Fashion Trends


Stuck in the city for the summer? No worries, Ralph Lauren’s S/S 2011 collection will take you on a trip out West with no security checks or line ups. While touching on several of the season’s big trends: white, maxi skirts and lace, this wild west take had a uniquely Ralph Lauren touch. We’d advise against a literal duplication, complete with fringed chocker necklace and suggest instead that the elements be incorporated into a look of your own. A lace prairie skirt is beautiful when worn with a blouse with unexpected sweatshirt details and a suede satchel makes a great carry all over a mini denim skirt. You can buy your favorite Ralph Lauren fashions here. We put together some great fashions – most well under $150.00 which were inspired by Ralph Lauren’s S/S collection.
