Lace Capris debut in March

lace trim capri outfitLove your Ruby Ribbon capris? (Yes, we all do – ha!)   How about kicking them up a notch with a lace-trimmed pair?
Yes, it’s the same fabric, but with a 5 1/2 inch lace trim along the hem for a touch of flair. These are your “dress up” capris; you should consider wearing them with a nude heel. The inseam is slightly longer than our standard capris, partially due to the lace trim.
With lace as the theme for your outfit, consider topping these fun capris with a black Empire Lace Tank and our Ponte Blazer.  Or pair them with either the white or demin Tunic Dress for a slightly more casual look.

Perfect pattern for spring

spring is here (3)I’ve enjoyed watching all the ways that women are styling our new Crop Ponte Trouser. The gingham print is an incredible base for many beautiful outfits. These pants are the perfect length and pattern for spring. And, they feature the signature Ruby Ribbon “skinny waistband” too.
croppontetrouser_ginghamblack_front.jpgPair these optic black and white trousers with neutrals if that’s your style. They look great with black or a crisp white. Or, if you love to dress in color, these are the base for red, melon, royal blue, pink, purple and more. These pants are flattering but not meant to be tight. And, they feature a first in our Ruby Ribbon pants – can you say Pockets!

Wear this long button-down so many ways

char spring 2018 denim tunicI couldn’t resist getting one of these crisp button-ups for myself. Our new Shirt Dress is so versatile – belt it, wear it as a long top, try it as a dress, or leave it open as a jacket. I’m betting you’ll be wearing this All. The. Time.
In either a shiny blue denim or a crisp white, you’ll find a ton of ways to style it too. The length screams leggings to me. I already wore the blue with black leggings, but just think of the various options you have either either color. Pair with boots now, but super fun later with sandals too. Available in sizes XS to 3XL, as usual.

More reasons to swing into Spring 2018

Swing Wrap Top.png
Swing into Spring 2018 with the new Ruby Ribbon Swing Wrap Top in a gorgeous shade of orchid. This new top will becoming a bright spot in your closet and perfect for Spring.
It’s a true wrap top with a string tie that can be tied in either back or front. The flutterly (is that a word?) detail on the front hides a muffin top (I’m not saying you have one) or not. Be sure to wear your Ruby Ribbon cami under it if you want a bit less “showing.” This sleeve is specifically designed to both cover and accent your arms.
In sizes 3XL to XS, this top will look great on all body shapes. Pair it with our Split Skirt and boots for work, or toss on any pair of Ruby Ribbon leggings (so many choices), with some statement jewelry and flats and head out on the town in a more casual look.

Who Needs Jewelry?

Our new Necklace Trim Top is definitely an outfit maker and a “must have” for your spring wardrobe. Choose basic black (always a great choice) or an energetic Melon color. This swingy top can be worn neatly tucked into a skirt, or loose and flowing with dress pants.
A brushed metal gold necklace detail attached to a flatter shirring at the neckline means you don’t need to worry about jewelry – it’s more or less built into this tank. It’s dressy but not too fancy to wear with jeans. (Oh, and it’s still machine washable too)
How to wear it?

  • The melon color looks perfect with the Gingham Cropped Trousers and of course will pair well with skirts or pants in either mink brown or black.
  • Get a lean look when you pair the black version with a black Flounce Skirt and black pumps. Or love the look of jeans with the black tank and either the chalk or black Suedette jacket.

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!

Super soft Suedette is a new hit in a jacket

suedettecropjacket_chalk_backWe’ve a loved the prior Suedette pieces from Ruby Ribbon – those super soft leggings in a range of colors and that gorgeous purplish blue tunic and Ruby Ribbon  has done it again with in the latest line with the Cropped Suedette Jacket.
It’s a boutique find with it’s slouchy but still perfect look. It will be high impact in your wardrobe, that’s for sure. It comes in two wardrobe basics, black of course, and a chalk white. All the stylists are smiling over the addition of pockets (it’s the little details folks) and this jacket has pockets too. And its even machine washable.
This jacket is casual enough for jeans right now or over a sundress this summer. Dress it up by pairing it with our Stretch Woven Pants for a put together look. (That’s what I’m showing in the picture on the left)
(Hey, did I forget to tell you we have a brand new khaki color option in our Stretch Woven Pants? Well, now to worry, you can now get these great pants in three colors – black, mink brown and khaki.)

Wanna spend your day in your PJs?

jog pants with demiette photo croppedI’m admitting right now that I spent most yesterday in my PJs. (Sorry, not sorry) I was working around the house and following up with clients from my business and I guess I both got caught up in my activities but also wanted that PJ comfort.
As a seasoned Ruby Ribbon stylist, I know that I should have took one of the favorite aspects of Ruby Ribbon – comfort – and put on a few of my favorite casual pieces.
A great example is our new R&R Pant; I mean even the name says it will be a great lazy weekend piece. They are #fashleisure at their best! Comfort, trendy, functional, super soft and so much more.
Made from a combo of bamboo and cotton, they are so soft you’ll actually never want to take them off. And in sizes in XS to 3XL, there is probably a pair just for you. Wear the waistband as you typically would, or go with today’s trend and turn the waistband rolled out. It also has a functioning drawstring for a snug fit, and pockets!
For the weekend, I suggest pairing them with a loose fitting top and a Ruby Ribbon demiette. If you’re going out the house, they will look great with our Laid Back Top and Hangout Hoodie, with casual shoes, of course.

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.
