Winter Fashion 2009: Ralph Lauren (American Holiday)

It's winter time for Ralph Lauren. He's got two different winter collections this season and this one is "American Holiday," which takes on a "Ski Chic" theme. First, as always, some promotions.





I love this ad. I like the sleekness of the skirt contrasted with the texture of the sweater. That sweater is gorgeous, but I didn't see it anywhere on the Ralph Lauren website. Boo.















Now let's dig in.



Hyley Plaid Crest Shirt






Millbrook Plaid Western Shirt





Once again, plaid is on fire. This time it's in cooler winter colors.


Hand-Knit Lambswool Turtleneck







Chic, modern take on a traditional pattern.


Wool Intarsia Ski Sweater





This is so fun and over-the-top, I can't help but love it.


Wool Intarsia Reindeer Hat




Sun Valley Knit Cap




Slim Custom-Fit Cotton Plaid





More plaid. Lumberjacks everywhere rejoice.


Wool-Blend Mockneck Sweater




Hand-Knit Wool Toggle Sweater





I adore the rich colors on this.


Quilted Down Vest






Whale Wool Hat




Knit Reindeer Cardigan



The slight-ruffle collar gives this cardigan a certain sweetness. Perfect for a little girl.


Hand-Knit Snowflake Sweater




Cotton Fair Isle Sweater






Cable and Tartan Party Dress




Knit Snowflake Dress



These are so cute!


Ruffled Snowflake Mittens




Reindeer-and-Snowflake Scarf




Blake Cotton Twill Plaid




Suede Patch Flannel Workshirt



Plaid, plaid, everywhere!


Patchwork Sweater



The patterns in this sweater work well together, even if they are completely different.


Cotton Reindeer Sweater




Corduroy Princeton Sport Coat

So cute.


Disclaimer: I'm still reeling from all the turkey I've consumed over the last few days (not to mention bogged down in preparations for finals), so I'm feeling a bit uninspired. I'll let you create your own commentary. Here are a few templates to get you started:
