She’s back and this 2018 season she is even more exciting! Carla Ruiz is a Spanish dress and occasionwear designer that we launched here last year to rave reviews. Our customers went crazy for the fashionable dresses that were still formal enough to take you to posh events but don’t make you feel or look frumpy.

Carla Ruiz is all about wearability but at no sacrifice to style.  And you don’t even have to sacrifice your bank balance. Prices are surprisingly competitive with dresses from £195 and dresses with jackets from £275.

Carla Ruiz – for mums who don’t do mumsie

Many women are loving the shorter dress look with neat jackets. Carla Ruiz is all about adding flair to her fashion. You’ll see that many of the jackets and dresses have peplum detail. This not only looks very on-trend but is also very flattering. The peplum nips you in neatly at the waistline and also covers your tummy. Other styles have beautiful button or lace detailing so you have lots of interest. And if you split the dress and jacket up after your big day, you have two very wearable seperates. These peplum jackets look fab with skinny jeans for a more smart/casual look. The dresses on their own are perfect for lunch dates.

Carla Ruiz – dress to impress

With more women wanting a statement dress rather than always opting for a dress and jacket, Carla Ruiz is the answer to our fashion prayers. The 2018 collection includes some gorgeous standalone occasion wear dresses ideal for wedding guests and Royal Ascot. Some feature the longer calf length aka Victoria Beckham. These not only look fab but also help if you don’t want to show too much leg. Just make sure you team them with killer heels or the length can look a bit awkward.

A real hit are also the peplum style dresses with long sleeves. As I mentioned earlier, the peplum shaping is very kind to your waistline. The longer length at the back also helps disguise your bottom and make your back look longer and slimmer. Much easier than going on a diet or a stretching rack!

So whatever event may be in your social calendar this spring/summer, buddy up with Carla Ruiz and trust me, she won’t let you down!
