Known for her ladylike style, Ruth Langsford’s latest outfit as the presented Loose Women was no exception.
Bringing a little sunshine to the studio, she added a bold pop of colour to her look with a yellow jumper. Adding a little extra interest to the otherwise plain knit with a soft bow neckline, Ruth let her jumper take centre stage by teaming it with a simple pair of black cigarette trousers and playful leopard print heels.
But there may be a little more to Ruths fashion choice than meets the eye. Chances are Ruth’s ladylike look was inspired by none other than the Duchess of Cambridge. Not only because of the no-fuss styling, but also as her knit is from LK Bennett, one of Kate’s favourite labels.
The Duchess has been a loyal LK Bennett customer for many years, and is often seen wearing their cult court shoes. She was even spotted wearing a pair of heeled black ankle boots by the brand as recently as this week. Always classically elegant but with a fashion forward twist, LK Bennett’s ethos fits perfectly with the Duchess’ signature style. And if it’s good enough for Kate, then it’s good enough for us!
Priced at £150, Ruth’s jumper is certainly an investment purchase, but the super-soft cashmere blend helps justify the price tag. Thanks to it’s lightweight composition, it’s easy to tuck into skirts or trousers, whilst the sunny yellow shade will both brighten up a dreary winter day and see you through spring.
Follow Ruth’s lead by playing it down with low-key pieces, or push the fashion boundaries by wearing your knit with a printed skirt or colour-clash with bold blues or vibrant pinks.
Fans went wild for Ruth’s look – taking to Instagram to show their appreciation.
One user wrote, ‘Beautiful Jumper it suits you’, whilst another was taken with her trews commenting, ‘Love the trousers, exactly what I need on my wardrobe!’
We can’t wait to see what she wears next.

She caught the magazine bug during a stint as Fashion Editor of her university newspaper alongside her English degree, and hasn’t looked back since. As for the fashion bug, that came as part and parcel of growing up in the 90s, but the less said about that the better!
Jess’ average day in the office is spent researching the latest fashion trends, chatting to industry tastemakers and scouring the internet to bring you this season’s must-buy pieces - as well as advice on how to wear them. Weekends are equally fashion-focused, and Jess has been known to visit no less than five Zara stores in a single day in search of the perfect occasion dress.
The only thing that comes close to a buzz of finally tracking down that much-coveted dress is the joy of discovering a new beauty wonder product or hero ingredient. A beauty obsessive, Jess has tried everything from cryotherapy to chemical peels (minus the Samantha in Sex and The City-worthy redness) and interviewed experts including Jo Malone and Trinny Woodall.
