Meadow Blouse is flowy and feminine

In a flowery print of burgundy and a deep cream color with navy accents, this Meadow Blouse is a flowy and feminine tunic. It will look great tucked in like you often wear a blouse, or more breezy as a tunic with leggings or a skirt. The hem is even high/low, meaning it’s longer in the back.

It’s a fun new piece in the 2019 Spring Collection that is different from what Ruby Ribbon has brought to us in the past. It features a ruffle collar with a v-neckline and a cute tie at the neckline. The long sleeves can easily easily be pushed up, especially because they have a rule elastic at the wrist.

Made of poly crepe, this top also will be new-looking for a long period of time. It also dries easily and resists wrinkles.

Wondering how to style the Meadow Blouse?

  • For a traditional ‚Äúpoet‚ÄĚ look, pair it with our Denim Leggings in either black or dark denim
  • Live a little with your own style ‚Äď try pairing it with the eggplant colored Velvet Leggings
  • Super cute with Slim Leg Pants or Flare Leg Pants in sapphire

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‚Äôve 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! ¬†

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.

Vegan Leggings – “You are the One that I Want”

“I got chills, they’re multiplying
And I’m losing control
‘Cause the power, you’re supplying
It’s electrifying”

This iconic scene from the movie Grease from back in 1978 is what I think of when I see these awesome new Vegan Leggings in the Fall 2018 capsule from Ruby Ribbon.

Just like all our leggings, these will shape your tummy and elongate your legs. These come in sable brown and will be the topic of conversation at all your your social gatherings!

No matter what you’re wearing, the Vegan leather will instantly dress up any outfit. Be confident in the fit since these fit just like our popular Ankle Leggings. These leggings are so soft on the inside and have a great “feel” on the outside too.

Here are some styling ideas for the Vegan Leggings

  • Look even more like Sandy from Grease by topping them with a black Lace Extender and the new Bomber Jacket
  • Go for a casually elegant look by pairing them with the layered Gypsy Top in dusty blue
  • ¬†Take them out for a weekend day trip with the crisp white Shirt Dress

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.

Classic Bomber Jacket styling delivers Fall fashion vibe

Check the dictionary and you’ll learn that a Bomber Jacket¬†a¬†short¬†jacket¬†ending at¬†the¬†waist¬†with¬†an elastic waistband,¬†usually¬†having¬†a¬†zip¬†front¬†and¬†cuffed¬†sleeves.¬† That’s a great description of the new Diamond Bomber Jacket now offered from Ruby Ribbon with the 2018 Fall Capsule.

The perfect jacket for Fall, I think you’ll find yourself reaching for this often. It’s made from a¬†diamond double-knit jacquard fabric — think texture! It’s self-lined and features a ribbed detailed at the neckline and on the cuffs.

The bomber jacket may have started its life as a highly-functional clothing during the war but now it’s as fashionable as they come.

Here a few ideas on how to wear it:

  • Slightly obvious, but tuck your hands into the front pockets of your Bomber as you pair it with jeans, a t-shirt and sneakers for a classic look
  • Think #fashleisure by popping your Bomber Jacket (naturally over-sized) over athletic-inspired leggings and long tunic
  • Transform a little black dress with the boxy look of a Bomber Jacket for an unexpected twist
  • Go “all black” with black pants (or maybe our Ottoman Ponte Leggings), a black shirt and a black Diamond Bomber. Accent with metallics and you’ll just exude “cool”

Who doesn’t love a comfy and super soft sweatshirt?

Our newest #fashleisure piece for 2018 Fall is the Flipside Tunic, a soft and cozy sweatshirt that truly takes the idea of a sweatshirt and kicks it up a notch.

What makes this tunic an even more valuable addition to your close is that it can be worn two ways:

  1. The “front side” features a v-neck with a band across the back to help hold the neckline in place
  2. The “back side” has a beautiful drape neck that would look awesome reversed as the front neckline

As I said, this heather gray tunic is super soft, and that’s due to the fabric it’s made of, which is a bamboo viscose and cotton blend. You really need to experience and touch it.

I’d suggest wearing this tunic with a pair of patterned leggings for a super casual look, or try the Fast Track Leggings for a sleek and stylist outfit.

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

I’ve always got black leggings (always)

Black leggings are what everyone wants, right?¬† They are right at the intersection of fashion and comfort. They are everywhere, with varying lengths and unique details and guess what, at Ruby Ribbon, we’ve got them all.¬† All the black leggings, all the time.

Our black leggings go the extra mile for you. They feature the signature Ruby Ribbon “skinny band” at the waist, giving you just a little shaping on your tummy. And they are high quality and will last so long (no fading).

And what a selection. Our options go beyond just ankle or capri?  We have details, lots and lots of details. Check out the Criss Cross Capris, my favorite Jacquard Leggings, the Skirted Leggings or even the black Denim Leggings.  So. Many. Options. (Which will you choose?)

Summer is for Capris!

Here are the two latest styles we’ve added to our capri mix.

  • Fast Track Capri — a bright desert ‚ÄúCamo‚ÄĚ print adds color to your work-out‚Ķeven if that workout involves sipping iced tea on the patio. A slimming black stripe down the side flatters, while these capris coordinate with a lot of tops. Pair with our Summer brights: Cobalt (or Black) Dual Tank, Charged Pink or Olive Tiered Crochet Extenders. They would also be so cute with the Nothing But Net Tunic and flip-flops.
  • Dual Track Capri ‚Äď Fitted, sporty, trend-right, comfortable, these capris are just the right amount of sporty to wear to the coffee shop while also making you the star of your walking group. Perfect witht the Laid Back Tank, just add a Talented Tunic for cooler days.

Get the fast track to fashion in my online Fashion Studio that is totally free to join! These capris are just pieces in a trendy Summer 2018 Collection.
