In partnership with Ralph Lauren
Mariah Carey has decreed that the festive season is officially upon us (and the weather has taken a turn too). This also means it’s officially time to start gift planning (yes, for both yourself and others).
Ralph Lauren is big on blending fashion and tradition, so it’s a perfect fit when it comes to finding something special for the cosy Christmas season.
Attitude Fashion Director Joseph Kocharian has been taken a look at what the famous US brand has to offer this Christmas, whether it be picture-perfect partywear (yes, after a year off, Yuletide drinks are finally back), warm winter essentials or smart watches and suits.
The Ralph Lauren Teddybear
Everyone loves a bear, right? The Ralph Lauren teddy-bear became a firm favourite a few years ago, and their love affair with our furry friend is still going strong. Breaking out from knitwear, the RL teddy has found its way onto all types of apparel and accessories, including gloves, water bottles, bags, ties and watches. It’s just too damned cute.

If you’re going to get someone socks or underwear for Christmas, you better do it properly. Polo Ralph Lauren has everything from a retro sport sock, sports pop socks, and beautiful trouser socks (some even with our favourite RL teddy bear on them). Their three pack boxers and brief packs are equally impressive, ensuring that you have something impressive in your package this Christmas.

Hats, Scarves and Gloves
Ralph Lauren have got every type of cosy with their hats, gloves and scarves, including wool blend beanies, cable-knit accessories, and even cashmere for when you want something super soft. There are plenty of patterns, pom-poms, teddy bears, and holiday season colours that make us feel like we’re straight out of a Home Alone film, which is exactly where we want to be (well, until we can fulfil our Vanessa Hudgens’ Princess Switch aspirations).

Party season is back for 2021 (the depressing zoom Christmas parties of last year are long gone). Ralph are great with a bit of tailoring, offering you everything from the classics, to suits and accessories with striking details if you want to stand out a bit more at this party season. The fashion team are particularly feeling those '90s formalwear vibes, such as the camel colourways and navy and white pinstripes.
