Ruth Langsford’s wardrobe essentials: 5 key pieces to invest in now

Ruth Langsford always looks flawless on This Morning, and has a reputation for finding many a high-street gem (not to mention the best purse-friendly beauty products). So when we had the opportunity to take a peek inside her wardrobe and have Ruth herself talk us through her all-time favourite buys and some of her key new pieces from her own range, we jumped at the chance.

Here, Ruth gives us the low-down on what she’ll be wearing this summer, and we’ve suggested plenty of options for all budgets so that you can get the look too. If you’ve ever watched her on screen and aspired to a similar classic capsule wardrobe, this is a great place to start…
