A mix between boarding school prepster and sexy Americana style, Tommy Hilfiger has captured the essence of American fashion since breaking into menswear in 1985.  Hilfiger’s women’s wear collections show his classic menswear aesthetic with a Tommy-boy twist.  A girl next door femme-fetale of sorts.  The Fall Winter 2014 collection presents the great outdoors via chalet charm with a Fraulein flair.  Western shirt accents, buttoned-up collars, embellished trim, plaid and velvet are the perfect mix of fabrics and designs to keep you warm and toasty all winter long.

How He’s Making A Difference: 

As Mr. Hilfiger once said, “My mother inspired me to treat others as I would want to be treated regardless of age, race or financial status.”  2014 is the eighth consecutive year, Hilfiger will design a limited edition handbag in support of Breast Health International.  One-third of sales benefit women and families with resources to help cover costs of treatment.  Famous friends Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer modeled previous ad campaigns to bring awareness to the charity bags.

The Tommy Hilfiger Corporate Foundation supports many causes from autism to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  1.2 million dollars have been provided for autism research and awareness.  “I have always believed that we can make a difference in people’s lives through the Corporate Foundation, and I am excited that we will partner with this amazing group of organizations,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “Autism research and awareness, education, and programs that address the needs of our most vulnerable families and young people are so important in today’s world.”

Tommy Hilfiger Fall Winter 2014 Collection:

Three Words:  Urban Alpine Cowgirl.

Favorites: Denim, fluffy aviator jacket, cozy short dresses, heeled boots, layers, layers, layers.

Verdict:  The only thing missing?  A hot toddy.
