. There were even handbags and boots!
20170810_172948870_iOS.jpgI’m attaching a few pictures that I took to save the memories. My sister took some of the clothes herself. Just check out the detail and the pattern and the love that went into these fashions!
I’ll note that Mom remains my biggest supporter and she also loves Ruby Ribbon (and has the closet to prove it!).

Nothin' But Net!

net dress on Michelle.jpgSo, maybe you are usually used to hearing “Nothin’ but net” as a basketball term but we are reinventing it at Ruby Ribbon with our newest tunic – the Nothin’ But Net Tunic.
With mesh detailing on the front and back and removable slip, this ultra-chic tunic is a crowd-pleaser. It can be worn over leggings (white, black, patterned) as a tunic or on it’s own as a sporty dress. It will also be amazing as a swimsuit cover-up without the slip.
Oh, and hey, this limited-edition tunic is going fast. We carry sizes from XS to 3XL, but XS is already sold out.

A trio of flounce

Flounce Skirt montageAvailable in a trio of colors (black, mink or sapphire), our new Ruby Ribbon Flounce Skirt will quickly become one of your wardrobe essentials.
It features a built-in slip to smooth your shape, but that slip won’t ride up because of the signature Ruby Ribbon gripper edge.
In an A-line silhouette with a flounce detail in the back, this slip will pair well with a fitted top or maybe the Ruffle Top tucked in or the Kinomo Top in black.  For those that work in an office, add one of the Ruby Ribbon jackets for a professional look.
This new skirt is definitely fun, flirty and fabulous!
