Much has changed about American institution Ralph Lauren since it started out in the 60s - its expansion into womenswear is just one example of how the brand, which began producing ties, has smartly evolved. So for wardrobe elegance, consider Ralph Lauren women’s clothing - it's been worth the wait.
Polo shirts and American flag-print knits aren’t the only pieces that Ralph Lauren gained a rep for throughout the 80s and 90s; the brand also honed in on power-suit dressing for women. Though huge shoulders are no longer the focus, we have office-ready winners in our women’s clothing by Ralph Lauren edit. Pair one of the brand’s smart blazer jackets with tailored trousers, or pick a subtly structured dress and wear it with understated pieces of gold jewellery for a polished finish while you're making a hostile company takeover. But you probably won’t want to save these smart pieces just for work (we understand), so slip on some Ralph Lauren ladies' clothes for your next dinner date or Sunday brunch - a classic shirt always works a treat - and let the compliments roll in.
There are plenty of casual staples available in the collection of women’s clothing by Ralph Lauren, including outerwear that combines style and comfort, and relaxed-fit trousers and tops that are perfect companions for chilled-out days and long weekends. The brand is known for its denim, and its women’s jeans are designed for a flattering fit, whether you’re into figure-framing styles (work it) or something a little looser on the leg. For a smart take on casual dressing, try wearing Ralph Lauren jeans with ankle boots (go heeled for city chic or flat for dashing around) and, if you’re on the go sling a saddle bag over your shoulder as a nod to the brand’s equestrian-inspired styling.
