Meet Ruthie. Few fun facts about my friend: She is a civil engineer here in Fort Collins (no, she can not fix your parking tickets). We like to joke that she is a land baroness — she owns quite a few rentals in town. She’s a mom to her son and three dogs. For fun, she adores running at 5 am.
The first time we had a girls’ night out, I saw Ruthie and instantly said to myself “This chick KNOWS her style!”
It’s fabulous when people have done some soul searching around what they love to wear. And man, Ruthie did just that. Here’s her go-to look: low-waisted boot cut jeans, wide belt, starched white shirt, great shoes, and a vintage coat. Her look screams sophistication and understated panache. Through the years Ruthie has fine-tuned her wardrobe so that she can go in her closet and instantly put on a look she loves effortlessly.
Here’s Why Ruthie’s Look Works
- She is true to herself. She is not a shopper. She is a minimalist. She believes in owning a few pieces that fit her body beautifully and can transition from day to evening. She is a very casual person. She is not about the glam. Having said that, her sense of style is timeless.
- Ruthie understands what looks fabulous on her frame. She belts the jeans below her waist which highlights her hourglass figure. The bootleg jeans elongate her body and make her look taller. The jeans are form-fitting and the looseness of the white shirt works well proportionately. Ruthie admires Diane Keaton and her penchant for menswear. Turns out the shirt did indeed belong to an old boyfriend. Talk about taking an item and styling it your way. This spectacular look is finished off with red clogs and a vintage coat. The pops of color add a cohesive touch.
- This outfit works because Ruthie is comfortable in her skin, she knows she looks great and she owns her choices. She is true to herself and her aesthetic. It’s comfortable, casual, and chic. And that sums up my friend perfectly!
