White shirt ($80) and pull-on Army pants ($120).
Jump-start your weekends this fall with chic yet easy-to-wear separates, like Moto leggings with vegan leather accents, from A Ruby, founded by Quincy-based Avra Myers. “I thought there was a need for a line of clothing that simplified great style,” says Myers, who is no stranger to womenswear: In her 30-year career, she has cofounded Club Monaco and had stints as copresident of Limited Stores and senior vice president of merchandising at J. Jill. “I wanted to find a way to design clothing with exceptional fit, high-quality fabrics, and the timeless style I love. So I created it.” A Ruby’s staples are produced especially for the fashionable woman-on-the-go: riding pants that transition from day to night, crisp white shirts for work or weekend, soft V-neck tunic sweaters, and the Breton-inspired three-quarter-sleeve T-shirt. In the Fall/Winter 2015 collection, look for the diamond-themed fringed poncho, patch pants, the quilted wrap coat, and Myers’s favorite, the polar fleece cape. The line has a pop-up shop at Michelle Willey in the South End.
