Ralph Lauren | Festive Knitwear
As we prepare for the long days of autumn and winter and get ready to wrap up warm and cosy, it's time to look to one of our favourite products of the season - the festive knit. What we love is that they are perfect for the days surrounding the upcoming festive period but can be worn from now right through to the end of winter, into early spring without looking out of place. Ideal for layering on unpredictable days, dress them with jeans and coats for the big outdoors or with tartan and tweed for a festive feel.
Known for their iconic range of festive knits is designer Ralph Lauren, with a selection of different designs every season that look like they belong in a scene from a holiday greeting card. Alongside their traditional chunky knits featuring reindeer and the like are a selection of Instarsia knits - a technique using blocks of colour and pattern, Fair Isle knits - a design typically in the form of rows of patterns with a maximum of four colors, from the remote Scottish Shetlands and Alpine knits that usually depict skiing, trees and snowflakes.
Ralph Lauren's Festive Jumper Collection
With so many to choose from, we've picked out of top 5 of the season for boys, girls and babies ...
1. GREEN FAIR ISLE JUMPER
The dark green shade of this alpine jumper is as fresh as the driven snow and the seasonal snowflakes make it all the more festive! If we could describe Christmas in a jumper this would be it - designed especially for baby boys, this soft knitted cotton sweater is top of our festive knit wish list.
STYLE WITH | These cute beige classic chino trousers, and this matching dark green festive, checked flannel shirt.
2. GIRLS RED FESTIVE JUMPER
Nothing says 'Christmas' or 'Holidays' more than a red jumper with reindeers and a Ralph Lauren logo! This one is super sweet as it comes with a cute frilled peplum for an extra-feminine touch. Available for babies through to teen girls, it has cute wooden buttons on the shoulder which not only give it a more rustic, festive feel but make it easy to slip over the head.
Save this as something special for Christmas day and then wear right through until spring.
3. GIRLS FAIR ISLE CARDIGAN
Whoever said pastels were just for spring? Not as traditional for the festive season as red and green, however delicate pastel shades have been a trend for the past few winter seasons. This pretty Fair Isle knit cardigan is great as you get two products in one - wear buttoned up like a jumper with trousers, skirts and jeans or layer it over a dress with the buttons unfastened to show the details of their outfit. Made with a mix of wool and alpaca, it's not only soft, but lightweight so makes it perfect for layering.
STYLE WITH | Layer over this blue chambray dress made from Ralph Lauren's iconic chambray shirt fabric with embroidered logo.
4. BOYS IVORY HOODED SWEATER
We couldn't include a jumper edit without Ralph Lauren's now famous bear motif. This one says it's for boys, however we think it works just as well for both boys and girls - after all, what little girls aren't in love with teddy bears and this daddy bear is super-adorable. Made from their signature chunky knitted cotton - what is so special about these jumpers is that they are really soft and it's the touch of luxury cashmere that ensures they are just so. More of an outside option - save this jumper for snowy days or ensure that they're super stylish on the slopes this winter,
STYLE WITH | Layer under this boys' puffer gilet - filled with luxury feather and down, made from water repellant, recycled nylon - for full on aprés-ski chic.

Holidays are defintely coming when you see the Ralph Lauren bear on red with a snowflake pattern! This one has been designed exclusively for the 2021 festive season, made from soft, chunky knit cotton with ribbed cuffs and a cosy little hood.
STYLE WITH | A perfectly picked holiday wardrobe is never complete without the quintessential print for the season. - tartan plaid. For a festive pattern clash, wear over this cute tartan dress to show just a hint of plaid below the hem. For something simpler, pair with some classic jeans - these dark blue girls' jeggings will see them through to spring and summer.
The Ralph Lauren Polo Bear
Did you know - the inspiration behind the iconic Ralph Lauren bear is famous teddy bear designer Steiff. An avid collector of the bears, Ralphs's brother Jerry - the creative director of the menswear collections - introduced these adorable bears to him and Ralph liked them so much that he agreed for the bear to become part of their designs. The bear - known simply as 'the Polo bear' now graces the clothing of the menswear, womenswear and kidswear collections and always makes an appearance around the holiday season.
