Girl Crush: Ruby Aldridge

You know how they always say “A model-off-duty shirt” or “Her style is very model-off-duty“? What does that even mean?

While there is no exact definition of model-off-duty to be found (even on Urban  Dictionary, I checked), a quick Google image search reveals a certain look – skinny jeans, leather jackets, slouchy shirts and lots of black. At first glance, it looks fantastic, and at second glace…it’s nothing remarkable. We definitely dig simple-chic, but I’m going to go off on a limb here and say that the key to model-off-duty style has less to do with style, more to do with models.

Cue Ruby Aldridge, a model that is a super star on the runway and a rock star on the street. Her style is edgy, bold and very well-defined, favoring pieces like fringe jackets, military hats, military jackets, frayed denim, plaid and oversized hats. We love Ruby because even when she’s not on duty, she’s working it in a way that is completely her own.

  1. Whats up this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
