I discovered fashion designer Ripley Rader a few years ago after noticing a blogger wearing one of her gorgeous jumpsuits at a fashion event in LA. I have watched Ripley grow since then and she has expanded her jumpsuit line to include a fabulous ready-to-wear line, all designed and made in Los Angeles! Most of her jumpsuits retail for $200 and her other pieces are well priced too. She's a favorite in Hollywood with celebrity fans including Gigi Hadid, Amy Schumer, Kate Upton and Felicity Huffman. It's no surprise that LA's famed Fred Segal coined Ripley "THE Jumpsuit Designer!"
Ripley Rader's ready-to-wear collections are classic, feminine, practical and are meant to express individuality through different silhouettes that accentuate all body types. Her clothing is incredibly comfortable, wrinkle free and perfect for travel!
Janet Gunn and I visited Ripley Rader's cool LA showroom a few weeks ago for our Glow & Grateful Facebook Live Segment where we chatted about her inspiration behind the line and the versatility of her pieces. Watch below to learn more about the brand and to get a peek at the current collection. Ripley will show us how to wear, tailor and accessorize the perfect jumpsuit and show us some of the most popular pieces from her ready-to-wear-line.
From Ripley's Ready to Wear collection, I am obsessed with the crop top and high waisted pants and own them in BOTH in black and in off-white. I recently wore the outfit below to a luncheon in Beverly Hills--a trendy and fresh alternative to wearing a dress! Vertical circle necklace on wire is by EncircleNYC.
For a more casual vibe, I love Ripley's Feather Print Jumpsuit. It's super chic and comfy--the perfect piece to pack for beach vacation travel. I like to wear this jumpsuit super long so it just about drags on the floor when paired with flats.

Many of Ripley's designs easily transition from day to night. Wear them with a wedge and oversized bag during the day, and add a pair of sexy heels, smokey eye and statement jewelry for a night out on the town. Her styles come in a variety of solids and prints. Whatever your style or body type, she has you covered!
