Some brands are so deeply woven into the fabric of contemporary fashion that they don’t need to reinvent themselves. Polo Ralph Lauren falls squarely into this category. Having outfitted America’s prep scene and much of the hip-hop community throughout the ‘90s and ‘00s, it’s no stretch to say it's a cross-genre icon at this point. But, with the Polo Ralph Lauren FW21 collection, the brand has a distinctively modern focus.
As well as the trusted favorites like embellished knitwear and corduroy shirts, this season sees Polo Ralph Lauren venture into the world of technical sportswear with a range of double-knit pieces complete with contemporary detailing.
To usher in a new wave of Polo Ralph Lauren staples, we’ve rounded up 10 of our top picks of the season with the help of HHV.
Shop the best of Polo Ralph Lauren Fall/Winter 2021 below.
Bonded Hi-Pile Long Sleeve
Every fall/winter wardrobe needs a handful of zip-through fleeces to cater to layering and, obviously, coziness. This paneled iteration is a departure from the preppy knits we're used to at Ralph Lauren, but no less attractive.
Double Knit Long Sleeve Sweatshirt
Ralph has been fulfilling our crewneck needs for years, but this double-knit construction finished with a zip pocket to the chest is a newcomer.
Recycled Polyester El Cap Parka
Winter doesn't know what's about to hit it. This lengthy puffer is basically the only piece of outerwear you need for when the mercury drops.
Sport Fleece Long Sleeve 1/3 Zip Sweatshirt
In classic varsity style, this grey 1/3 zip pullover takes inspiration from retro tracksuits.
Double Knit Tech Cargo Pant
A tapered fit and elasticated cuffs make these cotton cargo pants another central aspect of the brand's renewal.
Corduroy Long Sleeve Sport Shirt
Alongside new arrivals are the trusted classics like this corduroy shirt. In deep green, it's set for your muted seasonal wardrobe.
Classic Tapered Fit Prepster
As the name suggests, these beige chinos are a favorite of the prep gang and with a new era of prep taking off right now, it's high time you invested in the staple.
Cotton Blend Long Sleeve Pullover
One of Ralph Lauren's most iconic pieces, the pony-logo knit is part of every collection. Combining the teddy bear and pony logo, this one is a celebration of all things Ralph.
YD Long Sleeve Rugby Jersey
The beauty of prep essentials is that they're highly versatile. Style this rugby long-sleeve with your stay-at-home sweats or tailored trousers — it will never look out of place.
Cotton Tube Crew Socks
A figurative cherry on top (or bottom) of every fit this season should be a pair of classic Ralph Lauren crew socks. You can't go wrong.
