Comfortable, slimming, smoothing…what’s not to love? Great textures and colors? Even better! While helping me decide between a grey or camel cashmere cardigan at the Cashmere Sale in Burlingame, Susan noticed I was wearing a pair of denim leggings. Susan, a Stylist for the clothing line Ruby Ribbon and I got to talking about my love of leggings and my musings on how to style them with panache here on AskSuzanneBell.com. As we continued to bond over a shared love of cashmere and leggings, Susan asked if I would be willing to try out the Ruby Ribbon Suedette Legging in exchange for my thoughts. After reporting back to her that I was in complete legging bliss, Susan suggested we meet up for coffee and select a few styles that you all might enjoy hearing about, to review here on AskSuzanneBell.com. Being The Fall Legging Edit and Real Women Around the Globe Rock Their Leather Bottoms, are ranked top in my most popular posts – I know many of you love this must-have classic as much as I do. I invite you to cozy up and read on for details, how I styled my favorite pieces, an all new live wrap tutorial, deets on Ruby Ribbon’s November promotion and how grab your favorite pieces without ever leaving the couch via the AskSuzanneBell Virtual Trunk Show!
Note: Today’s pieces were kindly gifted to me by Ruby Ribbon, to share here on the blog. As always, I only share pieces I love, wear myself and would recommend to a friend. All opinions are my own.
Have you heard of Ruby Ribbon?
Ruby Ribbon is known for their leggings. Today I’ve styled up the Suedette leggings and the new Ottoman leggings. So soft and comfortable, these leggings have a 5″ tummy panel which keeps them up, and smooths out the tummy area. Fabulous! I prefer to keep my crotch and butt covered while wearing leggings and that is where the Lace Extender comes into play. Since receiving this piece, I grab it everytime I’m wearing leggings – it’s the perfect butt cover. I chose the Bell Sleeve Wrap Top to layer over the Lace Extender and under the Lux Shawl/Wrap for one of today’s looks. I have found that all of today’s pieces can be mixed and matched over and over again – in fact the Lux Shawl can be worn 4 ways, the Wide Stretch Belt, two. Excited about the options for the shawl ( I call it a wrap), I created a video to show you how I wear and tie it down below!
In addition to incredible leggings, Ruby Ribbon is known for their Camis (wireless support), and Shapewear that not only smooths, but is comfortable. You won’t want to miss out reading about the Demiette which offers the comfort of a sports Bra, the appeal of a bralette along with a few other shape wear piece you need to know about, particularly with the Holiday Season right around the corner! I will be sharing my reviews on Ruby Ribbon shapewear this coming Friday evening here on AskSuzanneBell.com. so I hope to see you back then!
Today’s featured pieces ran true to size for me, with the exception of the Lace Extender which I sized down from my regular size small to an XS. The Bell Sleeve Wrap Top ran a bit small, so I did size up to a medium.
How I Wore It:
Since receiving my Ruby Ribbon leggings, it’s all I want to wear! Not only chic, they are so comfortable. I’ve paired them with tall boots and booties – dressed them up and down and all around town. Below are two looks that began with the Suedette legging and the Ponte Ottoman legging as my base. In both photos I am wearing the Lace Extender – I love not having to worry about my crotch area showing!
