The dress, which didn’t not feature any embellishments, had a high neckline and three quarter length sleeves.
Fitted at the waist, it came out slightly on the skirt, finishing at the Ruth’s knee.
Ruth wore simple jewellery with the dress, sticking to a chunky black bracelet and no necklace. She completed the look with a pair of nude court shoes.
Twitter approved of her outfit, with one person tweeting: “Looking sexy this morning Ruth”.
Twitter was divided over the outfit, taking to the social media site to discuss the outfit – and it was all down to her husband Eamonn Holmes’ fashionable opinion.
Ruth, 56, posted a video on Twitter of her outfit saying her husband had “laughed” at her.
She said: “My outfit is causing a bit of a divide between me and my husband today. These I would call culottes and I quite like them.
“He walked in, laughed and asked me what I had on – said I looked like a pirate.
“The culottes are from Topshop and the top is from Topshop. Let me know what you think.”
Ruth wore a stylish pink top from Warehouse, in homage to Valentine’s Day, with smart black trousers from Hall Huber and heels from ASOS.
Sharing a video of her outfit, Ruth wrote: “Yesterday we had a very mixed response to my culottes – Eamonn did not like them, while half of you loved them. I loved them.”
She captioned the video: “After #culottesgate yesterday what does @eamonnholmes think of my Valentine’s Day outfit on @thismorning today?!”
“What do you think of today?” she asked her husband, “Today we are doing pink fashion because it’s Valentine’s Day.”
Eamonn was not keen to give his wife any input on her fashion choices.
“Well obviously I’m not allowed an opinion,” he said, “and you’ve just warned me it’s Valentine’s Day.”
