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

Now that the holiday season has officially started, why not kick it off with some winter fashions? The good folks over at Vineyard Vines are ready to indulge us. Just take a look at some of their promotional materials...

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:
