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

What’s your preferred shade of neutral?

These pants features a slim straight leg, our patented “skinny band at the waist, and an invisible side zipper. They are structured and perfect for any occasion, but stretch in two directions to move with you all day. Great with flats or heels!

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.)

My best travel jacket

I just returned from a fun vacation to the Caribbean and while there I realized one thing about the Ruby Ribbon Ponte Jacket. I value it more when I travel than when I don’t?  Not sure why.
But when I’m traveling, I nearly always bring it. It went to Finland with me two summers ago, and is almost always in my laptop bag on a business trip.
brown ponte jacketHere’s why:

  • It packs so easily — no chance of getting wrinkled no matter where you stash it
  • It goes with any outfit. Mine is black so that helps (but you can also get it in mink brown), and the fabric is just dressy enough to wear with a skirt or nice pants, but it’s also perfect casually with jeans.
  • It’s stretchy and comfy but still professional looking when you need it
  • And the detailing on the back just makes it fit so well

Sorry, enough raving, but it’s just a great versatile jacket that I probably haven’t told you enough about.

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.

Your "go to" top this season

Our Bell Sleeve Top is sure to be a hit with many women this season with its wrap silhouette and ruching on the sides. It’s flattering and comfortable and made to go with so many outfits.  And the bell sleeves, so comfy.
This top comes in black, but it also comes in this fun “ruby camo” pattern too. Ruby camo is shades of wine and black.
Pair the black with well, black, and then add in some color for the fun of it —  red, teal, blue, soft yellow, whatever is your “thing.”  It’s also shown below with our new Printed Leggings in three patterns to chose from.
Pair the “camo” with black pants or skirts, and then add one of our favorite Ruby Ribbon jackets to bring it up to an even more professional level. You are going to find so many ways to wear this print.

Hello Saturday! Hello New Colors!

When you find something you love (like Saturday or a pair of pants that fit so great), sometimes you want them in a variety.
Well, for Saturday, I can’t really help you get that feeling other days (OK, maybe I can? Redesign your life with a flexible and fun fashion career?  But I digress).
When I’m sharing Ruby Ribbon with women out there, I often get requests for more colors in some of our best basic items. So, with Fall, I have more colors in several of our most-loved pieces!  The key colors for our wardrobe basics are now:  Black (everyone’s favorite), Mink Brown and Sapphire Blue (so gorgeous).
We now offer these fashion favorites in this range of colors:

  • Flare Leg Ponte Pants in Black, Mink and Sapphire — my personal favorite “work pant” that flatters many body types
  • Ponte leggings in Black, Mink and Sapphire — slimming and fashionable leggings in a sturdy fabric
  • Slim Leg Ponte Pants in Black, Mink and Sapphire — a customer favorite
  • Wrap Jacket in Black, Mink and Sapphire — a chic update to a classic blazer, and features a Ponte belt too

So happy to have wardrobe basics in new colors!
