With Independence Day getting closer and closer, you may be shopping for a Ralph Lauren Flag sweater as a way to show off your patriotism. Ralph Lauren's Flag Sweater, from the Polo line, has achieved a fairly legendary status. Quite popular among the jet set and eighties fashionistas, this historic and retro sweater is making a comeback this season. Perfect for dusk walks along a Nantucket beach, this shirt simultaneously shows off your patriotism, style and status as a tennis playing, polo watching blue blood. There's probably no better way to keep the bracing Atlantic wind off of you while you sip wine on your yacht. Since these desirable sweaters are so hot right now, however, you may be wondering how to shop for them. Read on to learn some tips!
It is important, especially with sweaters, to know what size you should purchase. Because the Ralph Lauren Flag Sweater is knit from a cotton linen blend, the sweater is liable to stretch if you buy it too small. When purchasing a sweater like this, it might be best to buy a size or two up from your regular size. For example, if you normally do quite well with a medium sized shirt, consider purchasing your Ralph Lauren Flag Sweater in a large or perhaps even an extra large. Not only will this keep your sweater from undue stretching and potential ripping, but it will look good on you as well. People like to wear sweaters like this to relax in, and they often go well slung casually over a pair of short shorts or bikini bottoms.
If you do not have a Ralph Lauren store that you can go to to purchase this sweater, consider looking in a large department store. Most suburban areas have malls with plenty of department stores that carry all the latest and hippest styles.
