NYFW Outfit – Ruti

September 10, 2019

My first outfit of New York Fashion Week was this effortlessly chic look by Ruti, one of my favorite designers.


Ruti Tristan Colorblock Tunic

This is a paid collaboration with Ruti, a designer I’m crazy about!

Ruti Zisser is an American Isreali fashion designer from the San Francisco Bay Area. You might remember this fabulous Ruti outfit that I also wore in this post as well.

The more my sense of style evolves, the more I appreciate the high quality and interesting designs of independent fashion designers, those who have a strong vision and aren’t trying to be all things to the masses.  Ruti has a unique modern style that is sophisticated without ever sacrificing comfort.

Ruti says,

I have three rules for design:

It must be COOL. You don’t need to sacrifice the cool factor to achieve a look that is classic and sophisticated. Our clothes lend a smart and effortless touch to the woman on the go.

It must be FLATTERING. Our clothes are designed to flatter a woman over the age of 35 without making her look like she’s trying too hard.

It must be PRACTICAL. 80% of my collection are clothes that I wear everyday. 20% of my collection is aspirational – it’s for the woman I daydream of being.

Love that viewpoint!

I reached out to Ruti to see if they were interested in a collaboration for New York Fashion Week,  I loved the outfit that I picked out so much that I wore it my first day there!

Ruti Black and White Tristan Colorblock Tunic

This tunic will turn heads with it’s striking black and white colorblock and asymmetric hem.  Cool without trying too hard is how I would describe this piece, along with all of Ruti’s amazing designs.

Ruti Monica Ponti Leggings

The perfect high quality and versatile leggings, the Monica can be worn with tunics, sweaters, dresses, and skirts.  Made of viscose, polyester, and spandex, the fit is comfortable and very flattering.

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is me talking to you, other middle aged women like me who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. We all have own shapes and bodies, parts we’d like to cover and parts we still don’t mind showing off a bit.  This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce.
