Locals Love It: The Fashion of Ruston

Written by Tori Ward, Marketing/PR Assistant

Locals always tend to know the best places to eat, shop, explore, and have fun in a town. They know the ins and outs of the area and prove to be ideal advice-givers for visitors. For this reason, we recently asked Ruston locals about their favorite restaurants, shops, attractions, etc. in town that go above and beyond to make an experience truly exceptional. 

One of the places that locals can't seem to get enough of is The Fashion of RustonLocated in historic downtown, The Fashion of Ruston is a quaint and elegant boutique with a trendy edge that has provided current fashions to women in Ruston for over 60 years.

With upbeat music and tons of natural light, the store has an airy feel that makes looking around and shopping an enjoyable experience. The Fashion even provides a few tables and chairs in their gorgeous carriageway for those customers who want to sit and relax on a pretty day.
