I chose a few shots from Ralph Lauren's Spring 2010 show as inspiration for Winter 2009. I'm not normally a huge RL fan, but I really liked this line. Being the retro lover that I am, I enjoyed this version - it seemed very fresh. You can see the inspiration stems from "The Great Depression" and was revamped and modernized for "The Great Recession".
This look is very simple to achieve and can probably come right out of your closet. The baggy/cuffed jeans have recently been seen and the button down shirt and blazer are classics everyone should have. I personally enjoy the feminine touch with the chiffon blouses and the strappy heels. I love a good mix of masculinity and femininity.
