Wild West

I've been on a road trip--the cause of my delayed posting--and as I headed west towards Texas I couldn't help but think of America's cowboy heritage. Who better to embody the American spirit than Ralph Lauren? His collections are often infused with touches of western wear with details like turquoise, silver and Native American prints.Ralph Lauren even showcases the style in his own wardrobe, as seen here in chaps with a touch of fringe.
So here's to the days of the wild west with Buffalo Bill, Annie Oakley and the untamed landscape.
