Winter is on its way, but don't let the cold interfere with your style. With weekend ski trips, wood-burning fireplaces, and holiday gatherings on our mind, we're looking to Denim & Supply's classic Americana pieces for a look that's both cozy and effortlessly cool. Pair your favorite denim with a faux-fur vest for a luxurious touch, or stay warm in a shearling-lined moto jacket. It's all about adding a modern twist to tried-and-true favorites — shop all of our picks.
When Team USA walks away from the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, they'll be wearing uniforms comprising American-made pieces from designer Ralph Lauren.
The classic American brand, which has a longstanding relationship with Team USA, revealed the closing-ceremony uniforms on Tuesday morning's episode of the Today show. The uniform is seen here on skier Hannah Kearny and includes a navy peacoat with a bright red stripe, a Nordic-inspired knitted sweater, and hard-wearing black boots — all of which were created on US soil.
In addition to these pieces, Ralph Lauren will sell a collection of villagewear (it's what the athletes will wear when they're not competing) to non-Olympians starting Nov. 15. The games don't start until Feb. 7, but for now, here's a look at what the American team will dress like in Sochi.
Shop clockwise from top left: Madeleine Thompson sweater ($406), Kate Spade New York Avice sunglasses ($138), Ralph Lauren woven leather belt ($64), MSGM floral skirt ($843), Salvatore Ferragamo Tina pumps ($595), Tory Burch Scarab top-handle bag ($595)
Clearly, we're not alone in our pet obsession! It's a dog's life in Ralph Lauren's digital collaboration with the ASPCA — a short film that showcases the label's Fall accessories. The boots and bags are chic, but no extra gets close to the campaign's four-legged actors when it comes to stealing the show. Decked in plaid scarves, yellow raincoats, or nothing at all (in the case of one lucky Griffon who found a home in the arms of an opera-gloved model), the rescue dogs get a stylish makeover for a stroll down the streets of New York and Paris.
The video, with a premiere timed to Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month, is not only adorable, but also for a great cause: from Oct. 15 through Nov. 15, Ralph Lauren will donate 10 percent of the sales of select merchandise featured in The Dog Walk to benefit the ASPCA. Talk about puppy love!
There is perhaps no more iconic American designer than Ralph Lauren. So, we thought there was no better way to celebrate his 74th birthday than by looking back at how his classic sportswear has been winning the hearts of critics and shoppers alike for over 40 years. Lauren's advertising imagery (much of it shot by renowned photographer Bruce Weber) has been creating an idealized and almost cinematic picture of American life since the early '80s, and in more recent years they've starred everyone from Naomi Campbell and Gisele Bundchen to Oscar-winning actress Penelope Cruz.
So today, as we don our polo shirts and concho belts in honor of one of America's favorite designers, we're also taking a look at Lauren's most iconic ads. See some of our favorites, here in the gallery. Happy Birthday, Ralph Lauren!
Master of plaid, puff coats, and denim, Ralph Lauren does all-American-girl style like no one else. With layering season in full effect, we can't think of a better time to bundle up in the brand's Denim & Supply collection, featuring a cozy lineup of on-trend essentials. Take on the chill factor in the latest Fall arrivals, filled with leather leggings, moto jackets, anoraks, intarsia prints, and a cool assortment of boots and bags to finish the look.
The silver screen's biggest stars hit the Emmy Awards red carpet, and it didn't take long for us to spot our fashionable favorites. For starters, Claire Danes brought it in a backless blush Armani Privé dress, and Allison Williams stood out from the flock thanks to her bold blue Ralph Lauren Collection gown. Kerry Washington gave us pure romance in her pale Marchesa dress with gold-thread accents and dimensional flowers, while it was all about the drama for Michelle Dockery's head-to-toe Prada ensemble. And perhaps earning most-improved status, Zooey Deschanel traded her normally ultragirlie style for a far more sophisticated J. Mendel dress. Although plenty of trophies were awarded at the ceremony, the winner of this best-dressed breakdown is just as important. Cast your vote below.

There's no denying the elegant simplicity of Allison Williams's blue Ralph Lauren Collection gown. Its brilliant color and impeccable construction took center stage in the absence of any ornamentation — offering a new take on minimalism. And to finish it off? Just a few Fred Leighton jewels — in a complementary shade of pink, no less.
