If you didn't win that gig live-tweeting during Friends to celebrate the NBC sitcom's 25th anniversary, there's now another way you can honor the show: Dress like Rachel. Ralph Lauren just made that easier, with its announcement of a new "ready-to-wear" collection inspired by Rachel Green, the character played by Jennifer Aniston. Ad Age reports the line will feature "autumnal pieces like turtlenecks, black leather trousers, and crested blazers, as well as lots of plaid." Harper's Bazaar adds there will also be "pin-striped suits ... mini and midi skirts, as well as a dash of leopard print."

CNN Style notes the name of the collection, which was created in collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and will be available at select Bloomingdale's locations: "The One Where They Wore Ralph Lauren." "The collection is a celebration of the brand's role in the series," said Ralph Lauren in a statement. "Just as Friends proved to be a perennial favorite series for viewers over the last 25 years, this collection reflects Ralph Lauren's timeless styles and archetypes that have remained a go-to for the modern working woman."
