What’s Ottoman and what does it have to do with a skirt?

One of the themes of the Ruby Ribbon Winter and Holiday line is a fabric called Ottoman. It was new to me too, so I had to look it up.

ottomanponteskirt_black_frontOttoman is a fabric with a pronounced ribbed or corded effect, often made of silk or a mixture of cotton and other silk like yarns.

Our Ruby Ribbon designer used an Ottoman fabric on several pieces this season, including what I can only describe as a “super cute” skirt. I expect this new skirt to replace a staple skirt in my current wardrobe.

The ottoman fabric is mixed with our signature Ponte in a “moto” look. The ottoman panels are strategically placed on this straight skirt to give a slip hip effect. I say it regular that Ruby Ribbon clothes are designed to be figure flattering and this is just one example.

If you are a skirt wearer like I am, you are going to find some  fun ways to wear this new Ottoman Ponte Skirt. It’s both office appropriate (think Bell Sleeve Top and Ponte Jacket) and weekend approved (worn with our pink Dance Top and a Judi Cardigan maybe).  Use your imagination to really find the ways to stretch the value of this new skirt.
