Fabulous in Fair Isle

It all started by saving a simple fair isle sweater picture to my inspiration file.. which sent me me on a quest for adding one to my cool weather wardrobe and trackin down this winter trend! Dolce & Gabbana had a great take on the iconic weave in their Fall 2010 runway show and gave it an update with chunky knits and furry boots.
So when exactly did this traditional sweater become cool? I don't know but I'm not complaining-- I'm in favor of any look that allows you to be cozy and stylish. It's really easy to give a classic winter look a trendy edge, by pairing it with a trendy buffalo plaid, heeled hiking boot, or lacy cardigan.

I love these types of sweaters I just never know exactly how to style them! I really love the D&G high necked cream and black one. I think thats the perfect silhouette for them: belted, tights, and a great pair of boots.

I was looking up Fair Isle the other day. I think it looks so perfect with just a simple pair of dark jeans.
