Shades of Winter
Autumnal tones of charcoal, slate, camel and tobacco and buttery textures of cashmere, suede, shearling and leather inundate Ralph Lauren’s fall 2012 collection, and we could not be any more inspired.
I am absolutely lusting over the Ralph Lauren cashmere poncho above, $598, as one of my fall wardrobe anchor pieces. I just love its versatility and ease of wear. It is effortlessly chic with the leather-patch jodhpurs pictured, and would look equally sophisticated with chocolate suede leggings or just jeans and boots. The elegant camel color teams with black or cinnammon. This piece is perfect for travel. Easy elegance. With an amber necklace or ring, you’re good to go.
Another lust piece is this aviation-inspired Ralph Lauren shearling cape, $2,998. I know, I know, that’s a hefty price tag, but it truly is an investment piece. I love the neck buttoned up or down. Awesome with jodhpurs as shown, or with skin-tight flannel cargos below, $345.
Ralph Lauren offers an alternative to the classic legging in this slim silhouette, with zipper-detail interest, side pockets and a notched ankle. Simple and sexy with a sweater or a bomber jacket and aviator sunglasses.
Thanks, Ralph. Hope to see you under the tree again this year…
We’ve been so very, very good.
